Why Use VPN?

Online criminals tend to “snoop” on public/hotel/coffee shop WiFi, and can steal passwords, credit card numbers, or other info you enter in websites or apps (i.e. Gmail, online banking, Amazon, etc.). When you use BC's Eagle VPN, even for personal vacation use, the traffic to/from your device is encrypted so the online criminals can't see it.
