Why you want a VPN
While Streaming online, your IP will be displayed instantly. So ISPs (Internet Service Providers), app developers, government agencies, and hackers can track your online activities efficiently. You may encounter some legal difficulties if you have streamed any copyrighted content. To avoid these problems, we suggest you use VPN (Virtual Private Network). A great VPN provides you to hide your real identity by switching your IP to various locations.
VPN is also effective in locating geo-restricted media. Some apps/services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, and more are geo-restricted in several countries. To avoid those limitations, you want to install a VPN on your device.
