Why Do You Need a VPN to Access Disney+ in the Philippines?

A VPN service replaces your IP address with the country where you want to connect. This way the site identifies you as a user from a non-restricted region and lets you access. This changes your virtual location. So you might be in the Philippines but the site will be tricked into believing you’re in the USA, hence letting you access Disney+.

However, that’s not all a VPN can do, it can unblock endless international channels for you and all the streaming services as well. You can watch channels such as American Netflix, BBC iPlayer, CBC, CNBC, HBO Max, Stan and so much more!

These are just a few of the many benefits of a VPN, the most important job of a VPN is to encrypt your information so that it remains secure from messy hands and it moreover avoids your ISP from throttling your Internet speed.

Can I watch Disney+ in the Philippines with a Free VPN

You can try a free VPN but the chances of it unblocking Disney+ are very thin. We tried a number of popular free VPN services like Tunnel bear and Windscribe in our Disney+ and Netflix testing. They all failed to unblock consistently and has limited bandwidth.

In fact, only a few paid VPN services can bypass Disney+, so having that kind of expectation from a free VPN does not make sense.

Furthermore, Free VPN services have no monetary incentives, which may mean they sell your data to advertisers. According to research majority of free VPN services don’t even encrypt your data.
