Hide your real IP address from sniffers2 min read
Attacks on online privacy are increasing all over the world these days. ISPs, advertisers, and governments integrate a high-powered data monitoring, to control online activity of their citizens. There are also numerous cyber criminals, who are seeking out the ways to get access to users’ personal information for manipulations.
Usually, an IP address serves them as an entry point to a user’s location, web traffic, or even their identity. Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a barrier on their way to disclose the user’s real IP address and other vulnerable data.
What is IP address?
IP address or Internet Protocol address is a unique number given to a device, like a computer, a laptop, and a smartphone. It works similar to a mailing address and is used to identify a device on any network. In order for you to get today’s weather forecast or check the latest news, your IP address is needed. Without it, websites and services wouldn’t know where to send the requested information. It means that your real IP address is open to everyone, who is interested in it. Cyber criminals can jump at this opportunity, and get the access to your sensitive information.
How to get a virtual IP address?
