A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a service that allows you to create a secure internet connection to another network. This secure connection creates an encrypted tunnel for your data and protects online activity by hiding your IP address.
A VPN routes your device's internet connection through a private service rather than your regular internet service provider (ISP). In such a way, the VPN acts as an intermediary between your device and internet resources.
Basically, there are three types of VPNs—remote access, intranet-based site-to-site, and extranet-based site-to-site. Remote access VPNs are most famous for individual users, while companies prefer site-to-site VPNs for corporate purposes.

Depending on your needs, used device, and browsed online resources, a wide range of VPNs is available on the market.
