Final thoughts

Most cord-cutters use VPNs for these free streaming applications, add-ons, and paid IPTV services as these tools are at times from insecure servers. You should protect yourself with a VPN when streaming so that no one can log your IP Address. The IP Address can be used to track from your streaming location, thus compromising your privacy and identity. Since the movies streamed come in large HD files, a faster VPN will be ideal, if you find a VPN that has a strict no-log policy, the better.
