Being without a VPN is like walking in public with your address on your shirt. What a VPN does is it works as a tunnel for your internet connection. No one outside can see what you do with VPN switched on.
Instead of connecting directly to the internet, your web traffic goes through a VPN server. This hides your IP address, and makes it look like your web traffic comes from your VPN service provider’s network, not your real location.
Another thing what a VPN does is that it encrypts your data. Only those who are supposed to can see your web traffic. This increases your privacy.
What a VPN is, is not just a gadget for tech enthusiasts. With a VPN you can:
hide your IP address, which is one way used to identify you
secure your connection in public Wi‑Fi networks
change your virtual location to access more websites and content
What a VPN does in the first place, is it protects your privacy. What you do on the internet with VPN switched on is only your own business.
A free VPN can be a security risk. It’s not cheap to run a VPN service. Typically, free VPN services collect your data to advertisers, foreign government actors or even criminals. Some spread malware or sell your bandwidth. If you don’t pay with money, then what are you paying with?
