TunnelBear Review

Dean Chester
July 29, 2021
Pros of TunnelBear Cons of TunnelBear Free plan Owns its DNS servers Colourful animated UI Supports all major platforms Kill Switch Unstable speeds 500 Mb per month for free Leaks unprotected traffic Doesn’t support certain modern platforms No settings for alternative VPN clients and routers Limited functionality on iOS TunnelBear is one of the most popular VPN providers with a free plan. Though its popularity has somewhat decreased by 2020, right now the provider recovers its past demand. Why do people like TunnelBear? The main reason for it is that it has a full-functionality free plan. To many customers, it’s also important that the provider has modern settings that allow using torrents and bypassing censorship more efficiently. TunnelBear is a freemium (free + premium) VPN. It means that its financial model is based on drawing users to the premium plan through the free one. What other peculiarities does TunnelBear have? 500 Mb of traffic per month for free; Incredible graphical...

MULLVAD REVIEW: Fast VPN with unusual features

July 24, 2021
Pros of Mullvad Cons of Mullvad High speeds Doesn’t ask for an email when you sign up Owns its DNS servers Bridge mode OpenVPN, WireGuard No streaming support No iOS app No Split tunneling Doesn’t support some modern platforms Mullvad is a unique paid VPN service. Not only does it protect your privacy reliably but also allows registering without using an email for 100% anonymity. How important is it? Just as much as you value your privacy. What is also curious about Mullvad is that it supports one of the most promising modern VPN protocols – WireGuard. Besides, it lets you build so-called bridges (chains of two VPN servers). In November 2019, Mullvad added an app for Android, updated its Windows and Mac software, increased the number of its servers and improved its website. And that’s far from it about this Swedish VPN provider. What are the other advantages of Mullvad? Fast and stable connections on all available platforms High speeds High level of security and privacy Torrenting...

July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: What are the abilities of VPNArea? Pricing User reviews To my mind, VPNArea is an underrated VPN service . Having conducted a comprehensive research of it, I found a lot of advantages in its usage . It follows the 2021 trends in more ways than one: it supports streaming, is safe for torrenting, has servers in many countries, and is a generally good fit for multi-purpose use . Further in the review, I’ll tell you about this provider’s advantages and drawbacks as well as compare its real characteristics to those of the VPN market leaders such as ExpressVPN . I’ll also analyze the prices of VPNArea in comparison to the top-tier cheap providers . VPNArea was founded in 2012 in Bulgaria. The provider hasn’t been caught in scandals or debunked for as long as it’s been operating. Thus, we can be sure that its reputation is good. In my opinion, the main advantage of this VPN service in comparison to its closest competitors is its relatively small server load, while its...

Hidester VPN/Proxy Review – My Experience of Using It (2021)

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: What can Hidester VPN do? Pricing Client account procedures of Hidester VPN Hidester is based in Hong Kong and is interesting primarily for the Chinese market - this VPN service supports many technologies to bypass censorship . But lately, the political situation in Hong Kong has raised doubts about the security of VPNs located there. Also, I took advantage of the proposed technologies and didn’t see a significant advantage over the truly anonymous, safe, and cheap Surfshark VPN which also works in countries with internet censorship. Like any VPN, Hidester can be used not only in China but also in any other country . Technologies used to bypass complex blocks are well suited to provide additional security and convenience in normal and highly restricted environments. I liked how easy it is with Hidester to create an encrypted secure channel even without using the OpenVPN protocol. What can Hidester do? Its most basic app is bypassing blocking of VPN connections.

📑 Table of Contents: What can BTGuard do? Streaming support Security Torrenting support Servers Price Owner company information User reviews Conclusion BTGuard claims to specialize in securing torrent connections . It is a medium-sized Canadian VPN service with servers in Canada, Europe, and Asia. What is it known about this VPN? BTGuard was launched around 2011 by Toronto-based Netcrawled LLC, but there is doubt that this is a real company. The sent correspondence to its address has returned. To date, there is any evidence indicating that Netcrawled LLC was involved in any significant development or research in the field of security. The stated technical characteristics of a VPN service show an average service level . I tried to understand the peculiarities of BTGuard to give a comprehensive assessment of the service. To do this, I tested its capabilities and identified its strengths and weaknesses. I was faced with a very limited choice of countries, the lack of convenient software...

Goose VPN Review 2021

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: What can Goose VPN do? Pricing User reviews You may have heard of Goose VPN as a Dutch service with a great 30-day trial period. We wrote about it in the article about unblocking Netflix and in the rating of free trial VPNs . But recently everything has changed ... The provider got rid of the trial version. Now there is no way to use this service for free. Well, let's see if Goose VPN is worth the money it wants for a subscription, compare it to the best VPNs like ExpressVPN , and see if it has exceptional advantages or serious disadvantages. To do this, I did a thorough research of its features and analyzed the test results on all major platforms such as Windows , Mac , Android , and iOS . What can Goose VPN do? A preliminary analysis of the announced features doesn’t promise anything related to the latest developments in the field of privacy protection, such as NordVPN does. The service offers: masking the IP address; increased safety; access to the best prices...

Ultrasurf Review – Free VPN with Malicious Code

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: Does Ultrasurf contain a virus? What is Ultrasurf for? Alternatives to Ultrasurf Ultrasurf is arguably the most insecure VPN in 2021. The only possible reason to use it is that it’s completely free. It is also not a fully-featured service with Virtual Private Network support. It would be more correct to call it a censorship bypass tool. The provider's software doesn’t create a virtual network. It works on the principle of end-to-end encryption . It doesn't provide the strong privacy protections ExpressVPN does, but it does a pretty good job of getting around ISP blocking. Ultrasurf was created more than 15 years ago to help China's internet users when they first encountered internet censorship. The app coped with the task effectively and, at the same time, helped to bypass site blocking for free. In 2020, the functionality has hardly changed, only support of Android and Chrome has been added. Unfortunately, there is still no option to select the connection country...

PlexVPN Review & Experience of Using

📑 Table of Contents: Functions of PlexVPN Tariffs and prices of PlexVPN Client account procedures for PlexVPN PlexVPN attracts subscribers with high speeds and a one-click connection. This VPN service has very favorable subscription terms , supports all OSs and allows you to connect to servers in more than 10 countries of the world (which is much less than, for example, ExpressVPN , which supports 94 countries). The service was launched in 2017 in China and focuses primarily on the local market. The provider's software has Smart Mode technology to bypass the blocking by mainland China's Internet providers. PlexVPN can also be a proxy for Telegram . There is such an option in the settings of the app. Note that PlexVPN also supports US Netflix and some other streaming video services. Are you interested?

Keenow Review – Is it Worth Buying it for Netflix?

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: What can Keenow do? Streaming support Pricing If you open this page on the look-out for a free VPN service , I’ll have to disappoint you – Keenow doesn’t have a free plan anymore. In 2021, the service holds itself out as a universal tool for paid websites unblocking and access to geo-restricted Netflix content on any platform, including TV. Let’s look into the way it works and if it’s worth buying Keenow, taken into account its prices and aspects identified while testing it. It’s a good practice to compare its features with the best VPN in 2021 - ExpressVPN . Keenow Unblocker was launched in June 2016 as a free smart DNS application that gives access to streaming Netflix. The provider unblocks content streaming through both the netflix.com site and Netflix app available for mobile platforms and devices running on Android. It’s also significant that Keenow possesses a Smart DNS feature that serves to change the region of video content on TV platforms directly. For...

ZenVPN Review – Too Limited Free Plan and Run-of-the-mill Features

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: ZenVPN rates ZenVPN features Security and privacy Sign up process ZenVPN is one of the easiest-to-use VPN services. It also has a very flexible pricing policy and a very limited but completely free plan. The service is suitable for most tasks, including streaming Netflix, Hulu, and HBO services. Like most good mid-range VPNs, ZenVPN is not as fast as ExpressVPN . It has servers in only the most popular countries (27), and lacks Kill Switch data leak protection. ZenVPN's free plan is not limited in speed or country selection, but it is significantly limited in terms of traffic. You can spend up to 250MB per day , but no more than 500MB per month . Are they serious? Today, even those providers that allow up to 2GB of traffic per month have increased the limits to 10 GB. 500 MB is too little for the modern Internet, where up to 2MB of traffic is spent to open one page. And that's without video content. It's not difficult to calculate that ZenVPN's limit will run out...

TigerVPN Review – Expensive Service with a Good Trial Period (2021)

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: What can TigerVPN do? Pricing User reviews TigerVPN is a simple VPN service with a good selection of countries, a 3-day free trial period, unstable speed and basic functionality. The service deserves attention primarily as a free trial VPN that doesn’t require entering credit card details . In 2021, there aren’t many full-fledged services or mobile apps that are available without a subscription and entering payment information. Otherwise, TigerVPN is unlikely to compete with services like ExpressVPN both in terms of functionality and price. But this doesn’t mean that this provider doesn’t deserve attention. It's easy to install, supports a variety of payment methods, has a good selection of countries, and offers apps for all major OSs. TigerVPN can handle simple tasks that are feasible with low internet speeds and those that don’t require a high level of privacy. A bit of a surprise for me was the provider's support for unblocking Netflix. What can TigerVPN do?...

WiTopia PersonalVPN Review – Inexpensive but Technologically Advanced Service

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: Why do I recommend PersonalVPN? Streaming Pre-installed routers Alternatives to WiTopia PersonalVPN pricing In 2005 WiTopia launched its VPN service PersonalVPN, and in 2016 it launched its secure email service SecureMyEmail. Today, I2’ve studied and tested their PersonalVPN product, which turned out to be of sufficient quality and functionality to reliably protect the Internet connection and bypass blocking/censorship. PersonalVPN is an up-to-date efficient VPN with classic apps for major OSs and with the function to order a pre-installed VPN router for home or office. WiTopia PersonalVPN is underrated, in my opinion. It uses technologies that allow, along with such a giant as NordVPN , to overcome censorship in China, Iran, and the UAE. But at the same time, its pricing policy is more flexible and depends not only on the duration of the subscription but also on the set of available characteristics. It saves a lot on a 1-6-month subscription, which is very rare...

📑 Table of Contents: What can ibVPN do? Pricing User reviews ibVPN is an abbreviation for the Romanian VPN service Invisible Browsing VPN. Distinctive features of the provider are expanded support for bypassing blocking in countries with Internet censorship and support for streaming Netflix and some other services. ibVPN is one of the oldest VPN providers and has been around for over 15 years. Today it provides services such as standard VPN protection, double protection, access to streaming video services from anywhere in the world , protection of torrent activity, and at the same time has a flexible pricing policy.

OkayFreedom Review 2021 – Is it Worth Overpaying?

Dean Chester
July 14, 2021
📑 Table of Contents: What can OkayFreedom VPN do? Pricing Security and privacy OkayFreedom is one of two VPN services of the German company Steganos Software GmbH. It is notable for having a free plan . According to my observations, this is a classic free VPN with the ability to upgrade to a Premium subscription with all the typical features : Limited traffic-free plan Minimal feature set A small selection of locations, even on a paid tariff (21). By comparison, ExpressVPN has over 5,000 servers in 59 countries Presence of ads in free apps Weak support Support of only some platforms (in our case, only Windows ) Low level of security I say all of this is based on the experience of using it and the results of extensive testing . To begin with, downloading OkayFreedom through the Chrome browser isn’t so easy. The browser protection system informs that the downloaded file can be a threat to the computer: Is that okay for recommended VPN services ? Definitely not! The vast majority of VPN...

Cryptostorm VPN Review 2021: Is it trustworthy?

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Cryptostorm is a VPN service based in Canada (or maybe Iceland – we can’t tell). The VPN was initially known as CryptoCloud, and it has been around for around 10 years. It is a service is that focuses on privacy and anonymity and uses a unique token-based network access system. Here’s a highlight of the VPN: Superb anonymity measures Good security features Tor & I2P sites Only 1 custom client app Small server network Not easy to use Ownership concerns The bulk of the highlights already shows that Cryptostorm VPN won’t top our list of recommendations. But is it still a good option for users that are only interested in securing their data and remaining anonymous? Let’s find out in this Cryptostorm review. What can Cryptostorm VPN do? Unfortunately, there’s isn’t much you can do with Cryptostorm. The VPN doesn’t offer or even promise much apart from privacy and security.

FreeVPN.se Review: Locations and Privacy problems

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
How often we face the problem when services like ‘Spotify’ are not available for us on the basis of our location. But is it so despairing for Android owners? The answer is evident – no. FreeVPN.se authors give a helping hand in this issue. They created a totally free application that makes the process of net use reliable and unlimited. I pay so much attention to Android as not all free VPNs are available for our portable gadgets. FreeVPN.se (.me, .lt, .im, .be, .co, .uk, .eu) states that it provides unsurmountable security and privacy and does not keep any logs. It is supposed to be a revolutionary and advanced VPN service, which “puts your security and privacy first, with no compromise”. And it is absolutely free! But… Having tested this VPN, I declare that this service is not a revolution, it cannot provide privacy, they are keeping logs, it is not user-friendly, and a half of the locations do not work. FreeVPN.se does not offer any VPN applications but only provides settings for...

Opera VPN Review

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Opera is the first of popular web browsers, which has embedded a VPN in its functionality. The browser was developed by the Norwegian company Opera Software AS (since 2016, the owner is Golden Brick Capital Management Limited, Hong Kong). I hasten to add that this is not a real Virtual Private Network, but a proxy embedded in the browser. Therefore, it is possible to hide IP for websites opened in Opera only. Besides, there are no additional functions inherent in full-fledged VPN applications. I have to disappoint iOS users (iPhone and iPod owners): Opera browser does not have a VPN function for Apple mobile gadgets. Furthermore, I will tell you about the features of using Opera VPN, show what it is good for by using examples, and highlight some serious drawbacks that it has.

As the security of data transferred over the Internet has become an important part of people’s online activity, there has been a constant urge for more and more secure internet connections. In addition to trustworthy antivirus software installed on numerous devices, users should actively protect their data on the Net with a reliable VPN .

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Webroot WiFi Security is a VPN product from Webroot, a big American security name. The VPN is operated by Carbonite, Inc., which is based in Boston and is owned by Canadian company OpenText.

Hide All IP Review

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
The use of a trustworthy VPN service is a great way to encrypt user’s online traffic and avoid censorship imposed by the country one lives or visits to say nothing of restrictions bypassing. The number of cyber attacks increases year after year. Thus, the most targeted countries of the last quarter of 2017 became the USA, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Germany. When one connects to a reliable VPN service it becomes possible to browse the pages being almost 100% anonymous and secure. Anonymity is provided due to the facility of a good VPN provider to hide IP of a user allowing a person to access any website on the Internet. While security is guaranteed thanks to reliable encryption protocols offered by VPN provider. Hide All IP is one of such top-notch VPN services.

DroidVPN Review

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
According to the Ben Gurion University’s researchers, Android 4.3 and above versions are not inherently well protected from security loophole that can easily invite hackers, phishers, and spammers. These unauthorized entities can easily bypass all the security mechanism to access all critical information, in case a malicious app exists on your phone. To overcome this security breach, having only an antivirus will not suffice. There needs to be additional protection that can easily breach these entities and their scandals without much effort or impact on mobile network performance.

Well, one such good VPN service to consider is DroidVPN, a VPN client that imparts full protection your Android tablets and smartphones while browsing the Internet, especially via public Wi-Fi and hotspots.

July 12, 2021
TorVPN is a VPN service founded in 2010 and based in Hungary. Despite the name, it appears to have no connection with the notorious official Tor Project. TorVPN allows internet users to browse the internet anonymously. It encrypts traffic, hides the IP address and can connect to their network, available on the tor.hu website. TorVPN has multiple servers located in Hungary and 7 more countries, which allows you to change your IP address with one of the servers' addresses and deter the search engines' tracking systems. You will be able to browse and access restricted data when using TorVPN, as you can bypass firewall systems and safely connect to any site or platform you want to share and browse information. It may not be the service with the most features, but the lack of extra options makes TorVPN faster and helps it stand out of the crowd. Pricing When you try to choose a VPN client, you have so many options you can easily become overwhelmed; the only way to make the difference...

SecurityKISS: Is it Closed Forever?

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Not so long ago, in May 2020, another VPN service was closed down. This time I stopped working with SecurityKISS clients. Is this really the final closure, or will the service be back? After all, today’s use of Virtual Private Network ( VPN ) for hiding IP addresses , encrypting transmitted data, torrenting , streaming, and other tasks are only gaining popularity. SecurityKISS was founded in 2010 and has been one of the few free VPN services all along. It has lasted more than most of the strongest VPNs to date . What caused the closure? I conducted a study of the company's activities and came to a disappointing conclusion for all free anonymization services – low-quality services (typical of all completely free providers) are no longer in demand. It has become almost impossible to use modern Internet at speeds that are inherent in such providers. Streaming video, torrenting, online radio, and much more require a good connection speed and stability. Saving on VPN is already making...

ASTRILL VPN REVIEW: Good for China but has security issues

Pros of Astrill Cons of Astrill 7-day free trial Modern protocols Dedicated IPs High speeds Many additional features Apps for every OS including Linux Netflix and Hulu support Works in China consistently Leaks DNS data Requires a phone number to sign up Torrenting is really risky Websites access issues Expensive No kill switch on mobile platforms Too few servers Astrill VPN makes an impression of a very capable VPN service that can even bypass the Great Firewall of China. It doesn’t just use regular VPN technologies but also implements innovative VPN protocols and allows tuning a safe connection very precisely. However, the prices of Astrill’s services are really over the top. At first glance, it seems reasonable: a respectable VPN costs a corresponding amount of money. I tried to dig into the tests as deeply as I could to better understand the uniqueness of Astrill and make sure that it is worth $10+ a month. I could confirm the real efficiency of the service only in terms of some of...

Judging by my findings concerning its updated apps, it has become one of the most advanced VPN services of today.

They made a kill switch available on every OS. They added a passive safety extra feature called Stealth Guard. They made the most sophisticated settings of a VPN connection available. Last time, I tested...

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 transferred through the network since 2013 [ 1 ]. VPN Gate was launched by enthusiasts to apply the SoftEther VPN protocol, which was developed by the University of Tsukuba [ 2 ]. The distinctive feature of this protocol is applying the traditional SSL encrypting used in https addresses. It is a bit faster than OpenVPN, but it almost doesn’t play hardball on reliability. I decided to test VPN Gate to find the answers to the questions: Is it really free? What tasks is it appropriate for? How to...

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.

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 order to be as fast as possible and does not mask an IP-address for some reason. The purpose of this feature remained incomprehensible to me. How does it unblock streaming services then? In what cases does it work? What is their SmartVPN for? How much does it cost and how to use Unblock-Us for free? Keep reading and I will answer these and other frequently asked questions about Unblock-Us.

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021

By late 2019, many VPNs have updated their apps, optimized their pricing, added support of new devices several times. Trust.Zone has also attempted to support Netflix by creating a special US server. We allowed some time to pass and decided to test the performance of the service in general thoroughly and write an unbiased review of all its features, pros, and cons of this VPN provider. To do that, I have conducted all the necessary tests and checked the claims of supporting the popular streaming service. What did I find out? The result is ambiguous. Generally...

Is that interesting for you? I believe YES! Let’s start then! How can you use DotVPN free of charge? DotVPN is presented in two versions: paid and free. I’d like to note: the free version is more limited than a premium one. Just because using it for free: Internet connection performance is worse. Streaming services are not accessible.

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. You still can find a lot of reviews and ratings on the Internet where this VPN is positioned as an unlimited free VPN service. But this information is outdated. Now Betternet is a free trial VPN.

Avast SecureLine VPN Review

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
Pros of Avast VPN Cons of Avast VPN 7-60 days free trial High speeds Netflix Kill Switch Supports major platforms Partial data leaks * Different prices for the same services A credit card is required to start their free trial Servers for streaming are slow No setting for alternative VPN clients and routers Limited functionality on mobile versions *- a part of traffic remains unprotected with the default settings Avast SecureLine is a paid VPN service that has a free trial. The price policy it offers is the most confusing one in the market. It also leaks users’ data partially and its mobile apps don’t have a kill switch. Its free trial version can only be used for 60 days by Windows users. Avast VPN supports Netflix but not Hulu. Avast is one of the largest Internet security companies but do its experience and name affect the quality and technological excellence that much? The answer is they do but not in a way you’d expect. In this review of Avast VPN, I will show you what flaws are...

Dean Chester
July 12, 2021
What to do if you need to use VPN in a flexible way rather than in the way offered by VPN services? … Or using third-party servers is not allowed or inefficient? What if you need to create your own protected network? In such cases, configuring your own VPN based on its infrastructure may be helpful. FreeLAN can be the solution to that task. FreeLAN is free all-around VPN open-source software for Windows, Linux, and macOS that can be used to create three types of VPN: Client-server Peer-to-peer Hybrid that includes the two types mentioned above. In this review, I’ll tell you what features are offered by FreeLAN, what its pros and cons are, describe the peculiarities of its configuring and using, and finally, I’ll give you some recommendations.

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.

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 the VPN value is in its facility to make all the applications on your device manage to connect to the Internet through the changed IP to bypass different restrictions. VPN tunnel is created from you to a VPN server, other computer or network and all the traffic passes through this tunnel. Hola points out that it uses the so-called P2P (Peer-To-Peer) VPN. The servers aren’t used. Instead, the devices (where the app or plugin by Hola are set up) of the users like you are exploited. Practically, an...
