Many cord-cutters use a VPN and rightfully so. The free streaming applications, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers. Without a VPN, your IP Address can be logged.
Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.
When you use a VPN, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one. A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet. This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.
The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is iPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy. Its important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.
