Wikipedia wrote:A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across a VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.

VPN often used for people working from home to have access to company files. I use one for such, but there are some non-work uses within the house as well.

No, I certainly don't use one for FT though!

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network
it works by a remote server which gives you a random IP address and could potentially show you logging in from Timbuctu rather than from Reduce Speed, Kansas, then next login from Outer Mongolia

Lol. I don't need a VPN for that. My net provider uses a rotating (dynamic) IP system that does it automatically, whether i want it to or not. As I recall, it caused some fuss in the past with my own and another player's accounts overlapping. Since then, I have used a VPN on occasion when visiting "Kansas", as you put it, but not for any nefarious purposes. If using a VPN can really cause so many issues, I will PM you with a small bit of info that will be a task in itself, but may help.
