The security of public internet access often leaves something to be desired. If you want to move around safely on the internet using your own VPN (“Virtual Private Network”) is a great way to do just that. By creating a personal VPN server, you also have access to the local home network via any internet connection.
To set up your own virtual, private network, you need a computer system that can function as its server. For this Raspberry Pi is a cost-effective option. You can make your own VPN server on Raspberry Pi using the free VPN server software OpenVPN, which is available to download online.
