How To…Use a VPN To Browse the Web More Securely (11/18/20)
If you find yourself connecting to public Wi-Fi networks (like at Starbucks or the library), you’re opening yourself up to a significant security risk. VPNs, or virtual private networks, are the safest alternative options that let you connect to a private, secure network from the comfort of your favorite coffee shop. In this seminar, we’ll talk about what makes public Wi-Fi risky, as well as how you can use a VPN (including free options) to browse instead. We’ll also discuss how home networks can be risky in certain situations as well, and when it’s appropriate to use a VPN while working from home if you aren’t already.
