    Advice for internet stuff? (No idea what I'm doing!)

    Advertisements
    In Geramany, Netflix is not available. I REALLY miss it and want something to fill my boredom. My brother suggested changing my VPN. No idea what hes talking about. I also found this link:

    How to Watch Netflix in Germany - VPNfreedom

    I don't want to click on anything if it will do damage to my computer, or if its not legal or something. Does anyone know anything about this or any advice? Thanks!

    Nope. you are fine. You can also used a paid service such as Proxpn. Use coupon code sn20 for a discount.
    All a VPN does is encrypt everything you do between you and a different server before it goes out to the rest of the net, hiding your IP address, then everything coming to you goes to that server, then is encrypted before it is sent to you.
    Perfectly legal.
    Choose a server in the states.
    Viola, netflix.

    I use a vpn anytime I use public internet to make sure no one can grab my passwords, etc.

    I am using a VPN right now. If it truly is a VPN, perfectly safe.

    Or you can use a free proxy server which does the same thing, but without the encryption or security. But it is safe.

    We pay $5 a month for Unblock-Us - smarter faster VPN. It allows really consistently good access to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. though it doesn't allow you to watch music videos and stuff that are protected by GEMA.

    I'm pretty sure we use this service as well and have never had a problem.
