    Per tip #2, I would also add that you should first read the privacy policy of the VPN service when choosing what to subscribe for – there are VPN solutions that keep no logs of your online activity. Also, VPNs tend to slow down the connection speed. So, if you’re thinking about live streaming or uploading photos on social media, you should definitely get a fast bonding VPN (like Speedify, for example), to be able to combine multiple connections and get the bandwidth needed. Very good checklist!

    A VPN is an absolute must Michela, because I want to access US based Netflix shows overseas 😉 But in addition, using a VPN helps you access financial sites and similar sensitive sites without throwing up red flags too. Scrambling your data to confuse/befuddle hackers is another awesome features of these nifty thingees. Fabulous post.
