For remote workers like Howchooers, a VPN is an indispensable tool for making sure our internet data remains secure. When you use a VPN, what's known as a VPN tunnel is created and acts as a kind of encrypted shield, rerouting the encrypted data through one of the VPN servers. So, for example, if you use NordVPN when browsing the internet, it's nearly impossible for a hacker or anyone to see your internet activity and data. Even your ISP (internet service provider) will not be able to track your downloads or sell your browsing data. Your IP address will become masked and with a service like NordVPN, you'll be given a dedicated IP address so you don't get bogged down by Captcha authentication.
