How To Use a VPN

It’s very straight-forward to start using VPN. All you need to do is create free Unlocator trial and then download one of the VPN apps for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows.

VPN apps

Once installed it’s a matter of connecting to a VPN server of your choice. From that moment on your real location is hidden and your data connection has become encrypted. You can now use the Internet knowing that your real IP is hidden and your private data can’t be intercepted by anyone.

Any website that you connect to will think you are now located in the origin country of the VPN server you have connected to. If for an instance you have selected one of the US servers in the app then you can access any US website or streaming service as if you were located in the US – even if you are abroad.

So whether you are interested in protecting your privacy, unblocking websites, bypassing censorship or simply securing your Internet connection then VPN is the tool to use.
