What is VPN in cyber security?

A service that encrypts your internet connection for secure and private browsing.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a service that encrypts your internet connection and routes it through a secure server. This masks your IP address, making your online activities more private and secure. VPNs are commonly used to protect data on public Wi-Fi networks, access restricted content, and maintain privacy from internet service providers and cybercriminals. By using a VPN, you can browse the internet with greater security and anonymity, reducing the risk of data breaches and tracking.
