In the notification area of the taskbar, click on the network icon, then Network and Internet settings, and select the VPN category from the left-hand column. Clicking on the Set up a new VPN connection button will bring up a window with the same name.
The acronym VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It is a network technology that uses the internet to connect computers and keep the data between them secure.
In a typical scenario, when you connect to the internet and browse websites, download materials and send documents by email, your device is identified by its IP number, and much of your data (excluding the most sensitive) travel openly and can be intercepted by providers or malicious software. With a private network, data is encrypted, the user is protected, and cannot be easily identified.
This technology is used by people who mainly want to ensure navigation privacy and restricted access content.
