Why I Use a Virtual Private Network
Are You Using Protection?
My phone was hacked while using a Wi-Fi two weeks ago in a well-known Los Angeles hotel. I caught the intrusion early and avoided any issues. If I didn’t have a pretty good handle on tech, I would have never noticed the issue or found the problem.
Because I use public Wi-Fi and hotspots all the time (airports, courthouses, restaurants, coffee shops, opposing counsel’s office, deposition and mediation locations), I did my due diligence and am now using a NordVPN private network (affiliate link). It’s inexpensive and easy to use.
Once you download the app to your phone or iPad, you set it and forget it. NordVPN automatically goes to work to, behind the scenes, to protect you. I’ve been testing NordVPN for the last two weeks, and it’s great!
I’m glad I detected the network intrusion right away and before any of my data was taken. If you’re interested in being proactive and avoiding this problem, take a look at the NordVPN cyber deal that’s going on right now (3 months free) for the next 8 hours or so. I did the $3.49/month 3-year deal (it’s 70% off and also gives you a 30-day money-back guarantee). Now, I automatically enjoy the ultimate online security when I’m out in public.
NordVPN also works on your laptop, desktop, and routers, and I’ll probably add the extra layer of protection in the next week or so. One subscription lets you cover several different devices.
Here’s my affiliate link if you’re interested. Again, this is a paid app/service that’s been recommended to me for a long time, and I’m glad I finally took the time to check it out and add it to my online protection.
If you get NordVPN, let me know what you think after you’ve tried it for a few days. I can’t even tell it’s running in the background on my phone unless I take the time to do a security check (you can click on a link and test/check your privacy connection).
