How to set up a VPN

Virtual private networks, more commonly referred to as VPNs, can provide users with an additional layer of security and privacy for their online activity. Whether you are using a public Wi-Fi network and want to escape prying eyes, or if you are simply worried about privacy in general, a VPN can offer a lot of benefits, as it establishes a secure and encrypted connection between your device and a private server, which hides your traffic from others.
