VPNs offer tons of perks, but who actually stands to gain the most by using a Polish VPN server?
Here are the kinds of benefits you get to enjoy if you use a VPN server to get a new Polish IP address when you’re in the country:
Poland might not seem like the kind of country where surveillance is a problem, but appearances can be deceiving.
The government actually has laws in place that allow intelligence agencies to get “unrestrained” access to Polish citizens’ data from any institution. And they don’t even need a prior approval from a court to do it.
Even worse, the NSA was (and probably still is) able to spy on Polish citizens.
That’s not all – your ISP also harms your privacy by logging everything you do online. They might even sell that information to advertisers for a profit during shady backroom deals.
Oh, and cybercriminals can use your real IP address to learn personal stuff about you:
The good news is that using a Polish VPN server completely protects your privacy. The service hides your IP address and encrypts your traffic, making you nearly anonymous online.
That usually happens when you’re on unsecured WiFi (networks with no passwords) since there’s no encryption to protect your traffic.
But, unfortunately, secured networks aren’t safe either.
If they can’t stand up to them, what chance do you have?
Well, you actually have one – using a VPN. The service encrypts all your traffic, making it completely indecipherable to any hacker who tries to monitor it.
Bandwidth throttling is when your ISP lowers your speeds on purpose – either to prevent network congestion, to save money on data storage costs, or “convince” you to buy a pricier service upgrade.
It’s easy for them to do that since your ISP can see what you do online. All they need to do is inspect your data packets to see what types of services you’re using.
Well, when you use a Poland VPN server, they can’t do that anymore. The VPN encrypts your traffic, making it impossible for your ISP to spy on it.
At work or school and can’t access websites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter?
It’s because the network admin restricts access to those platforms on the workplace or school’s network. Basically, they assign traffic rules to your IP address – the address you get when you connect to the network.
You can bypass that by using your mobile data, but why not use a Polish VPN server instead?
It lets you bypass any firewall by hiding your IP address, it’s cheaper, and it also hides all your activity from the network admins.
And watching your favorite Netflix show on your laptop or computer is way more convenient than squinting at it on your mobile.
Don’t need to unblock any foreign content, and just want to secure your privacy and data?
Then you can use a Poland VPN server to get better speeds. Since the server is in the same country as you, it’ll take less time for data packets to travel between your device and the VPN server.
So, you’ll likely get smoother speeds – especially if you’re in the same city as the server.
Of course, there are many other factors that can lower your VPN speed, but the client-server distance is one of the most important ones.
A DoS/DDoS attack is when someone floods your network with a ton of unwanted traffic and requests, basically forcing it offline.
Are DoS/DDoS attacks a serious problem in Poland?
They’re not widespread, but they do happen.
Hackers have previously targeted a Polish airline with them, and hacktivists even managed to take down government websites with DDoS attacks.
So, if that can happen, what’s to say someone who has a grudge against you won’t take you offline with a DoS/DDoS attack? Especially since they’re so cheap.
But if you connect to a Poland VPN server, you can hide your real IP address. So, nobody can use it to track down your network.
Whether you’re a Polish expat, work or travel abroad, or simply someone from a different country, here’s why you should use a Polish VPN server:
While there aren’t a lot of Polish job boards, there are many clients who are looking for Polish freelancers on other job boards like UpWork and Freelancer.
And some of them use a filter that only allows people from Poland to apply to their gigs.
That’s understandable, but also a huge shame. That filter might prevent people from other countries who know Polish from applying to those jobs.
If you use a Poland VPN server, that’s no longer the case, though. The service will hide your real IP address, and make it seem like you “live” in Poland, so you’ll be able to freely apply to any Polish jobs you want.
Not all Polish websites are available outside the country, and some of them only make some content available abroad.
Some examples include CHILI, Ipla.tv, and nowa.tv. Besides that, there’s also stuff like the Polish libraries of Netflix or HBO GO Poland.
Why can’t you access that content outside Poland?
It’s due to the content providers using geo-restrictions. And they use them to comply with copyright and licensing regulations.
But if you connect to a Polish VPN server, you can hide your geo-location, and make it seem like you are from Poland. So, you’ll completely bypass all geo-blocks.
Bummed out you can’t play together with your online friends on a Polish gaming server because it’s not available in your region?
Annoyed that huge ping times and lag are ruining your scores?
No problem – as long as the gaming server is in Poland, you can optimize your speeds if you use a Polish VPN server.
Your traffic will get to the gaming server much faster that way. And the VPN will also hide your IP address, making it seem like you are in Poland. So, no region locks will get in the way of your gaming sessions.
A Polish IP address could potentially help you combat online price discrimination – seeing different prices based on your geo-location.
So, all you need to do is connect to a Polish VPN server to make it seem like you live in Poland.
