How VPN Works?

VPN works by creating a secure tunnel using powerful VPN protocols. It hides your IP address behind its own IP address that encrypts all your communication. Thus, your communication passes through a secure tunnel that allows you use network resources freely and secretly.

  • IP security (IPsec)
  • Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)
