It is specifically designed to protect users from censorship, snooping and interference. They can be extremely useful especially if you need to use WiFi hotspots in public places and if you need to unlock services that are blocked from your real location.
To use VPN, one must sign up for the service. Many companies that offer VPN services have three tiers depending on how long you want to commit for. Once the sign up process is completed, the user will need to download and install the app to their computer.
