VPN technology was developed over 20 years ago as a tool for creating an encrypted private network on top of a public network (the Internet). This is necessary to create an analog of a local network via the Internet. People and devices that are not physically located in one place can use the same network. Over time, this technology found a different application - people hid their real location using VPN. To do this, they set up a standard VPN server with traffic routing to the Internet. 20 years have passed and now we have an enormous amount of VPN services that implement this scheme. How to choose from such a variety? We will help you with this!

If the service is needed occasionally, or it is required for minor actions, then sometimes you can just get by with a trial subscription or purchase a subscription for a short term.
