What is a VPN?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, encrypts your online data and reroutes it through secure servers (known as VPN servers), concealing your IP address to protect your identity and ensuring safe use of public Wi-Fi.


A brief look at VPN

VPN stands for "virtual private network" - a service that helps you maintain your online privacy. VPN creates a secure, encrypted connection between your computer and the Internet, providing a private tunnel for your data and communications when you use the public network.

To better understand how VPNs work, imagine that the Internet is a real-life city, and you are walking down the street, heading to the location you want to visit (a website). You are fully visible at this time. Anyone can follow you along your track, record your activities and peek into your private life, identity, preferences, and more. Worse yet, you are traceable so that they can follow you home.

A VPN builds a dedicated tunnel between you and your destination, enclosing you, disguising your identity anonymously, and preventing anyone from snooping on any of your information.
