Virtual Private Networks: 3 almost mandatory use cases

© Lemon squeezer

Virtual Private Networks (VPN) are software that emerged in the 1990s. Although initially they were only used in a professional context, they are now accessible to everyone. The advantages of these tools quickly appealed to the general public, because they not only allow you to be protected on the Internet but also to unlock new content, all while being very easy to use.

But you may still have a little difficulty seeing in which cases they can be useful. We will therefore take the example of NordVPN – renowned software – to present 3 typical situations.

When you are at home

When you're at home, you may be engaging in activities like streaming, gaming, or downloading torrents. In these three areas, NordVPN will help you. In fact, the provider has more than 5,800 servers in 60 countries around the world, which will allow you to change your virtual location. This way, you will be able to fool geolocation systems and unlock new content.

This applies to Netflix, but also to game servers and download platforms. But all this you will do while being protected by the anonymous browsing provided by the software. In addition, NordVPN has very good connection speeds, allowing you to navigate smoothly in all circumstances. Also, note that this editor allows you to benefit from unlimited bandwidth, which is not necessarily the case with your ISP.

The icing on the cake: NordVPN is already showing its Black Friday offer which allows you to take advantage of it for €80.73 for 27 months (i.e. €2.99 per month) thanks to 63% off. immediate discount and 3 months offered on the 2 year plan. So you can try it right away.

When you travel

When you travel, whether abroad or not, you connect to a host of public Wi-Fi networks. And it turns out that these are generally very insecure. NordVPN will therefore protect you so that you do not encounter any difficulties. To do this, it applies the same protection as on your home network. But what exactly is it?

The tool encrypts your connection end-to-end, and completely hides your IP address. No one can spy on you or hack you. This is also made possible by NordVPN’s multiple compatibility applications. It fits on computer, tablet and also smartphone.

Moreover, a subscription to NordVPN allows you to connect up to 6 at the same time , and the application is very easy to use. If you have any concerns, you can even call customer service available 24/7 via a live chat system.

Additional advantage: in the same way that NordVPN can give you access to foreign content when you are in France, its French servers allow you to do the opposite. You will therefore be able to watch French television from abroad, or access your local services and content without difficulty if you travel outside of France.

When you are at work

< p>The third case we want to mention here is when you are at work. If you use NordVPN at work, then your employer won't be able to see what you do online (this also applies to your ISP at home). Indeed, the anonymous browsing offered by the software prevents anyone from having a look at your activity.

Moreover, the provider even applies a strict no-logging policy, which allows you to ensures that your data and activity are not logged in any way. NordVPN even displays other security options, like the Kill Switch, which suspends your traffic if the VPN is disconnected. It also offers a Double VPN or its own anti-threat device.

There is no way of putting your data in danger or seeing your employer spy on your activity at work. And remember, this is currently available to you (in advance of Black Friday) thanks to a 63% discount and 3 free months on the 2-year subscription (€80.73 for 27 months) . Take advantage of it, especially now that you know in which cases the VPN will be useful to you, and you will have 30 days to change your mind.
