What is a VPN and which is the best?
Good morning dear readers of Tecnogalaxy, today I will clarify the ideas on VPN and I will tell you which is the best that is in circulation according to our opinion.
What is a VPN?
A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to create a secure connection to another network via the Internet. When you activate a VPN, it sends web traffic through an encrypted tunnel to a server controlled by the VPN company, from there it arrives on the web as usual and then returns to you by the opposite route.
If you still don’t understand, I’ll explain it in a more practical way: If your car rolls out of your driveway, someone can follow you and see where you are going, how long you are at your destination and when you come back. They may also be able to peek inside your car and learn more about you. On the other hand, with a VPN, it is as if you are driving from your home into an underground tunnel, in a closed garage, you pass to another car and leave.
Why do i need to use a VPN? Great question! Here’s what you can do with it:
- Bypass geo-restrictions on websites or audio and video streaming;
- Watch streaming movies on banned platforms in our nation, such as Netflix;
- Protect yourself from untrusted Wi-Fi hotspots or those created to steal your credentials (MITM);
- Earn at least some online anonymity by hiding your true position (even maximum anonymity by choosing an excellent service);
- A VPN can sometimes even improve the connection since the response to the server will be a super gigabit in the most advanced states;
These are some of the reasons you need to have a VPN.
What’s the best VPN?
The best service on the market right now is Nord VPN. It has tons of very reliable servers. It has 5496 servers in 59 countries and in different cities). I personally have subscribed to this service for 4 years and I think it is the best of all, beating other services in all fields.
How does Nord VPN work and what sets it apart?
Nord VPN is a great online security solution, and used by over 14 million Internet users worldwide, here below I will show you some of their services offered:
- They offer a high level of encryption;
- Double protection, that is, your navigation goes through 2 servers;
- They even have a malware and ad blocker (CyberSec);
- They have p2p servers for sharing large files;
- Nord VPN follows a strict policy called “no log“: that is, they do not collect or store any logs of user activities;
- They also have an award-winning support team that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week;

- Another feature to mention is “mask your IP” which allows you not to be tracked everywhere;
- There are dedicated IP addresses, for example those for online purchases that are different from those that allow you to skip the boring CAPTCHA;
- They have dns leaks prevention systems as the device uses DNS servers managed directly by Nord VPN.
These are some of the many features they offer.
