What free VPNs are you using?

Recommended Posts

The Porn Hub one works quite well. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/VPN Hub - the tech guys behind this know their stuff.

Browser extension VPNs are not true virtual private networks;  they're just proxies and don't offer encryption - which makes them a bit faster to the detriment of security. 

Apparently the majority of them route your traffic via China so big Xi Jinping knows I watch Thistle.  The shame!

If your plan is to watch UK telly abroad or US Netflix then you can do no wrong with this: https://tinyurl.com/WatchUKTellyAbroad 

It has real VPNs all over the world and uses your DNS to disguise your location making it much faster. 

Or you can install the Opera browser.  It has a VPN built in (proxy).  You can't choose country X, Y or Z though - just the continent.

I have Windscribe and find it works well.  Limit of 2GB/month for the free service but you can have more than one account if you need more.

Cheers, just signed up for the free two week trial. $5 a month after which isn't too unreasonable...Seems to be working fine.

UK telly primarily but US Netflix is handy too.

Cheers

I'm on to my 3rd year with it.  Paid $24.90 for 24 Months.     They have an email system where if you ignore them a few times the price comes right down.    Trial a few of the smart dns ones - should be enough to last you a few months, then if you fancy going that route, pick the best value.

Honestly, I wouldn't bother with a free VPN.

I'm using Nord VPN. I got a 2 year subscription for £5.

But if you really must, try CyberGhost, I used it for a couple of years and never had a problem with it. You can't download using it, though, unless you pay a subscription. I switched to Nord because you can't use the free version of CyberGhost with an Amazon Firestick.

yeah - for the meagre monthly cost of what a good VPN is ie NordVPN or ExpressVPN, I would happily pay for it than go through the hassle of looking for something substandard but free.....

Agreed.

I know that some people balk at the thought of paying £50+ for a VPN so I can understand why they don't plump for it.

I was like that... which is why I purchased it on eBay for a fiver. ;)

How the fuck can they sell NordVPN subscription for £5 a year !?
When NordVPN themselves charge 2.99 a month.

Looks like they must be selling account details for single account to multiple users ?
Though if it works....

Pretty much.

You know what eBay are like, they are extremely aggressive when it comes to tearing down listings. If there was even the slightest whiff of it being illegal then listings like that one would be tore down.
