Travel Bloggers: Hook Up VPN
This post is solely for the travel bloggers.
Who roam around the world and visiting the countries where the internet is bumpy.
And even restricted at large due to political and geographical limitations.
So travel bloggers, please hook up VPN.
What the hell is VPN?
Most people do have an idea about VPN as to what is it.
It is like hiding your direct online identity where sites do think you’re online from, let’s say, USA but you’re actually from one of the Asian countries.
So, that’s what make VPN happen.
Why do the travel bloggers need to hook up VPN?
Especially the bloggers traveling in Asia, South America, Africa and some specific countries where the internet is too stressed and/or limited, VPN does wonder in such cases.
It might not be a good idea to directly open up the secured sites such as PayPal, your online bank accounts, your password manager and much more secured and sensitive websites on the local internet line.
With VPN, it is somewhat secured to perform the secured tasks.
The type of VPN services
Just two types which are too common.
1- PPTP VPN Connection
PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) mostly works without installing any third-party software.
The built-in system to connect to VPN may suffice.
Yes, most VPN providers do provide their software to use on desktops and mobiles and it makes the job easy to connect because you’re not going to manually tune in the account by going through the folds of settings.
But as I said, the PPTP connection can settle up just by following the built-in settings of the devices.
Price range: Cheap
2- OpenVPN Connection
OpenVPN is the more secure protocol and it is hooked up with the software to install on the devices (Windows, Macs, Androids, Linux, etc.)
Price range: Little pricey
