My nieces got a hold of my phone during Sunday dinner.  They thought it was so funny to take pictures:

Not very private!

VPN’s are usually marketed towards giving you more privacy, but there’s more use to a VPN than privacy.

I recently wanted to watch an event being broadcast on the internet but it was blacklisted from the US. So I had to get a VPN in order to watch it.

I subscribed to NordVPN for 1 month. I installed the VPN on my phone. I connected to their VPN location in Switzerland. Once I was connected to Switzerland I connected to the event. The filter thought I was in Switzerland.

I was able to watch it and that was that. Super simple.

If you run into a problem where a VA can’t access a service you want them to use, you can get a VPN for them. There are lots of different VPNs you can use:

  • Mozilla VPN
  • CyberGhost
  • Nord VPN
  • Mullvad VPN
  • TunnelBear VPN
  • Proton VPN
  • IVPN
  • Private Internet Access
  • Hotspot Shield
  • ExpressVPN
  • Surfshark VPN
  • Windscribe
  • Strong VPN
  • HMA VPN
  • VyperVPN

Having your OFS connect to a USA IP address will almost always solve the issue of them not being able to access the service you want them to use.

Are you currently using a VPN? Have you done it in the past?
What have you used?
