Want a free VPN Service – Here are 5
VPN ( Virtual Private Network ) has been around for quite some time, and while they are mostly paid services, and restricted to Companies and/or Professional Tech Junkies, there are few VPN services which are tailor made for the masses, and best of all – They are absolutely Free.
Here are a five of the Best Free-of-Cost VPN Services –
- Cloak VPN – Cloak is a very popular choice of most people as a VPN agent. The deal here is that you get a month of free trial, after which you need to pay just $1.99/month to continue availing its services. Installation is fairly simple – Register on the Cloak Website, install the app if you desire Mobile VPN, and enjoy. The company has also given an incentive to users wherein they can get additional data cloaking by simply tweeting about the company. The only drawback of this service is that its Apple Exclusive, which means, the software only works on Apple devices.
- Cyber Ghost VPN – IF you ever vist MakeUseOf.com, and search for VPN agents, its highly likely that you will see this client at the very top of the list. The reason is simple – Its globally compatible , that is, no matter what OS sofware you use , be it Android, iOS, MacOS, Windows, Linux , or anything else on the planet, Cyber Ghost will work, every single time. The app interface is very friendly, which only adds to its accolades.
Cyber Ghost comes in two flavors – Free and Paid. The difference is that , if you pick the Free version, you get access to 22 out of the 200+ servers, while the paid version gives you full access to every server under the Cyber Ghost Jurisdiction. The paid package for Cyber Ghost starts at $6.99/month. Another nifty feature of CYber Ghost is that, its one of the few sites that accept Bitcoin payments. With so much good in the software, I don’t see a reason to not give it a swing.
- Tunnel Bear VPN – If you are one of the artsy crowd, who looks at beauty before utility, then Tunnel Bear VPN is for you. A beautiful app, overall snazzy design, and a killer plan, means one thing – Go for it. This software is compatible with iOS, Android, PC and Mac. What you get is 500 MB of free data, after which, you will have to upgrade to Premium to continue availing Tunnel BEar and its Beauty as well. They have two plans on offer – $4.99/month or $49.99/year.
- VPNBook VPN service – Don’t go by the rather funny name, because this client is an absolute monster. And its not just me who is saying it, PC mag thinks so to. No wonder they gave it a 4/5 in their rating. I would recommend people with a lot of patience to go for this app, as installing it and getting it to work is a bit of a hassle. But if you are somone who have the patience to look for instruction online, then go ahead. To compensate for the rather hassle filled installation, VPNBook, has given a bot of respite for their users – No registration required.
VPNBook runs on the Big three OS ( Windows, Mac and Linux ), with no problems whatsoever, along with other devices running iOS and Android.
- HotSpot Shield VPN – Last but certainly not the least, we have Hotspot Shield VPN. This is the only VPN service in the world to get mentions from sites like CNN and The New York Times. Not only that, Hotspot Shield has also received numerous positive reviews from its Users as well. This client is available for Android, iOS, Windows and Mac. The app is so simple, that anyone can tell whether the VPN access is on/off. The security features in this software sends you automatic alerts if the site you are trying to visit is a Malware Hub. Probably the top selling point for this client is that both free and paid versions get almost the same features. The only point of annoyance I think, is the fact the free version runs ads as well, and you have to upgrade to Premium to go ad-free.
Well, this is it as far as the best VPN clients go. Hope you found this article informative,and stay tuned for more such articles right here.
