VPN (Virtual Private Network) – is a technology, that allows to set up one or several network connections (a logical net) over the other network (the Internet). Although the reliability of public network is not high enough, it does not in any way influence the reliability of the logical net due to the use of different encryption methods (encoding, data authentication, public and private key management, protection against replays and ciphertext creation).
In other words VPN is your personal secured connection to a website, e-mail, chat, payment system and others via VPN provider server. All the data is encrypted.
VPN is used by bankers, brokers, Wi-Fi users, gamers, bloggers – everyone who cares about their network security.
VPN is also often used in order to skirt the ban and get an access to websites, which are blocked in local network or in the whole country. For example, you work in an office and your system administrator has cut off your favorite social network or an online dating site. Connect to your VPN and you will be no longer limited in chatting with buddies, meeting new people online or looking through some spicy things. Getting other country’s IP instead of your hidden one is another important advantage in using VPN. Isn’t it nice to be untraceable?
