I'm an even bigger dummy...this is probably a a stupid question, but I've spent the last 2 hours trying to find an answer....how do you use a VPN?
I currently have the free Hola VPN and the free VPN that comes with the Opera browser. I know those probably aren't the best for whatever reason (though I'm not sure on any details)...but even if I were to buy one, how do you even use it? Do you just turn it on on the browser you use to download a torrent file? Or is it important to keep it on while you are downloading/seeding videos? Or is it more complicated- do you have to like press buttons and stuff on your uTorrent application? Or is it something else?
OR PERHAPS someone might just redirect me to an article/video/post about using VPN for porn for NOOBS like me?
Usually you install the VPN app for the provider you are using. After you have started your computer, you can open the VPN app (if it doesn't open on startup), then choose what server you want to connect to. Once the VPN is connected, all your traffic is sent through the VPN until you disconnect from the VPN again. It is a separate app from any browser that you may be using and ALL internet traffic is sent through it when it is turned on.
