On March 18, I will have completed my first year using Unlocator. I replaced my old VPN with Unlocator because it was more efficient.
Unlocator doesn’t have all of the functions of a VPN, but it is less taxing on the bandwidth and I found it better for my needs.
If you really want to hide your location or protect yourself from unsafe WiFi Hotspots, then a VPN is required. A VPN will encrypt all data between you and the VPN server. However, to provide that encryption requires more bandwidth, processing time and has some effect on performance.
Many people use VPNs to be able to access US websites, such as NetFlix or Hulu, etc. Unilocator performs the same function with less overhead.
I also had problems with my Gmail accounts when I used a VPN, Google monitored my IP address and if it moved around, them Google would shut down my Gmail until I entered my account via a browser. Very annoying.
Unlocator uses another methodology and my IP address remains a Panama address. This has also been a benefit with my Security Cameras.
