Use resources that are blocked regionally or by law? Need reliable, completely anonymous surfing? Read our article - we prepared a lot of useful information on the subject we are discussing today.

What is VPN? - It is an acronym for Virtual Private Network, which literally means "virtual private network". In fact we are talking about servers that allow you to hide your network activity by changing your IP address. This unique technology provides an encrypted connection that keeps your personal data (what web sites you visit, what you download, what passwords you enter, and so on) with you. Believe me, in these times of digitization of society and increasing level of hacking skills, stealing financial information and gaining access to important documents is easy! Scared?

Till quite recently such services were installed separately on each electronic device, i.e. the program was downloaded on the PC, then on the smartphone and other mobile gadgets. It was inconvenient, sometimes unprofitable and expensive (if the software is paid). But time passed, the developers of modern VPN applications did not doze off, and developed and improved new methods to protect networks as a whole, comprehensively. So the software for routers appeared.
