What is a VPN?
So, VPN is a technology that is based on the purpose of protecting the privacy of users. It implements an encrypted Internet connection over the normal Internet connection provided by the provider. Various corporations and organizations use VPN networks to remotely access their employees to certain information that may be a trade secret or simply undesirable for leakage to the side. VPN reliably protects your data from hacker attacks, surveillance by special services, and other unauthorized access or unwanted access by the provider itself. Individual VPN users may need it for various reasons, such as: journalistic or political activities; any other activity that causes conflict with the authorities or different corporations; involvement in big business, show business or the elite circle of society; the presence of other reasons for detractors. If our outgoing Internet connection is not secured, all outgoing traffic can be intercepted by hackers, and our IP address can be tracked by the authorities. Whether our provider wants it or not, it is obliged to give out our location by our IP address at the request of certain government agencies.
VPN technology creates a separate secure connection, called a tunnel, based on our Internet connection. Our outgoing traffic is encrypted and gets not directly to the destination server, but through a tunnel through an intermediary server-a VPN server. Neither the provider nor the attacker will be able to access this traffic, and even if they do, they will not decrypt it. Only we and the VPN server have a traffic decryptor.
Why you need a VPN and how to use it
When using a VPN, the connection output shows not our real IP address, but the IP of the VPN server. With a VPN, you can use the Internet in public places without fear of intercepting usernames, passwords, and other confidential data. You can post various types of information on the network without fear of calculating authorship by IP address. You can visit sites that are banned in the country, which are restricted in certain countries to allow only their own residents, or watch videos that are blocked on YouTube.
