Whether you are being censored by your government or a private or public organization, you know that online censorship is more common than people think.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) redirects your connection to the Internet via a remote server run by a VPN provider. This way, the VPN server becomes a secure launching pad for you before you access various websites. All the network traffic between your device and the VPN server is directed through a secure virtual tunnel. All of the data sent and received is encrypted. Best of all, your device appears to have the IP address of the VPN server, protecting your true identity. As far as websites are concerned, you’re browsing from the server’s geographical location, not your computer’s location.
There are two types of VPN, which are different and can make a difference depending on your goal. This article will explain the differences and how best to leverage them. As always, The GoTo Tech Guru is here to help with any questions or the implementation of VPN on your computers.
