Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Hoxx VPN is a freemium VPN service that allows using a limited VPN for free and a fully-featured paid VPN for various devices. The company-owner of Hoxx VPN is called “VPN1 LLC” and it’s located in the US. Hoxx apps are available for all OSes. Proxy plugins are available for Chrome and Firefox browsers.

Whoer VPN Review

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
There is not so much information about Whoer VPN. The Cypriot company WHOIX Ltd was registered in 2016, and it has a Russian background. However, the company was created long ago. Since 2008 the company’s website has been specializing in providing a variety of information about a customer by using an IP address and data transferred by web-browser.

VPN Gate Review: network of independent servers

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
VPN Gate is not an ordinary VPN service. It’s a free distributed net of servers run by volunteers and linked to a single center. Still, there aren’t servers, like in traditional data centers, but ordinary computers with special software. You also can launch VPN Gate on your PC and join this network. Other users’ traffic will go through your computer. The service was launched in 2013 and it has been so popular that over 3 million connections are registered per day, while 174.000 Tb of data was...

VPNBook Review: Slow and Insecure

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
VPNBook is probably the freest of all free VPN services. What do we know about it? VPNBook is free. VPNBook is unpretentious. VPNBook does not offer applications for any platform. VPNBook keeps logs. I have thoroughly tested this provider and I can confidently say what it is. Which of its statements are true and which are false, what it is good for and what is not. I even tried to install it on Android and iOS. And I did it! But… But first things first. Use quick navigation for convenience:...

Unblock-US Review

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Unblock-US is good at bypassing geo-restricted content when watching Netflix, Hulu and other streaming video services. But it is not user-friendly. Unblock-US for streaming is not a VPN and even not a proxy. Technically, it does not change an IP-address, as well as it does not create a VPN tunnel or encrypts bandwidth. That tech has nothing in common with Virtual Private Network technology . But that is not all. Unblock-US has a “real” VPN called “Smart VPN”. It also does not encrypt traffic in...

Betternet Review

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Betternet is no longer a free VPN. Their free program is closed in return for software from sponsors.

But do not hurry to get upset! In this review, I will teach you how to use Betternet for free more than 7 trial days ! However, only on Windows. If you need a free VPN for other platforms, get...

FrootVPN Review: Exploit-Proof but Slow

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
FrootVPN claims to be the best VPN service. A bold claim. And it is a good reason to update my review and test this provider unbiasedly once more. FrootVPN is based in the offshore jurisdiction of Seychelles. However, its country of origin is Ukraine. This affordable VPN (although it doesn’t have a free plan) offers a good range of countries but only has an app for Windows. It is possible to set it up for other devices manually, using settings for three VPN protocols of your choice. If you are...

Hola VPN Review: Free, Unlimited but not a VPN

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
No free VPN provider is perhaps larger and more scandalous than Hola VPN. It’s a great cause to try it out, analyze its facilities and draw an unbiased conclusion. What have I expected from Hola before preparing this review? Unique P2P VPN technology Almost unrestricted free version Wide choice of locations Fast speed No ads Actually, I thought Hola VPN to be #1 nominee to be called the best free VPN . How wrong I was! But one thing at a time. Hola – VPN or fake? We’ve already highlighted that...

July 12, 2021
proXPN is a primitive and paid VPN service with a free trial. The VPN is headquartered in the Netherlands. It has been providing its service for 9 years already.

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
SlickVPN is a small American VPN service which seems to be a handy tool for ensuring high privacy.
