Explanation: Stealth VPN

Stealth VPN (also known as obfuscation and VPN masking) is a technique used to make VPN traffic appear as regular internet traffic, thereby disguising the fact that a VPN is being used. This is useful in situations where your ISP, network, or government is actively trying to block VPN traffic.

A common misconception is that it makes your VPN traffic invisible to websites or streaming services. That is not the case, as the VPN address you're assigned would still belong to a VPN server. It only further disguises the VPN traffic between you and the VPN server, making it more inconspicuous and less likely to be blocked before it reaches the VPN server.

Stealth VPN does not work in combination with Split Tunneling.
