Are there special uses of VPN?

Working remote seems like a good thing. I am new to it albeit it seems lots of developers are already doing it. I have been giving all the network, username, and password information and I am told that I can "HTML5 VPN Portal (any browser)" ... whatever that means. Please tell me whatever that means !! How is this done? So far all I know about VPN is that it is a bit of software I can use to mask my location. Apparently it has more than one meeting.

I suspect there is a common use of VPN or maybe others on the team are calling "VPN" something else. I now there is a secure site login. Is this what this is?

Apart from using google or a search engine to look up an answer to this, I feel a sense of urgency to engage in social media and web forums for an answer. This seems like a bit of fuzzy logic needs to be used to get a grasp of this and to get an answer. I am guessing that maybe something else is being used instead of VPN and I suspect there is some human error involved in describing this to me.

What I have tried:

All I know is that A VPN is a classification of software to mask your true location. That is all I know so far. I am told that one can use HTML5 with a browser to use VNP to remote into a location. If that is so, how is it done?

this is only a secondary effect.
VPN is Virtual Private Network, a tunnel. Virtual private network - Wikipedia[^]
VPN is basically an encrypted link between 2 computers or networks, encrypted means nobody can understand what is the data exchanged between both endpoints.
It look like: Your Computer <==> VPN <==> server
What is publicly sold as a VPN to mask your address is another thing: Computer <==> VPN <==> server <==> anonymiser service
The anonymiser service is the one pretending you are from another place.
