Here in this tutorial, you will learn how to setup a VPN on Windows 10 & android phones without any VPN application or VPN software. I will teach you how to configure manually VPN on your computer as well as on your android mobile without any VPN app or vpn computer software.

You can use a VPN on wifi network because I have personal experience with vpn on a wifi network. It doesn’t work if you use wifi network and installed any vpn application or software, you must configure it manually to use vpn.

Let’s dive into the tutorial!

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

The internet has a love affair with acronyms. Your ISP gives you an IP. So your computer can access the DNS via a URL coordinated by the ICANN. The reality is that the average internet user doesn’t understand all this and if you’re part of that group, don’t worry! It’s not critically important for you.

There is one acronym, however, that I believe every person who owns a computer should know: VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network.

What is a VPN? (Virtual Private Network)

A VPN, again a virtual private network, is a means to encrypt, or secure, your data to keep it safe and add a layer of privacy to protect your identity.

Why a VPN?

It seems like almost every week there’s a front-page news story about somebody’s email getting hacked, identities stolen or privacy exploited. Get used to it: this is our new reality.

It’s more important for us to secure our computers. Nowadays, it is important for us to lock our doors. If you’ve known anybody who has had their identity stolen, you know that it’s not a simple wipe and replace. It takes years, sometimes more than a decade to recover from identity theft.

So, what can you do to protect yourself? There are a number of measures you can take, such as updating your Facebook security settings or creating long, secure passwords, but one of the easiest things you can do today starts using a VPN.

It’s not foolproof and despite the marketing, I don’t believe we’re ever completely anonymous or totally safe on the internet, but it is the best step you can take to secure yourself online.

Why you Need a VPN? [Benefits of Using Virtual Private Network]

VPN or Virtual Private Network, to encrypt your internet connection and secure it from prying eyes. In this section, you will learn why you need a VPN or some major reasons in which you need vpn. Let’s dive!

1. Privacy

The first major benefit to a VPN is the privacy you have when using one. When you are connected through the VPN, websites cannot see your real IP address, only the IP of the VPN server. And because there are many people using the same server, you are effectively anonymous.

2. Open WiFi Hotspot

This is a very common situation where you should definitely use a VPN, which is when connecting to an open WiFi hotspot. If you weren’t aware, open Wi-Fi hotspots, meaning ones that don’t have a password to connect, do not encrypt the data being sent between your device and that hotspot.

So unless the websites you’re visiting are using HTTPS, you are literally broadcasting everything you’re doing for anyone to listen in on. Like I said before, when you connect through a VPN, everything is encrypted before it even leaves your computer, so it doesn’t matter if you’re on an open Wi-Fi hotspot, because your connection is made secure.

Now I’m not even just talking about your computer here though, because you might use public WiFi on your phone as well, and yes, it is possible to use a VPN on your phone.

3. Bypass Web Filters

Alright, the third reason is something I’m sure many of us can relate to, which is a VPN will allow you to bypass web filters that may be in place at your work, school, or university.

Now I’m NOT encouraging you to use this to waste time when you should be doing work, but there are definitely times when you have a legitimate reason to look something up on the internet, and the website is blocked for some reason.

And when you want to open a specific website that blocked on your real IP address than VPN will help out to unblock that website.

4. Bypass Location

Ok so now we have a fourth reason you should get a VPN, which is it can allow you to bypass location-based media restrictions in most cases. So for example, how many times have you gone to watch a YouTube video and it says it’s not available in your country?

And the same goes for Netflix which only has certain movies and shows available in certain countries. But it’s pretty easy. As you can imagine, you just need to choose a VPN server in a country where the website will allow that content.

5. Throttling

Ok, now a fifth reason you’d want to get a VPN is because of throttling from your internet service provider. Not all of them do this, but there are plenty of ISPs that will limit your connection based on what program or service you’re using at the time.

A very common example is a peer to peer downloading, such as with torrenting. I’d be willing to bet if you did a search for “Your ISP Name” and “Throttling”, there’s a good chance a lot will come up. With a VPN, all your data is put through the same encrypted tunnel, so your ISP will never know for sure what you’re doing at any time, so they can’t throttle anything. Keep in mind though, not all VPN services will allow peer to peer services.

  1. Helpful article.

    But it is not helping me.

    In your article you mention “select the type of your VPN connection”.

    How to determine that?

    In my case on Windows 10, I need to install a special desktop software – from F5 and it works in conjunction with a numeric OTP (one time password) generated on my smartphone.

    So would you have published a article for this scenario.

    thanks
