A VPN is Virtual Private Network and in general we can define it as a
technology that adds privacy and security to public and private networks, including Wif-Fi and
internet hotspots. The VPN allows you to surf the internet anonymously and securely wherever you
are, without third parties being able to intercept or limit internet browsing. But, how does a VPN
work? First of all it is an encrypted tunnel (secure and encrypted) that connects you to the
Internet allowing you to surf the net in a free and anonymous way through a dedicated and private IP
address that masks your actual physical navigation position.
WHY USE A
We are now connected to the Internet at any time, at home, at work, at
the bar and especially when we are traveling. We connect with the computer, the laptop, the tablet,
with our smartphone. It is impossible not to be online at any time of our daily life, between
e-mails, social networks, forums, blogs, chats and online games that make us feel as if being
connected is no longer an optional but a necessity. Each of us continually provides our information
online without considering the fact that the internet can be a very dangerous place if not used
properly and if we are not protected above all, our data can be stolen through espionage or mass
data collection and subsequently put up for sale. Using a VPN can help you improve your privacy and
Using a VPN has many advantages:
Anonymous Navigation: Hides your IP address and
In short, when we connect to a VPN, the original IP assigned to us by the network service
provider is replaced by one of the VPN server IPs. For example, if your internet service provider
(Telecom, Vodafone, ...) has assigned you a Rome IP (by virtue of your physical location)
22.214.171.124, when you connect to a server in the US via the VPN on your IP changes to
6,243,627.9. This way your original IP will remain anonymous and even your ISP cannot track your
online activity. You can choose between different VPN servers located around the world such as
USA, UK, Australia, India or any of the 94 countries around the world.
The VPN uses encryption to protect your data. For example your luggage when you do check in at
the airport before taking the flight. Every time you have to carry out the checks and pass the
baggage inside the scanner where everything inside is checked. Internet connection works like an
airport scanner: when you transfer data over the Internet, they travel in the form of packages.
These packages can be viewed and checked / spied on by anyone or even stolen without you
noticing, using simple tools available on the Internet. Who can see your data? Hackers, ISPs and
Government Agencies. Now imagine that the scanner is not able to detect what is inside your
luggage. The same mechanism applies when you use a VPN for your connection. In this way, when you
are online, nothing can be intercepted, viewed or tracked.
Watch your favorite content View blocked sites
from anywhere. If the Internet is censored in your country or you want to access sites and
services limited by your ISP, a VPN masks your location to provide you with free and unlimited
access. With the VPN you can unlock and view all blocked sites and services like Facebook,
Twitter, Skype, YouTube and Gmail.
When you are connected to a VPN your ISP sees your encrypted traffic pass through the VPN
servers, but it cannot decrypt the data or know the websites you visit.
Protect your identity
The VPN not only protects your web browser, but also your emails, Skype conversations, bank
details and anything else you do or watch online - whether you are at home, in the office, at the
bar or traveling around the world.
Prevents third-party monitoring
By hiding the IP address and location, the VPN makes it more difficult for third-party sites and
services, improper charges or displaying advertisements depending on your location.
