How Can Digital Nomads Take Advantage of eSIM Usage
We live in the age when most of us work online. We need to be connected 24/7/365. If you are a digital nomad traveling a lot, you should have heard about the eSIM technology that has revolutionized the way people stay connected.
With the launch of eSIM data bundles, Keepgo has made it possible for digital nomads to travel and get the best connectivity services in different countries worldwide.
What are eSIMs?
It’s so frustrating that you need to figure out where to get a new SIM card every time that you come to a new country, all the while you do so with no data on your phone. It feels like such a chore when you are landing somewhere and you are jet lagged. You just want to enjoy a new place where you’ve just arrived instead of thinking about getting a new SIM card. That's when an eSIM comes in.
eSIMs, or embedded SIMs, are a new type of SIM card that is embedded into a device and cannot be removed or replaced. This makes them a more secure and convenient option for digital nomads, as they don't need to worry about carrying multiple SIM cards for different countries or losing them. eSIMs also allow for more flexible plans and data usage, as they can be easily activated or deactivated as needed.
Advantages of eSIMs for Digital Nomads
One of the biggest advantages of eSIMs for digital nomads is the ability to switch between different carriers without having to physically change lines. This means that digital nomads can easily switch between different carriers as they travel, depending on their data needs. eSIMs also offer better security and privacy, as they cannot be easily lost or damaged.
With an eSIM, you get data from the moment you arrive to another country. It is so important for digital nomads because it takes some much of the stress out of traveling.
Another reason to get an eSIM for digital nomads traveling to lots of different countries is that they’d have to get a new SIM card every time they come to a new place. This can be extremely annoying and expensive. With Keepgo, you can get an eSIM that works in all the countries you are going to visit, without needing to switch the line.
With an eSIM, you can keep your phone number for texting and calling whenever needed inside your phone. You do not need to take it out every time you go broad or travel to another country. You can use both - your eSIM and physical SIM card - simultaneously. The physical SIM card and your real phone number should be useful when you need to pass the two-factor authorization when you try to sign in to your email, social media or any other account. The services of a physical SIM card should be useful to you whenever you get contacted by your bank, official or governmental organization that only have your local phone number.
Moreover, using an eSIM for data and your local physical SIM card for texting and calling can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars on your connectivity bill. We've already provided some examples on how you can reduce your monthly connectivity bill when using Keepgo services with Rogers and Bell in Canada or AT&T and T-Mobile in the US.
How to Install an eSIM
Installing an eSIM is easy and straightforward. Most modern smartphones, including the iPhone and Google Pixel, now have the option to use eSIMs. If you're unsure if your device is compatible, simply check with the manufacturer or simply click here.
Once you have confirmed that your device is compatible, simply follow the instructions to install your Keepgo eSIM:
Choosing the Right eSIM Data Bundle
There are many different Keepgo eSIM data bundles available. When selecting an eSIM data bundle, consider the coverage in the countries you will be visiting. At Keepgo, you can find several eSIM data bundles working in the same country. When choosing the best option for you, think about other destinations you are going to visit and choose the eSIM data bundle that covers all those countries.
For example, if you need an eSIM data bundle for the USA and Canada, you may consider installing Sagittarius. If you are going to the USA, Canada and Europe, then Phoenix eSIM data bundle should be a better option for you.
It's important to browse and compare different eSIM data bundles to choose one that is right for you.
Keeping Your eSIM Secure
As with any technology, it's important to keep your eSIM secure. This means protecting your device with a strong password and keeping your personal information private. Additionally, it's important to keep your device updated with the latest security patches and software updates. This will help ensure that your eSIM remains secure and that you can use it without any problems.
Besides, at Keepgo, all eSIM data bundles feature Residential Privacy IP that hides your real IP location. This type of IP address ensures that other websites are unable to track your physical location through your IP address. If you were to use your actual IP address, other websites could potentially sell your information to third-party advertisers or use it to identify your real name, address, interests, and other sensitive data.
To see what information other websites can access based on your IP address, you can visit a website like https://www.iplocation.net/.
By using Keepgo's Privacy IP, you can rest assured that your location remains private and unknown. This is why you may notice web advertisements in different languages - advertisers are unable to gather enough data to create personalized ads for you based on your IP address alone.
Depending on your data plan, you may receive a Privacy IP address from various countries such as Hong Kong, France, Spain, the USA, and more. If you are a Keepgo eSIM user, you can easily find information about your IP address under the "More Details" tab in your account. Simply go to our website, navigate to the "eSIM Bundles" menu, and click on "Privacy IP location" added next to different eSIM data bundles.
In conclusion, eSIMs offer digital nomads a convenient and secure option for staying connected while on the move. With the ability to switch between different carriers as needed, eSIMs offer digital nomads the flexibility and freedom to work from anywhere. So, if you're a digital nomad, be sure to take advantage of the benefits of eSIMs and stay connected on the go!
