[News] The Advantages of Setting Up a VPN on Your Router

Hi Mi Fans

You connect to a router to access the internet at home or at the office every single day. The action has become as seamless as an automatic door at the entrance of a grocery store. However, like any storefront, a router has the tendency to let anything in and out of its network, and prevent users from accessing certain information.

Setting up a VPN gives users more freedom online, but they can be limited to a single device. Investing in a VPN router solution, such as those provided by FlashRouters, enables the advantages of your VPN across all your devices.

Establish safeguards for all your connected devices


We live in a world surrounded by smart and connected products accessing the Internet to make our lives more convenient. Unfortunately, the sharing of information between these devices can lead to data theft if your network is not properly secured.

Your run-of-the-mill router in between your devices and the Internet provides a minimum amount of security. Therefore, you can still be susceptible to cyber attacks through exploits that router manufacturers may not ever fix. Utilizing a VPN from your router can prevent this type of malicious behavior by hiding the traffic your devices generate.

Access country-restricted content on all your devices


VPNs have given us the ability to watch all the different content available on streaming platforms regardless of the country we’re in. If your VPN is limited to a single device, you’re probably stuck watching all those shows on your desktop.

Stop awkwardly connecting your laptop to your TV to watch on a bigger screen. Make your SmartTV smart again. Having a VPN on your router lets you enjoy geo-locked content on any connected device, whether it’s a smart TV or a gaming console.

A hassle-free and cost-effective VPN solution


Connecting to your VPN every time you want to go online can be frustrating and result in lost connection requiring a time-consuming reboot. A custom VPN-enabled router, such as those by FlashRouters, ensures an easy to use, reliable VPN connection across all your devices.

In addition, most VPN providers limit the number of devices able to connect to the network at once. However, devices connected to a router equipped with a VPN would only count as a single device. Therefore, allowing you to connect all your devices to the router without reaching your VPN device limit.

VPNs can be difficult to properly configure on a router, and your current router may not be suitable for your preferred VPN provider. It may be easier to simply purchase a preconfigured VPN-capable router that provides additional customization options and support.

agree i am using Airvpn,need to fiddle around with Linux commandline which is stripped down for embedded devices, you need to have strong networking knowledge to properly configure one. for the rest of us with limited networking operational experience, there is quite an amount of information to digest to setup the vpn securely.  Luckily for my edgerouter,there is good forum with goto advice to setup one,but it flashed and bricked with a new firmware, and i am kept busy with work and fail to reconfigure it

As you are looking forward to some fastest VPN for streaming and downloading then I would ask you to go for Private Internet Access. It has amazing speeds across the board, be an average of 79 Mbps across all times and sites. Try to google https://www.bulletvpn.com/best-streaming-vpn/. This safe, no-logs service is great for increasing your online safety without forgoing speed. Live chat support is available on the website and because of that many users like it. By using it you would be able to connect 5 devices at the time. It doesn’t keep logs, and DNS leak protection kill switch is always activated. I hope that with the help of this one you would be able to stream and download stuff easily.
