FAQs about watching Love Island from abroad

Do I need a VPN if I’m in the UK?

While you can watch Love Island without a VPN from within the UK, we’d recommend using one anyway. Various Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have been known to reduce your internet speeds if they decide you’re streaming too much. A VPN hides your activities so this kind of restriction becomes more difficult for ISPs to justify. Further, VPNs prevent most types of Man-in-the-Middle attacks and greatly increase your online security.
