TheFreeVPN

Update 5/16/2011 – The TheFreeVPN service is not available anymore! You should check other hide IP tools.

TheFreeVPN is a new free service that lets users surf the web privately also allowing them to bypass internet censorship. Unfortunately, it comes with a price: annoying ads.

Main features

With TheFreeVPN you can:

  • Access blocked websites from within a corporate environment.
  • Watch Hulu.com, Pandora.com, ABC.com, BBC.co.uk from anywhere.
  • Protect yourself from snoopers at Wi-Fi hotspots, hotels, airports, corporate offices and ISP hubs.
  • Hide your IP address for your privacy online.

Get started

To get started all you need to do is to install the FreeVPN client software from the website and select one of the available VPN servers to get connected anonymously. You can choose from 3 US servers (one special for watching Hulu), 3 UK servers and 1 Canada server (this is the only free Canada VPN that I know!).

After connecting to a server you can check your IP address on XMyIP. Below, you can see the results for the Canada server.

The dark side

TheFreeVPN is not completely free. The client that you install changes your browser homepage to http://thefreevpn.com/ and every time you open the browser or a new tab you are redirected to a certain ad page. This is quite annoying!

To be honest, I prefer completely free VPN accounts (with no extra features 🙂 ) like the accounts offered by HideIpVPN.com. Anyway, for those seeking for free Canadian VPN, TheFreeVPN is a great solution!

Important! This service is only available for Windows operating systems.

    I do not recommend this service.
    The ads are driving one crazy.
    But Canadian IP is the only good thing about it

    Hi, I used a free hotspot shield VPN service from canada http://www.freevpn.ca , it is also PPTP based, no need to install any kind of software, pretty convenient and it is 100% canada IP, FYI.
