How to use a VPN
VPN technology is implemented at the expense of its resources of large companies, ordinary users can resort to the services of renting a VPN server from a provider, even easier-to the services of VPN services. To connect to corporate VPN networks and leased VPN servers, Windows has a special functionality for creating a VPN connection.
Why you need a VPN and how to use it
It works on the principle of creating a normal new network connection, but when configuring it, you must specify the address of the VPN server, the type of VPN connection, authorization data in the profile of the VPN provider, and possibly other information. However, for normal purposes, you can also use a simpler mechanism for connecting to a VPN – using software from different VPN services. This SOFTWARE is already configured to connect to the necessary VPN servers.
Such SOFTWARE is browser extensions and programs for Windows. If you only need a VPN connection for web surfing, you can only do it in the browser. VPN programs are used to work at the system level – if you need to access the Internet through a VPN server when working with the browser, and any other SOFTWARE that interacts with the network.
VPN services can be free or paid. There are a lot of good free services, but, as a rule, a free VPN connection loses in Internet speed to a paid one and is very limited by the possibility of choosing countries for spoofing IP addresses. And the last factor is important for those who need to access content that is only open within a certain country.
