What is a VPN? 10 Things To Know... 🤔 👀

  1. A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a tool for your online security and digital freedom.
  2. A VPN can be installed on your computer, mobile devices, or router to protect all your digital data from hackers, cyber criminals, marketing companies, or government agencies.
  3. Once installed, to use VPN software is not difficult and you do not have to have deep technical skills.
  4. When you connect to a VPN server, the VPN provider encrypts all off your data and hides your real IP address. This is known as a “VPN Tunnel”.
  5. Even if your data is intercepted, the encryption makes the data totally useless because it cannot be understood.
  6. A VPN makes our activity online anonymous. Nobody, not even your ISP (internet Service Provider) can see what you’re doing.
  7. A VPN gives you peace of mind as you have less to worry about in terms of identity theft, credit card skimming, stolen passwords, hijacked computers, violated bank accounts, and more.
  8. Through a VPN you can “fake” your IP pretending to be connecting from wherever you like around the globe. Nobody can discover your real location.
  9. Providing you a “fake” IP, a VPN gives you access to geo-restricted websites. The anonymous navigation makes streaming and BitTorrent downloads more possible.
  10. A VPN is the only secure way to protect your privacy online and guarantee your security on the web. A VPN is your gateway to digital freedom.
