Yes. A good VPN allows you to connect to a wide variety of servers in a wide range of locations, meaning you can access content that’s restricted in your own country or territory. This is particularly useful when accessing streaming services. And because the VPN also encrypts your connection, you’ll be able to bypass restrictions imposed by your network administrator or internet service provider, because they won’t be able to see which sites or services you’re connecting to.
Yes, but not without risk. While a free VPN or proxy can give you access to restricted content, it probably won’t give you much privacy. Free VPNs usually cover their costs by selling your data, which makes you vulnerable to being tracked or profiled. Free services are also unlikely to give you a stable or fast enough connection for any high-bandwidth activities such as streaming or gaming. Your best bet is to use a low-cost, premium VPN like Private Internet Access.
Generally speaking, yes. VPNs are perfectly legal in most countries, and even the most restrictive regimes allow their citizens to use state-approved VPNs. However, using a VPN for illegal activities is still against the law. Also, accessing restricted websites or services from outside certain locations might violate their terms of service, which may result in your account with the service provider being terminated.
In theory, yes, but it’s probably not the best solution. While Tor does an excellent job of encrypting your internet data and obscuring your IP address, it is not a reliable tool for accessing blocked content. One major drawback is that most Tor nodes are listed in a public directory, which makes blocking Tor connections very easy. And even though it’s possible to force Tor to use a node in the country where you want to access blocked content, the connection speed is notoriously slow — much too slow for video streaming, for example. A VPN is a much more dependable and effective solution.
