What is VPN and what is it for

Internet security is important. Previously, VPNs were used exclusively by large corporations, but now ordinary users are starting to use it more and more often. What kind of technology is this and for what purposes is it needed? Everything in order in this article.

What is VPN and what is it for

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a technology that allows a user to establish a secure, encrypted connection to the Internet, with which he can bypass local restrictions and maintain confidentiality.

As you might have guessed from the definition, VPN is often used to bypass blocking, which, by the way, has become more frequent in the HYIP industry lately. Domains are blocked on the territory of the Russian Federation, since the administrators of investment projects are hastily connecting mirror domains.

By connecting to the Internet, a fairly wide range of people gain access to your data - from Internet providers and owners of public Wi-Fi hotspots who can track all traffic passing through them, to sites that collect information about your behavior and even the country's authorities. who are interested in what you are doing.

VPN allows you to hide your data from those with whom you do not want to share.

In short, a VPN is needed for: reliable information protection, geolocation masking, access to regional content and secure data transmission.

How VPN works

VPN connects your device through an encrypted virtual tunnel to a remote server through which you connect to the Internet. This server can be located anywhere. Your ISP may know that you are using a VPN, but not for what purpose. For site owners, you become a foreign user.

Disadvantages

There are not many disadvantages of using a VPN, but they are still there. One of the main things, in our opinion, is speed. In some cases, a VPN connection may show up on the network speed. You have to pay for really secure VPNs. On average, the price is $ 7-10 / month for regular users, but if you pay, for example, for a year, the price will end up being much lower. Free VPNs are notorious for leaking their users' data, including their usernames and passwords. Some countries have laws that prohibit the use of a VPN. For example, in Russia, VPNs are prohibited from giving users access to prohibited sites, although this law has not yet been applied.

What to look for when choosing a VPN

  • Security... Security will be an important factor when choosing a service, since a good VPN should be a reliable way to access the Internet;
  • Speed... One of the main disadvantages of using a VPN is the speed cut. Fortunately, not all VPNs severely cut the connection speed, so this point is one of the most important when choosing a service;
  • Availability... It so happens that the VPN does not work on this or that server to which you connected, and you need to use one IP. In general, a VPN service should provide uninterrupted access to the server you are using. We recommend that you pay attention to this.

Examples of VPN services

To begin with, there are both free and paid options. Obviously, the paid ones will have much more advantages, because free options are limited, for example, by traffic, so we recommend using only paid options.
