3 Ways a VPN Protects You

2 min

A lot has been already spoken about a VPN’s advantages. That may be one of the reasons why you are here on the TuxlerVPN blog as an existing or potential user in the first place. In this article, we’ll spare you a rewind on those advantages. Instead, we’ll talk about the different ways in which a virtual private network protects you.

In this blog, we have always discussed the ever-growing, hostile nature of the world wide web. Today it’s not safe to surf the web without protection. In addition to device protection, you also need privacy tools that protect you when you are online. One of them is a VPN.

How a VPN Protects You Online

Let’s take some time to go through the different ways in which a VPN protects and secures you online.

A VPN can hide your tracks online

You already know this as it is perhaps the #1 reason why individual users opt to use a VPN. When you browse the internet through a VPN tunnel, you don’t leave footprints on your original connection. Instead, your IP address is concealed by an arbitrary VPN IP. In TuxlerVPN’s case, this is a residential IP.

What this does is separate you from your web activities. Assume that you visited a website while using a VPN. If a snooper or a surveillance agency decides to track your activities by monitoring your original IP address, they won’t find anything at first look. They will require a whole lot of tech and advanced efforts to unearth anything, if at all. Even your ISP will have trouble finding your tracks.

This type of protection is crucial in today’s digital age. With it, you can safeguard your online privacy, secure your personal and financial data, and surf the web almost anonymously.

In most cases, having a VPN just for this purpose will give complete value for your money. That is if you decide to get a paid VPN like TuxlerVPN’s Premium plan. It also makes sense to use a VPN across devices such as your smartphone, work laptop, and personal notebook.

A VPN secures your personal data

Did you know that when you visit a website, it collects your data such as browser information, web location, and session details? Although they claim much of this to be collected anonymously, which to an extent is true, it is still data that may be used against you. In fact, such data is what helps advertisers execute their remarketing tactics. Ever seen an ad about perfumes crop up on your Facebook feed after having looked for them on another site the previous day?

As noted above, a VPN detaches you from your online actions. While your data may still be collected, it will be largely anonymous. If you value your privacy, you are better off browsing the internet anonymously.

A VPN helps you switch locations

Whether it is for a college project or just some entertainment, you may sometimes have a need to visit a site that’s censored in your country. In such a scenario, a VPN can help you access it without any extra effort. Just switch on the VPN, choose a server in a country where the site is not blocked, and access it. 

You can do all this without revealing your original web location to the website or your ISP. Such concealment allows you to stay private with your browsing.

A VPN is a critical privacy tool that can protect you and secure your data when you go online. Never used a VPN before? Try TuxlerVPN today.
