"VPN" Services for browsing anonymously

How you will feel when you come to know someone spying on you ,what you do online....what sites you visit...keeping  track of  all your  web history....!!!It will certainly hit you back...so today  I am going to discuss about VPN services  and tell how   you can hide yourself while  browsing.

What is VPN?

VPN(Virtual Private Network)  establish an extremely secure and private connection between you and the network to which you are connecting....it also  protects your network from being intercepted by creating a virtual tunnel but these are mainly used for anonymous purposes as  you can hide your web activities from your ISP.Data here is encrypted  by  public key encryption &  symmetric key encryption so it is quite secure and  at the same time user friendly. 

VPN vs Proxy  which one is better  and why?

As i have talked about proxy in detail in one of my post so i will just touch fews points here.Proxies are also used for surfing anonymously but  but it does not encrypt the source and destination address rather it acts like a filter.Here the whole connection is not made private  but proxy functionalities are applied to few software and browsers where it is  configured .

But VPN is more secure and user friendly compared to proxy.It makes the whole connection private rather than  concentrating of  particular applications as in proxy.So, i feel VPN is a better option compared to proxy but if one is planting an attack so he/she has to use  both proxy and VPN for it.

Here I am going to list out few of the VPN services available online.

1.CyberGhost:It is not a free VPN but has a free bandwidth limit upto 10GB for one month and there are paid services for registered users also,since it is a German based website so all the servers are aslo of Germany.
