I've been using a VPN for 2 years now and I absolutely recommend it. I use it when YouTube blocks a video in my country, when specific sites are blocked in my country or when I'm downloading something via torrent. It's also not that expensive.. (I'm using NordVPN)
I appreciate my privacy and so have setup my router with a VPN. Now it's impossible for my internet provider to spy on anything I'm doing online.
Kickass keeps getting blocked for me so a VPN really saved my ass.
VPNs are absolutely the best 10/10
