How to set up a VPN

Internet security is a hot topic at the moment, and for very good reason too.

Since ex-CIA employee Edward Snowden released NSA documents revealing a global online surveillance strategy in June last year, there have been more and more revelations from all over the world regarding just how much internet users are tracked online.

In the wake of these revelations, the public interest in services like VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, has risen, as VPN services and others like them can allow the user to browse the web anonymously, without being traced–and no-log VPNs in particular offer additional anonymity, as these services don’t even hold your information for their own use.

But how easy it is to use a VPN service?

Well, it depends.

Some VPN services require the type of under-the-hood tech knowledge that is beyond most of us, and that we might not have time for in the midst of work, kids, beers at the end of the week and the Saturday shopping run. Others are easy to set up but difficult to manage, and make accessing the web more difficult than it truly should be.

Others, however, are incredibly simple, allowing you to quickly download the app or the program, set up within minutes, and flow beautifully in the background of your web use without even making themselves known. The SurfEasy VPN service is one of the latter.
