What Is a VPN?

Learn here about Virtual Private Networks and what they can do for your digital anonymity and security.

So, what is a VPN?

The term “VPN” stands for Virtual Private Network.

As the name suggests, VPNs are a secure way of accessing the internet and keeping your connection private.

VPNs establish a virtual point-to-point connection between your device and the internet, sending your data through an encrypted tunnel. And they’re more important than ever for your digital privacy.

This is your internet connection without a VPN

When you browse the internet, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) gives your devices an IP.

This IP address uniquely identifies your device and allows it to send and receive information. It’s almost like your digital address. Regular internet connections are not encrypted. So, without a VPN, your ISP, your government, and everyone else snooping knows what you do online.

What’s more, depending on the legislation of the country you’re in, your ISP can track, monitor, store, and even sell your data and browsing history. This treasure trove of private information is targeted by governments, authorities, hackers, marketers, and data miners.

So, it’s time for you to regain your right to anonymity.

This is your internet connection with a VPN

To counteract all the online surveillance, you need a VPN.

When you use a VPN, your traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel. Your data can no longer be intercepted. Your ISP only knows you’re connecting to a VPN server but can’t see anything else anymore. And because your IP is hidden by the VPN, websites can no longer keep track of you either.

So, there you have it. A VPN encrypts your data and adds a layer of privacy to protect your identity. It also gives you plenty of other benefits.

Encrypt your data with a VPN

VPN software uses encryption on all data packets to and from your device to the internet. Encryption works by scrambling the information you transmit, making it impossible for it to be read by third parties. Without the decryption keys, your data is gibberish.

Attempting to crack it is not a feasible option either. Hacking a 256-bit AES secured connection requires very powerful computers and would take more than 3 million years to break.

Encryption protocols, also known as cryptographic protocols, determine the encryption method. Some VPN protocols are IKEv2, OpenVPN, and L2TP/IPSec. They secure your data as it travels between your gadget and VPN servers so that no one can snoop on your online activity.

Go for CyberGhost VPN. Here’s what it can do for you:

1. Hide your IP and surf anonymously online

Use CyberGhost VPN to hide your IP address and spoof your location. We have IPs available from over 7000 servers in 90 countries. Choose the best one for you and surf anonymously online!

2. Protect your digital identity

Your digital identity is being tracked by governments, authorities, ISPs, and advertisers. Whether it’s in the name of national security, data cap, or targeted marketing, your data is being harvested and your privacy invaded. It’s time to reclaim your digital freedom and protect your digital identity!

3. Break all geo-restrictions

CyberGhost VPN helps you bypass geo-restrictions so you can unblock content from over 35 streaming services. Get the full catalog of Netflix, or binge-watch BBC iPlayer’s top-rated service. The possibilities are endless! You will also be able to watch your favorite sports events.

4. Unblock websites

Restrictive networks and internet outages are some of the worst scenarios for internet users. Luckily, you don’t need to keep away from social media or streaming services. Reroute your internet traffic through CyberGhost VPN, unblock websites, and bypass censorship.

5. Torrent anonymously

Torrenting without a VPN isn’t safe since your IP address is publicly visible to anyone. The lack of encryption also makes it easy for your ISP and copyright holders to track you and log your activities. Get the best VPN for torrenting and enjoy unlimited bandwidth for your downloads.

6. Protect your connections on public Wi-Fis

Public Wi-Fis are the worst for your data security. The networks you use in cafés, airports, or hotels usually lack a secure set up or even a password. This makes it very easy for hackers and infiltrators to snoop on your network traffic. Stay safe on any public Wi-Fi network with CyberGhost VPN!

It’s your right to use a VPN

If you’re wondering if VPNs are legal, you should know that most countries have no laws banning or restricting VPN usage.

This isn’t to say that there aren’t some governments out there that stifle freedom of expression and resort to censorship. Such repressive regimes have resorted to outlawing the use of VPNs, citing reasons ranging from tackling extremist views to upholding national security.

Outside of these countries, VPNs are legal to use. However, bear in mind that activities considered illegal without a VPN are still unlawful even when you connect to VPN servers.
