What is a VPN?

A VPN means virtual private network. When one is activated, your data and online activity is shielded from third party trackers by connecting you to a private server before it connects to the server of the website you are visiting. You are given a temporary IP address, and your real, permanent IP address is hidden. This protects your online privacy and security, especially when you are connected to public wifi.
