I just purchased Norton 360 and it includes a VPN for each device. When I connect the VPN at home on my Spectrum Internet Provider, it frequently “disconnects.” I called Norton support and they told me that as long as I’m using my home internet connection, I DO NOT need a VPN as my home connection is always secure…. this sounds “fishy” to me…. any other thoughts? Thanks!
That is completely up to you, yes you will be safer and not be tracked as much. However the trade off is generally slower speeds. So if you are not worried about speed, then yes I would use the VPN at home.
Thanks, John….. that is what I needed to know. Also, as a followup, my Norton VPN has been disconnecting at least every 2 hours on my Spectrum ISP, so I’m notifying them today of this and hopefully can get it resolved. Blessings…..
Oh, one more thing…. When I’m away from home, I NEVER use a public WiFi connection, I always use my AT&T phone’s hotspot function (it is set up securely). Do I still need to have my VPN active when I’m on my phone’s hotspot? Thanks!
