Why SHOULD you use a VPN?

The infographic touches just the basics, but a VPN can do a lot more than what is on the surface.

What we’ve learned in this small infographic?

  • Encrypts the stuff you do online so it can’t be seen.
  • Protects your privacy while on public WiFi such as cafes, airports, public libraries.
  • Stops man in the middle attacks. (A method used to still your information)
  • Unblocks access to restricted content by geographic restrictions (IE: watching Netflix US content in Canada).
  • Stops your Internet service from slowing you down.
  • Blocks unwanted AD’s.
  • Blocks web trackers, cookies that can identify who you are.
  • A good VPN offers 0 log retention. It cannot comply with law enforcement since it doesn’t record activities.
  • It offers servers around the world.

Depending on the service you choose to use, you can have other benefits that aren’t listed here. We’ve chosen Surfshark as our goto for our VPN needs. The offering of features is pretty big. We are looking at a strict no-log policy, you can use as many devices as you want, torrenting is allowed, you can unblock content that’s restricted in your area such as Netflix, it’s a secure service, and extra perks include multihop servers & Ad-Blocking.

Surfshark is only $2.69/mo Canadian or $64.56 for 24 months (2-years). **Note $1.99/mo USD.
