I thought the idea was better privacy and security as well as access to web content that is not available from Thailand?

What was your reason for getting a VPN? I mean what were you expecting from it?

 

I have ExpressVPN and am very happy with it. If you look at the reviews on the net it is consistently one of the better ones. I have it on all my devices; laptop, phone, iPad.

 

It won't hide adverts. It is not meant for that. If that is what you are looking for, you need an adblocker.

 

What it can do is make your internet surfing and online banking more secure.

It can also enable you to watch media, such as BBC iPlayer, ITVPlayer, US Netflix here in Thailand. Also watch external news and read newspapers that might otherwise be banned in Thailand by letting you choose which country's servers you want to go through.

 

I always turn on my VPN before I do any internet banking. Even at home on my own network.

 

Others may add other uses.

 

Pretty sure ExpressVPN post lots of videos on youtube that can help you.

Yes, you should cancel and read more about what a VPN really is. Then you can join again.

If you want better Netflix on your laptop or PC, install a free browser called 'Opera'. It's very fast, no-ads and has free built-in VPN. However, VPN tends to slow things down, so turn it off for better Netflix.

don’t go for free VPNs.... if it’s free, you’re the product. Just sayin...

Just about everybody uses a VPN for a specific purpose. If they don't have a purpose, why bother? In my case I like to download and watch BBC programmes from the UK.

 

What was your purpose @muffy?

Unless you want to access some geo-locked content from home etc, most people dont need a VPN. 

Many seem to think they need a VPN, then realise they dont.

OP installed the VPN in order to switch location in order to get Netflix programs for ie. USA or any other country. 

 

Many series or movies available in USA are not available in Thailand due to licensing restrictions.  

 

@OP: depending on where you want to switch your location (phone, laptop, android smart TV), the procedure is different and requires fiddling with the setup of DNS in order to convince Netflix that you changed the country.  Lot of videos in YouTube about that, Google is your friend...

 

But as others said.. a VPN "only" to circumvent licensing issues with Netflix is kind of stupid, a VPN is about privacy and security.
