Cybersecurity company PureVPN released a new VPN app tailor-made for Apple TV 4K.

A virtual private network (VPN) works by providing you with a new IP address while simultaneously encrypting your data in a line of military-grade coding. This makes it so that anyone collecting your data will be unable to read it without a confidential encryption key.

Essentially, if you use PureVPN on your Apple TV, you can protect your data from any potential hackers on your network and stop your ISP from viewing your activity.

However, security isn’t the only use for a VPN on your smart TV. A VPN also allows you to access streaming sites and watch regional content. Since it has locations in 65-plus countries, you should be able to connect from anywhere around the world.

A VPN will always slow down your connection speed a little bit, but since the app has been tailor-made for streaming, it can support up to 4K streaming without too many problems, provided you’re using a nearby server location.

The app was released just 12 hours after the launch of third-party app support for the new Apple TVs.

The company built and tested its app in anticipation of Apple’s third-party app support, making sure it was ready to install and use on launch day. It underwent extensive beta testing prior to its launch, to make sure there were no major bugs or security vulnerabilities.

“We owe a huge thank you to our beta community, whose feedback has been invaluable in refining the app’s performance. Now that we have officially gone live, we’re excited to deliver an enhanced streaming experience for Apple TV users,” PureVPN said in an interview with TechRadar. “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the PureVPN Apple TV app, a development that our user community has been eagerly anticipating for years.”
