I was reading this old article on Real estate agent opts for VPN. https://www.computerworld.com.au/article/158104/real_estate_agent_opts_vpn_/

So do we really need a vpn in this case?

My friend is also using PureVPN USA VPN service https://www.purevpn.com/servers/usa-vpn while he was traveling outside the US for working remotely.
