A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secure encrypted connection that ensures sensitive data is delivered securely and privately through a less-secure network, such as the Internet.
By allowing the network to route your IP address through a VPN host’s specially configured distant server, a VPN hides your IP address. Using a VPN makes it harder for third parties to track users’ online activities and steal data, ensuring security, privacy, and anonymity for users.
