So... What is a VPN? How does it work?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, keeps your online activity private and secure.


I used to be pretty careless with online logins and passwords, but since having my identity stolen I really looked into staying safe online. Having a VPN gives me peace of mind when using the internet.
