Do I need Unrestricted Streaming for free websites like YouTube?
No, the Unrestricted Streaming add-on is not required in order to stream video on free websites like YouTube and Twitch.
This add-on is mostly intended for subscription-based services, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube Red, and HBO Go. 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.
For free websites like YouTube and Twitch, you can simply connect to any of our various U.S. locations and you will be fully protected.
