6 Reasons Why You Should Not Use A VPN

1) YOU LIKE LIVING DANGEROUSLY

 

What is life without some risks, right? Security is overrated, that’s why you use the same password for everything, no? And those VPNs which encrypt your Internet to prevent hackers from attacking your connection? Who uses them?! Even hackers have to make a living somehow.

 

2) YOU ARE AN EXHIBITIONIST

 

The thought of being watched gives you a thrill. Well, much like living in a house with windows without curtains, you can have the same thrill online when you surf the Internet without a VPN. Because without your encrypted data, your government, Internet Service Provider, hackers, advertisers, and even your boss could be watching whatever you are doing online without a VPN. Woohoo!

3) YOU DO NOT LIKE HAVING TOO MANY NETFLIX OPTIONS

 

Don’t you hate it when your VPN unlocks Netflix libraries from the USA and now you have too many options of movies and shows to binge-watch? VPN services like BolehVPN have dedicated servers to unlock USA’s Netflix library. But, I mean, who has heard of titles like Hunger Games, 30 Rock, Futurama, and The Walking Dead anyway? With a VPN you might get tempted into watching all these and more.

4) YOU LOVE THE TEMPTATION OF TARGETED ADVERTISING

 

Do you feel really special when a site seems to remember your name, your location, and even suggests you all the same things you were looking at from before?

Well, targeted advertising is tied to your browsing habits. So if you were using a VPN like BolehVPN, it will protect your browsing sessions and anonymise yourself online. If you enjoy continuously receiving the same ads across every website, platform, and device specifically targeted based on your browsing habits, we do not recommend you to get a VPN.

I mean, you weren’t planning to waste your money on that fancy room humidifier with the scented water vapour and seven types of ambiance light options; but now you kind of do because of their sheer persistence, right?

5) YOU DO NOT LIKE DISCOUNTS

 

You hate your money. You cannot wait to be parted with it. Discounts are overrated. You believe that you should pay for everything on the Internet in full price. Since VPNs might just help you to score cheaper flights, hotels, and shopping by appearing from different regions, we definitely do not recommend you to use one if you do not like discounts.

 

6) YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE CONNECTED

 

Travelling to countries like China, Russia or Turkey would mean a disconnect from your family and friends since many apps, social media, and sites are banned in these countries. This is perfect if you have no use for Google, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and more.

Without a VPN to unblock all the restricted Internet content in these countries, you get to experience exactly how the locals are living with Internet censorship. Lost? Use an old-fashion paper map! Want to check-in with a loved one back home? Send postal mail!
