How to Use VPN Without Wi-Fi

Understanding VPN and Its Necessity

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) creates a secure tunnel between your device and the internet. This encryption keeps your data safe from prying eyes. But how can you use a VPN without Wi-Fi? The key is to find alternative ways to connect to the internet.

Alternative Internet Connections

1. Mobile Data

One of the most common alternatives to Wi-Fi is mobile data. Modern smartphones allow you to share your mobile data connection with other devices through tethering. Here’s how you can stay connected with ForestVPN using mobile data:

  • Enable Mobile Data: Ensure your mobile data is active on your smartphone.
  • Tethering: Share your mobile data connection with other devices by enabling tethering (also known as hotspot).
  • Connect to ForestVPN: Open the ForestVPN app and connect to a server.

– Portable and convenient.
– Available almost everywhere.

– Data caps and additional charges may apply.
– Potentially slower speeds compared to Wi-Fi.

2. Ethernet Connections

If you have access to a wired network, you can use an Ethernet cable to connect your device to the internet. This method is particularly useful for laptops and desktops.

  • Connect Ethernet Cable: Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into your router and the other into your device.
  • Launch ForestVPN: Open the ForestVPN app and connect to a server.

– Stable and fast connection.
– No data caps.

– Lack of mobility.
– Requires compatible hardware.
