VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) are essential tools for secure and private internet browsing in the modern digital age. VPNs act as secure tunnels, encrypting our data to shield it from hackers, and allowing us to access the unrestricted internet while bypassing geographical barriers. They’re particularly crucial when we engage in sensitive transactions or connect to public Wi-Fi networks, safeguarding our information from potential threats. This webinar will be a deep dive into understanding how VPNs work, why they are important, and how they can be a game-changer in our online life.
