We’ve all heard the traditional pointers for safe online banking: a secure password, two-factor authentication, checking your bank account regularly. But what is many times overlooked is the importance of using a VPN while interacting with your bank accounts online. If you find yourself checking your bank account while on-the-go (for example, at a coffee shop), unsecure Wi-Fi networks may put you at risk. These unsecured networks are often a gateway for hackers and snoops to gain access to your important information.
We’ve written about the dangers of unsecured Wi-Fi before, and these concerns continue to increase. While connected to a VPN such as VyprVPN, no one will be able to access your encrypted traffic. This means your personal information, including banking information, is protected so you can stay secure on all of your devices.
