    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.

    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.

This isn't a very big amount, so you wont be capable to utilize it at its fullest without paying, but it's great for those times when you want a little extra safety and needs to go down the VPN free route. It also gives a variety of paid-for plans that delete the limits linked with the free plan, such as the download limit, states available and the number of attached devices. I have tried it on my own so I would suggest you try this. Go for a detailed list of free VPN's by following https://thevpn.guru/free-vpn-vs-paid-vpn-comparison-review.

  24. For the free/cheap one, I'd choose TunnelBear. Although of course, it has limitations (monthly cap for usage) but otherwise, it works great.

    For the good/paid one, I'd choose SurfsharkI've used it for only a few months (I've been a cheapo for the past years and only used free ones) but I've been really impressed. Love that it can access up to 58 countries and makes Netflix use so much easier so if you're thinking of finally spending money for a secured VPN service, it's really a good option. A next-in-line option for me would be expressVPN.

    I use Ivacy VPN. If you are still looking for an affordable VPN then you can subscribe it to it with a 7 day trial.

    in general, what people have been suggesting in the earlier messages seems to be ok.... (and this seems to be an old topic someone lifted up...)
    just... do NOT fall for any of the "FREE" VPN services you can see available for android,and on google play... (there is ALWAYS a catch with them...)
    there is no such thing.
    but just like Amit Mehra said ....
    there is VPN providers, whom offer you a free trial,without paying anything...
    you should always do that first...
    take the free trial,and see if it suits your needs or not.
    also... it's good to google aka use some search engines to find more information about a certain VPN provider,before buying it...
    bottom line is, if the VPN provider does not offer you a free trial to try it out first, do NOT buy it, cause there is many VPN providers whom do that.

    windscribe offers free data per month,and you can get more free data by mining for crypto coins on their page,for them.
    you can use a virtual machine windows/linux to do that, or if you are using windows 10 pro/enterprise, you can run your browsers "sandboxed" (aka isolated) in windows.
    use google, check reddit etc. to find more info about windscribe.
    no need to flame my post again,i see i mentioned this earlier,but the guy is asking for "FREE" vpn ... there really is no such thing without a "catch" ..
    that would be the "easiest" way in my opinion to get a "free" VPN with somewhat nice bandwidth limit...
    personally,i did mine those crypto coins for them with my computer, and i had 100GB/month data-limit on my free account,with NO ADS ...
    but then a site offered a lifetime license for windscribe, for about 40 bucks,and i took that.
    and that's some 2-3 years ago, i am happy i took it,cause they do not sell "lifetime" licenses anymore.
    the main VPN which i use, is NordVPN, cause imho... they're the best for my needs...
    BBC works when i'm -anywhere- outside UK, netflix/amazon US works always with them...
    with windscribe, BBC does not work... but if your VPN needs are anything else than streaming a video, then it's a fine pick.
