A VPN is a virtual private network and it is an easy and effective way for people to protect their internet traffic. So what are some of the benefits of a VPN?
Change your location
With a VPN you can browse the internet as if you were located in the UK, Canada, the USA, or virtually any other country that you set the VPN location to. Why? Most likely the items you want to buy are only available through a US online retailer.
If you want to browse US online retailers for products they don’t have on the EU or your country-specific website, then you will need to set your Express VPN location to the US and you can shop directly from US retailers to your heart’s content.
Another added bonus is if you are an avid Netflix viewer, changing your location will give you access to the US Netflix Store.
