It’s an easy way to make your online life easier, but it’s not without its problems.
Here’s how to connect a VPN to your local Wi-Fi network in your area.1.
Find out where you’re located.
You can search Google Maps, and you can check your local ABC News, ABC News Mobile, ABCNews.com and ABC News app for locations.
If you can’t find it, ask around.2.
Check out the service.
Look at what they’re offering.
Most VPN services offer a “free trial” or a “up to 30-day” subscription, so you can try it out for free.
They might also offer a discounted rate for users who sign up for their service with a valid email address.
If they’re not selling you a $5 credit or an annual fee, they’re usually offering free trials.
If it’s a service that offers an unlimited amount of data for $5 per month, it might be a good deal.
If not, they might charge you more for unlimited data.3.
Check to see if the service is working properly.
If the VPN service says “it’s not working”, it means that they’re out of order.
For example, you can sign up to the VPN company with your email address, but if you’re trying to connect with someone on the same Wi-FI network, the VPN might say that they can’t connect to you.
If that happens, ask them to check the order and try again.4.
Check the connection speed.
If there’s an issue, the service might be slow or unavailable.
The service provider might offer a service speed report.
It’s often a good idea to download it and use it.5.
Try the service again.
This could take a few days or a few weeks depending on the speed and reliability of the VPN.
If things go well, you might be able to log in to your account and continue to access your newsfeed, news and sports feeds.
