Before you purchase a VPN, do some research on which ones have good online reviews and how VPN works.

Ideally, your VPN must have:

  • Support for many devices
  • Numerous unique IP addresses
  • Lots of servers and server locations

However, most of the VPNs provide support for selective devices, and not for all. Also, VPNs vary in terms of how private they actually are.

Few other factors to consider before choosing a VPN are:

Privacy

Make sure the VPN doesn’t share or collect your personal information. Read the privacy policy of the VPN to find related information. …


You don’t need to purchase a VPN if:

  • You use HTTPS websites while surfing the web because they encrypt your traffic
  • You’re using your home WiFi or cellular data

However, you should use a VPN while:

  • you’re using public WiFi, such as the WiFi of supermarkets, coffee shops, etc. Because public WiFi is more prone to be hacked.
  • You’re using an app since you have no idea of the app traffic being encrypted or not

WORD OF CAUTION: This study shows, researchers have found that 5.5% of the 10,000 most popular websites (with HTTPS), have security issues.

So, if you’re on a business trip and you need public WiFi, it’s better to use a VPN for ensuring safety.
