What is a TAP adapter?

Install a VPN on any desktop and chances are you’ll soon be seeing the term ‘TAP adapter’. It might turn up in your app settings, your installed programs list, the Start menu, status or error messages and VPN logs.

If your VPN is working fine then there’s no immediate need to dig into the details. You can safely ignore all this TAP talk and get on with your regular internet life.
