The Most Common Questions About Using a VPN Answered by IPVanish

With all of the varied information out there regarding a Virtual Private Network (VPN) the topic can be daunting. Especially if you are unfamiliar with what a VPN does and why you should use one.

Simply stated, a VPN protects your online identity and data by putting you in control of your IP address. Once you are connected to an IP address provided by a VPN, all of your online data ((emails, instant messaging, data transfers, online banking and all online browsing) is sent through an encrypted tunnel.  Encryption makes the data readable only by the recipient it was intended for.
