Many of us are growing increasingly accustomed to doing our work from anywhere, anytime. It’s a skill we will certainly need in the years to come. But since I am working in London as we speak, I’ve been researching what it means to be truly location independent. To that end, blogger Sean Ogle has provided some excellent suggestions for being as safe and productive as you can while working overseas.
Suggestion 1: Reliable VPN
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and the primary purpose is to allow you to allow you to securely connect to a network remotely. A VPN can allow you to hide your actual identity or location. Many countries block certain sites completely, so the only way to access them is when connected to a VPN. A VPN can also make you look like you’re in the country, which can come in handy if you need location-specific search results, for instance. Sean recommends Express VPN.
