Free VPN


Demand for VPN services is increasing at rapid pace as more and more restrictions are forced upon us. Here are few situations where VPN are good options

  • Goventments are blocking sites and you want to access them
  • People trying to hide themselves from spying eyes
  • Accessing services that are not yet available in your country
  • Connecting to secure services when browsing from insecure or public wifi connections.
  • Illegal media downloaders are getting notices from their internet service providers and they want to not get traced.
  • Accessing links that redirect according to visitors locations

VPNs are effective in all above situations and more but you have to be careful while using these VPN services as many can be dangerous to your security. Some of VPN make money by selling your data to third party services. Some have been elleged with spoofing on their clients.

I personally suggest going for some renowned and reliable paid VPN option as it is more secure to use.
