What is a VPN?

A virtual private network (VPN) gives you online privacy and anonymity by masking your internet protocol (IP) address so your online actions are virtually untraceable.

What's the difference between a VPN and a Proxy?

A VPN secures all your network traffic, while a proxy works on an application level. They both hide your IP address, but only a VPN redirects your internet data through an encrypted tunnel.
