Use a VPN to Access Home Resources While You Travel
Many online services register your current location. If you access these services from outside the country, they may flag you as a hacker or criminal, and deny the services. A VPN (virtual private network) can be handy tool when you travel abroad and want to connect to your services securely.
Here are some examples:
Online shopping – browsers often change based on location. If while you travel you want to ship something to your home from your home country, log onto your VPN.
Streaming video – you may not be able to use streaming services when out of the country unless you have paid for an overseas account. Just use your VPN to log into your local IP at home and start watching effortlessly.
Access social media – which some countries block. Your personal VPN will allow you access to all your favorites quickly and easily.
Be careful though! Some videos or social media are illegal in certain countries. Make sure you understand the local regulations.
