Can I Run A VPN With Hughesnet?
VPN’s are a great way to ensure your home internet signal is fully safe and secure. You can use a VPN on Hughesnet internet, but it can add a few complications you should know about! Because a VPN encrypts all the data being transferred, it can interfere with or slow down your internet signal at home. So if you need to do it – you can, but it just may have an impact on the internet speeds you were expecting!
Having a VPN running on your devices is a great idea when using public networks such as coffee shops, travel stations, or libraries, because they have almost no security protections. But when you’re home, as long as your home network is password-protected we recommend not using a VPN unless you absolutely need to!
What Is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)?
As more and more businesses and schools have moved to using digital tools, online security has become even more important. A VPN runs in the background of your device and encrypts all your data, making it harder for hackers to intercept it and see what you’re doing. It also gives you a different IP address that makes it seem like you are located in a different part of the country or world. This can be incredibly helpful in terms of security – and for helpful tasks such as watching region locked video content.
Which VPNs Work With Hughesnet?
There are hundreds of VPN options available for consumers to use, and just about all of them will work with Hughesnet internet, although it will slow down internet speeds. Some popular options include ExpressVPN, NordVPN, ProtonVPN, and CyberGhost, but there are tons more! Most VPNs are as simple as downloading the app, getting your payment method set, and connecting to the VPN. It’s a very easy process that can give you ease-of-mind.
Should I Use A VPN?
With more and more security concerns making their way into the digital world, VPNs are very helpful tools that can help keep your information private. If you are regularly taking your devices on-the-go and using them on public WiFi networks – a VPN is a great choice. When it comes to accessing the internet from your home, your internet signal is already much more secure than a public network and using a VPN is much less needed, especially when you take the impact on performance into consideration.
