Among the various methods to accessing American Netflix, the browser extension Hola reigns king. With over 47 million users and free access, it seems almost too good to be true. That’s because it is. In a recent interview with TorrentFreak, Frederick Brennan, the owner of 8chan message board, had this to say:
“When a user installs Hola, he becomes a VPN endpoint, and other users of the Hola network may exit through his internet connection and take on his IP. This is what makes it free: Hola does not pay for the bandwidth that its VPN uses at all, and there is no user opt out for this,”
In simpler terms, anyone can essentially take on your virtual identity through Hola. For example, if someone were to be downloading child pornography by using Hola, they could take on your IP, and appear as you. The same goes for virtually any other cyber crime you can dream up. We highly recommend uninstalling Hola from your computer.
We know that Hola is very popular among the users of our website, and we are as sad to see this news as you are. Hola was most definitely one of the easier ways of accessing unblocked content around the globe.
With that being said, we would like to promote an alternative to our NetflixDNSCodes.com members. As many of you may know, we are avid supporters of the Unblock-Us service. It is completely secure, 100% private, and allows you to access every region of Netflix (including the American Netflix) with no loss in streaming quality.
