10 Reasons You Need an Anonymous VPN

Updated on: 2017-02-14 13:16:34 UTC

Introduction

Do not surf the web without an Anonymous VPN!

We’re giving you 10 reasons why.
In 2016, social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter experienced rising levels of censorship as governments attempted to halt the spread of information, especially regarding anti-government protests around the world. Additionally, Freedom House revealed messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram became the focus of these restrictive governments. Without much remorse, it is clear that social platforms will not see the end of censorship any time soon.

 

In 2017, we can take further steps to overcome these kinds of obstacles by using an anonymous VPN to secure your privacy, access restricted content and experience money saving benefits.

 

Here are 10 reasons why having a VPN should be at the top of your internet security priority list:

1. Prevent Government Tracking with an Anonymous VPN

2016 saw progressively increasing government surveillance and censorship. The Freedom on the Net 2016 report found that Internet freedom around the world declined for the sixth consecutive year. They also reported that 67% of users live in countries where they experience censorship, 38 countries made arrests based on social media posts over the past year and 27% of users live in countries where people have been arrested for facebook content.

With an anonymous VPN, you can browse the web with an encrypted connection while maintaining complete privacy and preventing agencies like the NSA from monitoring your online activities.

2. Prevent Tracking via Search Engines or ISPs

Reflecting on your personal search queries, you may want to keep these details private. Unfortunately, once you enter a site, website owners can track your every move and your Internet Service provider can track every single website you’re visiting via your IP address. These personal search queries are saved with your profile, and your saved searches can even be legally requested!

If you don’t like the idea of anyone else having access to this information, we don’t blame you. Thankfully, you can use an anonymous VPN to route your Internet activity through a remote third-party server, hide IP addresses, conceal your search activity, and make your traffic completely anonymous.

3. Protect Yourself over Data-Capped Networks

Did you know that just over one in ten Americans are “smartphone-only” internet users, meaning they do not have traditional home broadband service. Smartphone internet, however, is not equivalent to home internet, meaning increased data caps greatly threaten online security.

Why? Research has found that individuals limited by data caps were less likely to download and install software updates, leading to serious security breaches.

With an anonymous VPN, you can browse the web with a fully secure encrypted connection, and can even dramatically reduce data usage – sometimes by 50%. Don’t sacrifice safety for data ever again with a VPN!

4. Protect Yourself over Public Wi-Fi with an Anonymous VPN

Public WiFi is everywhere – cafes, hotels, airports and local city hot spots. While it is convenient, it is also completely unsecured, acting as a playground for hackers and snoopers looking to launch a cyber attack or steal your private social media or banking details. This is because hackers can set up a simple router that attracts unsuspecting free Wi-Fi hotspot chasers, gaining access to everything on your device - from passwords to financial information to sensitive personal information.  A VPN  connects to a remote server and directs your traffic through a secure network, allowing you to access public Wi-Fi with a protected connection.

5. Protect Your Online Security

Identity theft is one of the most prevalent Internet crimes, with the number of victims of identity theft rising by 57% last year, according to the fraud prevention service Cifas. Business accounts are particularly at risk – 71 percent of cyber attacks occur at businesses with fewer than 100 employees.

Browsing anonymously with a bank-level encrypted VPN connection allows you to protect your credit card and banking details, information, emails, personal exchanges, and even valuable corporate information.

6. Save Money on Streaming Subscriptions

Media streaming services also price discriminate across countries. For instance, Apple Music can be purchased 80% cheaper from certain locations with emerging markets. Also, many sports streaming services are cheaper or even free in specific countries.

 

The use of an anonymous VPN allows you to mask your actual geographic location and enjoy the best streaming subscriptions at the best prices.

7. Unblock Websites, Movies, TV Shows, and Music

Some of the very best streaming sites, movies, and music are blocked as a result of geo-restrictions.  Like streaming entertainment sites, popular services are unavailable in many countries.

These services block access by detecting the geographic location of your IP address. With an anonymous VPN, you can unblock websites, bypass these restrictions and gain unlimited entertainment access.

8. Unblock Your Favorite Social Networks, Apps, and Games

Social media and games are often blocked due to school firewalls and country censorship; over 54% of companies ban Facebook and Twitter, 98% of schools filter online content, and different countries release games on different dates, depending on your location.  

An anonymous VPN can bypass these restrictions, unblock websites and games and evade country censorship, allowing you to enjoy the best social media networks and apps online. Unlike a free anonymity proxy, with a high quality VPN you can experience a super-fast connection (no competition for bandwidth), no speed caps and 99% up time.

9. Save Thousands of Dollars on Flights and Rental Cars

It’s a closely guarded secret that airlines and rental car companies charge customers different prices based on the IP address they use to purchase the ticket. With an anonymous VPN, you can switch your IP address to test the prices from different countries. You’ll instantly discover significant price differences depending on the country.

As you can read in our from our blog, 10 Incredible Ways to Save Money on Your Holiday Travel, savings can be thousands of dollars on international airfare. We even found savings of over $600 dollars on rental cars when we tried this out ourselves.

10. Save Money on Software Subscriptions & Services

Many software packages and services can be bought for significantly less outside their country of origin, including Microsoft Office, Adobe CC and more. In the U.S, price discrimination can even vary among states! TechScience.org recently discovered that the Princeton Review’s Online SAT Tutoring service varied on a regional basis.

Using an anonymous VPN will allow you to make a purchase with the right IP Address to save hundreds of dollars.
