Why You Need a Chrome VPN Extension

Virtual Private Networks are the armor that smart people employ to make sure that nothing gets stolen or compromised on their devices. Chances are that you are one of the people who have heard about this kind of thing but you do not use one.

With a browser as cool as Chrome, getting a VPN extension is a bonus you will want. Protection is just but, one of the reason why this is crucial.

The problem with public networks is that they are so…public. You need something to shield you from the cesspool of hackers, government censorship, Wi-Fi Spoofing attacks, Firesheep and Honeypot attacks among others when on a Public Network.

Do you want to forget the hassle of being constrained under conditions like these?

Get yourself a Chrome VPN extension.

Here is Why You Need a Chrome VPN Extension

They are designed to secure you as you access a private network which allows you to share data in a remote way through the public networks. Firewalls protect your data on your computer, a Chrome VPN will protect your data online.

VPNs work the same as WANs (Wide Area Networks). But, their front end has the invulnerability and functionality of a network that is private.

This is the reason why people who have things to protect use VPNs for their Chrome browsers. Because they are a P2P connection, there is chance that someone skilled can manage to get some of your data.

But, the VPNs encryption on this data is so good, they won’t be able to access a thing.

How Do You Pick One, There Are So Many?

Every single one of these VPN providers are fighting to see who will make the best and most secure Virtual Private Network.

This will of course make it hard for a non-tech freak like yourself to pick one.

Here is a something to clear the air up on that issue.

  1. Protocol– Searching for a VPN, you will see things like SSL/TLS, PPTP, IPSec, L2TP and it is confusing. SSL is what you need as an individual and if you want some corporate protection, IPsec works well.
  2. Server Location- When you want to use VPN to access something that is not in your country, make sure that whatever country you want to get data from has a server from the VPN you want to use or multiple locations.
  3. Logging Policies- VPNs protect you from the rest of the world but they can access your data. You need to know that they will not do that and this means you need to take a look at their logging policies first.
  4. Anti-Malware and Anti-Spyware capabilities- This is not very crucial but it is very important to have something watching to make sure that you do not download something dangerous. Most of these features come from a premium plan so, plan accordingly if you need them.
  5. Mobile Access– If you are going to invest in a VPN, you might as well get one that protect your phone data too.
  6. Payments– Always read the privacy policy and such when you want to use one of these to see what you will pay.

That is how you will be able to get something that works.

Do You Live In Tehran or China Maybe?

On the issue of totalitarian regimes, there is everything to be had when you have a Chrome VPN extension. We call this, physical location spoofing. What you do is activate the VPN and then you can allow it to replace the IP address on your device with the VPN provider’s address.

That way, anyone looking will think you are somewhere nice, like New York, where they don’t place restrictions on what you can see on say, YouTube. Government filters won’t figure this out.

Enjoy your freedom with a cool Chrome VPN extension.
