VPN (Virtual private network) software is used primarily to provide users with anonymity while using the Internet, while being able to encrypt Internet traffic. These capabilities render governments, Internet service providers and even wireless network hackers unable to see what is going on inside a VPN or who is using it.

Using a VPN, all data traffic is confined to a private, encrypted tunnel until they reach the public Internet. Destinations cannot be accessed until after the end of the VPN tunnel is reached. VPN services are quite useful in workplaces, especially for those who use mobile devices in accessing data from a work server. However, the most common use of VPN software is to remain anonymous to ISPs, websites or governments. This is true for users who download files illegally, such as in the case of copyrighted torrent files.
