You're in a country which blocks some of your favorite websites ?
You're browsing Internet through a hotspot
and you fear that someone could steal your data or your passwords?
You just feel safer by being sure that your provider and your state can't know what you're doing?
Featuring a secure tunnel connection between you and the VPN, a correct speed (average for the free version: 150kb/sec), and an ad blocker, this software will perfectly fit your needs.
The free version allows you to browse Internet, play online games, etc. But when surfing the Internet with a browser like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera or Google Chrome, the VPN sometimes adds an advertisement on the front on the page: that's fair because they are not many and the VPN anyways needs money like everyone of us. If you want to get better speed or just get rid of the ads, you can consider buying the Elite version which features in addition an enhanced malware protection, and a technical support.
To summarize, this is a great VPN for everybody: for occasional users, the free version should be enough but regular users should take a look at the elite version which could better fit their needs.
