How to Access Social Networking Sites Safely

VPN & Security News No Comments »

Nowadays a lot of people can’t imagine their life without social networking sites. For many users it is the favorite way of communicating online with their friends and relatives. Social networking sites make it easier for people all over the world to stay connected. But in spite of many advantages, they enhance the opportunity for hackers to steal users’ private information.

It is recommended to tune in privacy settings to minimize the chance of data theft. However it will not protect your account if you are accessing it with public Wi-Fi. Many public places such as cafés and airports offer their customers free Wi-Fi connections that are very convenient to use, but that on the other hand can threaten your online security.

Protecting internet privacy is the main reason why a lot of users prefer to protect access to their accounts with the help of VPN. VPN service providers offer their users hotspot security  by encrypting the transmitted data, that’s why people do not need to worry about their sensitive information becoming available to third parties.

How to Use Wi-Fi Safely on Vacations?

VPN & Security News No Comments »

 

Nowadays, wireless networks are widely accessible. With summer vacations nearing, it is important to remember about safety when using Wi-Fi whilst traveling. Wi-Fi is quite convenient to use so you can stay connected everywhere, but it is not safe. Publicly available Internet is the least protected from hackers’ attacks and from personal data theft. The information transmitted over wireless networks is not encrypted, that’s why it can be easily accessed by third parties. The following tips can help you secure your Internet access

It is very important to keep your wireless connection turned off whilst you are not using it. Make sure that the options of automatic reconnection are switched off on your device. In some cases it is the ability to reconnect wireless networks without your help that can make your information visible for hackers. 

For top quality protection, consider using a VPN connection. It provides you with hotspot security by encrypting all the data transferred. It is wise to use VPN to access your company network, because VPN services create a secure tunnel between your device and the destination network. 

Make sure that you use HTTPS instead of HTTP when doing online banking or shopping transactions, or  when entering your logging details. HTTPS means that your connection is protected and the data you are typing in will be encrypted.

Useful Tips for Smart Phone Security

There's more to mobile security than the data you store. If your mobile device has Wi-Fi capability and you connect to unsecured Wi-Fi hotspots for Internet access without knowing it, there are more security concerns. The new article published by eSecurity Planet tells us all about it.

The first thing you should know about hotspot security is that most public Wi-Fi hotspots are not encrypted. This means that anyone within range can eavesdrop on what you send and receive. The same applies when using a laptop on a hotspot, or your computers at home on your own wireless router.

Eavesdropping on Wi-Fi is easy. All it takes is a curious individual with few free software tools and some spare time. And there is a lot of software out there that can capture in flight and display it. Some programs simply look out for and show login credentials to unsecured sites or services, like social networking sites and email accounts.

The first line of defense to combat Wi-Fi eavesdroppers is to use a virtual private network (VPN) on both your Wi-Fi and cell data connections. When connected to a VPN, all your Internet traffic travels through an encrypted tunnel, guarding it from local attackers. It protects your traffic and passwords not already encrypted. Moreover, VPNs can also give you secure remote access to files and network resources at work or at home, like remote desktop services.

Apple's iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android are two popular mobile platforms that include native VPN support. Most other platforms include some type of VPN functionality, but usually require you to have a special server in addition to a VPN server. For devices that support regular VPN connections, you can use a VPN from work, if they provide one, or setup your own VPN server at home using Windows or a third-party server.

VPN for Beginners, Power Users and Corporate Use

VPN & Security News No Comments »

Virtual private networks keep your information secure whilst surfing the Internet. They create a secure “tunnel” across the Internet between your local PC at home or in the office and a VPN service provider. As your Internet traffic is being encrypted, nobody can use your private information from emails, posts or online shopping. Nowadays it’s a hot topic because many easy-to-use programs can easily monitor what you are doing on the Internet.

There are some simple ways to get VPN. The easiest one is to check whether your company, school, organization, or department are using it. If they are, then you can just become a member of a corporative VPN, install the software and launch the VPN application any time before you surf the Web.

If there is no corporative VPN, you can have your personal VPN service. Numerous VPN providers offer their services starting from $15 per month. Remember to check the background of a company you are thinking of choosing. You can read online forum feedbacks, email or call to the company to be sure that real people work in it.

Providing security and privacy, VPNs offer other advantages as well. You can visit websites and use online services blocked for external use. 

Anonymous Web browsing is another benefit provided by some VPN providers. It allows you to surf the Internet without being tracked.

VPNs are a multi-target service. It is available both for individuals and corporate teams: whether you need a secure access to a WI-FI hotspot on the road, or to build a network of remote employees to develop your business securely through the Internet. PC World magazine published a review of different VPN services for beginners, power users and corporate users: http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/223044/get_started_with_a_vpn_for_beginners_power_users_and_it_pros.html

Mobile Internet Vulnerability

VPN & Security News No Comments »

Modern technology provides us with unprecedented levels of mobility. Omnipresent Internet access via portable computers and smart phones makes working outside the office as easy as never before. But we shouldn’t forget how vulnerable the ‘travelling’ data can become.

Last week, the Symantec Corporation and the Ponemon Institute issued their annual report in which they analyzed the risks of data breach in some of the biggest American companies. The conclusion is not comforting: the security risks have no signs of lowering and coping with them becomes more and more expensive.

Using Internet in public places can pose a serious threat to data security. Robert Hamilton, senior product marketing manager for Symantec, suggests avoiding free public Wi-Fi spots, saying that some of them can be set up by criminals. Always ask for an access key when using wireless connection in hotels, to ensure it is not “sponsored” by the hacker next door.

Many companies also insist that their employees use VPN when transferring important information. The encryption mechanisms used in such networks reduce the risk of data interception and make it very difficult to trace.

Americans Wise Up About Wi-Fi Security

VPN & Security News No Comments »

Public wireless networks are becoming widespread. You can find Wi-Fi spots in coffee shops, libraries, airports, hotels, universities and other public places. But access to the internet through a shared network can be not secure and even dangerous. The problem of losing personal information is so topical, that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission  has published some recommendations to protect your information against Wi-Fi snoops. The article, under the title “Wise Up about Wi-Fi: Tips for Using Public Wireless Networks” is published on www.onguardonline.gov.

Security experts say that using encryption you can protect your personal information online. They recommend using HTTPS protocol instead of HTTP. In addition, heed your browser's warnings about malicious sites. Browser add-ons, such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation's HTTPS Everywhere, can encrypt some (but not all) data transmitting between your PC and the site you are visiting.

Another important recommendation on the “Wise Up About Wi-Fi” page is using a virtual private network. It is useful for those who regularly access online accounts through Wi-Fi hotspots. The VPN will create a secure tunnel to protect all data sent over the connection, even on unsecured networks. You can obtain a personal VPN account from a VPN service provider. You can ask the company you are working for to provide secure remote access to their resources by VPN.
