Off topic: VPN

Thinking of buying/subscribing a VPN. Anybody using them?
Any recommendations?
Cheers.

Express is good as mentioned. Get them before you leave to a place like China or Iran. Once in the country, it can be hard to access VPN Services unless you're using VPN to begin with.

My issues here that the government here do block it and then the VPN providers have to find a way around it. Most of the time it's not a problem.

I have Nord and it's useless for streaming from my experience. Way too slow.

Don't really want to fork out for expressvpn as wel but I've heard now that it's much better

People that torrent or stream without a VPN can be caught as when you download stuff, your IP address shows up. Anyone can use your IP to locate you really.
A VPN makes it appear as if you're downloading/connecting from another location.

Also Netflix, im not 100% sure but i dont think you can connect to UK netflix when abroad, although I've never tried it.

Then again with GPDR.... Your IP address should no longer be used as a means to identify you.....
Hmmm

You're correct, for now it's the only way to open up the ability to stream content that isn't shown in your region.

That includes streaming sites and blocked sites (in China that bit is particularly important)

Could use the hula chrome plug in for Netflix.

Yeah I figured as much, suspect though if anyone really wanted to trace you, they could, despite vpn.

I use Windscribe and it's been perfect. Get 10gb free a month or can pay for more.

I'm tight as cramp so make the 10gb last.
