How does it work?

A VPN, or virtual private network, creates a connection between your computer and one of our servers, which are located around the world.
You are able to hide your IP address and your actual location, displaying instead one of our IP addresses and a virtual location of anywhere that we have a server. Websites that you visit won't see your real IP address or your location; they'll see a false IP address and location and your ISP will only see the encrypted information.
