Our Digital Innovation Specialist offers a VPN hack for beating the recent Netflix VPN ban and recommends the best VPNs to use to keep watching your favourite Netflix movies and TV shows.

Here’s what they said,

“If you’ve been using a VPN to access Netflix content from other regions, you have probably discovered that the recent Netflix VPN ban has made this little hack a lot harder to do. Only a few VPNs still work, you need to choose a provider that gives you a different IP address, which will enable you to access content from other countries.”

Other than getting access to a whole new world of entertainment, VPNs are also great for protecting your data and ensuring a safer browsing experience.

3 Top Tips from our Digital Innovation Specialist on selecting the best VPN for Netflix

1. Dedicated IP Addresses

Some VPNs offer dedicated IP addresses as an option. These are less likely to be detected and blocked by Netflix because they are used by a single user rather than shared among many.

2. Server Network

Look for a VPN provider with a broad and diverse server network. A larger server network increases the likelihood of finding servers that can successfully bypass the Netflix VPN detection.

3. Be Cautious of Free VPNs

A good VPN can cost as little as £1.78 per month and they are well worth it in my opinion. Users should be cautious of using free VPNs as they tend to limit usage or pose privacy concerns. Urban VPN, for example, has been known to log user activity and use outdated encryption protocols, so you really do get what you pay for.
