IF you want to protect your data while using unknown WiFi on your smartphone you should use virtual private network (VPN).
Luckily, this is easy to do on an iPhone, and you can safely browse the web after taking a few steps.
What is VPN?
VPN stands for ‘virtual private network’. It is software that, when activated, changes the “address” of your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Software that uses VPN technology adds an extra layer of security to your device.
VPNs make it harder for snoopers to track your online activity, helping to protect data and personal information.
And due to growing interest around protecting personal data – and keeping online activity from prying eyes – VPNs are more popular than ever.
They can help secure your browsing on public WiFi (in a coffee shop, shopping mall, or on public transport) and abroad – although they are banned in some countries.
How to use VPN on iPhone
You will need to go to the App Store and download the VPN app of your choice.
You will need to pay for most of the good stuff.
The best VPNs include CyberGhost and KeepSolid VPN.
Make sure you do a lot of research first.
Search for the app you want in the App Store and click “Get”.
Install it, open the app and create an account with your email address.
Once you have your VPN plan selected and everything set up, you should click on the app every time you want to use your VPN for hosting.
Turn on the VPN before you browse and turn it off afterwards.
