If you can call someone an internet lover, it's me! I’ve always been passionate about the online world. And I’ve developed a special love about the topics of security and privacy. Privacy is the ultimate asset to protect. As a seasoned security expert, I make every effort to stay up-to-date about security. And I’m happy to share my knowledge with our readers.

  1. Okay so there’s all the benefits and what VPNs can do for you, but how do VPNs actually work? Cause earlier all it said was that it helps keep your identity safe and you can still keep watching movies even when you’re in another country that doesn’t have it yet. But how does it do that?

    • Essentially, VPNs actually hide your real IP address to make it look like you’re somewhere else when you’re using it. This is because sometimes, websites tend to geo-block you once they check your IP address to see whether it can be opened in your region. A VPNs job is to connect you to the local network that you’re trying to access and once it does, all network traffic done on your computer is sent over to the VPN which makes it look like you are where the VPN says you are. To summarize it all, the VPN works with you to make it look like you’re there even when you could be on the other side of the world.

  2. Hi I just wanna know if getting a VPN would help me access my files when I’m in another country… Usually my documents can only be accessed at work and whenever I’m on vacation, being the workaholic that I am, I still want to be able to do them. I understand that a VPN can grant access to movie streaming subscriptions and all but does it do the same if I want to work remotely?

    • Hello there! To answer your question, yes it can do exactly that. They were actually originally used by office workers who wanted to access their files remotely. This is because VPNs are able to hide your IP address and make it look like it’s somewhere else. So even if you’re at home or on vacation, virtually, it still looks like you’re in the office with everyone else.
