Is getting a VPN for your Raspberry Pi worth it?

A Raspberry Pi virtual private network (VPN) is worth it for anyone that cares about their online privacy and security. By encrypting your internet traffic and changing your IP address, a reliable VPN service prevents anyone monitoring your connection (including your internet service provider, or ISP) from learning what you do and where you go online.

And that’s not all. Getting a VPN for Raspberry Pi lets you bypass many forms of online censorship, giving you access to foreign versions of websites, shops, and apps even in restrictive environments. It may even improve your internet speed if your ISP has been throttling your connection based on specific online activities.
