Happy April Fool’s Day, internet friends! As a VPN company, we thought we’d celebrate the occasion by sharing some of the most ridiculous, unbelievable, and downright hilarious online security myths out there.

Myth #1: VPNs are for spies and criminals.

Believe it or not, some people still think that VPNs are only used by spies and criminals. While it’s true that VPNs can be used to hide your online activity, the reality is that they’re also used by millions of law-abiding citizens around the world who value their online privacy.

Myth #2: VPNs are illegal.

Nope! VPNs are perfectly legal in most countries. In fact, many businesses use VPNs to secure their online communications and protect their sensitive data from cyber attacks.

Myth #3: VPNs slow down your internet connection.

While it’s true that some VPNs can slow down your internet connection, the best VPNs actually improve your online speed and performance by reducing lag and buffering.

Myth #4: VPNs can protect you from everything.

As much as we’d love to say that VPNs can protect you from everything, the truth is that they’re not a magic bullet. While VPNs can certainly help protect your online privacy and security, they can’t protect you from every type of cyber threat out there.

Myth #5: VPNs can teleport you to another country.

We wish! While VPNs can make it appear as if you’re browsing from another country, they can’t actually teleport you there. If only we had that technology!

So, there you have it – some of the most ridiculous online security myths out there. As a VPN company, we’re here to help you stay safe and secure online, no matter what day of the year it is. Happy April Fool’s Day, and stay safe out there!


This Valentine’s Day, share your sensitive dealings, not your feelings

Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day of love and letting yourself be vulnerable, even in the Information Age, where we’re so eager to share every detail of our personal lives with the world.

We post intimate details about our relationships on social media, we share our most private thoughts and photos, and we send sweet nothings via email and messaging apps.

This Valentine’s Day, PureSquare presents you all the ways you can, like love, be oblivious about the very real cyber dangers that exist. 

What’s mine, is yours. And yours. And yours, too

Valentine’s Day is here, and love is in the air! It’s the perfect time to express your feelings to that special someone. And what better way to do that than by sharing all your personal information with them?

Yes, you heard that right. This Valentine’s Day, don’t just give your heart away; give away your social security number, and credit card details too! After all, nothing says “I love you” quite like exposing your personally identifiable information to identity theft and online fraud.

An open letter. Very, very open

But why stop there? Why bother getting to know someone slowly and steadily? Take your oversharing to the next level by giving someone you’ve just met access to your email and text messages. They’ll appreciate being able to read all your correspondence, and you’ll feel closer than ever before.

Who needs privacy when you have love? And if you really want to show your vulnerability, why not share your deepest, darkest secrets with your new acquaintance? Like your passwords. After all, nothing says ‘trust’ like password swapping with a complete stranger! In fact, write it down on a post-it note and stick it on their forehead so it’s always with them. 

The only virus I’ve caught is the love bug

Speaking of the power of love, don’t bother with antivirus software, your love will protect your computer from all the malware and viruses out there.

I clicked a link and I liked it

Of course, we can’t forget about the romantic aspect of Valentine’s Day. And what’s more romantic than a surprise malware attack on your computer or phone? So go ahead and click on that suspicious-looking link in the email from your secret admirer. It’s not like your personal data is important or anything.

In all seriousness, though, Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and affection. But it’s also important to remember the importance of cybersecurity and keeping your personal information safe. So enjoy the day with your loved ones, but don’t forget to protect yourself online.

Happy Valentine’s Day from PureSquare!
