What is a VPN?

You may have come across a three-letter abbreviation ‘VPN.’ What does a VPN stand for? What does it do?

A VPN is short for a virtual private network. It was developed in 1996 by Microsoft to give their remote workers a safe way to use corporate resources.

Nowadays, VPN clients are used all around the world and provide a protected Internet connection for millions of people.

How does a VPN work?

The main purpose of a VPN service is to establish a secure connection and to protect your data from cybercriminals. Let’s see how it works:
You
Browsec
Internet
When you connect to the Internet, your device is assigned a certain number – an IP address – which is visible to your Internet service provider (ISP). The ISP establishes the connection between your device and the website you need. Normally, the traffic goes through your ISP’s servers, making your online activity visible to the ISP organization.
A VPN serves as a virtual shield for your device. It routes traffic through a secure tunnel so that your IP address can’t be tracked. In this case, your data is encrypted and can be seen only by you and the VPN server.
Browsec doesn’t log any information that can identify you personally. It masks your location and ensures your security, even if you connect to a public Wi-Fi spot.

Why do I need a VPN?

Enhance online privacy

Your IP address can reveal a lot about you. When you secure your connection, no one can use your data.

Bypass censorship

Many sites block their content in specific countries. A VPN changes your location, helping you overcome geographical restrictions.

Shield browser activity

Your online actions can be seen by your ISP and other third parties. A VPN gives you protection from hackers and data sniffers.

Prices may differ depending on where you live. A VPN helps you save money when you shop online or buy tickets.
