Quite simply Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are becoming increasingly more important in todays society as the threat of having our information stolen by hackers is on the increase.
VPNs encrypt a users data once connected to the servers, providing a secure connection between a users device and the Internet...simples!
One of the benefits of using a VPN is over open public WiFi connections as this is where hackers are most likely to attack unsuspecting people such as coffee shops, airports and hotels. A good VPN such as Private Pipe Free VPN will prevent them trying to access your personal information.
