WHAT IS A VPN?
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a technology that connects two computers over the internet using a secure connection. This secure connection is often referred to as a VPN tunnel. Using a VPN tunnel lets you access every website and online service privately and securely by encapsulating or encrypting your data before it transfers across the internet. This will prevent hackers, internet service providers, copyright watchdogs, government agencies, and corporations from tracking and monitoring your online activities
Beware Of The “The Internet Spies”
Before you can browse the internet, you must first connect your device to the internet via your Internet Service Provider(ISP). From this point, it is your ISP which then connects you to any websites that you want to visit online. As your data is passing through your ISP’s servers it can easily be viewed by all of the “internet spies”. This group of spies includes not only your internet service providers, who now, thanks to congress, can collect data on your browsing history and sell it to advertisers; but also corporations, governmental agencies, your workplace, or school, and hackers who want to steal your confidential information.
How does a VPN help me browse anonymously?
On the other hand, when using a Virtual Private Network, you will still connect to your internet service provider first; however, your ISP will no longer connect you directly to the websites you want to visit. Instead, you will connect to a server operated by the VPN provider. As your data passes through the VPN tunnel it is encrypted. As a result, it will exit the tunnel with a new identity and continue on to its destination. Now anyone monitoring your online activity will not see the websites you visit. Because all of your internet traffic is passing through the VPN tunnel. Your ISP and all the other “internet spies” will only see that you are connecting to the VPN’s server.
