Will using a VPN help me to prevent a typosquatting attack?

Asked 2 years ago

Hello. As someone who types very fast, I am prone to miss-typing a URL when trying to find a website. However, I have heard that this type of mistake can be dangerous due to the fact that it can lead to landing on a fake website which can further lead to a typosquatting attack. I therefore would like to protect my device against such an attack. Does anyone know if a VPN is useful in this regard? Thanks!

Typosquatting can become a problem for users due to two main reasons:

  1. Suspicious malware or adverts
  2. Sensitive data application

Almost all VPNs with premium encryption can keep you safe by giving you an anonymous IP address. Moreover, some premium VPNs like NordLayer can block the malware-storing website entirely as they have a built-in threat protection feature.
