VPN stands for a Virtual Private Network. It's a service that provides you a secure encrypted connection to other computers on the internet, some VPN services also provide anonymity when connecting to servers and other computers online. If you do not connect to the internet via VPN, all information coming out of your computer, including your IP address, is open to whoever wants to access them.
Your privacy is a fundamental Human Right as recognized by the United Nations, it is non-negotiable, it is your right and a VPN connection helps you preserve it.
With a VPN whatever you do online is transfered encrypted:
With a VPN connection no outside entity, no corporation, government or even your internet service provider, can spy on you. In addition, your connection is secured even when using public Wi-Fi spots, which is especially important if you use online banking, transfer sensitive data during that time, or even bypass privacy-invading firewall rules which could be used to censor or monitor your access to certain websites by a local network administrator.
Most of all, your connection is always secured so your personal information, including your IP address, is never revealed.
You have to sign up for a VPN service and obtain a username and password for authentication. You then download and install a very tiny piece of software or an app that, upon a sign in, lets you choose a location of where you want to connect to. Your device then connects to servers in that location and those servers then pass on the connection to wherever you wanted to go. Your destination website will see your connection as coming from the VPN servers and your identity will not be revealed. More here.
FrostWire, both for Android and for Desktop, works seamlessly with most VPN services. This means that however you connect to the internet - with or without the VPN - FrostWire will still search and download without any adjustment in settings on your part.
