They were originally created just with the purpose of connecting business network together in a secure way over the internet. But now it comprises of 26% of the internet. Defining in other words, we can say that VPN is a service which connects your computer, laptop, tablets, smartphones to the next computer which is known as server through an encrypted tunnel to safe guard your privacy and protect the data.

Working Mechanism

  VPN works through routing the internet connection of your device by your chosen private server in order to take off data from VPN rather than your device while the data is transmitted onto the internet. It simply acts as an inter mediator when you connect to the internet by hiding the IP address.

Through encryption in which the information is hidden and through decryption through which encrypted data is decoded and made readable again. When you connect to a VPN through its secure tunnel the data gets encoded or encrypted and transferred into an unreadable code to pass over the devices. After this on wards your device now is seen under local network as the VPN wanted. This is why your IP is now changed by VPN service provider. That’s it you are all done, you can now browse out the internet safely without any privacy issues.

   VPN is categorized in 2 types :

  1.

This type of networking comes under the intranet based VPN. But if an office tries to connect to another company then it will fall under the Extranet based VPN.
