I keep wondering about if it would be wise to have a VPN as well as my current security with Bitdefender.

Do you have one?

Can they cause problems I'm not aware of?

I would be interested in any sensible comments.


Cheers.

I use one to watch the Wanderers away games on iFollow. Very useful for getting other shows that are unavailable in our own region too.
Bitdefender do their own VPN, but the better, and cheaper option is Freedome, from F-Secure.

Are there any drawbacks to having a VPN on all the time or do you just put it on  when it's needed for football or others things you wouldn't normally be able to watch in your own region?

You don't really want it on all the time. That can cause problems when using websites in the UK. If I'm out and about I use one on my phone set to London. I set it to Finland on my computer to watch away games.
Freedome lets you have a minimum of three licences, so pretty decent value.

I use Nord for same reason as Bonce, only chose that because I’m lazy and picked first one I saw. Could probably save some money. 

Worth it for a trip to Finland each week to watch the wanderers though.

Do you mean her home address? If so, no. The VPN simply changes your IP address and location, so just buy your VPN online with your normal details, and you're good to go.

Thanks Bonce, I don’t understand how VPNs work as I’m a tech Luddite but I’ll have a look. 👍

No worries. My brother is much the same. Mind you, he still struggles with texting.

Hello. A very interesting question. I think that it is needed. For sometimes you need access to prohibited sites for a specific location.

Perhaps the most famous courier used to rethink its portable application's advancement once upon a time. Presently we as a whole realize that Facebook possesses it, notwithstanding, before that occurred back in 2014, WhatsApp depended on seaward portable programming improvement and its advantages in general. As time elapsed by, their re-appropriated worker for hire turned into a super durable piece of the group and moved to the head office.Everyone knows this organization now, notwithstanding, years prior it was a little startup with around 60 individuals. It is rethinking that assisted them with acquiring the achievement they have now. Because of the way that they used to enlist a seaward versatile application improvement group, as cases the source, referenced above, they figured out how to fundamentally lessen their costs and reinvest them later
