Before learning about F-Secure Freedome, we will learn about VPN first, because VPN is the foundation of this product.
VPN stands for English phrase Virtual Private Network, translated into Vietnamese means private virtual network. VPN will act as an intermediary between our computer and the Internet.
More specifically, when browsing the web, the VPN will have the task of encrypting data, keeping us safe from constant threats on the Internet. You can learn more about VPNs in this paragraph Hey, Admin has explained it very well in that post already.
#first. Benefits that VPN brings
VPN brings us a lot of benefits, and below are 3 typical benefits:
- All incoming and outgoing data is encrypted
- Make it difficult for Hackers when they want to track, infiltrate and attack our computers.
- Safer to use public WiFi
- Increase network speed when undersea fiber optic cable breaks
Most VPN software has a very user-friendly interface and is very easy to use, just a few clicks and you can use it right away. Moreover, now there are many software that also support Vietnamese interface.
#2. Some popular VPNs
In order to partially limit the risks that may occur on the Internet, especially the privacy of users, research has been carried out, as well as many different VPN software released.
Here are 4 typical VNPs:
- Hostpot Sheild
- CyberGhost VPN

After researching and considering, I decided to choose F-Secure Freedome. The reason is by this software:
- Use 256 encryption (this encryption method is very secure, even current supercomputers are difficult to decrypt)

- Good price.
