VPN deals: what you can do with a VPN
There are loooooads of VPN uses. Virtual Private Networks allow bypass geo-restricted content. So if you wanted to watch a Netflix show that is geo-restricted to a location, a VPN changes your IP address so your device gets tricked into thinking its in a different location. Make sure to check out our Netflix VPN guide if your primary reason for a VPN is streaming, while they’re also brilliant for letting you watch sport and shows that are only available overseas.
Some people will be more concerned about the fact VPNs help you browse the internet securely. A VPN uses encryption technology that basically means you’re browsing and activity will be anonymous. So if you’re worried about your cyber security, a VPN is definitely the way to go.
Beyond that, they help get around blocked websites and apps in countries that ban them, assist in secure online banking and shopping (especially on public Wi-Fi) and have even been known to get around broadband bandwidth throttling and bag cheaper flights on comparison sites, too.
