Best 5 Free VPN Services

Best 5 Free VPN Services

Internet censorship is commonplace these days in schools, universities and organizations where it is unwanted for people to access certain services (usually social networks like Twitter, Facebook etc., video streaming websites like YouTube, Metacafe, and P2P services) in order to either save bandwidth, or work time. The usual way used by those who want to get around this blocking is to access blocked services and websites through web proxies or proxy servers, which can be slow, insecure and inefficient at times. Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a technique which gives all the benefits of accessing blocked content online while having none of the disadvantages suffered by proxies.

VPN uses authorization and encryption to securely connect to external hosts thereby giving you a chance to visit restricted and/or blocked websites easily from a network. Usually VPN service is not free, but we have a list of top 5 free VPN clients which you can use to get around website blocking.

AlonWeb VPN Client

AlonWeb is a free VPN service provider which uses the OpenVPN standard to hide your actual IP address and enable access to restricted websites. The servers are located in Netherlands and Panama and users can transfer a maximum of 1GB data per month using AlonWeb. AlonWeb uses open DNS servers making it secure. <link>


Also based on OpenVPN standard, UltraVPN provides its users with unlimited data transfer but has a limit on the data transfer speed with 500 Kb/sec the maximum transfer rate depending on network conditions. <link>


CyberGhost enables you to route traffic to your host via a German IP. It also features a limited monthly data transfer (upto 10GB per month) and provides a faster paid service which is also very affordable. <link>


A secure SSL/TLS based VPN service which provides an extra dimension of security and privacy to the websites you visit. You need to install the OpenVPN client software in order to use the OpenVPN service which only works on desktop operating systems (Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and Linux) with no mobile operating system support. <link>


Macro VPN is Another free VPN service with a monthly data transfer limit of 2GB and a maximum data transfer rate limit of 256 Kb/sec. macroVPN uses 128 bit PPTP VPN service which allows extra security over the Open VPN standard used in other free clients. Also it gives the ability to completely unlist your IP address.<link>
