Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPN

Most 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 is being logged.

Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.

Your current identifying IP Address is 18.215.185.97 – 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.

Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!

Step 9 – Click OK for Connection request if it appears.

Step 10 – You will notice that your IP Address changes along with location of connection.  You are now operating anonymously through your device.

Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.

Successful Connection

Congratulations!  You are now protected by a VPN which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.
