What is a VPN client?

A VPN client is an application used to connect a device to a VPN server. VPN clients can be run on desktops, mobile devices, game consoles, streaming media devices, and routers. VPN clients typically run natively on a device, meaning they are not web-based nor do they operate on top of any other software other than the operating system.

How does a VPN client work?

A VPN client allows the user to choose the server location and often the protocol used, among other settings.
