Why Do You Need A VPN to Watch Disney Plus?

A VPN, also known as a Virtual Private Network is an amazing privacy tool that safeguards your online activities and even changes your IP.

As Disney Plus has not launched its service globally yet, changing your IP to a region where the service is available allows you to access Disney Plus from anywhere.

As you change your IP address to the U.S, systems at Disney identify you as someone visiting from the U.S and hence allow you to access the Disney Plus streaming platform. This is why it is important to have a VPN to watch Disney Plus on PC/Laptop.

Can I Watch Disney+ on PC/Laptop with a Free VPN?

Team ScreenBinge strictly discourages the use of free VPN services. If you get a free VPN its very unlikely that it will work and bypass sites like Disney Plus.

Come to think of it, why would someone offer free services when millions of dollars are required to set up a service? Most of the free VPN don’t even encrypt data your data as per research, in fact, downloading such services may mean that these apps gather your data and sell it to advertisers.

So think twice before going for something free! It’s better to get a paid and working service for the entire year than to cling on to a service that seldom works.
