Every network has a unique IP address to identify its location. When you open a website, it sees your IP and knows where your network is.
When you use a VPN, your connection is tunneled through another secure Network located somewhere in the physical world. Because of this, the website sees the location of the VPN network instead of your’s.
This comes in handy if you, for example, are in Germany and want to watch BBC. Simply connect via a VPN with a server in the UK and BBC will let you watch.
FREE VPN FOR DUMMIES is a VPN in the form of a browser extension. The extension is installed only in the browser itself and encrypts all data passing through the browser. It can, however, not protect data passing through other programs on your device.
In the top-corner of your browser window, you see the FREE VPN FOR DUMMIES icon. Click on it to open the VPN menu and follow the instructions in in the dropdown to continue.
FREE VPN FOR DUMMIES offers two VPN server locations, one in the US and one in the UK. Simply click on the connect button under the location switch to connect the VPN.
