There are many reasons to keep your internet activity encrypted. The safety of your family is one of the most important.
While mobile internet connections are usually secure, open wireless networks are less protected. Meanwhile, home Wi-Fi can be hacked thanks to ISPs shipping routers with the same password, insecure backdoors, and many other vulnerabilities that you wouldn’t expect.
A key weapon in your battle to keep your kids safe online is a VPN. With an increasing number of VPN services now offering multiple concurrent connections, you could be keeping an entire family worth of tablet, phone, and console users safe online for just a few pence a day.
For example, Windscribe offers users unlimited simultaneous connections, although it won’t handle Netflix connections. Meanwhile, ProtonVPN supports simultaneous VPN connections on up to 10 devices, enough for most families.
Whichever VPN provider you choose to encrypt your children’s online activity, be sure you’re confident about its logging policy.
