What is a VPN?

This post is also available in: Spanish

When using the US Unlocked Card as a form of payment on U.S. websites we always recommend to be connected over VPN from a U.S. IP address.

Why Do You Need a VPN?

  • What is it?

    VPN means Virtual Private Network. It is a method used to add security and privacy to private and public networks. A VPN connection works as a tunnel and converts your non U.S. IP address to a U.S. IP address.

  • Why do I need it?

    A VPN connection protects your computer and communications on the internet against hackers and security breaches and gives you access to websites that block purchases from non U.S. IP addresses.

  • How do I use it?

    Use any of the recommended VPN providers below and download and install the software. Enable the connection each time before you use your card. To check whether your VPN is working you can go to whatismyipaddress.com. The IP location will need to be somewhere in the USA.
