It allows you to hide your location, and tell the cyber world you are posting from somewhere else. Particularly useful if downloading movies etc. Can also allow you access to sites blocked within Thailand.
thanx, BB.

Although i use Astrill vpn and it works good so far, i would recommend you to get Expressvpn. It is a bit expensive but the best of all. Reason i subscribed for Astrill was i came across a good deal and made the purchase.

You're welcome, but credit where credit is due - it was Ginjaninja who recommended it first.

China is an absolute nightmare.....
Anyone got any recommendations for a good VPN that works in China? All the free ones I've tried don't work worth a damn. Heading back there in a week or so.

These sources indicate Witopia is a reliable option when dealing with the GFW, albeit slow:

Try looking out for Purevpn. I was going across a review page which listed it at the top for use in China.

I have downloaded Betternet but do not see how to use it!
When say I go into Pirate Bay what do I click either before or after clicking their web page to avoid detection?

I usually click before.

Be warned, Pirate Bay will continually give you warnings and try to sell it's own VPN. I assume a cookie will tell you that your old IP Address is still there, but I've checked, and it isn't.

OK, difficult, because I don't know how you're set up. I am using Chrome.
