I recently installed VPN Unlimited due to fear of getting my computer hacked.. Just that its seem my internet web been moving slightly, and sometime my mouse cursor move, I even checked the driver and video driver as well.. I got anti-virus and Router security.. Its just weird lol.

I think VPN Unlimited software may be bit overkilled lol.

I got it set on Keepsolid Wise on, there option Keep Solid wise TCP and UDP.. I checked on internet to see the difference.. there isn't really much difference. lol

Its said its for those who traveling in another country and they can click on that country in order to get access to certain website that you cannot get to in other country. -shrugs-

Also it mainly protecting Public WiFi.

It said it prevent the site tracking you, and keep Government from seeing what sites you go to!? =0 In my opinion You cannot hide from the government if they want to see what you're getting access to, they will know! lol

It give Virital IP Address, it won't display your main IP Address this is another security.

Problem with having this turn on, it prevent you from watching Netflix steaming. So I had to disable this lol. It doesn't have problem with Crunchy Roll.

The VPN company told me they will fix this problem within few months or it may take a year to finally allowing VPN turn on while watching Netflix.

How you all feel about VPN security? I think its good for those that traveling to another country and needing to gain access to website, if your ip is from another country (Public Wifi). Like viewing Video (Hulu etc).

The only time I use VPN is to play games on servers in different countries.

VPN is a very useful tool for privacy advocates but if your visiting sites while logged to your social media and google accounts then that defeats its purpose.

The government tracking depends if you are a subject of interest, they can easily infiltrate your home then hack and infect your computer with malware. They could also use court orders to force VPN or service providers located in their territory to comply and disclose information, you should be secure and private unless your a high profile individual in their blacklist.


But at 3:15 p.m., the quiet was broken when, out of nowhere, a young woman in street clothes charged toward Ulbricht yelling, "I'm so sick of you!" and grabbed his laptop. Ulbricht leapt from his seat to grab it back, when the half dozen other readers at nearby tables suddenly lunged for him, pushing him up against a window. Hearing the commotion, the librarian rushed over to assist Ulbricht. "Go back to your desk," the woman who had started it all told her. "We're making an arrest."

It shouldn't be protecting people who are terrorist or high profile criminal that escape from FBI. I prefer that our Government keeping eye on everyone just to protect our land of freedom.

I do agree with you, VPN shouldn't help criminals and I don't think it really does as there are better ways to encrypt your activity and make yourself invisible online. Heck there's some VPN companies who limit what services/websites you can access while you're connected to their tunnel, there's also other VPN companies who share activity of users with external companies or governments. So VPN doesn't nesseserly remove your online finger prints. If you want to hide online then I would suggest connecting to TOR, but that in of it self comes with it's own risks

Official slippery slope warning.

Discussion of VPN's, like their security benefits, costs, who provides best service, how to configure them, etc etc.... All good. Nothing wrong with this type of discussion.

If you start discussing using VPN's for anything other than privacy protection however, this thread will be locked down very quickly. So please make sure to stay within the topic of the OP, and only within the topic of the OP.

Hey open up a cmd prompt and type "netstat -ab". That should tell you all your open ports on windows and listeners. Many of which cannot be blocked without windows throwing a fit. If this concerns you switch to Linux because your never secure on windows.

The FBI operates and monitors some free vpns to catch people. Who ever controlls the VPN endpoint controls the data. Its why I laugh when people think VPNs solve all security problems.

if it's just web browsing then use TOR -- i noticed some sites will not work well with TOR though it's probably because you are jumping through 3-4 IP addresses with TOR so

Only thing I like about VPN is that it hide the IP Address.. I understand there a price for it..in another word your connection will be reduce.. Of course you gotta pay monthly fee! XD

I didn't care for the country changes or what the government see what I got on my computer lol, Got nothing to hide.

Today, The VPN is going very slow on internet.. So I had to disable it and got on the internet.. Oh man the speed was GREAT!

I just don't get why Internet security Mcafee and Norton don't offer to hide your IP address.. What funny thing is that my Anti-virus Mcafee call it "Total Protection" Um..its not totally protection if web master can see your IP address when surfing on their site lol.

Its just that your ip address show the location of your home town, and they can track that down! -_-; They need to add that feature so it'll save us having to get another software protection lol. >.<

Well, I Also used TunnelBear VPN due to free services but after August 2016 new I was scared. and never trust on any free VPN. DDOS attacks are most probably the biggest threat to any gamer. Anyhow, mostly I am using VPN for Online gaming. but I can also use for live streaming and torrenting.

Weird, I had problem with the payment form for online game monthly fee, so as last resort I decided to turn off VPN thinking its shouldn't be the problem that preventing me from paying the monthly fee..

Guess what, Approved!

I'm beginning to think VPN is causing more pain than good lol. >.<

Anyone having problem with VPN where they have to turn it off in order to pay for online game monthly fee?
