Benefits of using VPN
Encryption: VPN can encrypt all data transmitted over the connection.
VPNs usually slow down your connection speed (high-quality VPNs such as TikVPN have less difference) – however, if you experience throttling or network congestion problems with your Internet Service Provider (ISP), using a VPN can actually speed things up.
Ease of use:
Generally, all you need to do to set up a VPN is to register, download and install the relevant applications, and connect to the server of your choice – no technical skills or knowledge is required.
Bypass geographic restrictions and censorship: VPN blocks your IP, making you look like you are accessing the Internet from the location of the selected server. This allows you to easily access geographically restricted websites and streaming services such as Netflix.
How does VPN work?
How do you get started with VPN:
Register a VPN account
Install the client software or application of the VPN provider on your device
After you select a VPN to set up an account, you need to open the client software on your computer, log in, and select the server to connect to. The server you choose will depend on your needs: if you prioritize security and speed, please choose a server close to your physical location; if you want to bypass censorship and geographic restrictions, please choose a server from another country server.
After connecting, the software will encrypt all data before tunneling the data to the server of your choice. Then, the server will forward your data to the website you are visiting. Since the server will block your IP, the website will consider the data as coming from the server, not your device, and you can use this to remain completely anonymous.
