My Top 3 Free VPN’s


What is a VPN, and why would I need it?

VPN or Virtual Private Network is a protocol or system that encrypts the connection between two points like you, and a website, for example, that way your ISP doesn’t know exactly what you are doing, you have more peace of mind and most of all you have privacy, although the only real way to ensure VPN privacy is to ensure the VPN provider does not generate any logs from your account, or disclose your personal information, so keep that in mind when shopping around.


VPN not only protects or hides you, it can also act as a proxy, this feature is called IP-masking, the way it works is, for example the video streaming site, is only available in the States, so if you’re not in the admitted region you get a message like this.




But with IP-masking or, unblock geo-restricted content we are able to load the video as if we were there.


This can be used in many Geo-restricted content and services and is probably the main reason why people use premium VPN’s, especially with Netflix. Although with Netflix you would need to know the difference between each country’s library to know if it worked or not.



So now that we know some of the benefits of VPN’s here are my top 3 free VPN providers

   1. Tunnel Bear

Simple, private, free access to the open Internet you love.

  • Browse to 20+ countries
  • Lightning-fast access
  • Works on your phone, Mac or PC, and on your browser

Tunnel Bear comes in three flavours:

  • Little (Free) 500MB of free data a month
  • Giant 9.99 a month unlimited data
  • Grizzly 59.88 for the year

Tunnel Bear is at the top of my list mainly because it’s free, but with only 500MB I would use this on my smartphone if I was on public wifi. Although they are a VPN they do have some restrictions like torrent downloading, you cannot download a torrent anonymously with Tunnel Bear do to a high volume of complaints from content providers.

Your connection is never logged, and Tunnel Bear goes the extra mile to protect your privacy online.

Easy to set up and use across any of your devices.




   2. Cyber Ghost

Secure your digital lifestyle for free!

  • AES 256-bit encryption
  • 100% customizable
  • 1 click on the streaming service you want to unblock
  • Works on your phone, Mac or PC, and on your browser, Routers, and Rasberry Pi

Cyber Ghost gives you 4 packs:

  • Free ( for 1 hour)
  • Premium Plus 7 (344 for 7 years)
  • Premium ( 2.68 a month billed annually or 7.49 monthly)
  • Premium Plus (4.29 a month billed annually or 11.99 monthly)

Cyber Ghost pride themselves in offering a true encrypted connection to the internet, they do not log your connection and will allow torrent network client integration so once you set up your torrent client you will always be secure.

The other great thing about Cyber Ghost is that it is customizable, select a specific server to use as well as multiple available features and feedback options, for those that like to tinker and are a little bit of a tech geek like me.

And above all else I would say the best thing about them is they are free, you can try before you buy, and although you don’t get all the best features with the free version you still get what you need.




3. Widscribe

Browse the web privately as it was meant to be

  • Your online session is deleted 3 minutes after it’s closed
  • Unblock geo-restricted content
  • Works on Mac & PC, Browsers, Smartphones, Routers and NAS(Network Attached Storage)

Widscribe has 3 options to pick from

  • Limited (Free 10GB a month)
  • Pro (7.50m 90billed yearly)
  • Pro (9.00m billed monthly)

So I have left the best for last, 10GB a month is very generous, and if you refer someone to the service you can get even more bandwidth a month as long as they stay signed up.

Windscribe is very easy to use, and its geolocation service works great!

They state that a true 100% anonymity is impossible but Windscribe will provide 90% and the remaining 10% is up to the user and his or her online habits.

Windscribe allows Torrent network connections and downloading of torrent files although they explain that the IP addresses you use are shared with others so under one IP there will be thousands of torrent connections although it’s not entirely impossible the chances of your ISP pinpointing your exact Torrent history are very slim.


Although VPN’s are meant to hide you from your ISP or government, depending on where you’re from, I would still exercise caution and never believe I am truly hidden, be careful with what you do online and where you go.

I use VPN’s mainly to hide my Torrent downloading habits and for geo-location, or access to restricted video streams, more about that in a future post, but for now I encourage you to try these 3 free services just as I have and enjoy a more private internet experience.
