VPN Provider Recommendation

First off, what is a VPN?

Diagram: Your internet with a VPN

 

A VPN in short, is pretty much a ‘tool’ which can protect your privacy & allow you to use the internet anonymously.

Using a VPN with Kodi is not really a requirement, as the third party addons in Kodi use standard HTTP protocols, and not torrents or P2P based streaming.

However, it may interest you to use a VPN in general, if you wish to protect your privacy – as a new law has been passed that allows your (Australian) Internet Service Provider to log and retain your metadata.

This is now known as the ‘Data Retention’ law. Please see the below comments from the Herald Sun regarding the new law:

Over time, your metadata will expose your private email, SMS and fixed-line caller traffic, consumer, work and professional activities and habits, showing the patterns of all your communications, your commercial transactions and monetised subscriptions or downloads, exactly who you communicate with, and how often.

There is however an interesting article on GIZMODO that you can read by clicking here.

It aims to show that the new law is not as scary as it seems, and there is nothing different about the past and the present with this new law, other than your Internet Service Provider having to hold the metadata logs for 2 years (where in the past, there was no requirement to hold the information).

The new law does not indicate logging a users web browsing history, so that’s good news.. Nevertheless, it is quite scary to know that there are eyes watching your every move, even in the privacy of your own home.

 

Main Benefits of using a VPN

Another advantage of using a VPN is that you can effectively ‘change’ your location to unlock geo-restricted content. For example, there may be some Free to Air Channels in Greece, Italy, UK etc which are freely available to watch via the Official sources. IPVANISH supports unlimited switching servers capabilities, so you can change your location in a tap of a button depending on the content you wish to watch. This also comes in handy for expats (people living abroad). Lets just say you are Australian, but have now moved to (example country) for work. Using a VPN, you can allow yourself to use ABC iView, 9now, 10Play & other aussie catchup / live content which is usually restricted to Australia. Using a VPN to bypass geo-restrictions is totally legal! This is how companies such as ‘GetFlix’ are able to operate and allow users from other countries to access the American version of Netflix.

Choosing the Best VPN provider:

If you’ve heard about VPN’s or read about them in the past, and are now looking to take that next step of using one – it’s very important to choose the right provider. I mean, what’s the purpose of using a VPN provider which logs traffic (including your web traffic), and can pass those details on to whoever requests them? So the first thing is to choose a provider which does not keep traffic logs. You also want to choose a provider who has FAST SERVERS (you need to be aware that using a VPN can slow down your internet, depending on which provider you choose. Free VPN’s are not recommended, for this reason, and others).

New VPN providers are popping up every day – but we’ve already made our choice, we think you should too.
