What is a VPN?
A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a powerful internet privacy and encryption tool that safeguards your online data and anonymity.
Our ZERO-log VPN secures all of your web usage from 3rd party snoopers, protects you when using unsecured wi-fi hotspots, and can even be used to alter the way your physical location appears on the internet.
Simply put, TweakNews VPN is a perfect privacy tool, and is included for FREE with our Ultimate plan.
How Do I Purchase the TweakNews VPN?
We currently only bundle the VPN with our Ultimate Usenet account. Look for the plan that says Ultimate + VPN.
How Does a VPN Work?
A VPN creates an encrypted, end-to-end tunnel between your device and our dedicated servers. Once you’re connected to our ZERO-log VPN servers, your data is fully encrypted and secured all the way through to its final destination.
Since your data is fully protected until it reaches its destination, security and privacy are greatly enhanced.
What Are the Common Uses?
- Anonymity. Using a VPN obscures websites from seeing your true IP. We also don’t log any VPN traffic. Your communication and identity will remain private.
- Bypassing Firewalls. Do you believe in the Great Firewall? Neither do we. A free and open Internet is more than just a saying in our office.
- Access Websites and Videos from Anywhere. Information is power. Information should be available from anywhere around the globe.
- Security. Whether you are trying to fend off hackers or access sensitive information from an unsecured hotspot, our 256-bit encryption has you covered.
Should I Use a VPN with Usenet?
It isn’t necessary because all TweakNews accounts come with free SSL encryption.
Can Using a VPN Increase My Speed?
If your connection is being throttled, using a VPN can dramatically increase your speeds. Picking a server closer to your physical location and reducing the level of encryption are other strategies to increase VPN speeds.

How Do I Change the Password?
Your password is the same for our website, Usenet server, and VPN servers. If you are having trouble connecting to the VPN client, change your password, but be aware that it will change the password for all parts of your account.
