If you’re in school, whether high school, middle school, or even college, you might have trouble accessing streaming content on Twitch.tv. The reason being is that your school’s internet department doesn’t want you wasting their bandwidth or your time at school watching media content on their computers. This is understandable, but as a student, I understand your pain. Sometimes you just need a bre...[Read More]
Staying private online is becoming more and more of a concern. In the US, President Trump essentially gave complete power to ISPs to monitor traffic, shape bandwidth, or even change plans based on what website you want to visit or the speeds that you need for specific services. Imagine if you have Comcast, and your speeds to Netflix are automatically slowed since Comcast is partnered with Hulu. I...[Read More]
Roku is one of the easiest and best ways to watch content on your TV. Believe me, I just got an awesome Roku-enabled TV and I love the simplicity of having pre-installed apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video and more. However, depending on where you live in the world, you might find that you can’t access the best content that you want. Maybe you live in Australia and you have a Roku TV or a ...[Read More]
Free VPN often feels like a myth, with “free VPN providers” offering only trial services that act as a real VPN offering. These “free VPNs” come with huge limits on torrenting, bandwidth, and servers allowed for use. Two VPNs commonly associated with the term “free VPN” are Tunnelbear and more recently Windscribe VPN. Are these VPNs worth using? While we don’t agree with Windscribe’s deceptive mar...[Read More]
Ivacy VPN is marketed as a one size fits all solution. But does it really have the best pricing, speeds, usability, and application performance out there?
Good / IvacyVPN implements robust security protocols that protect your data, allows five different connections at the same time, lets you pay with a wide array of methods including several cryptocurrencies, can connect you to 50 countries, and has exciting features, such as a killswitch, split tunneling and the ability to stream Netflix. Bad / IvacyVPN is a bit lacking when it comes to settings an...[Read More]
LiquidVPN is a US based VPN that started in 2013. The VPN's main "gimmick" is a modulated IP which lets the service scramble IPs of customers. Is this VPN that special, however, making it worth a purchase?
Good / LiquidVPN has serviceable speeds, a working app, and a decent security / logging policy. Bad / LiquidVPN lacks a significant amount of servers to choose from, it doesn’t work with Netflix, it has no mobile app, and the general feeling of the service just feels a bit “mediocre”. Verdict / LiquidVPN is more than satisfactory compared to free VPNs or other VPNs out there that...[Read More]
The Netflix proxy error has been alive and well since the beginning of 2016, when Reed Hastings decided to put a stop to proxy users getting around licensed geo-restrictions. Previously, all a user had to do was use any proxy or VPN (that gave good enough speeds) to change their IP to a US IP to get the US library of content. Now in 2017, it’s not that simple. The good news is that it seems ...[Read More]
If you’re an iOS user, you might know the annoyance of being unable to download torrents onto your iPhone. The reason being is that Apple is very strict about protecting music, video, and other copyright licenses. If people are able to download torrent files through a native app on the app store, then it means less sales for the iTunes store. At the end of the day, Apple doesn’t really...[Read More]
If you’re looking for a totally free BitTorrent proxy option you’ve come to the right place. That is, if you’re willing to pay for a VPN subscription that includes a free BitTorrent proxy. I would NEVER use a “free proxy” service though. I don’t mean to be misleading. Free proxies by themselves are are often scams, ways to steal and sell data, and just plain slo...[Read More]
