VPN (stands for Virtual Private Network) has become a necessity nowadays rather than just a tool to mask yourself on the internet. From accessing content which is restricted to a geographical area to connect over network securely; individual users as well as corporate firms; number of users are using VPN. VPN connections are encrypted which means someone is less likely to see the information sent and received by your computer/smartphone.
As when you connect to a VPN software, it encrypts your data. VPN then routes it through a server to your concerned online destination. As when this activity is tracked, it shows the traffic is coming from the VPN server not from your computer/smartphone and location thus protecting your online identity though VPN security is debatable. Though it is legal to use VPN services but you should always check local laws while using VPN in your geographical area.
