What is a VPN?

A VPN is a Virtual Private Network. It’s like a tunnel that only you can travel through between your computer and your destination. For example, if you are using your computer at a cafe, all the other customers are on the same local network as you. However, all your traffic on that local network is encrypted, so a hacker or criminal can not see what you are doing.

Also, a VPN allows you to avoid blocks on websites at your office or on your network. For example, if your favorite website is blocked, a VPN can usually help you to “jump the firewall”, and then you can view that website. Is Facebook blocked? If so, a VPN will help you “jump the firewall” so that you can securely and privately view and use Facebook.
