Netflix is known for its strict policy against VPN use. This policy is enforced through a variety of methods, including but not limited to IP address tracking and blocking VPN connections from certain countries.

In December of 2017, Netflix announced that it would start blocking VPN connections from certain countries in an effort to prevent subscribers from using the service to bypass geo-restrictions. At the time, Netflix stated that it would “continue to work with providers to ensure that their customers can enjoy the same great experience no matter where they are.”

While Netflix has the ability to block VPN connections at any time, it has not yet done so. This leaves the door open for VPN providers to work with Netflix to allow its users to bypass geo-restrictions.

In the meantime, Netflix subscribers who want to use a VPN should research which VPN providers work with Netflix and use those providers.
