Unlocking the World of Secure Internet: Your Guide to Changing VPNs

The VPN is much like a key to a backdoor of the internet, so if you have a good one, you can have access to everything on the web securely and privately. However, you still need to change your VPN key from time to time because not all key fits into all locks. Even though every lock seems ok, eventually you might get one that you feel is better matched to your internet usage. But what are the essential steps for changing your VPN and what should you look for in your next VPN? Let’s dig in.

The First Step to VPN Freedom

Now, onward to the difficult part: really getting off the VPN. First things first, make sure you’ve uninstalled it and cancelled your recurring subscription. That way, your (soon-former) VPN company won’t charge you right before serving up your personal information and browsing data to the highest bidder. The method will be similar, no matter what type of phone (or other device) you’re using. Let’s say it’s an iPhone: Go to your iPhone settings, to your account’s ‘app store’, and then scroll down a smidget to select ‘view apple ID’. There, you can cancel the auto-renewal of your subscription. There’ll be a few different steps, depending on your operating system, but it broadly looks like this. Either way, you’ll have to go through and delete the app itself to get some space back on your device. And with that, a clean break! Google Images.

But if you prioritise your needs and preferences upfront, you’ll be able make the list much shorter. Free VPNs look good, especially if you are only going to use the service occasionally. But they come with limitations and possibly security issues as well.
