Why people use vpn on iPhone and iPad? What are the benefits of using vpn?

VPN for iPad and iPhone

Nobody can deny the fact that iPhone and iPad from Apple have magically captured lots of fans all around the world. Despite controversies, Apple users continue to stay overnight in long lines just to be first to get the latest model. But it does not matter what Apple workers do to improve design, there is always a risk of security and safety. Taking into account that these devices were designed especially to be handy and can be used anywhere, you just have to care about your security and protect yourself using a reliable VPN.

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is simply a secure tunnel inside your usual Internet connection. There are also different kinds of VPNs, as well as various set ups and configurations. If you are not a tech-savvy person, the structure of a VPN might be boring and complicated for you. However, it is very important that you understand how VPN works so you know how it can help you be more secured while you are enjoying your iPad or iPhone.

Apple developed own security features against robbers and identity theft. Apple CEO Tim Cook also has promised to improve the current iOs version on the way the company handles users’ private data when they login to iTunes and iCloud. But while the idea is a good sign of showing concerns to their customers, it is still not enough. After all, you didn’t buy an Apple device just because you are a die-hard Apple fan. You bought it because you also want to surf the web and visit some websites.
And as mentioned earlier, iPhones and iPads can be used anywhere especially in a non-secured Wi-Fi zone. These days, they are almost everywhere such as in cafes and restaurants, hotels, airports, train stations, and others. Apparently, this is when a VPN can protect you, the way Apple is not capable of doing. With a VPN, you can browse websites anonymously from your mobile device. You will be get a new IP address, and therefore masks your real IP address and your geo-location. And yes, it is legal to use VPN.

But this is not the only benefit of using VPN for iPhone and iPad. VPN traffic is also well encrypted, which means your online activities are hidden too. This means no one or system can easily intercept you data, not even hackers. This is the greatest advantage of VPN over other ways of surfing the Internet anonymously. This is also why many people use VPN to unblock restricted sites when they are in a country that imposes strict Internet censorship, like China and in the Gulf region.

However, not all VPN providers are the same. There are the free VPNs and the premium ones. But paid VPN are far much better than the free ones in all aspects except of course that you need to pay. Note also that a free VPN needs money to survive, and they get this from advertisements that will appear right in front of your face as you activate their service. Come to think of it, don’t you think it’s weird that you can afford to buy expensive devices and yet you are hesitant to spend a few bucks for your online security?
