Think of 2020 and most of us wish if they could skip the year. While living in fear of the pandemic, people worldwide had some unusual experiences like social distancing and self-isolation. Though, the optimists with that ‘blessing in disguise’ belief counted on it as an opportunity to evaluate, revise, and improve their lifestyles. A Statista survey indicates how 77% of the respondents from the U.S. spent time at home more and 43% of them cleaned their house more.
After postponing it for months and probably years, homeowners are utilizing their stay-at-home time to bring home the long-pending improvements. And as always, technology lends a helping hand in that. From selecting smart gadgets for kitchens, gardens, and bedrooms to buying a VPN for enhanced internet-browsing performance and security, they are doing it all. A growing number of VPN users are devoting more time and attention to choose the top brands for setting up a smart home IoT ecosystem.
