How does a VPN work?
A VPN (virtual private network) is the easiest and most effective way for people to protect their internet traffic and hide their identities online. As you connect to a secure VPN server, your internet traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel that nobody can see into, including hackers, governments, and your internet service provider.
When you connect to a VPN server location, you are assigned a new IP address, and your true IP address is hidden. Because this new IP address is shared by many other ExpressVPN users, there is no way to connect you to any activity. This helps keep you anonymous online.
