I am in a country where most of the VOIP sites (skype) and other adult content sites are blocked by our internet provider. My friend offered me to use a proxy so that I can freely access any sites of any content. But I refused. I was afraid our internet provider can detect this proxy. I might end up in jail. Moreover, I am only using a NETWORK connection. Please help me.
What is a VPN?
VPN is (Virtual Private Network) were first used by companies to enable their employees to securely access internal systems such as email remotely (e.g. from home or while on business trips). Today they are increasingly being used for personal use by individuals to protect their privacy while online in public places (e.g. when using the wi-fi connection in a cafe) or in a country where the internet is censored / blocked (e.g. China, Saudi Arabia).
