    Can i stream on Hotel’s wifi with purevpn on?? why do i have to tell support every time before going on a new destination, i would just email once about all my destinations, so not all the time, i have to inform?

      Hi Sara,

      Yes, you can stream PureVPN on Hotel’s WiFi and you only need to tell our support dept only once before you leave your current destination, so we will not block your account as we usually do it, if account is used in another destination compare to where it was originally bought. If you have any another question feel free to ask 🙂
