    I am a business traveler and need to travel around the world. I can’t open my email in another country. It will give a proxy error if I try to open it.

    My cousin also travels, and she gave me the advice to use VPN for opening emails. I don’t know what it is and how to use it? 

    Can somebody explain it in the natural language?

    Hello Lenore,

    You are absolutely right about emails. Email servers save last login information of the user. So, if you are going to change the country it won’t let you log in. Email server security is very strict on this.

    Server security understands someone like an anomalous person trying to open your email from a different country, also possible it may disable your account.

    Your cousin is right also possible she is using VPN for accessing her emails in different countries. You can easily access your emails through VPN service. Now let me explain to you about VPN service.

    VPN is called a virtual private network. It creates a private network as you like. If you want a network from the UK or USA, it will change your recent ip into a specific country.

    There are lots of VPN service providers which have different country ip network. They can easily connect your pc or mobile with that country network. Once it will connect open your email and it would also not show you any proxy error.

    You can get some free VPN server but they are not safe for use. It is highly possible either your data or password may also hack. You can use paid VPN networks. They are reliable and safe.

    VPN provides you a temporary ip address. The IP address may from any country and state. Some VPN provider exchanges your IP with someone else also some gives a new one.

    New IP address VPN providers charge for the service. If you are going to use VPN for any private work, I will suggest you use paid VPN service otherwise free VPN can also use only for research.

    In this future technology, everyone wants to make money as much can. People are doing business from one country to another country. It is not possible to present every country they are doing business. Here comes a VPN.

    VPN helps to give you a network environment just like the same country. Assume you are an online seller and want to sell your products in the USA from the UK. You don’t know what people search online about your product category. It is not a good idea to go there in the USA and explore what people are finding on the INTERNET.

    Any business depends upon product requirements. Now imagine you are in the UK at your home and in your computer getting a result of USA search. Yes, it is possible with the help of VPN.

    VPN works on shared IP addresses. Once you do turn on the VPN, it will connect with the VPN server with your IP. In the VPN server just like you, people are finding different country IP address. The VPN server will share your IP address with different people just like you.

    VPN ServerOne thing needs to mark, IP address information will hide completely. You can’t find to whom you are using the internet from the USA. Everything is now a VPN server, and the VPN server is just like an ocean of IP addresses.

    Above answers has described nicely about VPN. As the name VPN(a virtual private network) states, it creates your personal or private network system. This own network hides everything from worldwide.

    Lots of hackers use this service for hiding himself or herself. So, I would like to suggest you be away from using a VPN service; it might affect your privacy also. If you have to use a VPN for some good work, go with trusty network partner and paid VPN.
