Use cases of a VPN

- Access to a work network while traveling. VPN's are frequently used by professionals that travel and need to access to their work network while they are away.

Hides navigation data. In case you are using a public Wi-Fi, let's say, the ones that are without password in restaurant or malls, everything you visit with no https connection, will be visible to anyone who has some knowledge. But with a VPN, they will only see the VPN connection, everything else will be anonymous.

- Enter sites with regional restrictions. Usually, some regional restrictions need you to be in EEUU. This happens with Hulu, Pandora or even the Netflix catalog which is bigger and more complete in this country. Sometimes it happens with some YouTube videos. To avoid this, you just need to set your VPN to a USA location.
