How to Now VPN?

Now that COVID-19 is no longer a theoretical danger to our health, the world has altered
its focus to more urgent matters. Life as we know it has changed, and the need to protect
our privacy has never been greater. Thankfully, VPN technology has not only adapted with
the times, but has also simplified the way we protect our privacy and stay safe online. Here’s
a quick guide to help you get started with a VPN in just four simple steps.

Step one: Choose a VPN plan

The first step in choosing a VPN is to decide on a plan. Do you want to be billed
monthly or annually? How many simultaneous connections do you need? What level of security
do you require? SSL or TLS encryption? And the most important consideration: How fast can
you expect the VPN to be? Is this a concern for you, as you’re switching between work
and personal usage?

Step two: Review the features

The second step in choosing a VPN is to consider its features. What type of connectivity
does the VPN offer? Is file sharing allowed? How about P2P file sharing? Can you connect
to multiple devices at once? Do you need a killswitch for the service (in case you
connected to a public network and needed to stop the service)?

Step three: Consider your personal needs

The third step in choosing a VPN is to consider your personal needs. What are
your primary concerns? Is speed a concern? Does price matter when you’re looking for a
free service? Do you need to access the service from multiple locations?

Step four: Read reviews and watch tutorials

The last step in choosing a VPN is to research reviews and watch tutorials. This
step is extremely important, as it will help you determine whether or not the service is
right for you. Reviews and tutorials are an excellent way to research a VPN, as they tend to
consist of objective, third-party information.

Now you have the basics down, it’s time to move on to connecting to the service
and ensuring you’re completely hidden and secure whenever you use it.

Step one: Install the VPN app

The first step in connecting to a VPN is to install the application. If you’re using
a Mac, you can get the VPN app from the Apple App Store. If you’re using a PC, visit the
Google Play Store and download the Virtual Private Network app. Once installed, just
launch the app and log in with your email and password. You will then see a dashboard
pop up, showing you your various connection options.

Step two: Connect to the VPN

The next step is to connect to the VPN. To do this, click the menu at the top
right of the dashboard, then select Connect.

You will then be prompted to enter the name and password for your VPN server. You can
also find this information in the documentation for your VPN app.

Step three: Choose a username and password

Once you’ve connected to the VPN, it’s time to choose a username and password. To
do this, click the gear icon at the top right of the dashboard, then select Settings.

You will then be presented with the Settings screen. Here, you can find the
username and password for your account. Keep in mind that these credentials can be used
to access your account at any time, so make sure they’re easy to remember.

Step four: Test your connection

Once you’ve connected to the VPN and chosen a username and password, it’s time to test
your connection. To do this, return to the dashboard and click on the status icon beside
your VPN connection. You will then see a green checkmark next to your status, indicating
that you’re connected and able to use the service.

If you want to test the connection further, simply disconnect and then reconnect to the
service. You will then see that your connection has been temporarily disconnected, as the
VPN software has detected that you’ve tried to switch to a distinct IP address (a practice
known as IP fragmentation). To get back to your previous IP address, just click on the
Connection Settings menu, then click on the drop-down menu and select Release
Local IP.

When you’re done testing your connection, just click the Settings menu again and
select Keep VPN Active.

At this point, you can configure your VPN connection as desired – whether you want
to connect only during office hours, or if you want to use an automatic login, or if you want
to use a specific DNS server. Just remember: You can always toggle options by pressing
the menu button at the top right of the screen, then selecting the appropriate menu item.

Secure and private when traveling

Now that you’re up and running with a VPN, you can use it to secure and
privacy when traveling. To do this, just open the Google Play Store on your phone,
search for the VPN app you used to install, then click on the Install button to the right
of the app.

When installed, just launch the app and log in with your email and password. Using
a VPN when traveling means your personal information is always protected, whether you’re
browsing the web or making calls.

If you’re using a public WiFi connection while abroad, be sure to check whether or not
your VPN app is set to automatically login to the account. If this is the case, you will
not be required to input your credentials each time you use the service. Just launch the
app and use it as usual.

If you’re not sure how to use a VPN while traveling, here is a comprehensive how-to
guide, which will introduce you to the topic and show you examples of how to use a VPN
while traveling.

Overall,

With the world changing daily due to the pandemic, it’s important to keep up-to-date
with the ever-changing technology that can protect our privacy. VPN technology has
already adjusted to suit our needs, and with its ever-expanding feature set, it stands to
reason that its benefits will continue to grow.
