We get it. Watching wrestling is pretty awesome. So, when we say that you need to protect yourself while watching it, we’re not talking about wearing a helmet or full body armor when you’re either ringside or watching from the TV. No, we’re talking about the dangers that come from streaming wrestling online, and why it’s essential to have the right protection in place. That way, you can chokeslam (virtually) any hackers who are trying to get your information and throw your ISP’s snoopy noses out the ring by blocking it all. And all it takes is a simple VPN.

Everything is Online

You can pretty much do everything online, from buying your groceries to talking to friends and family to finding the best wrestling news. And with so much available on the internet, it’s easy to forget that your IP address is still exposed when you are online. Your service provider will know what sites you’ve been visiting, so if you’ve been streaming any wrestling matches, they’ll know.

Even search giants like Google keep track of things – ever noticed why you get loads of wrestling associated ads pop up on the screen when you’re online? Yup, thanks, Google. It all makes it difficult really – as we all move to an online world; how do we keep ourselves safe and our information private?  

And Why is it so Important?

When you’re using the internet, you can be tracked by the companies you’re visiting. You’ve probably consented to cookies without noticing. But when you’re on forums, websites, and streaming sites for wrestling, or any other activity, your IP address is exposed. However, you can protect that with a VPN, which disguises it. The best thing is that it also gives you added security from hackers and cybercriminals, especially if you’ve been on any streaming sites that you probably shouldn’t have gone to!

If you’re not protected, there’s also the danger of people accessing your communications, too. Have you been on any forums or instant messaging with friends, talking about WWE? Without the right protection, these conversations could be accessed.

Protection is Easy

It’s even easier (and quicker) than raising a Dwayne Johnson eyebrow. When you install a VPN, it gives you the ultimate online freedom. It hides your IP address, so no web browsers, service providers, or hackers will know where you’re originating from. You can see this informative VPN infographic to get a full picture of what a VPN is and just how a VPN can protect you.  The latest encryption technology keeps you safe from all hackers and opens up many new possibilities. 

Imagine if you had gone away abroad and taken your tablet or computer with you to make sure you don’t miss a Royal Rumble or important grudge match? Then imagine the horror to find out that you’re restricted because that site doesn’t work in that country. With a VPN, you can select a site that will grant you access so you can enjoy watching wrestling from wherever you are.

Wrestling When You Want

Have you ever noticed that sometimes a website might be blocked? With a VPN, you can work around that as you can set your IP address to come from somewhere else, such as a country that isn’t restricted. You can do it all while enjoying the same bandwidth speeds you currently have (it’s a common myth that a VPN can slow it down). Not only that, if you’re downloading any wrestling content or using torrenting sites, you can do it via the VPN with complete anonymity. Nobody will know that you’ve been on the sites or got hold of the content, so you can enjoy it without worry.

When you use a VPN, you can often find better prices when shopping online. So, if you’re looking for travel tickets to a venue, tickets to a match, or pay-per-view content, it’s worth trying it with a VPN to see how much more you could be saving. 

If you just want to make sure you can access wrestling content while you’re away from home, then a VPN is the way to go. But you should bear in mind that it’s also the perfect tag-team companion when you’re at home and using it daily too. It offers greater security and will protect your personal information from third parties. That way, you can enjoy watching wrestling, completely confident that your details are safe and secure, no spam will be coming your way, and hackers will just be rebounded off the ring.
