To put it simply, yes, VPNs are legal in most countries around the world. Generally speaking, the law doesn’t punish those who use a VPN to surf the web through another IP (Internet Protocol) address.
In fact, many large companies employ the use of VPNs within their organizations. Why? So that can make sure their business-related communication is secured. Also, to ensure their company data is safe and sound as well.
However, it’s vital we make a clear distinction. Using a VPN is legal, but only if you use it within legal means. 
What does that mean? Well, you can’t use a VPN to take advantage of illegal activities – that can actually land you in jail.
