With a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you create an encrypted tunnel between your computer and a remote server. This means that you:
- Hide your internet activity from your ISP (and anyone else who’s watching)
- Hide your “real” IP address (your IP on the internet appears to be that of the VPN server instead).
VPNs are therefore good for:
- Evading blanket government surveillance
- Watching geo-restricted streaming services such as Hulu and BBC iPlayer from abroad
- Protecting your Wi-Fi connection when using public hotspots
- Evading censorship (both government or at school, and so on)
- Protecting you when P2P downloading.
