Wondering how to download using a VPN? You’re in the right place. Here’s the step-by-step guide to using a VPN while downloading so you can continue enjoying your media without worrying about copyright infringement or throttling from your Internet Service Provider.
Get A VPN Account
The first step to using a VPN is to get a VPN account. If you already have a Netflix account, you can use their VPN to stream content legally. If not, you can create one. It’s free, and it usually takes only a few minutes to set up.
You want to make sure that you pick a reputable VPN provider. Doing research into the best VPNs is highly recommended before signing up with any company. Also, look into their privacy policies and make sure that you’re comfortable with how they treat your personal information.
Install The VPN App
After you have your VPN account set up, you need to download and install the VPN app on your phone. You can find the app in your App Store or Google Play Store.
Installing the app is easy and takes only a few seconds. Once it’s done, you’ll see a pop-up letting you know that the app has now started up and is operating on your device. You can also see the app’s icon on your phone’s home screen. This is so you can easily access it whenever you need.
Set Up The VPN On Your Computer
Now that you have your VPN app installed on your phone, you can set it up on your computer as well. This is where things might get a little tricky. To ensure that your VPN works on both your phone and computer, you need to ensure that their settings match. While you can manually configure your VPN on your computer, most companies provide helpful wizards and tools that make this process much easier. (You can also use your phone’s settings to connect to WiFi networks when you’re on the go).
On your phone, open Settings. Then, click on the VPN icon in the top-right corner of your screen. If you’re using the Yakuake app, you can access the VPN settings by clicking on the icon with three lines in the top-right corner of the Yakuake window. This will bring up a menu with options to either Connect or Disconnect from the VPN.
On your computer, open the Settings app. Then, click on the Network icon at the top of the screen and choose “Properties.” On the General tab, make sure that the “Supports VPN” option is checked.
Configure The VPN On Your Android Device
If you’re using an Android device, you can use the built-in VPN feature to connect to WiFi networks and use the internet while you’re on the go. There are only a few things you need to configure before using the service. First, make sure that your device is on “Auto” or “Silent” mode while charging. This will prevent your device from randomly connecting to open WiFi networks and being vulnerable to any hacks or attacks. Also, make sure that your device’s firmware is up to date. This will make a world of difference and ensure that your Android device is running the most recent software possible. Finally, ensure that your device is connected to WiFi before you use it for the first time. This will prevent any connectivity issues while you’re trying to use the VPN.
Use The VPN While You Download
Once you have everything setup correctly on your phone and computer, you can use the VPN app anytime you want to download files. You don’t need to worry about your data being throttled or intercepted while using the service.
However, there are a few things you should keep in mind while using the service. First, ensure that your device is always on while connected to WiFi. This will prevent your device from unexpectedly disconnecting and causing you to lose access to all your files. Also, ensure that while you’re connected to WiFi, your phone’s proxy settings are set to “NONE.” This ensures that you’re always getting the fastest possible download speeds without worrying about your personal information being intercepted or your data being throttled by your Internet Service Provider.
