What is a VPN?

A VPN or virtual private network extends a private network across a public network and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. It is kind of like a secret tunnel on the internet that can hide any data you send or receive. This keeps your information private from your internet service provider (ISP), advertisers wanting to track your search history and malicious people wanting to steal your data. It can also make it appear that you are online in another location. You can use a VPN on your computer, tablet, mobile device, smart TV, or router. On any of these devices, using a VPN can help you remain more anonymous by hiding your location online and it can provide added security when you connect to public Wi-Fi. WizardPig’s VPN uses military-grade encryption, it keeps no activity logs to track your browsing and it provides safety on public networks. However, MY favorite part about it is that, even though it does all that, it does not interfere with streaming or browsing and it works anywhere because it even bypasses any local internet censorship. You can also use it on all of your devices and it will run 5 at the same time.
