VPN is network technology that provides the secure internet connection over a public network. VPNS keeps our connection private and secures our way of accessing the internet
How VPN works
VPN working is simple, it creates a secure encrypted tunnel using powerful VPN protocols, hides your original IP behind one of its own, and encrypts all your communication that passes through the secure tunnel allowing you to surf the web freely.
Let’s understand this by an example: Suppose you want to buy liquor bottle from the liquor shop but due to age restriction you can’t. So you called your older friend or elder brother and ask him to buy the liquor bottle from the shop for you, keeping your actual identity or transaction private or anonymous
Benefits of using VPN
- Blocking the ads: Most of the VPN offers you this feature and protects us from the malware and trackers.
- Security on public WiFi: You don’t know how much harmful public Wifi can be. Actually public Wifi is considered a trap and avoid as much as using the public Wifi. Well, it is very harmful since for hackers it is super easy to hack it and steal users’ information who are connected to the public Wifi. VPN encrypts your traffic and ensures that none of your data is stolen.
- Hide our Browsing history: Nothing is hidden when you go to the internet. Your internet service provider and your web browser can track just about everything you do on the internet. Most of the websites you visit can also keep track of your history. Web browsers can track your search history and tie that information to your IP address.
Suppose you’re searching the web for information about best course on Cyber Security. Guess what? Without a VPN, you’ve automatically shared your searching information and then you may start receiving targeted ads that could draw further attention to your condition.
- Hides your IP address : When you use VPN you keep browsing from IP address that you does not own. VPN uses an IP address that’s not your own, it allows you to maintain your online privacy and search the web anonymously.
- Access to the restricted contents: By using a VPN service, you can manipulate your machine’s IP address to other specific location like US, therein you can unlock access to Netflix and Streaming Content from Outside the USA.
- Bypass price discrimination: VPN can actually help you buy certain items, tickets and services cheaper. For example, cheaper flight tickets, since the price for those actually vary based on your location and IP address.
