If you watch a lot of YouTube videos you might have noticed a huge increase in VPN promotions on this platform. There are basically two ways these ads are served to you. The first one is the ad that comes before, during, or after the video, separate from the video itself. And the second one is the one where the person in that YouTube video you’re watching talking about different VPN providers. Ads are all around us and they have entered our conscious and subconscious lives in ways you cannot even imagine. And when we say you cannot even imagine we really mean that the issues that are tied to them are relevant and important. We will talk about that later, for now, let’s focus on some other aspects of this intriguing question.
YouTube is a digital platform and you can access it via your computer, phone, or smart tv. This means that you have at least some technical knowledge and are thus a member of the target audience. If you use one digital product, you’re more likely to use another, and so forth. This is one of the reasons why you’re seeing so many VPN promotions on YouTube. Some of them are meant to increase the “brand visibility and recognition” so that when the issue arises you might say the first product that comes to mind. And it will probably be the one you saw last week while having dinner and watching some YouTube clips.
The issues of privacy and security have become more prominent in recent years and increased demand for solutions in these areas. This is where VPNs come into the picture. After all, The VPN Lab is a site dedicated to bringing you all the relevant information about these products. And yes, we take the same commission as the people you’re seeing on YouTube. However, we also provide a lot more data points to make the right decisions. And some reviews and articles are there to warn you about possible scams and really bad products. Just imagine buying a VPN subscription and then finding out that the app is actually selling off your data to third parties. Something we talked about in this article: How VPNs Can Save You From Data Brokers.
The ugly truth is that in this day and age, you’re really left with no choice when it comes to your online life. And if you want to make sure no one is using your data or trying to steal your identity, VPNs are a must. So, actually, all these YouTube promotions might actually not be so bad after all. You will probably see ads for the “big three”, the most popular VPNs on the market. You can read our reviews of NordVPN, ExpressVPN, and Surfshark and find out more about their features and whether they’re right for you. However, all three of them are great choices. And the pervasive ad culture is something we must change as a society and work to achieve the balance between oversaturation and useful information.
