What is a VPN?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a secure tunnel between two or more devices. VPNs are used to protect private web traffic from snooping, interference, and censorship. It allow you to :

  • Hide your IP address and location
  • Encrypt your communications
  • View blocked websites from anywhere
  • Avoid censorship and surveillance
