Frequently asked questions
What is an example of a private network?
A corporate network is a more elaborate version of a home network. But to facilitate hundreds of employee devices and prevent third-party device access, it goes far beyond than a secure network password. Similarly, an intranet is a private network used to share information and access company resources securely.
While Meshnet is also a private network, it differs from a home or corporate network. To put it simply, Meshnet is a network of private networks you can use to reroute traffic, connect to devices remotely, and share files.
