Is it effective to use a VPN to prevent a replay attack?

Asked a year ago

Hello. As an accountant, I work with highly confidential client credentials which I enter into an online system on a daily basis. However, I have recently learnt about how replay attacks can intercept between network communications to capture this data. I therefore am looking for ways to prevent these types of attacks from occurring. Anyone know if a VPN is useful for this? Thanks in advance.

Replay attacks are when hackers try to access your account by repeatedly sending the same authentication request. It can happen when you're using basic HTTP authentication, which is not encrypted and can be easily stolen from memory by a hacker who has your password. The best way to prevent this attack is by using a VPN. A VPN creates an encrypted underpass between your device and the internet, making it nearly impossible for snoopers else to intercept your data.
