What is a VPN and why it needed?
As from the table of content, the very first topic is what a VPN is and why it needed? Well if you know well about VPN then you can skip this. These basics I am covering because I got few emails that and found that newbies still have some fundamental doubts that are the only reason to cover basics about every article.
So let’s roll on with what a VPN is…
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. From the full form, only you can predict 30% of what exactly a VPN is. A Virtual Private Network hide your personal information while browsing and provide you more security. It will hide your IP location. It means you can browse anything without leaving any trace on the internet.
Why a VPN needed while browsing?
Whenever you are making any online transaction, you need security. A VPN will ensure your safety during any online payment. Let’s take another example to clarify that what is the need of virtual private network? If you are living in India, you might be faced some websites are restricted to browse. You got a message whenever you try to open those sites as “The site you are trying to access blocked as the instructions of Department of Telecommunication of India”. Have you ever got such kind of message? 😉 If not then you are a decent guy ;). You might be thinking, and you only got if you browse some illegal sites especially Porn sites. If you never got such kind of warning, then you are a good guy as I mentioned above.
Have you ever think how someone traces that you are using that particular site which banned in India? The answer is, your ISP(Internet Service Provider) traces you IP(Internet Protocols) and come to a conclusion that you are browsing from India… and they are strictly got the instructions from Department of Telecommunication, India to ban those websites.
But think, you are using a good VPN that is hiding your IP and showing that you are browsing from anywhere in the world say the USA. Now your ISP is not fetching your location, and you now banned from browsing any website.
I think you cleared with the core functionality of Virtual Private Network. Let’s move on our new topic from the table of content. So our new topic is Overview of Total VPN.
