For the fastest connection
The smaller the distance, the faster your connection. If you want to have the fastest VPN connection possible, connect to the server closest to you. This may be a country or a city nearby.
For even more security
Connect to one of our MultiHop locations if you want an extra kick to your security. This will put your connection through two servers instead of one to improve your privacy even more.
For avoiding censorship
Staying or traveling in countries where governments censor the internet infringes on our right to freedom of expression and speech. Use obfuscated servers to bypass censorship and explore the free web wherever you are.
Get a local IP and security benefits with an Australia VPN
Data protection from snoops
Problem: Your online activity benefits big data companies, your internet service provider (ISP), and the government.
Solution: A VPN encrypts (hides under code) your internet traffic and protects it from any extra pairs of eyes prying on what you do online.
Complete privacy online
Problem: Your IP and location can help data giants build profiles on you (your interests, opinions, health searches, etc.)
Solution: A VPN changes your IP address and hides your location so that no one knows where you’re browsing from or who you are.
Safe access to public Wi-Fi
Problem: Public Wi-Fi is lovely but it’s not secure, and Wi-Fi hotspots are easily faked and compromised by hackers.
Solution: A VPN connection encrypts your data before it leaves your device, making your connection impossible to spy on.
Home internet wherever you go
Problem: The internet you can access changes when traveling to different countries because of restrictions and censorship.
Solution: Connect to a VPN server in your country and browse as if you were back home, with access to your favorite content and media sites.
Cheaper online shopping
Problem: Online retailers, rental, and airline services often adjust prices according to your location.
Solution: Log out of the site, clear your cookies, and use a VPN to change your location to hunt for cheaper deals all around!
Entertainment with a VPN
Problem: Your ISP can slow (throttle) your connection down if you’re streaming shows or downloading files.
Solution: Connect to a VPN to stream your favorite shows in the privacy of your home without lag or internet throttling.
No censorship or internet restrictions
Problem: Governments around the world censor and limit access to content and online media to control information.
Solution: Use a VPN to bypass all internet restrictions and enjoy a free and open web.
Security for your home fortress
Problem: With Wi-Fi devices like phones, PCs, Roombas, smart TVs, and fridges, you’re easily exposed to cyberthreats.
Solution: Install a VPN on your router to protect your entire home at once.
Premium vs. free VPN
Imagine locking your front door and handing the robber the keys to your house. Sounds silly? Well, it’s the same as using a free VPN. Free VPNs will collect and sell your personal data and bombard you with ads while providing a mediocre connection. Why? Because every VPN service needs to maintain its staff and service, and it’s either your data and ads or a simple subscription. Regarding quality and your privacy – premium VPNs always beat free.
The decision is in your hands

Thank you; I do hope so because SS is the best VPN I’ve had for a long time & would be a pity if I had to get another one that doesn’t do this every time I use it.— Albert Steptoe #BrexitGotDone (@Albert_Steptoe) June 4, 2022

Are VPNs legal in Australia?
Using a VPN is legal in Australia. Of course, any crimes commited while using a VPN will still be treated as crimes.
Is torrenting illegal in Australia?
Torrenting itself isn’t illegal in Australia. However, using torrenting for piracy (downloading movies, games, etc. from questionable sources) is illegal.
Why should I use a VPN in Australia?
A VPN is good for watching Netflix in Australia. It’s also good for avoiding ISP tracking and data collection, and it helps keep you secure from malware and hacking attacks which are on the rise in the country.
Should I use a free VPN in Australia?
No, you shouldn’t use a free VPN in Australia or anywhere else. Free VPNs are in all ways (but price) inferior to premium VPNs, being slower, offering fewer servers and locations, and lacking technical sophistication. At the same time, they have incentives to throttle speed to make you switch to premium plan, collect user data for sale, or outright work like malware.
