The abbreviation VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Behind this is a technology in which protected content can be accessed from private networks regardless of location. VPN encrypts Internet connections in such a way that the transmitted information can not be viewed by third parties.
Reasons to use VPN connections include access to censored content, as well as the ability to share content with a specific group of people, such as free access to actual paid files for students.
