We have a user that their tech wants to creat a VPN Fortinet in his computer for the purpose of accessing the office server.  He usually used to use TeamViewer but this time the tech is gonna install some sort of VPN.  The concern the user has is his personal data in his computer if by creating the VPN it can have some sort of breach or that his activity can be monitor etc.  We have informed him that there is no way and the VPN is just to secure connection between his pc and the server (but since he has been reading all about these crybaby etc. and the tech of his office is outsource he wanted to be sure).  The said, is his concerned viable? What does setting a VPN between 2 computer technically consiste of?
