ZenMate - The Best Free VPN
Every day millions of people use free VPN services in order to access blocked websites and keep themselves private and secure online. Yet there are many hidden dangers to using a free VPN, as several popular providers are all too willing to sacrifice your privacy and security in order to make a profit. But with so many free VPN providers out there, how do you know who to trust and who's going to track, store and sell your information? In order to help you out we've compiled some information on what to look for when searching for a free VPN service, as well as information on why we think ZenMate is the best free VPN for privacy, security, encryption and streaming.
Comparison with other free VPN providers
As we explained above, the way that a Freemium VPN service works is that paid VPN providers will offer their product to users for free but without some of the extra features they have implemented in their standard VPN. We really believe that ZenMate offers the best service to our free users and in order to prove it to you, we've put together a list of other popular Freemium VPN companies so that you can compare the different restrictions put upon free VPN users and choose the best free VPN for you:
- ZenMate - While speed is limited on our free version and a few sites will remain blocked, we still give you access to 4 server locations (including US) and unlimited data.
- Tunnelbear - Free users are limited to 500MB of data per month, not enough to do any streaming but should be fine if you only want a VPN to do your online banking.
- HotSpot Shield - All free VPN users are routed through their US server location but are blocked from using streaming sites such as Netflix and Hulu and given a daily limit of 750mb. Again only useful if you need to use a VPN for a short period of time on public wifi.
- CyberGhost - CyberGhost offers several server locations, including the US. The only problem is that free VPN users have to wait a while in line for a server location to become available to them, especially if it's a popular location such as the US. Also free VPN users are logged out of their session after 3 hours and made to wait in line again.
- TotalVPN - TotalVPN offers 3 server locations - Iceland, Singapore and the Netherlands. Again fine if you just need security, but you won't be able to unblock restricted US or UK content from abroad.
