Using a VPN? Make sure you don't make this very costly mistake

Cybercriminals are taking advantage of the disruption to everyday life caused by the pandemic to launch additional cyberattacks and online scams which is why many users have started using a VPN to protect themselves online.

A VPN (virtual private network) is an increasingly popular tool that secures your internet connection and allows you to browse the web anonymously.

This is because a VPN allows you to use a different IP address than the one provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) online.

Additionally, by changing server locations while connected, you can make it appear as if you’re in a different state or even in a different country.

Using a VPN while working from home is an additional step people can take to secure their connections and protect their privacy but in this case, it ended up doing more harm than good.

You will usually see better speeds and less latency when connecting to a VPN server closer to your actual location than to one farther away or in a different country.
