All of you must have heard about the virtual private network. But there are still many people who do not know the advantages of VPN. They do not know how to use VPN on mobile phones. So in today’s post, I am going to explain to you the advantages and disadvantages of VPN.
So if you use the Internet, then you must know about VPN and sometimes use it.
What is VPN?
The full form of VPN is Virtual Private Network, with the help of which you can hide your identity or your IP address on the Internet.
With the help of a VPN, no one can find you in the world of the internet(There are some limitations), which country you are from, which state you are from, what is your IP address, no one can know if you use VPN.
If you search some such website, search something like this, then in such a situation, you should also use VPN. To use a VPN on a mobile or computer system, you need a VPN service. You can download it by searching the internet.
Advantages of VPN
The biggest advantage of using a VPN is that no hacker can track anything you. Your original IP address will remain hidden. For example, suppose if you use any VPN in mobile, then you can select any server location, that means if you are currently in India then you can select US server in VPN.
If any hacker tries to track you, then VPN will show your US IP address to the hacker. So he or she will not be able to know whether you are currently searching in India. They will think that you live in the US. In this case, the hacker will not be able to track your exact IP address.
The next biggest advantage of using VPN is that if there is a website, blog, or any app blocked in your country and you are not able to access that website but you want to access that website or app, Then you can use VPN on your mobile to access those websites or apps.
For this, you have to open the VPN and choose a server location of another country, after that you can easily access those blocked websites/apps in your own country.
VPNs like Nordvpn do not store any type of logs and hence they do not track those logs. They cannot see what you are searching for, what you download, etc. So nordVPN cannot give any data to any government as they themself do not store all that information.
But these types of VPNs are paid. If you use any free VPN, they may store all the above-mentioned data. If they want then they can sell all that data to any company if they offer you a good amount of money.
Even the government can access all that data. I am not against any free VPN service. I am just warning you. You can use free VPNs in banned apps to like using VPN while playing PUBG. But keep in mind that only give necessary permission to that VPN, not more than that.
So you see, how easily you can use a VPN on your mobile. So if you also want to hide your identity in the Internet world, then you can also use VPN.
