Most of us often use virtual private network (VPN) service on our laptops or smartphones. But cybercriminals are also willing to take advantage of it, and that is why the service can now be discontinued in India. The Standing Committee of Parliament attached to the Ministry of Home Affairs has recommended to the Central Government to discontinue VPN service as it threatens to increase cybercrime.
According to reports, cybercriminals live online in secret through VPNs, making it difficult to locate their location. Keeping this in mind, it has been recommended by the Parliamentary Committee that a mechanism should be adopted with the help of international agencies so that these VPN services can be completely banned. There is no date fixed at the moment but after the recommendation, it can be assumed that the government may take any steps in this direction soon.
What is VPN?
VPN is a service through which a user can link with a public internet connection through his private network. Through VPN you can connect your smartphone or laptop to another VPN server. In the meantime, when you do some searches, it looks at your visited sites just like your phone or laptop server.
What will be the effect of banning?
