HideMyAss recently added servers specifically for users who want to unblock US and UK Netflix. We have tested it and confirmed it works on both desktop browser and Netflix’s mobile app on Android and iOS. We recommend you contact HMA’s customer support to ask which server to use and troubleshoot any issues you might have connecting, as you might need to change some other settings on your device as well. The US server also unblocks Hulu.
Besides your ISP, you also need to worry about copyright monitors. There are agencies that monitor P2P networks. When they detect that users are sharing copyrighted content, they track the users based on their IP addresses. After that, the agencies often send emails threatening legal action. Some of these agencies work for major content producers, such as movie studios, while others are simply trolls trying to extort money. Using a reliable VPN to download torrents will protect you against these agencies and extortionists.

Chrome Extension has been promised like a year ago, my subscription is about to expire and no extensions to date. Pure promises, not mention slow Torrent download and disconnection. They bragged that they are working on their Chrome Extension, how funny was that working on a single feature for more than a year??? I guess you only have one developer for God Sake.

For the Mac, Ivacy offers just one app. You won't, however, find it in the official Mac App Store. You have to download it from the Ivacy website instead. We haven't had the chance to bring this app into the labs for testing just yet, but I will update this review once we do. The competition between macOS VPN apps is heating up, as nearly every single VPN company now supports the fruit-flavored computer maker.

In order for a VPN to to pass our test, it must be able to unblock Netflix videos out of the box, meaning no manual configuration outside of the VPN app is necessary. It must also bypass Netflix’s firewall with a reasonable degree of consistency—no reconnecting to the same server over and over in the hopes of finding an IP address that hasn’t been blocked. Finally, we used the paid subscription versions of VPNs when available.
Seedboxes are more expensive than proxies and VPNs, ranging from entry-level boxes at $10 or $20 a month to fast boxes with more storage at $50 or even $100 a month. But, it offers a lot of advantages over proxies and VPNs—if you have the money to spare and want super fast speeds and a good ratio, we highly recommend getting a seedbox. Providers like Whatbox, Feral, and Bytesized come highly recommended, but a bit of searching can provide you with a ton of options. Shop around and see which one’s best for you.
Using a VPN almost certainly means losing some internet speed because your data is taking a longer, more circuitous path than usual. With a VPN you can expect an increase in latency, as well as a reduction in download and upload speeds. When I review VPNs, I first run a series of tests using Ookla's internet speed test tool. (Note that Ookla is owned by Ziff Davis, which also owns PCMag.) Ookla tests latency, upload speed, and download speed, so those are the figures I look at as well.

Our custom-built VPN for Netflix gives you the ability to Unblock Netflix from any region. If you want to access the entire library, there is no better place to start than by accessing Netflix US. Whether you are traveling or reside abroad, you will be able to access American Netflix in a few simple steps. So if you want to enjoy the latest TV shows and movies in Ultra HD, that too without compromising your account, then Ivacy’s Netflix VPN is the way to go.

Windscribe VPN is a Canadian VPN provider that has made a dent in the low-end VPN market. They claim not to keep any logs of activity, and their software is quite good. Windscribe is also one of the last remaining VPNs that works reliably with Netflix without generating the dreaded 'proxy error'. (Hint: NordVPN is another that works flawlessly with Netflix). 
A VPN can make it appear that you are in a different location, by routing your traffic through a server in a different country. However, many streaming services frown on this behavior. In particular, Netflix is notorious for blocking VPNs. Happily, that wasn't a problem when I tested Ivacy on Windows. I had no trouble loading up Lost in Space on Netflix while connected to a US VPN server. Your mileage, however, may vary.
Journalists and activists operating in regimes that censor the internet have used VPNs for years to securely tunnel past those web controls and access the open internet. By the same token, you can connect to a distant VPN server and make it appear as if your traffic is coming from a different country. That's handy, especially if you want to stream video from a different country.

Our team recorded roughly 1,650 results on each platform: Netflix website in a desktop browser, iOS Netflix app, and Android Netflix app. The website in a desktop browser was unblocked 286 times, while iOS and Android apps were close at 197 and 184, respectively. It’s worth noting that not all the VPNs we tested have mobile apps, in which case the result was negative.
Copyright holders are often large media companies that outsource piracy litigation to shifty law firms dubbed “copyright trolls”. Copyright trolls monitor popular torrents for the unique IP addresses of devices that connect to the swarm to upload or download files. They then match those IP addresses to the internet service providers that assigned them to customers. The copyright troll goes through the ISP to send a settlement letter or a copyright violation notice to each torrenter. Settlement letters demand money and threaten legal action if the users don’t pay.

I have used Ivacy for almost two years and just a couple of failures with their KILL SWITCH. The downloading of my data stopped….very nice. Unfortunately the uploading did not! This has happened numerous times and the last time I got the letter from Hollywood via my Internet provider. Something about a copyright infringement. This is the second one while using the Ivacy program. Various servers in numerous countries, yet I am getting the same IP address assigned to me when I hook up.
