What is a VPN and Why Should You Use One?

Think of a VPN (or Virtual Private Network) as a hack-proof, encrypted tunnel for your online traffic to pass through. Nobody can see through this tunnel and get their hands on your Internet data. 

When you browse the Internet without a VPN tunnel, you will be connected to your Internet service provider (ISP) first. From there, you will be able to visit any websites you wish by typing the URL in the address bar in your Internet browser.

This means everything you do online will pass through your Internet service provider’s servers, allowing them to see and record your online activities and your browsing history.

However, when you use a VPN tunnel, your Internet traffic will be redirected through a special remote server that hides your IP address and encrypts your data. This encrypted data will be illegible for anyone who comes across it – it will appear like a random indecipherable code.

Do You Need Both FixMeStick and a VPN?

The FixMeStick and a VPN are two completely different products. They do not perform the same function, but both work together to keep you safe, secure and private.

The FixMeStick virus removal device is designed to remove malware that has attacked your computer by getting past your antivirus software. A VPN is not a virus removal device and will not remove viruses from your computer. Instead, it simply provides you with your very own private Internet connection. You should still use an up-to-date antivirus and run monthly FixMeStick scans.

Do you fit any of the descriptions listed below?

  • You don’t want your online activities to be monitored
  • You use public WiFi or hotspots
  • You make online purchases – a VPN keeps your credit card information private
  • You want to enjoy more online videos from different locations

If you said ‘yes’ to any of the criteria above consider getting a virtual private network! If you purchase NordVPN today you can save 70% with our exclusive discount, for use on 6 devices for 3 years, at only $3.49 USD/month! Click HERE to redeem this special offer!

    I have tried several VPN`s and NordVPN is hands down the best VPN…..I have been using NordVPN for about 4 years now and feel totally protected always…

    • Keegan Anfield -

      That’s awesome! Glad you like NordVPN as much as we do.

  2. Deanna McBean -

    How do I go about getting a VPN and how much dose it cost.

    • Linda -

      Hi Bobby, the StartMeStick is different from a VPN but both are used to add a layer of privacy to your computer. The StartMeStick adds an additional layer of endpoint security, internet privacy, or anonymity. But using StartMeStick alone does not change your IP address (location), you’ll need a VPN to do that. If you have more questions, please leave us a note at this link here and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

  3. James -

    Does NordVPN track users web traffic and surfing habits? Does it collect data – websites visited, links clicked, etc.?

    • Linda -

      Hi James, since NordVPN is our partner product (we don’t make the software ourselves, we simply sell it from our website), we cannot make any guarantees on what they will or will not do with your data. However, be assured that NordVPN does take your privacy seriously and you can view their complete privacy policy in the link here.

  4. Mike H. -

    Hi, I’m new to the VPN idea. And was wondering, I have a 10 mbs download 2.+ upload service. What kind of speed difference can I expect to see using your VPN service? will it be the same, or lower (on average)?

  5. Don -

    Who is Nord VPN? Would you identify them as to who and where they are with absolute certainty? Can I publish a blog over it, and get access to payments anonymously? These are a few of the many questions I have with regard to any VPN.

  6. Don -

    I already have NORDVPN. But ave no idea how to use it. Any help you can give?

  7. William M -

    Okay, I fully understand my activites on the internet. How about the other person’s activity on my computer, i.e. inbox emails received? Does it protect my files already established? Or, is NordVPN JUST for internet activities?

    • Linda -

      Hi William, NordVPN can only encrypt your internet activities/internet traffic. As long as you have a VPN working in the background of your computer, it does not matter who is using the computer. All internet traffic coming from that computer will go through the VPN network.

  8. Patricia Eyre -

    I am wondering if you have this coverage do you cancel the security coverage you have now? Why would this system not cover e-mails as when you have many they then get transferred to internet?

    • Linda -

      Hi Patricia, NordVPN is different from antivirus programs. A VPN protects your internet traffic by encrypting data that are passing through, such as your emails, whereas antivirus software protects your computer.

  9. Mark Abshire -

    Say I am away from my PC but need to access a file i have stored on my PC, can I access files using VPN, say using my smartphone?

    • Linda -

      Hi Mark, a VPN cannot give you a access to your computer’s files. It’s a tool that redirects your internet traffic through a secured and encrypted tunnel.

    • Linda -

      Hi there, you can definitely use NordVPN for your phone. There’s a mobile version available for iOS and Androids!

  10. Robert Bruce -

    I’ve noticed on many websites/blogs/various types of reading matter a common mistake: using an apostrophe in the wrong place, along with the word “it”. Please keep in mind that an apostrophe takes the place of a dropped letter.

    Example: “It’s (it is) cold outside.”

    A couple of examples from another newsletter:
    “and it’s (it is) easy to use Chrome”
    “if it’s (it is) a call”

    The word “its” means ownership of something, as in “the dog wagged its tail,” not “the dog wagged it’s tail.” (“wagged it is tail”?)

    From this newsletter, regarding NORD VPN:
    “… due to its (ownership) ease-of-use, it’s (it is) attractive pricing, and it’s (it is) top-notch security features.”

    See the difference?

    If you want to use “it’s,” make sure you mean to say “it is.”

    Please pay a bit more attention to your grammar, and your letters will be a good bit easier to read.

    Thank you for reading this, and thank you for a couple of very fine products!

    • Linda -

      Hi Robert, thank you so much for taking the time to read through and correct our blog. We really appreciate it and have since fixed these grammar mistakes you have pointed out. If you need anything else or see any other issues, feel free to leave us another comment!

  11. Carolyn C. -

    You state that the VPN can be used on up to 6 devices. Would my smart phone be included i n 1 of those 6 devices or do I have to purchase a mobile VPN? I use my phone going online, surfing the internet etc. just as much as I use other devices in my home.

    • Jonathan -

      Hy Carolyn,

      Yes, NordVPN can be used on your smartphone as well! If you’d like to run the VPN on your phone, you can download the app, enter your credentials, and you should be good to go!

  12. Laars A Lignell -

    Does it also protect your I phone, I also have a laptop that is not on line, but when I go to a coffee shop with wifi will it also protect it there as well? A friend of mine visited me and while I was getting a cup of coffee for us both he signed me up for a porn web site which I didn’t know about until the next day. will it stop the porn website from sending me messages?

    • Jonathan -

      Hi Laars,

      NordVPN is good for smartphones as well! Once you purchase your subscription and make an account, you can download the NordVPN app onto your smartphone. From there, you simply need to enter in your information, active the VPN, and you’re good to go!

      It’s difficult to say whether adding a VPN will stop the messages from coming in. If you’re receiving these messages to your email or phone, it’s likely that you’ve been added to a spam list, in which case a VPN will not likely help.

  13. david coutts -

    if I take the 3 year program but either before or at the end date I want to get off the program what do I have to do to proceed on without it. Also do you automatically charge a card unless one cancles in time.

    • Jonathan -

      Hi David,

      Good question! With the 3 year NordVPN subscription, you initially make the purchase for the full 3 years. The payment for all 3 years is made at the beginning, though we do allow for cancellations and refunds within the initial refund time period.

    Don’t listen to all the sales hype on NordVPN. Sure its ‘okay’ in the world of VPN’s and the price is fair. But what you don’t know and won’t see on any of these ‘fair’ reviews is the darkside.

    You will encounter what I am if you’re a new customer:

    1) Google – Requires a captcha on EVERY google search. Why? Because log-less VPN’s mean its a hacker, pedophile, spamists dream VPN, since none of their illegal activity is logged or reported. Annoying to have to fill out a 1-2min captcha? You betcha.

    Same goes for Youtube, Startpage, Bing and not to mention financial institutions that won’t allow the blacklisted (almost every NordVPN server in the US) server IP address into their networks. Means you have to shut down Nord VPN just to use your own bank site. Which defeats the purpose 99% of us use a VPN for.
