- VPN creates a secure connection
Connecting to the internet via a VPN establishes a secure virtual tunnel between the VPN and one of its servers. This tunnel is then used to transfer all your internet traffic.
- VPN changes your IP address
Once your internet traffic goes through the VPN tunnel, your IP address changes. This means that websites and services consider you to connect from where your selected server is located.
- VPN encrypts your data
To ensure the tunneling process is secure, VPN hides your data under code (encrypts it) so no information can escape and no one can identify who you are.
