VPNs have long been used by countries with limited freedom of expression, such as Russia, Iran or China. These services allow people in these countries to access sites such as Facebook, Youtube or even Google. Thus these services are widely defended by associations dedicated to individual freedoms, the protection of privacy, rights and freedoms, for a more open, secure and free Internet.
VPNs also allow students to connect to sites from their university that limit use to only a few servers, for example the university website, Wikipedia, the email box. Online players can play safely with a network which has hidden IPs. They will be less likely to see their online game destabilized by a DDOS attack, their ping will be preserved durably. A person looking for information on the media of a country that only allows access to users in this country will freely browse the wanted data whether text, video, images.
A VPN can be a very good solution if you want to avoid technology brands and their tracking scripts, if you want to avoid seeing targeted ads and feel constantly monitored by commercial agencies. The VPN makes it possible to unlock all the area of the Web, but in particular to enjoy full confidentiality. The new IP address gives you the option to not get your IP put on file. The connection to the VPN server will generate anonymous and encrypted surfing with your network traffic. The ISP can no longer see the sites we are going to. We don’t have to worry anymore about the use of our personal information, the registration of our data.
To find out if the VPN is working properly, we can check our IP address. If this is similar to our VPN connection, it means that we are browsing through a VPN server.
