Should I Turn Off My Virtual Private Network Sometimes

In a world that is full of cyber threats, cybercriminals, governments surveillance, and data breaches, it’s really hard to say yes. So, here at VPN Unlimited, we truly believe that keeping your Virtual Private Network on all the time is a great decision to make.

Here are the reasons why you have to keep your VPN on all the time.

Ensure Your Privacy and Security

Please keep in mind that disconnecting your VPN frequently might become an automatic habit, as a result, you don’t know when you’ll forget to turn your Virtual Private Network on while you’re using an unprotected public Wi-Fi or a website.

Help You Enjoy More Streaming Content

Streaming content on popular platforms is not the same for every country. The libraries may differ depending on the region you are in. Some American streaming libraries are not available for all countries in the world. To access the necessary library, you need to use a VPN, and change your physical location to the United States. 

In this way, you will be able to stream any content on streaming services. VPN Unlimited has more than 3000 servers, across more than 80 locations around the world, including the United States. By using our VPN, you can enjoy American shows wherever you are!

Access Blocked Content

Internet censoring is a huge problem in many places in the world. Many dictatorships in the world are using it for different reasons. A Virtual Private Network is your best tool to bypass censorship and access any content you desire. 

Whether you use the internet for streaming, social platforms, getting information, or accessing any content, our Virtual Private Network will help you to break the barrier of censorship. We provide you with the best tools and technologies to get the best secured, private, and enjoyable online experience.

Protect Your Financial Credentials

Whether you're shopping online or banking, you have to make sure that your financial information and credentials are far away from hackers. With our app, rest assured that your sensitive banking data are safe. We implement AES-256 military-grade encryption in our software, which is the strongest encryption technology available until today. A VPN can protect you against “Man in the middle” attacks. Those attacks' main goal is to drop pall the communications between you and your online banking server, to steal your passwords and other credentials.


As mentioned above, a Virtual Private Network is meant to protect your data, ensure your anonymity, and bring you the best content that the internet provides. So, the reasons for keeping it on all the time are much more than the reasons (if there’s more than one reason) for turning it off.

One may argue that keeping a Virtual Private Network on all the time might drain the phone battery. In fact, here at VPN Unlimited, we made some tests to see whether our Virtual Private Network causes battery draining. The results have shown that in most cases, there’s almost no difference in the battery performance, whether the app was off or on.
