A VPN will have your back.
Are you new to travel blogging?
Want to know all the needed tools before you travel, work abroad, and blog?
Maybe you’re a seasoned side hustler that is meeting with a dream client abroad for the first time.
Or an Influencer that wants to vlog about your sponsored travel vacation.
While you may have never given online privacy and security a second thought, now that you're going to work abroad, a VPN is for more than just protecting yourself. In fact, using a VPN will proactively help you with internet flexibility, reliability, and speed too.
The last thing you want is your video call to drop while conferencing new potential collaborators. How about sitting down to write at the towns local cafe only to get your laptop zapped over local open-wifi?
“Wait, where is the nearest computer shop?”
“Oh the closest computer guy is two towns over?”
Not the best way to play out your digital nomad dream lifestyle.
For every and any reason you are traveling abroad, using a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is a must.
What is a VPN?
Here is a non-technical, easy to understand explanation of VPN, courtesy of WhatIsMyIPAddress.
A VPN is a service that you sign up for online for a small monthly charge
- Once you have an account, your VPN service should be "on" when you're online
- A VPN, in action, takes your Internet connection and makes it more secure, helps you stay anonymous and helps you get around blocks and access censored sites.
- The key to a VPN is that it lends you a temporary IP address and hides your true IP address from every website or email you connect with
It's Virtual...because it's as if you have a private connection directly to any website or another computer you connect to.
It's Private...because all your website visits and online activity is between you and the websites you visit.
It's a Network...because you're using a special network of VPN servers that covers the entire globe.
VPN’s are a must at home and abroad. In different countries where you are unsure about wifi, VPN’s will help you roll with the punches. Give your mobile Content Lifestyle a solid foundation.
