While VPN technology is complex, in a simple explanation, a VPN relocates your internet access point from your current location
(e.g., home, cafe...etc.) to a different server location of your choosing. So by routing your internet connection through
a VPN server, when you transmit data - it comes from the VPN server rather than your computer. This is why your IP address
is not exposed. Finally, the data transmission to the VPN and out of the VPN is encrypted.
