There are a million reasons to use a VPN, but the ability to hide your IP address, re-route your connection and become completely anonymous are certainly chief among them.
Before we go on it’s worth saying that if you aren’t using a VPN yet, you’re missing out. But once you decide you’re ready to take your privacy seriously and open up the range of content a VPN can provide, how do you choose the right service?
Let’s talk privacy.
ALL VPNs encrypt your data, change your IP address and re-route your connection. Any VPN will give you solid protection from unsavory hackers, criminals, evil masterminds, or whoever is trying to get your data. But if you’re really concerned about privacy, it’s time to think outside the obvious…
Like we said, any VPN will protect your data from outsiders. But what about the VPN itself? How much data do they hold onto? Lots of VPNs preach privacy, but keep logs of every site you visit, every file you download, and your login locations.
See where we’re going?
Although that data is locked up, all it takes in most countries is a court order to make all your carefully protected information completely public.
But here’s the good news.
AWESOME VPN’s like SumRando delete their user logs. That means, that even if a court orders us to turn over your protected information, we won’t and simply can’t.
What you do online is your business.
Look, there are a lot of great VPNs out there (but we’re pretty sure ours is the best), so when you’re shopping around, READ THE FINE PRINT. There’s no sense in paying for protection when all you get is a false sense of security.
