Use a personal IP address for communication without limits
Updated on July 13, 2021: From now on, traffic filtering, malware protection, and suspicious DNS activity blocking are available as a part of the separate DNS Firewall app.
Like many people, you probably spend an hour or two on the Internet every day. You post on social media, stream music, watch videos, participate in online forums, among others. You won’t probably encounter anything extraordinary while doing these things. Until one day, you suddenly find that you can’t log on to your favorite forum.
If something like this happens to you, it might be that you’ve been banned from the forum server on suspicion of spamming. Or maybe the administrator installed a banlist and it turned out that your IP address was in that list. If you’re able to convince the administrator (if you can still get in touch with him) to lift the ban, good for you. That’s often an arduous, long process, and like many others, you’ll just probably say goodbye to your beloved forum and look for something else to take its place.
Why does this problem even occur in the first place? Because, more often than not, you’re using a dynamic IP address to connect to the Internet. And since you have no control over the users on this same address range, if one of those users starts spamming the forum, you might end up getting banned even though you did nothing wrong.
How to prevent banning
One way to prevent the above from happening to you is to get a personal IP address that you can use in your favorite forums or online communities, among others. VPN Unlimited offers just such a product – a personal IP address, one that isn’t shared with anyone else, one that you have exclusive rights to.
A personal IP from VPN Unlimited allows you to connect to your favorite online community using your very own personal IP address, no matter where you’re connecting from.
Don’t get banned, get protected
You don’t need to convince the administrator of your favorite online community that you’re not a spammer or a cyber criminal. When faced with an adversary, administrators immediately look at the IP address to check where the spam is coming from. They’ll be able to put two and two together. Thus, if you use a personal static IP to log on to social networks, you won’t get accidentally banned from the forum (unless, of course, you’re really sending spam, in which case even our personal IP address won’t be able to help you).
So, what are you waiting for? Get a Personal IP from VPN Unlimited now!
