How VPN Works?
A Virtual Private Network is widely used to unblock sites, access the content which is available in a specific region or country, to browse anonymously and to hide your identity.
VPN tunneling creates an end to end connection which is unacceptable for third parties. This connection ends in the user device. For this purpose, the end device (user device) mush have an application/software.
This software runs in the background and does not shows any notification until there is not Performance error. This performance usually effects with a poor connection.
What is VPN Service?
A VPN service is that when you install a software or app on your device. This app connects with the VPN provider’s server using an internet connection. You are allowed to choose your desired connection location and also other settings like protocol type etc. These settings are accessed from the app that you have installed.
After connection, all your traffic (browsing) passes from the VPN provider’s server and then they hide your actual location and shows their server location to ISPs and other trackers.
