How to Know if Your Computer Uses VPN Software

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are becoming more and more popular. Basically, a VPN lets you connect to another device (e.g., a server) and use it as if you were actually connected to that device. For example, you can use a VPN to connect to a website that’s blocked in your country—allowing you to perform certain tasks (e.g., look up products or order items) that you might not otherwise be able to perform from your current location.

To fully understand what a VPN is and how it works, you first need to know a few terms.
