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