Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the very first thing that comes to mind if someone thinks of online safety. VPN works by connecting host to Internet server through it’s private server instead of directly connection host with the Internet, by combining it with it’s server it creates a tunnel that helps the user to surf the web without any restrictions because by connecting through the VPN real-time IP address of user gets changed so he/she can also view the contents that are restricted by the government of their country and even the materials that are blocked in their geographical location.
