What is VPN and How Does it Works, Benefits & How to use it

Welcome to whiteboard programming, where we
simplify programming with easy to understand whiteboard videos and today I'll be sharing with
you what is a vpn, why you should have one and how to use it, so lets get started! In simple terms, a VPN connects your PC, smartphone,
or tablet to another computer (called a server) somewhere on the internet, and allows you
to browse the internet using that computer’s internet connection. So if that server is in a different country,
it will appear as if you belong from that country on the internet, and you can potentially access
things that you could not normally access from your current location.

So how is using a VPN benefit to you? Good question! Well, You can use a VPN to: – Bypass geographic restrictions on websites
or streaming audio and video – Watch more of your streaming media like
Netflix and Hulu – Protect yourself from snooping on untrustworthy
Wi-Fi hotspots – Gain some anonymity online by hiding your
true location & IP address – Protect yourself from being logged while
torrenting The encryption and anonymity that a VPN provides
helps protect your online activities: sending emails, shopping online, or paying bills,
etc. Continuing on, you must be wondering, How does a VPN Work? So, when you browse the web while connected to
a VPN, your computer contacts the website through the encrypted VPN connection. The VPN forwards the request for you and forwards
the response from the website back through the secure connection. Because your computer behaves as if it’s
on the network, this allows you to securely access local network resources even when you’re not
on the other side of the world.

So, you must be wondering by now, which VPN
service to use? Well, I persoanlly have used a few and will
suggest using ExpressVPN, Nord vpn and surfshark, all of them have free trials, so you can easily
get your money back if in case you change your mind and I'm providing links to each in the description
below, so be sure to check them out. Now, let's learn how to use a VPN, I'll be
demonstrating Express Vpn, as i personally use it on almost a daily basis, First, Download & install your VPN app from
their official website Next, You need to Connect to a VPN server
location and to do so, click the On Button. By default, ExpressVPN will suggest the location
that provides the optimal experience for you based on your location called as Smart Location. Once your selection is done, wait for the
Connected message to show on the app screen, once you see it, you can begin surfing with
freedom and security! lastly, To disconnect from the VPN server
location, click the On Button while the VPN is on and you'll be back to normal With that, I hope this video was helpful to
you and served value.
