    So many "security" apps and services there must be overlap but I'm not certain:

    Router with WPA or other security;
    Bitdefender Box-type security devices;
    Bitdefender app antivirus;
    VPN;
    etc.

    How do I fully understand the capabilities and limitations of the different offerings; what features overlap or duplicate entirely; and what really works?

    Thank you

    VPN, WPA, and antivirus provide different types of security.

    Not sure what you mean by "Box type". Do you mean a hardware firewall?

    Most VPNs log at least some data. Hotspot Shield even injects code and advertising into your traffic. Roll your own VPN if you want that security, I can give you a link if you want :)
