VPN stands for “virtual private network” — a service that protects your internet connection and privacy online. VPNs create an encrypted tunnel for your data, protect your online identity by hiding your IP address, and allow you to use public Wi-Fi hotspots safely.
End point protection is protection from your device to the connection to the internet i.e. the router (no more). Once the packet has left the Wifi, it does not use the VPN.
No one likes to be watched or tracked – even if they have nothing to hide. That’s why it’s important you step up your privacy game.
Here’s when you need a VPN:
Like gaming online? You can forget about DDoS attacks and bandwidth throttling with certain VPN’s. It’s a VPN gamers love: you’ll get the fastest connection speeds, and easily set up secure virtual LAN parties with your friends.
Government agencies, marketers, and internet service providers would all love to track and collect your browsing history, messages, and other private data. Best way to hide it? Using a VPN to keep your data to yourself.
Use a VPN to secure your connection on public Wi-Fi, so you can browse in full privacy even when you’re far away from home. Hackers have many methods to steal your data on public hotspots, but with a VPN your online traffic is invisible to them.
A perfect example of who should use a VPN is a small business that shares their Wifi with their customers. If that small business has a merchant facility, it is imperative to use a VPN to encrypt the traffic from the merchant facility to the router as someone could sit in the cafe and snoop on the merchant facility. Now the merchant facility would be a HTTPS connection, but I would be able to see the packet from the merchant facility.
