What is a VPN server?
To understand what a VPN server is, it's important to know that your outbound and inbound traffic all goes through your ISP (internet service provider). This means that your ISP, 3rd party agencies, governmental entities, and potentially cybercriminals can see your traffic in plain text and the whereabouts of your requests.
A VPN server is a physical piece of hardware similar to a computer that is configured to supply an encrypted channel to users connecting them to the internet. The servers are a combined VPN hardware and software which changes the user's IP address to that of the country they are connected to.
Your traffic will channel through your ISP, but they won't' know what the contents of your requests nor where it's going because of the end-to-end encryption. Even if marketing agencies with targeted cookies, governmental entities, and cybercriminals try to intercept your data, they can't because of the encryption.
SwoshsVPN does not collect any activity logs or connection logs from users.
