How to use VPN?*

Are you concerned about online security or privacy? Or your private information does not reach the hands of hackers? Want to keep your online shopping, search results, bill payment information safe? If yes, then it is possible.

VPN can solve your problems like this. Today we are telling you in detail what VPN is and how it can help you.

Visiting or transacting on unsecured websites means exposing your private information and browsing habits. But VPN i.e. Virtual Private Network keeps you safe while using public network.

It encrypts your internet traffic and hides your online identity. In this case, it becomes difficult for third parties to track your online activity and steal your data.

VPN connects your computer or smartphone to a server computer and you can browse the internet using that computer's internet connection. VPN is not illegal.

It is used worldwide both institutionally and individually. Companies and government agencies also use it. So that your data can be protected.

It is also used in countries where there is a strict governance system. In short, VPN can be used for your online security on public networks.

How does VPN work?

When you are connected to a secure VPN server, your Internet traffic travels through an encrypted tunnel. Which no one can track or see. Whether it's a hacker or the government or your internet service provider.

Of course, your internet data cannot be read or read. To understand how VPN works, let's look at the difference between two scenarios, without VPN and with VPN.

When we use a website without a VPN, we connect to the site through an Internet Service Provider (ISP). The ISP gives us a unique IP address. Because the ISP directs and manages our overall Internet traffic.

In this case, the website we visit, the ISP can keep information about it. How can you protect our privacy in such a situation? Now let's talk about another situation i.e. internet connection with VPN.

When we connect to the Internet through VPN, the VPN app (also known as VPN client) on our mobile or computer creates a secure connection with the VPN server. Even in such a situation, the internet that reaches us is rerouted through the ISP itself.

But the ISP cannot see the final destination of such traffic. And the website we are visiting cannot identify our real IP address. Now let's discuss why VPN is needed from here.

Why is VPN necessary?

Software giant Microsoft developed VPN for the first time in 1996. So that employees working outside the office can access the company's secure network.

As the productivity of the company increased due to this, other companies also started adopting it. In this case, you may think that at what time should we use VPN?

For example, you can use VPN while streaming, traveling, using public WiFi, gaming, shopping, online transactions, etc. How many types of VPN?

Basically there are two types of VPN, remote access VPN and site to site VPN. Remote Access VPN allows users to connect to another network through a private encryption tunnel.

It can be connected through the company's internet server or public internet. Site to Site VPN is also called Router to Router VPN. It is mostly used in the corporate sector.

Especially, there are important offices of the company in different areas. In this case, Site to Site VPN creates such a closed internal network, so that all locations can be connected together. It is called intranet.

Overall, the benefits of VPN are that your browsing history, IP address, location, streaming location, device and web activity are hidden. Along with the advantages, it also has some disadvantages.

For example, slow speed, no cookies protection and no overall privacy. Despite being so secure, VPN cannot be called a service that can provide complete security. Because it can hide data from hackers, government and ISP.

But when the VPN service company wants, they can access that kind of data. Therefore, in such a situation, it is considered appropriate to take VPN service from a reliable VPN provider.

How to choose a good VPN?
