Will using a VPN help me to prevent a typosquatting attack?
Asked 10 months 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:
- Suspicious malware or adverts
- 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.
