    VPN is an encryption program that will "tunnel you to" the website of choice with 128 bit encryption.

    that prevents hackers from monitoring you in "real time"
    they can record the traffic, and use a Cray computer to maybe break what you type in about 12 years or so.

    Google VPN and read what Wikipedia says

    VPN or Virtual Private Network is a method used to increase the security and privacy of public and private networks, such as Wi-Fi and internet connection. VPNs are most often used by companies to protect sensitive data. However, using a personal VPN is becoming increasingly popular as more interactions that were previously face-to-face transition to the Internet. VPN protection increases as the user's IP address is replaced with one of the providers VPN. This method allows subscribers to reach IP address from any gateway city the VPN service provides.

    Well Opera Max is a VPN app, and data compressor as well, to try and reduce the amount of wireless data you use.

    A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a method used to add security and privacy to private and public networks, like WiFi Hotspots and the Internet. VPNs are most often used by corporations to protect sensitive data. VPN can also be work for other uses like in china streaming channels and social websites are Geo-restricted so you can use VPN to unblock anything.
