VPN (Virtual Private Network)Edit

VPN (virtual private network) is a private communication network used by many companies and organizations to connect securely over a public network. Usually on the Internet it is encrypted and so nobody except the endpoints of the communication can look at the data traffic. Some VPN services are offered for a monthly fee, others are free or ad-supported.
