Hello, I've just can't decide what is more useful: to install VPN program on my laptop or just search for a VPN server online? I haven't used virtual networks never before.

System Configuration: Windows / Chrome 74.0.3729.169

Ok, well a VPN is a private connection to another network, so with that being said it will require a client, and a server. Your VPN provider will provide you the client, and a list of servers you can connect to, creating a TUNNEL through the internet to the server you have connected to. Then where ever that server is, it will provide the rest of the connection to what ever it is you are doing in the tunnel! So with that being said, your only choice is what provider, not how are you going to deploy it!!! You only have one option for deployment, unless you have a POP in your final destination!!!!

Thanks a lot, your advice was really of great help! Could you recommend a revutable VPN or something like that?
No, I cant do that. What I can say, is make certain what ever provider you have, has a fail over in case of VPN fail. Some providers do not do this, and will expose your ip when the vpn fails, and will not disconnect the connection.

Installing VPN software is the best option. VPN is used for security reasons and online VPN servers are not secure enough.
How does one install their own VPN software on the internet? This makes no sense, as there is no way to install your own VPN software at the other end!!!! Think about it!!!!!!!!!! You have to have an endpoint. How can you gain access to the endpoint if the resource on the other end isn't yours? That is why there are Online services that supply the VPN at both ends!!!!!

If you are talking about a client, and not using the browsing, I agree!
