What is a PureVPN Browser Extension?


The PureVPN browser extension is one of the lightest and simplest ways to connect your web browser – whether it be Chrome, Firefox, or Edge – to a proxy server. And with the flick of a switch, you can easily turn the plugin on and off as you please while you’re browsing the web. However, there is one thing to take note of: The extension only protects your web browser and nothing else on your device. This means that other apps, games, and tools will still use a direct, unencrypted internet connection. If you want to protect them, you’ll need to install the native PureVPN app. Click this 👉 link to download the PureVPN app now.


For what purpose can it be used for?


The extension is extremely useful for unblocking region-restricted streaming services and online TV channels. Despite most streaming services’ ban against most free VPNs, PureVPN continues to provide exceptional streaming quality and instant access to all your TV channels and other blocked services in your region. Just install the Chrome extension and start streaming anything you want from anywhere in the world.
