VPN – Virtual Private Network

How does VPN work?

Let us now know how VPN works. When we access internet from mobile, our device works on home network, and shows current location. In such a situation, anyone can hack our personal data or important files through the Internet.

In such a situation, if we use VPN technology, then it will be very safe for us. As you all know that VPN is a Virtual Private Network. When we connect to VPN, it provides a private network to our device.

After which we access anything on the Internet, then it is completely safe. All data over VPN is transferred in encrypted form. Apart from this, it also changes the IP address of the device. When we connect to the VPN, it changes our location and IP address and sends our request to the Internet.

A VPN is a private network server. After we connect our device by logging into the VPN, our internet connection is encrypted.

Suppose, we type a query on the browser, then the VPN sends our query to the internet by changing our location and IP address. This keeps our current address and real IP hidden. Due to which our personal data remains safe and we can avoid hackers.

Apart from this, we can also easily access any block content on the internet. For example:- We can easily watch any ac video which is block on our location. Similarly, if any website, software or mobile app is blocked then it can also be easily accessed through VPN.

This is a connection that is completely private, no one knows where we access any website. In such a situation, even our ISP (Internet Service Provider) does not know which website we are accessing.

Because the ISP always keeps an eye on our query, but after connecting to the VPN, when we do some search on the browser or Google, the ISP does not know it. The ISP thinks that we are accessing the VPN server. But the VPN server provides us with a private connection, through which we can access any website or service in the world, even if the ISP has blocked it.

What are the benefits of VPN?

And after connecting to the VPN, whatever you access is stored in its servers, that is, the service provider whose service you are using, has complete information about what you are accessing.
  • By using this, many hackers are able to hide their identity to a great extent.
