If you have been following my blog for a long time, you will undoubtedly know I love watching movies; it’s one of my favorite things to do in my free time! I always wanted to watch everything that was being released immediately so I subscribed to Hulu, HBO, and Netflix (I’ve cancelled my subscriptions with all except Netflix now). But as you know, with Netflix, for example, their list of movies and TV shows is constantly changing and sometimes what happens to be available on the UK Netflix isn’t available in the US – which is a bummer, what else do you think I would say? That’s why I’ve decided to invest in a good VPN, which allows me to stream all movies and TV shows from all the Netflix branches!
“What’s VPN and how does it do that?!”, I hear you ask
VPN stands for a virtual private network and it’s an online service that provides you with security and anonymity (I know it sounds shady, it will all make sense very soon). We’ve all witnessed many data leaks during our time using the internet (for instance, do you remember the Facebook data leak? Or Viber data leak?) and VPN stands to protect us, our private internet connections by hiding our data, our IP addresses – which allows us to be anonymous on the web. I don’t know if you knew this before, but IP addresses contain a large amount of data about us, they can reveal our geolocation easily, all of our PC data etc. However, with this option VPN offers, I can access all the different branches of Netflix – the servers don’t see my geolocation based on my IP address (as it’s hidden) and because of it, I can access any country’s Netflix.
What are some of the best VPN services of 2021?
· NordVPN – I’m sure you’ve seen almost every influencer or YouTuber advertise NordVPN, and in this case, I don’t mind it at all. NordVPN is one of the best VPN services not only of this year, but of previous years as well, as it is famous for being the best when it comes to encryption. When you activate it, your PC becomes hidden and you can rest assured that your data is secure. They offer 1, 2, and 3 year plans, and when you split it up by months, the subscription isn’t costly at all!
· ExpressVPN – Another great choice if you decide on getting a VPN is ExpressVPN. They are also considered to be one of the best VPN services of 2021 because they don’t only provide you with anonymity, but they work very fast as well. What’s better, the service itself does not keep your IP address or any data on you, so you can feel safe using it. Remember my love for movies? Well, with ExpressVPN you can safely Torrent your movies as well, not only stream them on random Netflix branches! The subscription lasts for a year and then you have to renew it, but it isn’t very costly either.
· PureVPN – If, however, you find the subscription rate of both previously mentioned VPNs to be too much for you, feel free to switch to PureVPN. You can both torrent and stream on Netflix with it, and its subscription can last from 1 week to 2 years!
