Hello Yan! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed network professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

Yes, that is correct. VPN allows you to spoof your physical location, i.e., your IP address is replaced by your VPN provider. The functions of VPN are to spoof your IP address, and to encrypt the data that is sent from your computer.

Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you.
