VPN Awareness ⬆, Usage ⬇ Says Security.org

We all know the security benefits of VPNs. According to research by Security.org, VPNs are top-of-mind with Americans, whether for personal or business use, but, and surprisingly, use is down year-over-year.

Key findings on perception, usage and value of VPNs from nearly 1,000 U.S. adults include:

  • 85 percent aware of VPNs and what they do, up from 72 percent last year
  • 41 percent use VPNs for personal or business reasons, down from 49 percent last year
  • Free VPNs used by 41 percent, up from 29 percent last year
  • Cost remains the top barrier for adoption with 23 percent indicating VPNs are “too expensive”
