On August 19, International VPN Day, we celebrate people’s right to digital privacy, security, and freedom.
Internet users’ online data and privacy are at risk. Whenever people go online, there’s always someone watching: internet service providers, marketers, network administrators. In some countries, it’s even worse – users have to deal with internet restrictions and censored content. Not to mention the massive data breaches that happen more and more often.
Virtual private networks are one of the best ways to fight for online freedom and security. It protects internet users from surveillance, censorship, and cybercrime.
But we understand that a day is not enough to take it all in – that’s why VPN Awareness Month is here. We plan to use this time to educate people about online threats, internet censorship, and personal cybersecurity tools they can use to protect their digital lives.
So make sure to follow us on your favorite platform to learn more about VPN history, tips and tricks for online security, and dos and don'ts of the VPN world.
