I hear a lot of talk in the pfSense community about running a VPN from the pfSense instance, including whether to invest in hardware more suited for that as opposed to just any old SBC or basic computer (namely, whether the processor has hardware encryption). Does it actually provide that much more protection for your devices to connect to the VPN at the router level as opposed to the device level to make it worth the extra hardware requirements? What benefits does it give privacy wise, and how do you juggle switching from on-device VPN when you’re not connected to your main network and using the router’s VPN when you are?
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
