How Is My IP Address Hidden with a VPN?
When you go online, you share your IP address with every website you go to – search engines, news outlets, banking services…etc. The website sees your unique 7-digit code and can tell exactly who you are, where you are coming from, and can track what you are doing.
When you use a VPN, websites will see the IP address assigned to you by the VPN and not your actual IP. And most websites won’t even know that you changed your IP, they will just think you are a different user.
