How To Set Up VPN

Using an ioloVPN is a fantastic way to enhance your privacy online. But how exactly do VPNs work? And how do you set them up? We break it down for you in this expert guide.

An ioloVPN is one of the most easy-to-use and competitively-priced VPNs on the market. There are a wide range of reasons to use a VPN, including data privacy, security when working remotely, and the ability to access content that is not available in your country, such as various streaming services. Don’t let the reputation of VPNs intimidate you. With a little know-how, you can choose and set up a VPN painlessly – and that’s exactly what an ioloVPN has to offer.

Why Choose ioloVPN?

From your couch to a coffee shop, tablet, or PC, ioloVPN has you covered with a worldwide network of VPN servers, spread across three dozen locations on six continents. And the best part? ioloVPN is affordable, easy to set up and use, and incredibly competitively priced. With our best deal being just $3.75 a month for two years, you receive 256-bit Bank-grade encryption, protection for up to five of your devices, fast and stable connections, a guarantee of no logs or data collection, as well as 24/7 live support. It really doesn’t get any better than that. ioloVPN is compatible with Windows, and Android, and soon will be available to iOS users, meaning that everyone can browse safely and securely online.

ioloVPN will automatically configure on your devices after you have purchased it, making setup quick and easy for anyone. It really couldn’t be simpler.

When Should You Use Your ioloVPN?

When you decide to use your ioloVPN will depend on what you want to use a VPN for. If you’re just trying to access content that is not available in your country, you’ll probably leave your VPN off until you want to access the content. If you’re concerned about privacy, you’ll probably want your VPN on as much as possible, possibly all the time. And if you’re mostly concerned about untrustworthy public Wi-Fi networks, maybe your VPN only comes out when you’re traveling.

On your home network, ioloVPN will protect your IP address and internet browsing activity by hiding your identity from your ISP; from the apps and sites you visit; and from the corporate bodies that your ISP is selling your data to. Your online activity won’t be fully obscured but your identity (via your IP address) will be. Using ioloVPN at home isn’t a foolproof measure for full anonymity, but it will provide a base level of data security, and will give you peace of mind when browsing online.

On the other hand, on public Wi-Fi networks, ioloVPN will protect you and your personal information from people with malicious intent, such as hackers and cyber criminals, encrypting your data and your identity. Whether connecting to Wi-Fi at a cafe, city network, or at an airport, ioloVPN is guaranteed to help keep your data safe, wherever you are. This VPN usage is more critical than at home or on a private network, as public Wi-Fi is less secure and can easily enable data theft and criminal activity, which can be detrimental to an individual’s life – ioloVPN guarantees to prevent this.

ioloVPN provides unrivaled levels of data security, obscuring your personal information and identity from ISPs, internet snoops, companies, cybercriminals, and government agencies alike. In a world where many activities are done online such as shopping or banking, ioloVPN promises to give you peace of mind, keeping you and your data secure and safe at all times.
