A VPN server encrypts and decrypts data that it receives from the VPN client that you have installed on your device. The server is the intermediary through which your data passes on to the web. This is the main component of the encrypted tunnel that VPN services use to secure your traffic and give you access to restricted content.

Setting up and managing a VPN server required purchasing equipment and maintaining the firewalls and security protocols that enable its security features. It is easier to purchase a good VPN subscription from a VPN service provider such as Obscured. This saves you money investing in a private network.
