Is using a VPN to access geographically restricted content legal?

There are many legitimate uses for a VPN. However, the legality of using one to access geographically restricted content is a bit of a grey area. While you’re not likely to attract the attention of the government, you do run the risk of having your VPN or streaming subscription cancelled. There is also the chance that a copyright holder may want to pursue legal action if you’re found to be accessing that content in an unlicensed region. Keep in mind that the very nature of a VPN masks your IP and prevents your online activity, so it’s not for us to say if and how the copyright holders would be able to identify you if you do choose to access their content without the proper licensing. Here at finder.com, we do not encourage internet browsing activity outside the law, we only aim to compare the services available.

What are the pros and cons of Getflix?

Pros

  • Built for streaming
  • Variety of payment options
  • 24/7 support

Cons

  • Concerns about Netflix legal action
  • Setup is a little complicated

Getflix was made for streaming and won’t waste any time letting you know much else. If that’s all you’re after, Getflix is a reasonably simple and easy to use service (though setup can be a pain). However, if you’re after a more comprehensive, more secure service, you might want to look elsewhere. There’s also the ongoing legal attention from Netflix. If Getflix folds, there’s no guarantee you can get your money back if you’ve invested in the 12 or 24 month commitment.

What is a VPN and how does it work?

A VPN works by pushing the data we transmit through an encrypted “tunnel”. Security features, like a firewall between the client and host server, stop eavesdroppers and hackers from viewing our personal data that may be vulnerable when using a public network.

What is encryption?

Data travelling from one source to another is often encrypted in a particular way that only the computer receiving it can recognize.

There are many different uses for a VPN. Consumer use and corporate uses differ greatly (more on that here), but most consumers use a VPN either to protect sensitive information or to mask their IP address.

What is the difference between a VPN service and a SmartDNS setup

A VPN service creates a tunnel that masks your IP address to make it appear that you are accessing the site from another location. Connection speed may be a bit slower with a VPN, but if you’re looking for encryption and security, VPN is the best option.

A SmartDNS service can be used to re-route traffic required for determining your geographical location. It works by changing your Domain System Name so the site thinks you’re in the correct area to access their content. Because a SmartDNS does not encrypt date, the connection sped will be much faster.
