Happy Labor Day from ImOn Communications

Labor Day Originally, Labor Day was organized to celebrate various labor associations' strengths and their contributions to America's prosperity. Now it's primarily thought of as a day of rest for workers' well-being and marks the unofficial end of summer.

In observance of Labor Day, the ImOn Communications offices will be closed from Saturday, September 3rd, through Monday, September 5th, so that our employees may rest and enjoy the holiday weekend with their families and loved ones. As always, 24-hour technical support and emergency services will still be available by calling 319-298-6484. However, billing and account questions cannot be addressed during that time. We thank you for your patience and understanding and wish you a safe and enjoyable Labor Day.

What is a VPN?

Download Graphics to View With many of us working from home over the past two years due to Covid, you may have had to use something called a VPN. But what exactly is a VPN and why should you use it?

VPN stands for "Virtual Private Network." It is a service that acts as a security barrier to help protect your Internet connection and what you are doing online. It encrypts your data so that your information, online activity, files sent, and IP address are all hidden from potential hackers. This allows you to safely do things online at different locations, like when you work from home or use public Wi-Fi hotspots. That's why many companies want their employees to use VPN when working from home. It helps protect important business information that could get hacked on your home network.

You should always connect to your VPN before going online or accessing sensitive documents on your computer. This ensures everything is secure and all data is encrypted. While VPNs can protect your identity online and the data you send and receive, they don't protect against everything. They cannot protect your devices from malware, computer viruses, or phishing scams. To protect against these things, it is recommended you use antivirus or antimalware software.

While most companies have their own VPN service for their employees to use, you can get a personal VPN to protect your home Internet data. There are many different types of VPN services that provide different types of encryptions and protection, so be sure to do your research in order to choose the perfect VPN for your needs.
