Was just reading some random stuff on the web, and I came across an interesting read on VPNs(Virtual Private Networks). It has now come to my attention that using the web from my home, or anywhere else for that matter, it isn't necessarily 'secure'. From what I understand, using a VPN is a more secure way to surf the web.(login to email,facebook, any site that requires a login). I was just wondering if someone could help further explain: how, when, and why to use one. I have done some research on my own, but I keep finding generic definitions of a VPN, and can't really find answers to what i'm looking for. If anybody is knowledgeable in VPNs, I would really appreciate some help on the subject.
