Family Tech Tips: What is a VPN and why are they dangerous for my kids?

Introducing a new segment of the podcast… Family Tech Tips! These are short episodes that tackle a specific tech question I have been asked. If you are interested in me answering your question, feel free to hit me up on the DMs in Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. My username is FamilyTech on all three!

Today’s episode tackles the question I probably get asked the MOST. Kids will tell their parents they need this application to help make their phone faster or work better. The app they want is a VPN app. Listen to this episode to find out why I would never let my child install a VPN app and how you can check to see if one is already installed, and how to prevent your child from installing one in the future.
