I remember years ago I had a really bad break up. You know, the kind of breakup that turns your life upside down, everything changes and you don't know what to do. You're angry, sad, confused, depressed, sometimes all at the same time. Then one day my best friend called me and said he's in town and we should meet up at the bar. Drove two and a half hours just to get here. So we sat at the bar, a couple of beers in and I was just pouring my heart out. After a while of me ranting he turned to me, put his arm on my shoulder, smiled and said "Use my code to get NordVPN free for the first month." That's when I knew everything would be alright.

I like when Sam is bent over the rock and screams "INSERT DISC 2"


chlorinegasattack

In my brain when watching the movies I still brace for the "insert disk 2 scene" in each film haha


yagamison

Everytime I inserted the second disc the movie would play but with commentary on! I have Billy Boyd saying: "and welcome back to uhh.. disc number two..."(that's about when I pressed the menu button) imprinted in my memory.

I've become so nostalgic to it that I always watch my old DVDs over the Blue-Rays 🤣.

Nord VPN sucks, in fact most VPNs suck these days since a lot of websites just block known VPNs these days.


Gainit2020throwaway

Never had a problem with Mullvad


Bone_Apple_Teat

And nine, nine VPNs sponsored videos to the race of users, who, above all else, desired anonymity. But they were, all of them, deceived, for another technology was made. In the land of browsers, in the fires of Mount Netscape, the Dark Lord Taher Elgamal forged in private/public an HTTPS/SSL technology. And into this technology he poured his privacy, his security and his will to encrypt all communications.


d_riteshus

walloftrust

Nordvpn is scareware and pain in the ass. Don't use it!


Imaw1zard

Can't be the only one who thinks VPNs is just a bunch of fear mongering, like no nobody gives a fuck you're into kinky porn. The only practical uses would be if you're into some shady business or watching a show restricted from your country. I haven't heard any argument as to why VPNs have a mass user benefit.


Bornimmortalx

Torrenting, watching movie/tv streams online, online anonymity when connected to public WiFi, etc...


Imaw1zard

Are you IP blocked from torrenting and watching tv shows online, or is it a a safety concern ? Because while I've never heard of a case, I wouldn't say never. But people getting in trouble for using torrents is incredibly rare, unheard of. The people running the websites, sure. But generally nobody wastes time and resources going after individual users. Same with online streams of shows. And I've heard cases of celebrities data being hacked because they accessed a public network which was insecure, but as far as I know VPNs only change your IP they don't provide extra encryption.


HeJind

Not even remotely true. They will notify your internet provider who will then give you a warning. If you are caught again they will disconnect your service. It happens a lot, but really depends on the company. I'd bet if you torrent an EA game you'll get a letter from your internet provider before a week is over.


WolfsLairAbyss

A friend of mine basically got a ransom letter from his ISP for torrenting porn. It said that he could either pay them like $1500 or they would release his info to the production company who was going to sue him. He decided to pay because he works in IT and it would basically destroy his career. I have received several warnings from my ISP for torrenting. Since I started using a VPN a haven't heard anything from my ISP.


[deleted]

[удалено]


kabrandon

Correction: they encrypt your data from the client device (wherever the VPN client is running, which is more often your laptop/computer/phone) to the VPN server. (Or the VPN service’s exit node depending on how their architecture is set up.)


[deleted]

[удалено]


jondySauce

I've gotten a cease and desist letter from my ISP in my early days of torrenting. Won't even go to a torrent site without connecting to a VPN now


Confused_Emus

> VPNs only change your IP they don't provide extra encryption I think you're thinking of a proxy, because you definitely don't seem to understand how a VPN works.


kabrandon

If you torrent anything that recently came out it often results in a cease and desist letter from your ISP if you’re in America at least. This isn’t at all true from my experience.


[deleted]

The only one I’ve heard that’s made me consider it is the ability to watch shows or movies that aren’t available in your country. Say like you live in the U.S., and the show you want to watch is only available on the British version of Netflix.


Imaw1zard

Yeah that's one use that seems pretty valid. But a lot of their marketing seems to center around protecting your search history etc which seems unnecessary.


AdrianBrony

That and torrenting are the main actual legit useful cases for them.


lifedragon99

This is good reason to have one but Netflix and others are blocking Vpns now. Amazon seems to have always does it. I used express for a year then went to watch something on British Netflix and the blocked me. Thankfully I was able to get a full refund. As the whole point we had it was to watch other countries Netflix.


baconbitarded

Biggest issue I have with it is Chromecasting still doesn't work to a big screen


CoreyVidal

You may be able to install the VPN on your router, which then applies to every device on your network.


boringarsehole

> The only practical uses would be if you're into some shady business or watching a show restricted from your country. Well, that and torrents are enough to justify the demand for it. Also it's not just shows, some services simply do not work for certain countries. Also, the fact that you have nothing to hide doesn't mean you should be ok with collecting your data (I mean, Facebook etc). Your ISP/employer definitely has the means to track what sites you visit (hostnames, not full urls, unless your employer is a shitbag). Whether they do it it's for you to decide.


Imaw1zard

I've heard the reason to be against your data being sold is for privacy issues. But I haven't heard how that data can be used in a malicious manner without diving into some conspiratorial territory. It's mostly just targeted ads which are kind of convenient. But if you're at work and some asshole boss is tracking you as a way of monitoring whether you're working then that could be a good use of a VPN.


xd366

>I haven't heard any argument as to why VPNs have a mass user benefit. remote work? have you been under a rock the past year and a half.


nightofgrim

Clearly they mean all of these VPN as a privacy service


MagoNorte

That is true they are a bit overhyped. As I understand it, the main security use for consumers is keeping your traffic safe if you use public wifi: don’t do banking or make purchases on public wifi, but if you do, you should seriously consider a vpn. Of course, getting region-restricted content is another reason to use one. Here’s [a bit more detail on the what vpns do and don’t do.](https://youtu.be/CNRdHQJ9AMk)


[deleted]

I use it because my gym’s wifi blocks twitter and random other sites, works perfectly on vpn


kabrandon

One big reason for VPNs is say you’re on public wifi at a coffee shop or McDonalds or something, other people can snoop at what you’re doing with tools like Wireshark. Things are getting better because TLS is more commonplace these days, but say you enter an unprotected web form for a username and password or some payment info, that all can be snooped on and then used by a malicious person inside that coffee shop. With a VPN, all traffic between the client computer (your laptop) and the VPN server are encrypted, so your traffic makes it far out of the coffee shop’s public network before being unencrypted. Like I said, this is less of a concern these days because TLS is much more common these days than it was even 5-10 years ago. But it’s still a valid reason to get a VPN. Another reason I have one is because I run a few websites out of my house, and thanks to the miracles of DNS, when I try to access one of my sites, it pulls up my home router’s configuration page instead… UNLESS I’m on my VPN and then it displays my websites just fine. Finally, the last reason I know of that many people get VPNs that you didn’t already list is to protect themselves from getting C&D letters from their ISP while torrenting movies or TV shows.


firstmanonearth

what about all the people who live in countries where being gay is illegal, or even punishable by death is that fear mongering or are you just privileged and ignorant


Piogre

[An honest VPN ad](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVDQEoe6ZWY)


Imaw1zard

That was pretty interesting, it does confirm mostly what I thought VPNs were used for.


ProNerdPanda

I'd use a VPN because I live in the EU and Google had the bright idea of locking languages on movies you buy from a specific IP on Youtube. So if I want to watch a movie in English I have to be on a VPN or else I'll be watching it in Italian. I'm still mad.


ScrubbyFlubbus

Many ISPs will shut down your service for torrenting copyrighted content. VPNs hide that traffic.


Imaw1zard

I've never heard of that, sounds interesting.


nightofgrim

Considering every important site and app you use has SSL, there isn’t any need. Even on public WiFi. If your bank doesn’t have modern SSL you’re already fucked. The *only* thing I can think of is torrenting. I’ve gotten a strongly worded letter from Comcast many years ago for downloading a episode of Archer once lol. For everything else you’re just moving your encrypted traffic from one dealer (ISP) to another (VPN Provider).
