The role VPN is to hide the original IP address and connect it with some anonymous IP address. It can easily protect your internet surfing identity and make it undetectable for the IP provider to track you. The best part is that even the VPN provider can’t be aware of your original identity as all the network details are in encrypted form. But, they still have controls for knowing about your status—the VPN apps work by changing your location to other countries. There are various VPN apps available on the internet that provides both free and paid IP changing services. Thunder VPN is also one of them that provides the same service, but on the matter of trust, it keeps you safer from getting tracked.
