The device’s IP is your digital address. And if you go commando with your original IP address on the web then it is likely that your sensitive data might get compromised.

It can happen in multiple ways. Like connecting to an unsecured open Wi-Fi network of the nearest coffee house or by clicking something you shouldn’t click in the first place.

Hackers can get their way into the open networks easily as Wi-Fis are still using the encryption types which have been cracked before.

Putting all those aside, even if no one is on to you, your internet service provider or government agencies can still monitor your traffic and track you.

But all that can be avoided by connecting to a private network. Other than the security concerns, VPNs can help you access the geo-restricted content on the internet including websites, apps, and movies on streaming platforms.

You can also save some money while buying products online because retailers use dynamic pricing and E-Stores can charge you differently according to your geographical location.

So all you need to do is set up a VPN on your device and you’re good to go.

A VPN will encrypt all your internet traffic and pass it through a VPN server to geo-spoof your location in no time.

Using a VPN is easy. First, sign up for a VPN plan. Download the VPN app on your device. Sign in with your VPN account and connect to a VPN server.

But of course, you have to make sure that you choose a reliable VPN provider first. A provider that offers you just enough features and assures the privacy you need.

Some of the trusted VPN companies are

ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN is based in the British Virgin Islands and it’s one of the oldest players in the VPN industry.
