Mac Format - - CONTENTS - Writ­ten by Nick Peers

Does your in­ter­net ac­tiv­ity some­times need to take place over a cafe or ho­tel’s Wi-Fi? What about ac­cess­ing BBC iPlayer or fin­ish­ing off your lat­est Net­flix ob­ses­sion when you’re on hol­i­day abroad?

Whether for in­creased as­sur­ance of pri­vacy, the abil­ity to ac­cess UKspe­cific video con­tent, or you want ac­cess to com­put­ers and stor­age de­vices back home or in your of­fice, a vir­tual pri­vate net­work is the so­lu­tion.

Here we talk about the pros and cons of the tech, dis­pel some myths about it too, and ex­plain how to make sure you’re get­ting a good deal that suits your needs.
