When do I need a VPN and how do I use it
First of all, I want to give a few simple examples (life) when a VPN is necessary. Still, do not retell the theory — it will not always help you understand all the nuances…

Let's say you are sitting at work and you have an hour or two of free time to watch a new movie. But you know that the admin can see that some entertainment site has opened on your PC and... in this case, using a VPN-the admin will not "see" anything, because the connection will be encrypted (of course, that you used a VPN — he will know, but what exactly you are viewing-no!;
This can also include various blockages. For example, your social network is blocked at work (or even in your country). VK network, to open it-just any VPN service;
If you travel a lot and work often in cafes, airports, and other places with a public Wi-Fi network, then a VPN will help you keep your passwords, usernames, and other personal data secret. Without a VPN, your connection is not encrypted in any way, and an experienced hacker can easily get your plastic card data (if, for example, you decide to pay for something over the network…);
You don't want your provider or anyone else to know what sites you visit, what you do online, and so on.

VPN replaces your real IP with a fake one, for example, Italian or Dutch. If you use a VPN, then you are practically invisible on the network. You go to the site and see that you are not from Russia, for example, but from Germany. Due to this, no website blocking

Different protocols are used to set up a VPN network, and some of them are more secure than others. Large VPN providers offer users several protocols to choose from and explain what each of them is suitable for .
It is not necessary to delve into these nuances. OpenVPN is enough for everyday Internet surfing. This technology is open source, regularly passes public security audits , and is developed by a community of developers interested in reliability. If you don't know exactly what Protocol you need, then choose a VPN service that supports OpenVPN.

Striving for privacy and security, you may want to browse the Internet anonymously. The VPN creates an encrypted tunnel between your computer and servers so that you can act on the network (visit the necessary websites, perform Internet transactions, upload files) anonymously and your actions cannot be tracked or spied.

Having connected to the VPN server, we browse the Internet under the guise of the IP address and location of this server. With each new connection, our identification on the Internet switches to a new IP address hiding us under a new encryption mask

You need a service that allows you to use at least two parallel connections, practically speaking, with the ability to link your router to a VPN network.

To understand which service is the fastest, find out: Do they make throttling connections, limit bandwidth, or restrict services?

Bandwidth restrictions may not have been a big issue in the pre-streaming era, but now that everything is streaming: videos, music, games, and so on, Bandwidth is very important. Avoid VPNs that impose bandwidth restrictions.

When you want to use vpn for online streaming you should select a PPTP protocol because it is fastest speed due to low level of encryption. https://www.purevpn.com/what-is-vpn/protocols/pptp

Unblocks geo-restricted content 

Content providers around the world limit content access to specific locations due to the copyright issues. A website reads your IP address and identifies your location hence block content that is not allowed for your location. On the other hand, a VPN has the ability to mask your real IP address. It assigns you a new IP address from your selected server location. In this way, you can select your desired server location like France, USA ,UK Canada etc and access any content from a particular region.

Keeps you anonymous 

A trusted and paid VPN service always offers strong encryption features. With encryption, all your online data remains secure and hidden. No one can read or access it. In this way, a VPN keeps you anonymous and protects you against ISP throttling, government surveillance and any sort of unauthorized access.

These days, most people are working from home because of the COVID-19 crisis. A VPN is a top security tool for employees around the world.

I mainly use vpn to watch content of popular foreign websites. This helps me to visit iQiyi outside of China and Netflix, when I'm at home.
