Do You Need a Virtual Private Network?

VPNs have become very popular this year, as officials question privacy regulations.

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have been in the news a lot since April, when the Federal Communications Commission’s strict privacy regulations of 2016 were repealed.

The FCC is now barred from introducing similar regulations to protect consumers, and Internet providers have the green light to track and sell consumer browsing data to advertisers without permission.
