This is an extension to our series on secure messaging with public key encryption. In that series, I guided you through using PGP privacy to encrypt and decrypt your email. In this episode, we’ll discuss securing your online activities with use of a secure Virtual Private Network or VPN.
First, I’ll describe what a VPN is and the basics of how it works. Then, I’ll walk you through the process of signing up and using one for browsing from your computer as well as your smartphone.
