Brazilian Ip Address Websites And Streaming Tv

Unfortunately, as the internet makes the world smaller and more accessible, there are forces at work that are trying to keep it separate. Ok, so things are not quite as 'evil' as that last statement sounds, but what I mean to say is that there are a lot of restricted websites on the internet. They're only restricted because of the where you are versus the location of the website servers. There are many Brazilian websites - streaming TV and movies, banking, business, and forums that are blocked from outside access. You need a Brazilian IP address to access them.

Virtual Private Networks

There are a lot of things that virtual private networks can do. The one that concerns us is the change of IP address. Other things would include keeping your online identity and activity private, securing your connection on public internet connections, and connecting you securely to servers at your home or office. Let's talk about the IP change.

Once you're connected to a VPN server, your real IP address is replaced by one from the VPN server. This of course reflects the location of the VPN server. In this case, because the VPN servers are in Brazil, you get a Brazilian IP address. This can be used on your phone or computer, and can be accessed anywhere in the world.

For example, if I'm on an Android phone/tablet, iPhone/iPad, or even on a Nokia phone I can use PPTP VPN to change my IP address. I could be in Russia or in Venezuela, in The US or in China. Where I am, other websites and other users will think that I'm in Brazil. Some websites with super detection will see that I'm using an anonymous IP address, but they won't be able to see my real IP. It's rare that a website would block an anonymous IP, but with some more secure websites you may find that you're asked more security questions. This is because this type of IP address is sometimes used by criminals trying to hide their identity.

But don't let that worry you!

VPN services are totally legitimate businesses, and seek out abusive users, hackers, and other people we don't want to associate with. You can legally, easily, and quickly get a Brazilian IP address on your phone or computer.

Oh yes, I forgot about the computer part. So if I'm using Mac, Windows, or Linux, I can still use PPTP, but if I want to upgrade for security, I might want to use something called OpenVPN. It has better data encryption, which means you're pretty much impossible to hack.

So as you can see, there's a variety of road to go down. You can get a fast, easy to install PPTP VPN for your phone or computer. You could get a secure L2TP VPN for your phone, or an encrypted OpenVPN for your computer.
