According to Global Web Index, Indonesia
, India, and Turkey are the top countries for virtual private network use when compared to each countries’ total number of internet users. Out of all internet users worldwide, Asia-Pacific is the region home to the most frequent VPN users, followed by Latin America
, and the Middle East. Europe and North America use VPNs the least when compared to all internet users in those regions.
Virtual private networks connect a user’s device to a remote server, obscuring the location which the user is in. The VPN takes on the IP address of the server instead of the location of the person. VPNs create a secure, private connection between a user and server.
