Is ‘VPN’ New Word For You?
If yes, then firstly let me explain that what is VPN? VPN (Virtual Private Network) is the service that helps to protect your (or the one who avails this service) online activities over the internet, wi-fi, hotspot (etc) from the cyber criminals.
The best 10 VPN service providers are being listed here that accept Bitcoin payment method. Before that, I want to tell some benefits of VPN;
Online Security; Usage of VPN is better for security conscious people.
Identity Protection; VPN service protects your identity from the virtual world.
Hide Real Place; You can be a dweller of another country with unique IP address (countries are vary from one provider to another and one package to another).
Unblock Websites; you can easily enter the blocked websites, P2P file sharing service, or VoIP applications with the help of VPN service.
These are the major benefits of using a VPN. Now, what are the disadvantages of using a Virtual Private Network (aka VPN);
A Big Disadvantage; VPN provider becomes the third party between you and your network activities. If someone avails such VPN service that has no credibility then no doubt that VPN provider itself can be a cause of leaking your personal information such as; login and banking details. This disadvantage depends on your selection that how much credible your chosen VPN provider is.
Recommendation: Choose the right one, if you cannot judge the best VPN service provider yourself, then take a help of skilled VPN advisor. Check out the top 10 listings of around 5 to 10 websites. Keep the note in your mind that which VPN service provider is listed in most of the listings. Another way is to read the customer reviews, and also read the threads on relevant forums or blogs. One key point; never ever go with free VPN service.spending few dollars is better than welcoming to hackers to damage you completely.
