Learn how VPN can secure your data

Last year, the US Federal Communications Commission passed strict privacy regulations, banning ISPs (Internet Service Providers) from using subscriber private data without consent. However, on March 28, 2017, the US Congress voted to reverse these regulations, allowing ISPs to collect and share various sensitive information about their users. President Trump has already signed the repeal into law.

It means that an Internet provider can sell their users’ private data to third parties, such as ad buyers, ad aggregators, and anyone else who might want to use it for their purposes.

Besides retaining and selling user’s browsing history, ISPs have specific ways to collect data, some more intrusive than others. For instance, ISPs scan users’ online data to check for viruses and determine data priority. However, this method can also be used to log and sell anonymized user data in batches that include location, name, age, shopping records and so on.

Luckily, you can keep your information private and hidden from ISPs by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network). A VPN creates a secure tunnel of encryption between your device and a remote Internet server, protecting any sensitive information. The only information visible to an ISP is that a user is connected to a VPN server and nothing else. All other information is encrypted by the VPN’s security protocol.

Reasons to use NordVPN in the US

success

Cybercrime

Issue: Like every other aspect of commerce, economic crime has gone digital. In 2015, $15 billion was stolen from 13.1 million US consumers. It’s very important to be careful when sharing sensitive information over the Internet, especially on public networks that may or may not be properly secured.

Solution: NordVPN increases online security. It encrypts your Internet traffic with military-grade security protocols, making it extremely difficult to intercept.

success

Surveillance practices

Issue: The NSA continues bulk collection of US citizens’ communication records. These surveillance practices are mandated by laws such as CISA, but the public knows little about what types of data are collected and who can access the retained information. In the best-case scenario, only metadata is collected. It still shows the date, time and duration of the communication, the involved phone numbers and IP addresses, their locations and more.

Solution: NordVPN increases online security. It encrypts your Internet traffic with military-grade security protocols, making it extremely difficult to intercept.

success

P2P Sharing

Issue: Although P2P has some perfectly legal uses, some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) block access to file-sharing sites or restrict user’s bandwidth.

Solution: NordVPN is a P2P-friendly service, allowing to hide your online activity from your Internet service provider (ISP). We keep no usage logs and have no bandwidth limits.

success

Device connectivity

Issue: The average North American home has seven active connected devices. Protecting all of them with a VPN may be quite expensive.

Solution: NordVPN offers an option to connect up to 6 devices to a single VPN account. Best of all, you can use NordVPN to secure your router, protecting all devices on the network with just one slot.
