Do I need Unrestricted Streaming if I live in the U.S.?
This depends on how often you stream video, if you travel, and your individual needs. Our Unrestricted Streaming add-on allows you to stream video on popular apps and websites like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube Red, HBO Go, and more from anywhere in the world, no matter where you're located.
These types of websites can normally detect when you're using a VPN, and block/restrict your access. They might also block you if you reside outside of the United States.
Certain banks, travel agencies, online stores, and other websites actually block access to people using VPNs as well. Our Unrestricted Streaming add-on can be used to circumvent these restrictions.
Typically this add-on is not required if you live in the United States. However, you will need to disconnect from the VPN first in order to browse these sites, and then re-connect once you're done. You can use our Unrestricted Streaming add-on to combat this, and stay protected while surfing these sites.
