This article is about what Virtual Private Network ( VPN ) is and how it works and how to use VPN on mobile and computer etc.

The need for VPN i.e. Virtual Private Network has increased very much today with the advancement of the Internet. Today, every day there are reports of cyber blackmailing and fraud.

We need to use a VPN to avoid such attacks. This usage becomes more important when you are using a public network such as wifi.

VPN are easily available today for our mobile, tablet, and PC. Most of these are free and some of them are paid.

VPN is mostly used for two types of work –

1- Cyber ​​Security
2- By-passing country restriction on sites

The most important is to provide secure encrypted by the VPN. In this article, we will learn about every aspect of it in detail.

What is VPN

VPN is a device in which you use the Internet by creating a private tunnel on any network (private or public wifi).

VPN is a virtual private network, ie any chat, messaging, internet surfing, etc. is done by it, which is exchanged in a private data form ie Encrypted form.

Due to the data being encrypted, even if hackers hack that data, they cannot read it by any means. Thus our browsing is safe.

In this way, the security and privacy of users’ data remain.

They are mostly used to protect sensitive data in large corporate sites, government sites. Which was the initial reason for creating the VPN?

How does VPN work

VPN companies provide an IP address on their behalf and hide your IP address.

In this way, you are browsing the Internet on their IP address, but they have your IP address.

Now consider it as such,

For example, there is a website called XYZ which is banned in America (USA) i.e. it is not accessible in America, it is Illegal. But there is no ban in Dubai.

Now whenever that user will enter the URL of XYZ in their browser from anywhere in America, then the user will provide internet service. The ISP will block it. Because the Internet service provider (ISP) will know that it is America’s IP address.

So the citizen of Dubai will activate VPN service on their mobile or computer to access this site.

During activation, he will choose his country in which the site is not banned, that is, Dubai will choose.

Now that VPN company will provide him an IP address of his Dubai server, which he has to choose by clicking automatically.

Now an American citizen’s VPN will successfully connect to its UAE server.

After that, the user will leave the VPN application open in the background and come to their home screen.

Because whatever the user searches, even though he is in Dubai, his network will behave only through Via Dubai. So it will be of Dubai because the VPN company will show the IP of Dubai instead of the user’s original IP. Thus, he will be browsing on the net as a Dubai citizen.

And in this way, they will be able to access the site.
Since the VPN’s data flows in an encrypted form, the ISP of an America will only work to transmit the data to the citizen of Dubai.

But where and what he is getting the original data from, he will not know.

However, for the information, let me tell you not to use a VPN for illegal works in the USA, or else you may have to pay crores of rupees.
