    VPN stads for "Virtual Private Network" and it basically creates a virtual (LAN-like) network where you can connect from one place to another through a tunnel, safe from hackers and eavesdroppers. It's primary purpose today among users is to stay anonymous, stay free of user-logs and to bypass geo-restrictions. Reference: ivacy.com/anonymous-vpn
