A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a private computer network in which remote node on one network can appear on the private network by way to encrypted tunnelled connections.
It is commonly used as a security tool by businesses and organisations to allow remote secure connections, but can also be used by individual users in order to both mask their location and evade any restrictions or surveillance on the networks they connect through.
