A virtual private network (VPN) is a secure network that enables users to access the internet through a private network.
VPNs are used to protect online privacy, secure sensitive data, and bypass restrictions placed on certain websites. The technology works by encrypting the data being sent and received, making it unreadable by anyone who intercepts it.
VPNs can be used to access the internet from remote locations, hide the user’s IP address, and keep online activities confidential. Businesses, individuals widely use VPNs, and governments to protect sensitive information, bypass internet censorship, and keep their online activities private. VPNs can be set up using software or hardware solutions and accessed from anywhere with an internet connection.
