Secure Virgin Media Email connection

Your email box is a private box with all your mail inside. You don’t want anyone to read your emails with private information. While traveling inside or outside your country you will use public WiFi connections to open your email and even for browsing the internet. While you are connected to a public hotspot you are not using the internet with a secure connection. Everything you do (browsing, mailing) is visible for the owner of the public hotspot. You don’t want this! VPN is the solution to this problem. With VPN you setup a private connection to the internet. This will ensure you that everything you do is hidden. Read more on VPN here
