What is a VPN? How does it work?

The term VPN refers to a virtual private network. It’s a private network that allows you to remain anonymous and private online while using a public Internet connection. Sending an email, paying payments, or shopping online are all examples of online activity that may be protected using a VPN.

How does a virtual private network (VPN) work?

  1. When you connect to a VPN, your device directs your Internet connection to the VPN’s private server rather than to your ISP (ISP).
  2. Your data is encrypted and transmitted through another location on the Internet during this transmission.
  3. The data is decrypted once it reaches the server.
  4. The server’s answer is encrypted before it reaches the VPN, where it will be decoded by another VPN point.
  5. Finally, the decoded information reaches you.
