What is a VPN and Why Would a Traveler Need One?

What is a VPN and Why Would a Traveler Need One?

A Virtual Private Network works for the traveler in these ways:


Privacy Protection:  In a nutshell, a VPN will encrypt your data and hide your location.  It protects against hackers, scammers, and keeps your location private.


Enjoy Streaming Services Overseas:  Many services like Netflix and other streaming apps may not be available overseas.  But through a VPN, you may be able to enjoy your favorite movies and programs just as if you were at home.


Save Money Online:  Some airlines, rentals, restaurants, and accommodations may change their pricing due to your location.  Since a VPN can hide your actual location, you might not be subject to these higher prices.


The best part about a VPN like Surfshark is that they are inexpensive and very easy to use.
