VPN (Virtual Private Network) has been a game changer in the tech industry since it was invented by Microsoft slightly over two decades ago. Today, this technology helps online users to surf different websites online in anonymity, unblock websites in countries that have enforced Internet censorship, and to secure and encrypt confidential data against cybercriminals.
But VPN has had its fair share of downsides as well, the most prevalent of them all being that it reduces a user’s connection speed, sometimes resulting in underwhelming web performance for high-traffic sites.
According to Sophos, 70% of internet users use the same password for almost all the web services they use. It therefore comes as no surprise that ‘phishing’ is such a popular and effective tool for cyber-criminals against their victims, allowing them to assume control of all accounts – whether it be social media or online banking.
