Of course, VPN is not mandatory. But you definitely need it if:

You want to protect your data.

VeePN creates a secure tunnel between you and one of our servers, and no one, not even your ISP, can look at what’s inside. We use a military-level encryption protocol called AES-256, which allows us to generate nearly an infinite amount of keys. This means that anyone who would try to hack into your VPN will have to spend billions of years decoding it, and it’s not an exaggeration!

With VeePN, your private data and online activity are protected from governments, ISPs, snoopers, hackers, and other prying eyes.

You want to access banned or censored content.

Governments often have a very specific notion of which information can be accessed, and which cannot. If you live in a place where certain websites and services are banned, VeePN is perfect for you. Simply reconnect using one of your 3999+ situated in 148 location, and get all the information you need. Also, using VeePN will help you use services that are currently inaccessible outside certain countries (i.e. Pandora Radio is available only in the US).
