There are lots of reasons to use a VPN. You may want your internet activities to be encrypted; you may want to be safer when surfing on public wifi hotspots; you may simply want to be sure that when you access certain websites your IP address can’t be traced.
For me, the main reason to use a VPN is to access web sites in other countries that block content because of my location. This is mostly the case for US sites, for services that don’t allow access to people outside the US.
For this reason, I jumped at the chance to grab a three-year subscription to VPN Unlimited for only $19. I had tried the service out a couple of months ago, but hadn’t yet decided to pony up the money, but at that price – three years for the price of one – you can’t beat it.
VPN Unlimited is easy to use, and offers servers in a number of countries. There are apps for all platforms: Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android.
So, next year, I’ll be able to watch the Tour de France on the French TV web feed instead of here in the UK, where there are 20 minutes of commercials an hour. That alone is worth the $19.
