A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, offers a secure way to connect to the internet. Corporate VPN, also known as remote access VPN, lets an off-campus employee securely connect to the private corporate intranet while offsite. The second type of VPN is the consumer VPN, which is the variety that most folks think of these days when the term VPN is mentioned. With a consumer VPN, the user is connected to the private network via an encrypted tunnel, keeping the user’s activities more anonymous and secure. The ISP cannot see the data transferred, but only that the user is connected to a private server. Consumer VPNs have many uses contributing to their current popularity. The most common ones include anonymity from ISP tracking, greater security while using public Wi-Fi hotspots, obtaining access to geo-blocked websites, and getting around country-specific internet censorship.
