Another thing to mention: I've had friends that use VPNS to buy games that are sold cheaper in other countries. I forgot the exact games they bought, but they said that certain games on steam are much cheaper if you buy them from countries like Thailand.

I almost considered getting a VPN eventually because everyone made it sound so important and secure, as well as such a good and valuable deal with all these sponsorships. I would've just done my research on which provider is truly best beforehand because if Express or Nord are anything even remotely close to Raid Shadow Legends, I won't just blindly pick whatever a random YouTuber has been paid for to tell me oh how so awesome it is.
Now I am learning that, for the sake of privacy and security, as a normal user, you don't even need them because connections are already safe. That's good and relieving to know!
I might only get one for the sake of accessing region blocked content, then. A handful years ago, it was as simple as installing a browser add-on but eventually that one became a paid service. I also used VPN freeware at some point but there was only one IP to select and it was incredibly slow. Not really that much better than websites which promise to hide your IP.
I eventually moved on and stopped caring, but ever since these sponsorships started to flood the web, I've been reconsidering. Just not sure if I want to pay a monthly or yearly fee, God knows how high, if its security feature apparently isn't necessary after all, so that I'll use it for the only remaining gimmick maybe thrice a week. I don't feel like I'm that committed to watching American Netflix after all.

my main issue with VPN's and why i haven't gotten into them is: I run an adblocker... it's not a great one, mind you, but i do...

I get their ads anyway.

I'm sorry, if your business platform is based on customers trusting you, and relying on you respecting their privacy, then circumventing adblockers is a bad faith move.

Vpn = government spies on you
Tor = not effective against the US government (because of the NSA)
Windows = not safe against the NSA (Eternalblue) (also if the NSA had Eternalblue they're probably holding something alot worse
Mac OS X = get a life
Linux = you have no life (I'm not saying Linux is bad, I use Debian Linux, I'm saying the only people that use Linux don't have a soul or they're a database admin for Linux servers (98% of all servers are Linux)
iOS = get a life
Android = you have no life (android is a highly modified version of the Linux kernel)
Google = ... Everyone talks about mark Zuckerberg spying on you but no one talks about how google is swallowing a lot more data than Facebook
DuckDuckGo = at least read about it, I'm sure you will switch by the end of it
Arch Linux = I will hunt you down if you get arch or own arch, why can't people just use APT like normal humans. Who the hell is bothered to go to the weird arch package thing online and download it of a web browser and then install it. (Also that wasn't a death threat if you don't understand sarcasm but please don't get arch, it's poo)
All of the above = breathable by the NSA
P.S google gives data to the government

Edit: I think I know why, a long time ago I mistook Nord for Norton (and we all know Norton is a joke)
Also there ads and sponsors piss me off so much

So a VPN hides where you're connecting to ultimately? Like Tor? So is Tor a VPN if you don't otherwise have a VPN?

Just so you know, Tor is much better than a simple VPN at protecting your privacy/anonymity, read: matt.traudt(.)xyz/p/24tFBCJV.html Also, if you want to learn a bit more about Tor, Computerphile has made a few videos on it.

6:12 " extremely low, but not zero risk of being found out?" - Define "extremely low". I don't know about other countries, but a lot of the major movie studios in the US hire people to sit and log every IP address that is downloading a torrent of their film. Then, they send a letter to your ISP in an attempt to get you removed from their internet service. Getting caught isn't low at all depending on what you're downloading.
d0nut - 2 days ago
The point of the VPN in that situation is to mask your IP address while you torrent the movie. Those major movie studios would see an IP address for expressvpn or nordvpn, but not your residential address. It's still not "0%" because, hypothetically, they could subpoena your VPN provider to see what data may be available to unmask your IP address.

Unfortunately Netflix and co have ways to detect VPN usage to get around it, because of "exclusive rights to broadcast in a region". Of course, VPNs can be very useful at still watching those shows and movies via other means....

Ironically, I’m using a *free* VPN to watch this video, for privacy reasons. There are a LOT of free VPNS, so even if you did want to use one, you don’t necessarily need to use one of those ones

@Wombattler No corporation has a truly free service, if you're not paying monetarily, you're still paying with another type of currency. You might not necessarily get ads, but yes your data/metadata is most likely being sold.
Wombattler - 5 days ago
@Red Rain lemme guess, a free VPN uses your traffic that's diverted through it to feed you ads and that gives them money?
Red Rain
Red Rain - 6 days ago
(Ignoring the fact that you're using a "free" VPN) VPNs in general cannot protect your privacy, if you're actually using the VPN for privacy reasons, I'd highly suggest using Tor instead...
