With the increase in the number of people using alternatives to cable TV packages, there has been a rise in the use of media centre software. One that is now taking all the hype is Stremio. Stremio is a media centre application that can be used to manage and stream media on smartphones, desktop PCs and tablets.

Stremio works similar to Kodi and Plex, but the app is easier and nicer. The software also allows you to install 3rd party add-ons which can either be ‘official’ or ‘unofficial.’

Stream Anonymously on Stremio

While Stremio provides great convenience, there’s every need to exercise caution when streaming with the software. First, the Stremio uses Bit Torrent technology. This means that whenever using Stremio, your IP address is publicly broadcast. With that, your ISP and other third-party organisations can know what you are doing online.

Apart from your privacy, you may also end up on the wrong side of the law by streaming copyrighted content. For these and more reasons, you need to use a VPN whenever streaming with Stremio.

A VPN encrypts all your traffic and then sends it through a secure tunnel to a VPN server. In the process, you are given a new identity which makes you anonymous while streaming online. With that, you can have the freedom to stream without worries.

However, all VPNs are not made equal and therefore you need to choose your VPN well. IPVanish is the best starting point if you are an avid streamer. Actually, the VPN is usually referred to as the best VPN for streaming services. This is because of its super speeds, zero logs and many servers.
