Top 3 Reasons to Turn on Secure VPN


What is a VPN, and how does it work?

A VPN creates an encrypted data tunnel that allows you to connect to public Wi-Fi networks more securely. Whether you’re browsing on a public Wi-Fi connection or from your own home, your online activity will be viewed as coming from the VPN server’s location, instead of your device.

Keep your private information in and prying eyes out.

Do you manage your finances or access your medical information online?
Do you use your credit or debit card to make purchases online? 
Do you ever feel like you’re being followed around the web by advertisers?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you should consider turning on a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, which helps protect the data that you send and receive on Wi-Fi.

Here are the top three reasons to turn on Secure VPN:

1. Use public Wi-Fi networks more safely.

Public Wi-Fi networks may be convenient to use, but they can also be vulnerable to attacks by cybercriminals. Hackers can use internet “sniffing” software to access your online activity while you’re browsing unsecured networks. This information can be used to hijack your personal accounts or to transmit viruses to your mobile device or laptop. Turning on VPN can help cloak your online activity, and give you peace of mind when accessing public Wi-Fi.

2. Help protect your privacy.

Federal regulations allow cable companies and internet service providers to track and sell your online activities, like browsing history and app usage, sometimes without your consent. A VPN can help keep your data from being tracked, mined, and sold by helping keep your online activity private.

3. Enjoy browsing online without all the ad trackers.

Some VPNs feature a technology called “ad tracker blocking”. This feature helps prevent your device from being tracked by targeted advertisements online. This means that visiting a specific website won’t lead to you being followed around the web by advertisements from that website.

As a Norton subscriber, you’ve already taken an important step to protect yourself from threats online. Norton Secure VPN goes a step further to encrypt your information from prying eyes while it’s traveling to and from your device. Compatible with Mac, PC, and mobile devices, Norton Secure VPN is included in your Norton 360 subscription.
