How to Keep Your Internet Browsing Private at Work in 2018

So you want to keep your internet browsing private at work in 2018? Perhaps you had a bad experience with your activities on the internet being monitored last year with your past or current employe and were given a warning. Well, we believe in privacy wherever you are. Whether in somebody's home, the airport, or at work.

These are some of the main problems people have when it comes to internet browsing at work:

Some Websites Don't Work

You are working late at night. Your international country is playing a match. Or maybe, maybe it’s your team. Of course, you want to know what’s going on. So you go to a website where you can watch the match or check the score, but it doesn't work. Your employer can easily block access to websites that you want to access.

You Employee Sees What You Are Doing

We all forget how to do things from once in a while. Without a doubt, you don’t want your employee seeing that you are searching for how to do a straightforward. It might make them question why you are working there, especially if you don’t have the nicest boss.

You Don't Feel Confident in Work Knowing You Might Be Being Monitored

Imagine somebody staring at you while you work. That’s what it feels like. You can’t fully be yourself, and because of that, you don’t perform your best.

So How Do You Keep Your Internet Browsing Private at Work in 2018?

When it comes to unblocking websites blocked by your employer, you need to change your IP address temporarily. This will allow you to bypass any content filters placed by your employer.

When it comes to keeping your internet browsing private at work by preventing your employer from seeing what you are up to, you need to use encryption.

How do you do all of these? With a VPN.

When you connect to a VPN, your IP automatically changes. And the great thing about PrivateVPN is that that it comes with 56 different server locations. What does that mean? It means that if you are in Poland and want to use American Netflix if you connect to an American server, you will be able to do so. Wherever a server is will be your location if you connect to it.

But you also want to keep your internet browsing private at work, right? When you use a VPN, you are also encrypted meaning that if you are searching for something when connected to it, that information will just be a bunch of nonsense to somebody trying to access it compared to if you didn’t use a VPN.

If you are using an office computer or are connected to a network of your employer, your activities can be monitored. Your activities can also be watched in public places and even Starbucks actually. Any network that isn’t yours puts your privacy in danger. Actually, all networks put you in danger as the government and your internet provider can monitor your activities regardless of what network you are connected to.

PrivateVPN uses a military-grade AES 256-bit encryption code with 2048-bit DH key. You probably don’t know what that means but to put into the plainest English, the company you are working for won’t be able to afford to crack that kind of encryption. Perhaps that’s why the U.S. government uses that kind of security.
