Online Privacy and Security

What is a VPN and why do I need one?

A VPN or Virtual Private Network allows you make a secure connection to another network over the internet. Originally designed as a way to connect business networks privately and securely over the internet, they have in recent times become very popular and commercially available as a way to access region restricted content on streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon video or the BBC iplayer, hide your browsing activity from your Internet service Provider, protect yourself on-line using public Wi-Fi and much more.

 

How does it work?

A VPN connects to your PC, laptop or Phone to another computer somewhere on the internet which in turn allows you to browse the internet using that computers internet connection and if that computer just happens to be in a different country then you can access content that wouldn't normally be available to you in your own country.
