Namaskar welcome to my channel BUDGET TRAVEL
GURU. This is the first video on traveling tools
and Essentials. In this video, I am going to discuss how safe is to use free Wi-Fi provided
by the coffee shop, airports or hotels. Of course, we use free Wi-Fi while traveling
but are they safe? The answer is NO. Then what is the solution?
For that, I am going to tell you all about the threats of using free wifi and will also
tell you the technique to overcome it. So let's dive in.
Nowadays public Wi-Fi is available just about everywhere, from the local coffee shop to
the hotels and airports we visit while traveling. Wi-Fi has made our lives a little easier,
but it also poses security risks to the personal information available on our laptops and smartphones.
Then the question comes should we use public wifi or not?
The 2 most important don’ts you should follow if you plan to use public Wi-Fi are
1. Don't access personal bank accounts, or sensitive personal data, on unsecured public
2. Don't shop online when using public Wi-Fi.
But in some unavoidable situations, we have to use public wifi while traveling. Then the
question comes how to use a public network and at at the same time be fully secured?
Here comes the use of VPN. Firstly I will tell you what VPN is.
A VPN, or VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK, is a secure tunnel between two or more devices. VPNs are
used to protect private web traffic from snooping, interference, and censorship. Once you connect
through a VPN, all your traffic becomes encrypted and your IP (Internet Protocol) address gets
replaced with the address of the VPN server. Basically, nobody will manage to track your
online traffic. As a result, your personal information and
online activities remain private and secure. You can enjoy many benefits by using VPN
Hide your IP address and location 2. Encrypt your communications: that means
you can browse freely from public Wi-Fi hotspots with the comfort of knowing that you can’t
be tracked or monitored. 3. Watch your favorite content: It means VPN
provides unblocked, unrestricted access to the sites and services you use. 4. View blocked websites from anywhere: With
VPN you can easily unblock sites and services like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, YouTube etc.
VPN helps you to keep on accessing the sites you love.
5. Avoid censorship and surveillance: When you are connected to VPN, your ISP only sees
encrypted traffic passing to the VPN servers, but it cannot decipher the data or know the
websites you have visited. VPN encryption protects not only your web browser but also
your emails, Skype conversations, online banking, and everything else you do or see on the internet—whether
you’re home, at the office, in a cafe, or traveling the world.
Stay safe from cybercriminals and thieves: Once you’re connected to VPN, all your data
is encrypted and indecipherable, so you won’t have to worry about passwords and other sensitive
information being intercepted. 7. Prevent third parties from tracking you
By hiding your IP address and location, VPN makes it harder for third-party websites like
hotel booking and air ticket booking services to charge different prices or display targeted
advertising based on location.
So I think you have clearly learned what VPN
is and what its benefits are. Now comes should we use free VPN or paid VPN
services. Let me tell you the disadvantages of FREE
VPN. 1. You are tracked consistently
Free VPNs are famous for tracking everything you do online like what websites you visit,
how much time you spend once there, which location you’re accessing the Internet from,
2. Your Data is sold to Third-Parties
Your online activity isn’t just collected by free VPNs but also sold to third-parties
that want your information so they can bombard you with targeted advertising.
3. You are Served Ads That Could Be Malicious 4. You’re Offered Limited Locations, Protocols,
Bandwidth and Features 5. You are Vulnerable to IP Address Leaks
When it comes to free VPNs, the tunnel might not be as secure or not exist at all. Your
personal data and IP address are left exposed, meaning that it could be tracked or monitored
by anyone. Now let us know the advantages of paid VPN
1. It provides Better Security When you use a paid VPN, you’ll always get
the foolproof security of your personal data. 2. Faster Speeds
A Paid VPN can usually handle thousands of connections simultaneously without slowing
down. That’s because they have strategically placed VPN servers around the world to help
you get around any digital hurdles at high-speeds.
3. 24/7 Customer Support
The paid VPN users get round-the-clock support. 4. No Bandwidth Caps
Most free VPNs throttle connection speeds so they can save on bandwidth. With paid options,
however, you get unlimited bandwidth on all VPN servers, meaning you can go about your
online activities without worrying about any quotas.
