What is a VPN?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and the most important feature of VPN is the privacy it provides when you are connected to it, However that is not it.

While connected to a VPN, all your data is encrypted through a secure tunnel i.e whenever you send a request to access a website the data you send and the data you receive will be encrypted and no one will be able to access your browsing history.

Also, VPN helps you bypass Geo restrictions by helping you connect to a different server around the world so that you will be able to access sites that are restricted in your country, Wonder how ? Let us explain.

Every Time you visit a website, the website takes requests from your ISP ( Internet Service Providers ) IP. So if your IP is located in the US or Canada, it is easy for you to connect, But if your IP shows a location other than these two, the website recognizes you as a viewer from another country and automatically implements restrictions which will lead to not accessing the channel or limited access.

When connected to a VPN server from US or Canada, the website you are accessing reads your IP as one among these two locations and provides a free hand for you to watch the matches. Now this is what makes VPN so amazing!!!
