What Is a VPN?
VPN stands for virtual private network, it essentially makes your internet connection private and your own. Instead of going through a public server run by your Internet service provider, a VPN will connect you to a different server through a so-called secure tunnel. That server then connect you to the wider web, keeping you shielded from prying eyes.
Your IP which stands for Internet Protcol address is hidden from everyone and any IP record is of the shielding server.The effect is that your IP address is unknown to any site you connect with, which essentially means you can acceess websites without knowing where you are and access services of other countries.
