Millions of users who downloaded “free” VPN software to bypass territorial content restrictions have unwittingly had their residential IPs hijacked by these VPN providers (through the terms of service) and then sold to the highest bidder – usually other VPNs who then sell these residential IPs as a premium priced option to by-pass existing VPN detection. This “premium” service enables users to access territorially restricted content by pretending to be an “undetectable” residential IP in a specific geographical territory.
Whether you’re a consumer, content owner, rightsholder or OTT provider, learn how geolocation fraud via hijacked residential IPs is threatening the entire content delivery ecosystem and how you can stop it!
