Autumn is the time when big smartphone manufacturers bring out their latest flagships and many users are likely gearing up for an updated device. Screen protectors, cases and other headphones are often the first accessories we buy to protect our new smartphones from damage but what about when it comes to protecting the files and sensitive information stored on your device?
By using a VPN to connect to the internet, you can rest easy knowing that your new smartphone will be protected by an additional layer of security on any network you connect to.
