VPN vs. Wi-Fi Security for Wireless Networks

By February 10, 2013

Follow me on:

Advocates of virtual private network (VPN) technology often promote VPN as a great solution for wireless network security. On the other hand, Wi-Fi incorporates its own built-in approaches to security, primarily via Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). Which one is better? While VPN works well for remote access and Wi-Fi hotspot uses, WPA/WPA2 security makes more sense when connecting to home and other local area networks. Of course, either one can be ineffective if set up insecurely, such as by choosing to use bad passwords.
