Why you should use a VPN in 2019
Why should i use a VPN?
The internet has changed the world — which means it’s changed the way many crimes are committed and the way we look at privacy.
Today, you are more likely to be the victim of a cyber attack than you are to be in a car accident, or to experience a physical break-in.
Below are just a few related articles from different sources, cyber crime related:
- Hackers attack exposed computers once every 39 seconds.
- 231,354 data records are lost or stolen every eight hours.
- Globally, cybercrime is the second most reported crime.
- 74% of polled individuals have limited their internet usage due to security concerns.
According to the 2018 McAfee’s Economic Impact of Cyber Crime, “Cyber crime is relentless, undiminished, and unlikely to stop. It is just too easy and too rewarding, and the chances of being caught and punished are perceived as being too low.”
If you don’t protect yourself online, you are setting yourself up for massive failure. But fortunately, there is a very simple solution: using a reputable VPN on your devices mitigates many risks posed by cyber criminals.
Besides the cyber criminals you are also exposing your data to pretty much anyone (your internet provider, your computer skilled neighbor and so on).
