Have you heard about VPN connections? Have you heard about the need of securing yourself online? But, do you really need a VPN connection? This might help you!
When you walk into a grocery store you might have a list of 5 products that you need to buy. As we get to the place for paying for our goods we should however not be surprised if we have ended up buying at least 10 products. How come? We walk through the store and suddenly we understand that it would be very useful to have some extra hot chocolate at home, some fries in the fridge and of course some carrots. These were not on the original list, but as we walk around inspiration hits us.
