Why use a VPN for IPTV?

A VPN allows you to change your IP address on a regular basis as well as to use the internet in a completely anonymous way. This will allow you to have access to IPTV Servers and other channels from any country in the world.

Although IPTV and VPN are two very distinct technologies, it must be said that the use of an IPTV requires that of a VPN.

That’s what you need to know

The first thing we need to remind you is that the majority of internet providers attack IPTV servers by blocking traffic data or shapping traffic. And that because they own TV rights. We recommend the use of a VPN in sometimes on matches football time.

Cloudflare is adding a free VPN to its app

Using Cloudflare's WARP VPN on your devices

What’s new is Warp, a VPN built by Cloudflare that attempts to reroute your traffic to make it even quicker and also encrypts it where possible for added security and privacy.

As well as offering the privacy and security of other mobile VPNs, Cloudflare has designed Warp to be better optimized for mobile.

For example, it uses the WireGuard VPN protocol, which Cloudflare claims should reduce battery drain compared to a typical VPN app. Cloudflare also claims Warp should reduce data use by caching and compressing content where possible.

Although VPNs are often used to trick websites and services into thinking you’re accessing them from a different location, this isn’t a feature that Cloudflare’s app will offer. Instead, the VPN works behind the scenes to increase speed and privacy.

Cloudflare says it doesn’t write any user-identifiable data to disk, and it also says it won’t use it to target you with ads. Instead, Warp will rely on a freemium model to make money.

You can either use the standard Warp service for free or pay for Warp+, which uses Cloudflare’s Argo technology to further increase speeds and network reliability. The company was unwilling to commit to pricing at the time of publication.

It’s charging around $4.99/mo for Warp+ (cost varies by region), but you can get 1GB of Warp+ data by referring the service to your friends.

How to enable Warp VPN service?

To enable Cloudflare’s free VPN service, you need to follow the steps mentioned below.

Using Cloudflare's WARP VPN on your devices
  1. Download the app from Google Play or App Store (Steps for iOS will be similar).
  2. Tap on “Get Started” and follow the steps to set up the app.
  3. Once you are inside the app, tap on the “Enable” button at the bottom of the screen.
  4. On the next screen, tap on the toggle button > tap on the “Install VPN Profile” button > Tap Ok.

After that, you’re all set to use the free VPN service. To turn it off, simply tap on the toggle button again.

Just like other VPN services, a persistent notification will show up in the notifications shade telling you that the Warp VPN service is active.

Warp is not like other VPN services

While the idea of a free VPN service excites many of us, Cloudflare says Warp is not the same as other dedicated VPN services.

Cloudflare claims that it’s VPN service is meant to “ensure that your data is secured while it’s in transit” and it will try to kick out any middle man trying to steal your data or spy on you.

However, the company has straightaway mentioned that its VPN service is not for those who want to hide their IP addresses from websites or want to access geo-restricted content. For high-security protection, users should go for traditional VPN services or use Tor, Cloudflare suggests.

With that said, the company hasn’t clarified whether or not this applies to the paid tier Warp+ as well. In that case, it would be hard to justify the amount that Cloudflare wants to charge.

Anyway, you can enjoy the free VPN on your phone for casual stuff. It’s still better than not having a VPN at all. In the coming days, we’ll try to come up with more details on the speed tests and real-world performance of Cloudflare’s VPN.
