Secure your Chrome browser
For ultimate online security, using a VPN (virtual private network) encrypts the traffic between your Chrome browser and the website. That way, if anyone like your ISP (Internet Service Provider) tries to spy on what you're doing online, they'll have difficulty seeing anything.
Your online activities lead to your IP (Internet Protocol) address getting logged. It also leads back to you. Install a VPN Chrome extension to replace your real IP address with another IP from a VPN server.
A quality and paid VPN like Surfshark operates under a strict no-logs policy. It even maintains servers that would go blank if anyone tried to seize them. Plus, unlike free VPNs, a paid VPN allows you unlimited bandwidth for all your devices.
Connect to a VPN server and access the open internet
Your government might not like you reading foreign news sources. Your workplace or school would like you not to access YouTube on their Wi-Fi. However, a Chrome browser VPN extension can overcome those blocks.
When a school, dorm, workplace, or other similar internet supplier blocks your online activity, they use fairly simple methods. Using a Chrome VPN extension can bypass them - and many others.
Some countries prevent search engines from accessing regular websites like Facebook and Instagram. However, even through a Chrome VPN, a reliable VPN connection can get past these restrictions and access websites.
Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in any way that would potentially violate the Terms of Service of other service providers.
