    Did you try the Windscribe extension for Firefox? 10GB free per month when you sign up.

    I have Winscribe Pro and while I don't use it very often, it's been fast and reliable when I do.

    It's not free, but slickdeals.com has some deals as low as $10.45 for one year to $37.95 for a lifetime sub https://slickdeals.net/f/11370475-windscribe-vpn-pro-subscription-lifetime-48-3-year-1...archBarV2Algo1

    There are two Australia VPNs included in the 50 options.

    There are many economical paid VPN's - PureVPN is good and has lots of features. With so called free VPN's you open yourself up to a lot of prying and targeted advertising.

    I have read, that all free VPN stored same as google everything you do. So only paid version as many suggested is the way to use VPN what it really means. So agree with others suggestions.

  10. I'm still a little concerned with speed reduction when using a VPN. I can't seem to find out which one doesn't throttle my already slow DSL speed here. I guess I could download a VPN trial (if any allow that) and then do a speed test with VPN on then another test with it off. Hate to do that kind of testing, because when I delete VPN software, I bet some hidden sh*t is left behind on my computer.

  11. No such thing as a good free vpn. The free ones are just poor leaky proxies shared with thousands of other users. And #12 is bang on; under no circumstances use Hola. I have had to cleanse many a customer's pc after an experience with Hola. Even after a proper uninstall and a complete removal of the browser addon (not just a disable) - Hola still remains connected and calling-home; hogging and selling your bandwidth thru files in a folder called 'Illuminati' - which will not DEL via conventional methods either!

    NordVPN and ExpressVPN are probably the best out of the paid-for solutions and I have used both. (No I am not a reseller). Support is better with Express, but Nord have way more servers.

    It is also important to keep in mind that this vulnerability could only have been exploited if an attacker had obtained access to the victim's PC. Such a situation alone leads to a variety of severe security threats beyond any individual apps."

  14. Agree using Free VPN is just like using a Fake VPN Which will not protect you anyhow and they also do not work with many websites and in many regions. If you are more curious about the content which you want to access and you are thinking that which VPN will work then its better to get a Trial for VPN and find out which one is working best for you.

    Not correct. Windscribe is good and free version has 10GB per month. There are no leaks as checked by ipleak.net which shows the IP and DNS. No guarantee paid one won't keep logs just their word

    Agree with Lissi, free vpns are doubtful as they might be selling user data...i suggest to pay small amount and get complete protection. In my experience nordvpn and purevpn are great in unlocking content.

    10gb month ? Lol. Not even one HD movie's worth. As I said no such thing as a good free vpn.

    Agreed. Free VPN is just not a good option for privacy tools such as VPN. My opinion would be that anyone free VPN is just as unreliable, when it comes to providing an acceptable degree of anonymity, like any other. Also, a lot of free vpn providers sell your bandwidth on and keep logs. So, it is better to get a decent paid one.

    Free VPN is totally unreliable. I have been using NordVPN for a while now and it never lets me down in accessing blocked sites for my region. I am heavy streamer and use Macbook to stream. Got hold of an article on best vpn for mac and Nord was my first choice. As others said PureVPN is also a very good option and maybe I'll buy that for my desktop.

    You can mine for download credit on windscribe ... (info and instructions are on their web-page,basically you just open the mining page and let it use your computer resources...)
    i had 100gb/month on the free account, before i grabbed a lifetime pro license for about 30 bucks..
    and as someone mentioned, i didn't have any ads/limits (other than the monthly data limit, which you can affect..) neither on the free one...

    Really? Are you nuts mate ? You let an unknown resource use your bandwidth for God knows what ? Do you even begin to realise the consequence of permitting this? Please stop.

    Nord keeps some concerning relationships, and honestly reminds me of the BS that Facebook has pulled.

    unknown source?
    it's windscribe's own page and script.
    and stop insulting people by calling them by names.
    dunno what kinda crap computer you got, obviously it's a waste of time to do it with a slow comp.
    when you don't know what you're talking about, then don't.
    eg. for me, kaspersky checks any script ran on this computer,
    and i had no problems on mining for them,it is legit.
    There's nothing shady about it, they explain it clearly what for it is, and you accept it manually yourself.
    There is no such thing as unlimited "free" VPN, if someone offers you such thing, then you should be cautious about it.
    Atleast Windscribe offers you a way to gain bandwidth credit without spending a penny,which is btw PERMANENT, u have all the extra credit each month.
    And btw, I always run the browsers sandboxed, so nothing gets on my machine for real.
    if you're paranoid about your security, nobody forces you to do it.

    About Windscribe's mining..

    What is this?

    When you have this page open, your computer will use its spare CPU cycles to solve math puzzles (hashes) in order to mine Monero. As a result, you may see that your CPU usage is higher than normal, but you can control this with a slider below. This does not compromise your privacy. We're utilizing a service provided by Coin-Hive, you can read their privacy policy here.

    Each solved puzzle is credited to your account. You can redeem your balance for free upgrades at the bottom of this page.

  24. There is nothing like free good VPNs because they are not getting paid so why would they provide you security. Try and get a good VPNs such as Nord Vpn, Surf Shark VPN, Express VPN they are good to go and they have a reasonable price too. They will also provide you maximum security. Security is the only reason we all use VPNs its a basic need.

  25. Long answer or a short one?

    There are a lot of vpns you can try out but most of the good ones are not free. for free, you actually get proxies without encryption. if you just wanna unblock some website, a proxy will do it for you and you don't need to pay for anything but don't expect security, anonymity or in the least, zero ads from them. some of the examples include ivacy lite, hotspot shield, zenmate, etc.

    Real VPNs offer encryption on the other hand but aren't free. This is your opportunity cost, if you will. apart from getting the ability to unblock apps and sites, you can also secure your transactions, stay anonymous and private and even get anti-malware in some cases. examples of encryption/paid VPNs include, Ivacy, Pure, Express and Nord among others.

    Hello. I agree. There is a lot of vpn both paid and free. Moreover, there are versions for mobile, desktop, requiring installation and there are extensions for browsers.
    With regards to everything free - yes, as a rule, they are bundled with intrusive advertising or sell user traffic, as they say, to third parties.
    Paid vpn, as a rule, do not. Although ... I heard unpleasant things about PureVpn ...
