TheVPNExperts Study Reveals Gush of VPN Users Due to COVID-19

VPN is the New Norm for Staying at Home in 2020

AUSTIN, Texas - May 23, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

A recent study reveals the usage of VPN services has increased across the world amid COVID-19. There have been stay-at-home orders in multiple countries like the United States, Australia, Italy, India, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, and others. 

This has resulted in an influx of activities like gaming, streaming, and working from home. And so is there a surge in Cybercriminals shifting their focus towards remote workers. Because of this, people have become more comfortable accessing their company networks using a VPN service, which is an easy solution to hopping on the company network.

Regions showing the most growth in VPN usage:

  • America
  • Europe
  • Asia 
  • Australia

The study, conducted by VPN publisher TheVPNExperts, revealed how fast the world is adapting to Virtual Private Networks. The study surveyed 6 leading VPN providers of the industry. According to the results almost every service has seen an increase in VPN users in the United States and Europe. The providers agree that the usage is mainly due to the pandemic situation across the globe.

Not every provider believes in the rise of VPN usage due to remote working, but due to increased streaming habits. This has also given rise to an increase in the usage of Netflix, a popular streaming service. It won’t be wrong to say the entire world is streaming and services like Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, HBO Now are growing exponentially. 

Staying at home has even changed the way people live. There has been an increased usage of a VPN in the evening time. This is probably because people are now either working in the evening or they are burning the midnight oil.

The United States accounts for 33.3% of the overall growth in VPN users, followed by Canada and Australia with 22.2% increased number of users due to COVID-19 for all 6 services.

COVID-19 is here to stay for a while, but VPN usage is here to stay for long. VPN providers are certain that companies will see the advantages of remote working and will start to apply it on a daily basis. So, the users will not fall down noticeably.

May 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — Russia interfered in the 2016 election and may try to sway next year's vote as well. But it's not the only nation with an eye on U.S. politics. American officials sounding the alarm about foreign efforts to disrupt the 2020 election include multiple countries in that warning. Concerns abound not only about possible hacking of campaigns, but also about the spread of disinformation on social media and potential efforts to breach voting databases and even alter votes. The anxiety goes beyond the possibility that U.S. adversaries could directly affect election results: The mere hint of foreign meddling could...

Where have the wild birds gone? 3 billion fewer than 1970

May 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — A comprehensive study shows there are nearly 3 billion fewer wild birds in North America than in 1970. The new study finds that the bird population in the United States and Canada was probably around 10.1 billion nearly half a century ago and has dropped 29% to about 7.2 billion birds. Study lead author Kenneth Rosenberg, a Cornell University conservation scientist, says the thinning of the flocks is happening before our eyes but is so slow we don't often notice. Rosenberg and colleagues projected population data using weather radar, which captures flocks of migrating birds, 13 different bird...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

May 27, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

May 27, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
