VPN stands for virtual private network, it’s essentially a way of securely transmitting data between your computer and another server over the Internet. A VPN server allows far-flung employees to effectively become a part of your non-profit’s secure in-office network over the public Internet. Think of it as a secure “tunnel” through which your data travels. The data that travels through this tunnel is encrypted, which goes a long way toward keeping would-be data thieves from eavesdropping on your remote workers.
Along With securing your data VPN can help you do various other things like:
- Helps you protect your identity on the web.
- Unblock geographically restricted websites: Use streaming services like Spotify, Netflix anywhere in the world.
- Access blocked sites on your Network: Access blocked websites on your network like Facebook on your school network.
Although Android is capable of connecting to a VPN on its own without the need of any third-party applications, but it is easy to connect to a number of servers instantly using a third party application.
