A Virtual Private Network (VPN) hides your IP address by replacing it with the IP of the VPN server you choose. Hiding your IP ensures data brokers and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can’t track what you do online. You can quickly change your location and have unrestricted and fast access to any blocked websites by simply changing the server.
