You can think of a VPN (Virtual Private Network) as a secret tunnel that connects two points securely. Just like a tunnel, a VPN creates a private and encrypted connection between two devices or networks over the internet. The data transmitted through this tunnel remains hidden from prying eyes, making it an excellent way to protect sensitive information.
Using a VPN is one way to protect your online privacy and security by encrypting your internet traffic and masking your IP address. This has many benefits as detailed below:
To read the data, you need an encryption key. Without one, it would take much more than a lifetime for a computer to decipher the code in the event of a brute force attack. With the help of a VPN, your online activities are hidden even on public networks.
VPN servers essentially act as your proxies on the internet. Because the demographic location data comes from a server in another country, your actual location cannot be determined. In addition, most VPN services do not store logs of your activities. Some providers, on the other hand, record your behaviour, but do not pass this information on to third parties. This means that any potential record of your user behaviour remains permanently hidden.
If you work remotely, you may need to access important files on your company’s network. For security reasons, this kind of information requires a secure connection. To gain access to the network, a VPN connection is often required. VPN services connect to private servers and use encryption methods to reduce the risk of data leakage.
