Kaspersky’s VPN solution VPN Secure Connection (the name definitely needs some work) now sports additional functionality.

While the VPN has a free tier it is incredible affordable at R26.70 per month thanks to a special which is currently available.

If you are looking for a secure, fast VPN, then you might be interested in the improvements that have recently been made to Kaspersky’s solution.

For one, the network now boasts 2 000 servers in 53 regions. This means VPN Secure Connection is now available on every continent except Antarctica.

There are plans to grow this figure to 70 regions by the end of the year.

But the thing most people are using a VPN for nowadays is to get around geo-restrictions implemented by streaming platforms.

To that end, the US and UK catalogues from a variety of streaming platforms are available to more users.

“To expand the user’s experience and provide access to important news and information, Kaspersky’s VPN Secure Connection makes content from the US available on streaming platforms such as Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video, while content from the UK is available on BBC iPlayer. If the local catalog is not supported for the location, then the user has access to the US directory for Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Prime/Disney+ and the GB directory for BBC iPlayer,” Kaspersky explained.

We should point out that you will need a subscription or account to the aforementioned platforms in order to access content.

“Kaspersky’s team also widened the geography for Netflix. The streaming platform is now also available to users throughout Germany and Japan,” added Kaspersky.

In addition to these features, the iOS version of the app features a killswitch so that your internet connection is disabled should your VPN be disabled.

As mentioned Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection has both a free and premium tier so that you can test it out before you commit to spending money on a subscription.
