Do I need a VPN while traveling?
Traveling often means being surrounded by (and connecting to) unfamiliar Wi-Fi networks. This vulnerability makes it especially important to have a smart security solution in place for all your devices. If you tend to spend a lot of time browsing or doing work from your device while you travel, make sure to download security applications (including a VPN) that protect your devices.
If you’re traveling to cities where pickpocketing is common (or if you’re merely forgetful), many of the security apps also offer anti-theft protection. This feature allows the user to back up, lock, and wipe the device remotely just in case your phone gets swiped.
