Most cord-cutters use a VPN on their preferred streaming device to ensure anonymity and protect their data.
This includes streaming devices such as the Amazon Firestick which is the most popular device available due to its low price point and jailbreaking abilities.
If you use a VPN in conjunction with various Streaming Apps and APKs, you likely want to know when your connection is secure.
In the past, many used VPNSafetyDot which provided a simple dot on your screen to notify you of your VPN connection status.
However, VPNSafetyDot recently updated its app and is now requiring payment for use.

It was only a matter of time before a replacement app came along and there is now a VPNSafetyDot alternative.
This is called VPN Monitor Dot and it works in the same fashion to provide users peace of mind when streaming.
