I have worked in the tech industry for the better part of 20 years. I have run my own company for over 17 years. So, I sorta know tech.
One thing you will find when you are traveling and, say, log in to your bank or ebay or most secure sites is that they “freak” out as your “IP” or computer address is NOT the same as you normally use from home. If you are on the other side of the planet, most of the time security bells and whistles go off like crazy and shut you down until you call or enter a code or whatever. Now this is done to safeguard you, so what can you do to work around this.
Here is what I do and you can too for FREE. It is safe and it works. Note this is not for those who only have 1 laptop and that is it. If you have a PC at home and then use a tablet or laptop on the road, you will love this.
Look at this product, again it is free for the basic program. www.LogMeIn.com
With this product you can load it on your home PC and then run your home PC from anywhere in the world like you are sitting at home (yes you must leave your PC on while you travel). So, all the passwords, logins and IP address ID’s remain the same since all your banks think you are still at home. I just love this. I use it all the time.
Now some words of waring. Your password for this software better be really good. It better have upper and lower case letters, some numbers and a symbol too. It would also be a good idea to NOT have your laptop ‘remember’ the password in case it were to become lost or stolen. Remember you are getting full access to your home PC. Clear?
What other reasons to have this? Let’s say you forgot something like a confirmation, or a document or whatever, you login and email it to yourself where you are.
So take a look at this free product and see if you don’t love it too! – René
