I have a sim card RAIN modem at home and had a Getflix subscription which enabled me to adjust the DNS on my iPad to watch BBC and Amazon Prime but it never allowed for US Netflix.

My Getflix subsciption has ended and I am looking for a new VPN which will allow me to watch BBC, Amazon Prime and US Netflix on my iPad.

Any suggestions?

Saw a review of FlixVPN on YouTube where they were able to watch US Netflix. I never tried as I am struggling to watch everything I am interested in watching in the local catalogue.

Windscribe works with US Netflix but not the rest. AFAIK Nord works with Netflix and prime but is too expensive. Happy with my lifetime Windscribe sub.

The app has been criticized in multiple reports over recent years. For example, in 2016 Australian researchers CSIRO found that SuperVPN was flagged as malware by 13 engines at VirusTotal, the third highest score out of a field of 234. They were mostly classing it as adware-like rather than anything truly dangerous, and that still means most engines thought it was safe (and as we write its VirusTotal score is zero), but this indicates the app may be doing things differently to many other VPNs.

A 2016 Vulners report listed many other SuperVPN vulnerabilities and problems. We have no idea if the report was accurate, and the vulnerabilities may have been fixed in the meantime, anyway, but this is still a concern.

There's another potential issue in the app's permissions. It needs access to Device & App History (get running apps, read sensitive log data), Identity and Contacts, Location, Photos/Media/Files, Storage, Wi-Fi Connection Information and Device ID and Call Information
. That covers the rights to see installed apps, browsing history, profile data and your file system.

I hear expressVPN can bypass Netflix
I've been considering using them one day and it will work with most Asus routers

I found them slow when used in conjunction with PiHole so never used it beyond the trial period.

Can't be slow, it a DNS proxy not a VPN, unless you enabled the VPN.

I use it with PI-Hole as well.

Its faster than 8 8 8 8 for me. Slower than 1 1 1 1

Sure if you pay with your data. I was lucky to get a lifetime to Windscribe last year for $47 so it already paid for itself. Basically using it for free now. They don't log your data and I can follow the owner online and see what he does and say. Will grab a static IP sometime to support them though. Great service.

Does Windscribe require you to login every time your IP changes? This is why I don't like SmartDNS.

Netflix was definitely loading slower. It is possible I enabled the VPN, will have to play around with it again.
