A VPN is known as a virtual private network. In this network, a group of computers are linked together. The goal of the VPN is to share files and folders securely and anonymously over the network. Since no physical connections are made to connect a specific group of computers, it is called Virtually Private. You can use a VPN to connect to the internet.
