Even though free VPN services are not always the best choice when it comes to security and anonymity, they can be successfully used for unlocking geo-restricted sites like Facebook, YouTube, Hulu, etc.
Most of the time free VPNs require registration and offer limited service. Some offer a limited number of MB, others a single server location, limited speed or restrictive usage.
Here, at how-to-hide-ip.info, we have listed several such services (7 Free Online VPN Services, VPN Raptor, VPN Reactor, UltraVPN, etc.), but as they are rapidly changing (some switch to paid version, other simply go away), an update is necessary.
Thus, here are the best free VPN services that are available at this time:
ProXPN has the advantage to offering no limitation of data transfer but only one USA IP is available. You need to register and account using an email address and install the OpenVPN of ProXPN to access either the package fee (more IP addresses) or free access.
SecurityKiss offers more countries, but data transfer is limited daily. No registration is needed. You can switch between five addresses (US – UK – DE – PL – FR) and TCP or UDP ports. Just download the OpenVPN client, to start to enjoy free VPN (no mail, no info required). Some protocols such as the Usenet are blocked.
Hotspot Shield is still widely used all over the world. The ad-based, free VPN service provides one US IP address and does not require registration. There are no bandwidth limitation and the speed is good for general use. Downsides: the ads and the reduced number of locations and IPs.
There are also other free VPN services that can be easily found on forums and different sites, but the ones listed above seem more trustworthy than others. If you are looking for a free VPN, try them all and find out what is the most suitable for you.
It is important to understand that free VPN services can not fully replace paid, premium, VPNs like HideMyAss, ibVPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, PrivateInternetAccess. A premium VPN service offers unlimited speed and traffic, various server locations, many IP addresses, good support.
