What is VPN?
What is VPN and what is its effect in our lives?
Today, we live in a modern world wherein internet is a big part of our daily lives and routine. We use the internet to communicate with loved ones and co-workers. We use it to do research for our jobs and our projects in school. Some might even say that they can’t live without internet. But with the internet bill skyrocketing, can all of us handle it?
Also known as Virtual Private Network enables users to send and receive data through a private network which extends to a public network. By using this application, a user can have the benefits from the functionality, security and management — the same as a private user’s benefits.
What are the PROs and CONs of VPN?
It actually has many benefits. When you use it, you will be able to browse anonymously, which means your privacy is very secured. Whoever want their privacy blurted out to the whole world, right?
Second, this is actually cheaper than the normal internet plan. You can avail a VPN for as low as $3 a month.
But of course, all good things come to an end.
Virtual Private Network apps are limited. There are websites that they can’t access because of added security. One example is the KissAsian website. I tried to access it using a VPN but to no avail.
Also, when using this application, you will be using a different server. So if the website that you are visiting is only available to a certain country, then I’m sorry but you can’t access it as well.
And don’t forget about repairs and maintenance of a VPN. Once it’s on going a maintenance, then it’s unusable.
