Why is VPN Necessary for Streaming Netflix?

Netflix is accessible worldwide. But, certain media content on Netflix is geo-restricted in some countries due to various reasons. To access those restricted Netflix videos, you must install and use a VPN on your Chromebook. In addition, VPN also encrypts your online activities and prevents others from tracking.
