What does a VPN do?

A VPN uses networking and encryption technology to give you a safe passageway onto the Internet without fear of being hacked or having your information spied on or stolen.

When the VPN is established, you type in your web requests as you would in a normal situation, but your requests are first sent to the remote computer. They are decrypted there and assigned an IP address from the country the remote server exists in.

Your requests are then sent to the Internet along with the new IP address. For a website such as MNCT in Indonesia, its security will seek out the identification of the incoming request. When it sees the IP address is also located in Indonesia, it will allow the request to reach the website where you can being selecting what programs you wish to stream. The programs you stream will first head for the remote server. It will take these data packets and encrypt them, sending them through the secure tunnel back to your Internet device. There they will be decrypted.
