How to use VPN to avoid Gamban
Gambling blockers are slowly moving from User based blocking systems, Like Gamstop, to device blocking software, like Gamban and BetBlocker. Since avoiding Gamstop restrictions are very easy this days, with alternative casinos and using someone else’s account, Gamban tries to eliminate those options as well. But in today’s age, software blocking systems that are revolving around restricting certain IPs from accessing gambling websites, are very dated. Most devices come with built-in VPN services or ability to external VPN service provider. In this article I will try to explain how VPN works, is it safe to use and can you avoid Gamban with VPN.
What is VPN?
VPN’s have been around for a while now, but today I think it’s must-have tool even if you are not trying to avoid Gamban. Basically, VPN works as a middle man between your device and website or service you are trying to access. In more technical terms, VPN is encrypting your communication on a device you are using, sending your data through a secure tunnel via their own servers in different countries.
For example, NordVPN, my personal favorite VPN provider, has servers in more than 150 countries, giving you unlimited options to choose where your data goes through. Process is simple: Data you send, by loading a website or connecting to remote server by any means, goes through NordVPNs server first, they then send this data to Website from their own server, which can’t be traced back to you.
Why should I use VPN?
Every website, every product you search for, every message you send to your friends from your device is getting tracked one way or another. Company’s then sell your data to advertisers to target you with their products or make a “Profile” about, what you like, what you don’t like etc.
But this is what they say to the public. There has been many cases involving some of the largest companies. like Meta (Facebook) and Google, selling sensitive data about customers habits, also sharing their personal information which then can be used in various illegal activities.
That’s where VPN comes into play. While you are using VPN, any of you social activity can’t be traced back to you. If you value privacy as much as I do, you should use VPN for simple website visits as well.
How does VPN help avoid Gamban?
Well Gamban works by blocking your device IP or network IP from accessing gambling or trading websites. VPN as mentioned above, changes your IP address and connects you to servers via their own dedicated IPs. Therefore, Gamban system fails to block. It’s simple as that.
