Although there is quite a minor difference in the mobile application, the desktop extension showcases similar features as mobile.
In this article, we’ll discuss some of the user interface level differences in both versions, although it’s a short blog because the topic of discussion is very transparent.
The truth behind this term is very rigid and consistent. We’ll still discuss some of the most famous VPNs and their core functionalities on both mobile and desktop.
What is a VPN? How does it work?
Let’s understand the basic concept of VPN and its core working with backend features, strengthening the connection between users. It offers users a secure and protected network, where the IP address and physical address of the user are kept private and encapsulated.
The motive of users is to unblock geo-restricted websites and get full access to the website. Such as without a VPN you cannot access HBO Max in Australia or PBS outside USA and other streaming platforms and that all is because of geo-restrictions.
A proxy can perform this action too, but a VPN is still a secured option for fulfilling this activity with reasonable pricing packages.
A highly secured security layer, induced with AES-256 bit encryption, OpenVPN, L2TP, is there to make the connection more secure.
Moreover, suppose you want to learn more about the hacks and the trick of unblocking geo-restricted websites. In that case, RantEnt is the best option to read blogs related to accessing geo-restricted content.
