Hey, I've gotten myself a VPN subscribtion for the next 2 years. So I've red that you can acquire better prices and bargains in some countries, and worse pricing in other quesition. So I'm asking how can we use VPN 100%, not only for security ? Any other benefits ?

Many people use VPN's for their port-forwarding capabilities. Depending on your VPN provider you could give out a referral code that gives you more time on your VPN for every purchase through your code. Lots of people use VPN's for DDoS Protection while gaming. Depending on where you live in the world, a VPN Can let you access certain websites that your country may have normally blocked. I don't know about cheaper prices in different countries, but I do know you can bypass region blocks with a VPN.

VPN just creates a tunnel for you to surf sites which are blocked or provides you with a normal shield from privacy leakage. But if you're thinking you're 100% safe, it's wrong.

Make sure you use residential proxy with all the settings of that IP. Then you can call yourself somehow safe. Plus, change browser settings to more secure as well.

Be careful using a VPN on this site as well, if someone else uses the same service as you and happens to get the same IP, you will be banned for multi-account.

Certain VPN providers won't give more then one person the same IP. This is something you have to worry about when using a proxy.

Most of the big branded ones do actually share IP addresses, it's too expensive to do anything else and dedicating IP addresses actually results in the VPN being less anonymous/protective. Nevertheless, they were referring to the IP history in regards to multis. If you are assigned an IP someone else has used in the past (they don't have to still be using it). Our tools will potentially mark it as a multi, I'd expect the staff to notice when something is a VPN and/or whether or not that IP is being used simultaneously between multiple users.

This can actually occur with traditional ISPs, though VPN providers don't usually have an ASN block with millions of IPs but rather more likethousands so it is pretty unlikely.

If it's a common provider your chances of the cross country pricing to occur is very unlikely, because many other people using the same VPN have already done it enough times to get you blocked from certain services.
