A VPN masks your IP address and hides what you search online, websites you visit and essentially all the data packets sent and received from your device.
A VPN anonymizes your online presence and prevents marketers, hackers, ISPs and even government agencies from spying on your online activities.
By hiding your IP address and spoofing your actual geo-location, a VPN allows you to access geo-restricted websites. For instance, most people use VPNs to unblock streaming services like U.S Netflix which isn’t available worldwide. However, anyone with a VPN can virtually change their geo-location and unblock Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer and other such services quite easily.
