VPN (Virtual Portal Networks) Service- How to Protect Your HR Data Security
The Internet is such a useful tool. Want to learn how to make homemade bread? Find thousands of recipes online. Looking for an old pal from grade school? Chances are you can find him online. Want to earn a degree without traveling back and forth to a campus? Yep, you can do that, too. In fact, you can find virtually everything online. Information, banking, education, enjoyment, movies, and more right at your fingertips. If only that was all there was to it.
Before the Internet existed, there was no electronic HR data to be hacked, no web cams or phone cams that could be turned on remotely, no easy access to your personal information. If someone wanted to steal your identity or get involved in your private life, it actually took effort. It was definitely not easy. No longer, though. With the presence of the Internet, privacy is merely an illusion. Now, anyone with some skill can invade your privacy and destroy your life- should they choose.
It is not so much that I care that a hacker or the government can see that I am looking at someone’s grandma’s homemade biscuit recipe- it simply bothers me that they can see what I am doing. I do not care that people know I bank online, but I do care that they can get into my accounts. Knowing an ex can pay someone to break into my virtual life makes me feel exposed and vulnerable. The fact that people can, in a way, stalk me online and know what I have searched and what bills I have paid is just creepy. There has to be a way to protect ourselves.
Fortunately, there is. They are called VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, and they are like a brick wall standing tall and strong around your electronic data. Admittedly, there is no way to 100% safeguard yourself or your privacy online, but you can make it much more difficult. If hackers look long enough, they might find a way to climb over the wall or go around it. In all likelihood, though, once they see the wall, they will back off and look for someone who does not have protection. It is usually human nature to go down the path of least resistance.
And, on that note, you can follow that simple path, too. The Surfshark VPN extension is simple to download, and you can connect it to all of your devices. Why should you choose Surfshark over all the other available VPNs? I am glad you asked. Surfshark is dedicated to security, which is the whole point of a VPN, and it is incredibly budget-friendly.
With the Surfshark VPN extension, you can finally surf the web without ads, trackers, malware and phishing. You do not have to worry about Surfshark monitoring or tracking you- the company has a strict policy against logging your activity. The included Camouflage Mode prevents even your Internet provider from detecting your VPN, so they cannot invade your privacy either. You also get 24/7 expert support, so for those of us still browsing when we should be sleeping, we can still get help if we need it.
I think one of the most amazing things, though, is that Surfshark really has your back. If you are surfing the web and your VPN connection suddenly drops, so does your activity. This means that your HR data and sensitive information are not exposed due to connection issues. Something that really sets it apart from its competitors is that you can connect it across an unlimited amount of devices while others limit this. This means your whole family can be protected while online.
As a bonus, Surfshark has servers all over the place. There are more than 1000 servers in 60 countries on 6 continents. You should be covered pretty much anywhere you choose to go. And if all of this is not enough to get you to hit the download button, maybe the information will:
Surfshark hired Cure53, an independent web security testing company, to perform an audit on the Surfshark Chrome and Firefox extensions. After vicious testing, Cure53 found their reliability toe be “extremely rare for VPN browser extensions”. The testers did not find any exposure to any issues in the privacy or general security areas. That is extremely impressive, as most VPNs seem to have some sort of security issue or another..
One might expect such security to be expensive, so it is surprising to see that Surfshark costs so little. When you pay for multiple months, the price drops even lower. If you consider the fact that you can connect it across so many devices, the price seems even better. And, even better, they offer a 30-day money back guarantee, so you get plenty of time to test it yourself. Download the Surshark VPN Extension today to start protecting your HR data security.
