  • VPN or virtual private network that protects your network traffic when you connect to the public networks. It hides your identity when connected by applying encryption, using a virtual tunnel. When you are connected to a VPN, third parties cannot track your online activities and your interests. By using a VPN, you can change your geographical location to some other countries. It also changes your IP address. Due to all these features of VPN, your online surfing becomes more secure. Even your ISP (internet service provider) like Airtel, JIO, etc. cannot know what exactly you are browsing and it makes it harder to know the websites you are visiting and sell your interests like your favorite place to visit, things you would like to purchase, etc, to other advertising companies and make money.

    Which one is called a good VPN?
    In my opinion, a good VPN should allow you to connect to more different locations, and it should be quick to connect and work much faster. Having very few ads or ad-free. it is better if it has multi-factor authentication like a password to open or finger scan, etc.
