Virtual Private Network
VPN stands for "Virtual Private Network" and describes the creation of a secure network connection when using public networks. The VPN encrypts your Internet connection and masks your electronic identity. This makes it difficult for third parties to track your activities and spy on you. Encryption is done in real time. A VPN hides your IP address by letting the network redirect it through a specially configured remote server operated by a VPN host. This means that if you connect to the Internet through a VPN, the VPN server becomes the source of your data. A VPN works like a filter that encrypts all your data. Even if someone managed to get your data in their hands, it would be useless.
