VPN

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a secure connection between a device and a server that allows a user to browse the internet anonymously.

What is a VPN?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a secure connection between a device and a server. The connection allows a user to browse the internet anonymously. Without a VPN, internet activity can be intercepted and viewed by others.

VPNs can be used to bypass location restrictions, protect privacy, and encrypt data while surfing the web. They are often used for booking hotels and flights, streaming content that is unavailable in certain countries, and remote working.

How does a VPN work?

A device’s IP address makes it easily traceable. When connected to a VPN, the IP address is masked. VPNs can be compared to tunnels between two devices that allow websites to be accessed privately. Internet traffic appears to come from the VPN server rather than the device being used.

How do VPNs impact your webinars?

VPNs can block the ability to access webinar software. Webinar organizers should always check the software’s technical requirements to make sure this isn’t the case. The best webinar software will let users run connection teststhat troubleshoot any potential issues that could impact connection.
