Is it possible to go through daily life without companies collecting your data? 3 VPN features that help you do that

Need for privacy. 3 VPN features that help you escape data collection

In today's fast-paced digital world, invasion of privacy is an increasing concern. With each passing day, people face an ever-greater risk of having their personal information collected and analyzed by companies and governments.

According to a Pew Research survey, a majority of Americans believe their online and offline activities are being tracked and monitored by companies and the government with some regularity. 62% of respondents said it's impossible to go through daily life without companies collecting their data, and 63% said the same about the government.

72% of Americans report feeling that all, almost all, or most, of what they do online or with their cellphone is being tracked by advertisers, technology firms and other companies. Another 19% think some of what they do is being tracked. Close to half (47%) of adults believe at least most of their online activities are being tracked by the government.

These statistics point towards a growing sense of helplessness, as individuals struggle to keep their personal data confidential. For example, 81% of respondents said they feel they have little to no control over the data companies collect, and 79% are concerned about how this data is used.

How can you enhance your online privacy?

Bitdefender VPN can provide that much-coveted sense of security and privacy by encrypting your internet connection and masking your IP address. It not only defends against data collection but also secures your online activities for an added layer of privacy. By connecting to a VPN server, your internet connection remains encrypted, keeping your sensitive information confidential even if your data is intercepted.

Here are the top 3 Bitdefender VPN features that keep your personal data safe from intrusive company trackers:

  • Ad blocker and Anti- tracker. The Ad-blocker feature gives you total control over the ads you see so you can focus on the content you want. The Anti-tracker feature keeps you invisible to the trackers that gather your data (device type, location, web queries, shopping preferences, and such) and slow down your device.
  • Autoconnect - Just set it up once, and you will always be safe and anonymous on any network you join.
  • Internet Kill Switch - It automatically disconnects your computer, phone or tablet from the internet if your VPN connection drops out. By instantly stopping traffic from entering or leaving your device, it prevents your data from leaking and data collectors from catching you off-guard.

Take a stand against invasive data collection and reclaim the online privacy and freedom you deserve.
