Editors' Review

A VPN is a virtual private network, an isolated subset of the Internet that allows for much greater security and privacy without sacrificing the Internet's ability to connect far-flung PCs and users together. VPNs have lots of uses, such as telecommuting into a corporate network, secure collaboration with others -- even on the other side of the world -- and private browsing. With a VPN, you can surf the Web anonymously and securely, leaving no traces. Free VPN from VPN Master is an easy-to-use VPN tool for Windows. Free VPN comes with more than 1,400 minutes of free access on VPN Master's network. After that, you can opt for an inexpensive monthly plan, if you'd like. We looked around for some sort of limitations or fine print, but it appears that your free minutes start when you start using Free VPN and end when they run out.

Free VPN is easy to use, but you must provide a username and e-mail address to access the VPN servers. But the rest is easy; Free VPN's tiny, draggable, Aero-style interface has two buttons, Connect and Disconnect. We pressed Connect, and a message indicated we were connected while a counter began counting down our free minutes. VPN Master says its network doesn't compromise browsing speed. Experience made us skeptical, but bandwidth tests proved the claim, and Free VPN didn't affect our bandwidth at all -- a first, for us. There's no Help file or support for Free VPN, beyond VPN Master's contact form and FAQs.

Now we understand that there are many reasons for wanting to use a VPN, and not all of them are ethical or even legal, at least maybe not in your country. But that's the point: the Internet reaches all corners of the globe, but not all of them allow free and open access, and tools that let citizens communicate freely, safely, and anonymously are obviously a good thing, though in this case, "freely" doesn't necessarily mean "for free." But it goes without saying that it's a good thing that Free VPN is said to work perfectly nearly everywhere, including China and the Middle East.

"It works, but "free" is misleading"

November 18, 2014  |  By dobberhockey

 |  Version: Free VPN 3.1

Pros

I was able to watch a hockey game on my computer instead of being forced to go to the TV, thanks to VPN (I refuse to call it "Free VPN") getting through the blackouts

Cons

The price of $7.95 that you eventually see above by clicking "more" twice - well that's per month. Or if you buy for a year it's 50 bucks. Yeah. Terrible.

Summary

Greed kills this one for me - company charges too much. Ten bucks a year would be fair. But overcharging isn't the worst sin here - it's calling the product "Free VPN" so it catches the searches. And that baldfaced lie loses me.

"My best Free VPN"

November 06, 2014  |  By suranjanru

 |  Version: Free VPN 3.1

Pros

I am using this free VPN for some days, it is working nice, I can now unlock some of the website what I can not before. I can not visit some USA website.

Cons

Sometimes it can be bad for us. We may visit some bad page which is off for us.

Summary

Overall we will get the best service from them because, sometimes we need to visit some website or get some useful information from them. In this case we can be strongly benefited.

November 06, 2014  |  By rnnp04

 |  Version: Free VPN 3.1

Pros

Awesome Virtual Private Network i have ever found

Cons

Free VPN is a great tool to protect my privacy and security while using internet.

Summary

This is the one that don't keep logs, protect my anonymity, don't discriminate against traffic or protocol types, offer exit servers to help me get around location-restricted content blocks.. I can stay constantly connected, connect to my home network when i am away.
