What does VPN stand for?

What does VPN stand for?

  • Virtual Private Network
  • Very Private Network
  • Virtual Private Netconnection
  • Virtual Privacy Network 


A virtual private network extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running on a computing device, e.g., a laptop, desktop, smartphone, across a VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network. Encryption is a common, though not an inherent, part of a VPN connection. VPN technology was developed to allow remote users and branch offices to access corporate applications and resources.
