It is the second day of the 22nd Olympic Winter Games, and the coastal city of Sochi is crowded with tens of thousands of sports enthusiasts. Many others only wish they could be there, and are looking for ways to watch the TV coverage. A streaming VPN will be very useful in both cases, providing encryption security and private access. A recent NBC report has a lot of people scared, but there is no need to worry if you have a quality streaming VPN and follow the basic safe surfing rules.
Streaming VPN for Online Security
There have not been many exciting events yet. But already many people are wondering whether or not it is safe to share photos and stories online. Russia has always ranked high on the list of countries where hackers operate. And though you won’t get immediately hacked by having your phone on in Russia, you still need a streaming VPN. With a streaming VPN you can share Olympic moments without worrying about putting your data in danger.
Russian hackers work very fast. In a matter of minutes, your laptop, tablet or mobile phone can be hacked. Malware is the poison of choice for many Russian hackers. This is because it is very easy to inject devices with it when they connect to WiFi hotspots. And for tourists, public WiFi is almost the only way they can get online. Sometimes the problem is that visitors do not realize that public WiFi is not limited to airports, restaurants and shopping malls. Even when they are safely tucked in to their hotel rooms, they can be in danger. Those types of networks use passwords, but are far from secure. The encryption used to protect them is minimal and very easy to crack.
Moreover, people traveling to Russia for the games will be using mostly smartphones and tablets. Android devices are particularly vulnerable if security locks are not in place. The phone can automatically download and install APK files, for example. Androids do not distinguish between valid app sources. With a streaming VPN, you get high level encryption that protects your data and traffic. So no matter where you connect from to share photos and videos or post your updates and comments, you will be safe.
Streaming VPN for Streaming Access
For the millions of Olympic enthusiasts who are not able to travel to Sochi, a streaming VPN can very useful. Many people do not have access to the live streaming of the events. The broadcasts are not available in every country, so they will need the streaming VPN. A streaming VPN can connect a user to the feed no matter where they are physically located. A quality streaming VPN will have several VPN servers to choose from. This way people can connect to the country server where they get the best speeds and widest coverage. And the best part is, you can use this streaming VPN for the entire Olympic season. Get safe and free access to all the best streamed and shared Olympic content throughout the year, wherever you are.
