Editors' Review

Free VPN, which is actually just free for one day, routes your Internet traffic through a server located in another country to anonymize it. The app features a very minimalistic interface with just two buttons, which is very straightforward but limiting at the same time.

Pros

Straightforward interface: When you launch Free VPN, you will see just two buttons in the app's window -- one will connect you to the VPN, and the other will disconnect you. There are no options or additional settings available.

Stable speed: When we tested the reliability of the VPN connection, we were pleased with the results -- surfing the Web was fluid albeit slower than on our regular connection. We downloaded a 106MB file in a little over 11 minutes, at an average download speed of around 150KB/s.

Servers in multiple countries: While trying out the software, we were connected to servers in four different countries: Ireland, The Netherlands, France, and Germany. On the downside, we couldn't specify which server we preferred.

Cons

Lack of options: Even though it's a good idea not to overwhelm your customers with options, going in the other extreme can be detrimental. With just two buttons on the screen, there isn't even a way to specify which country's server you prefer to use.

No status indicator: Unlike other VPN offerings, there isn't a system tray icon with this one. In order to see if you're connected to a VPN, you need to restore its main window.

Closing the app doesn't stop it: If you happen to close the main window, you'll remain connected to the VPN. In order to sever your connection, you must reopen the app, press the Connect button, and then press the Disconnect button.

Bottom Line

Due to its set-and-forget mode of operation, Free VPN is a good choice for people who want to use a VPN but are too busy to learn a new app. But if there are missing features that you can't forego, you'd be better served by another app.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Free VPN 3.1.

"Works, but at a small price. Is it worth it?"

October 06, 2015  |  By Stephen Redeker

2015-10-06 18:24:07  |  By Stephen Redeker

 |  Version: Free VPN 3.1

Pros

Works, connection is pretty fast, but not broadband speed. Very fast and easy install, easy 2-button interface.

Cons

Installs with bloatware....about three programs install with it. You can reject two, but one you cannot. Must uninstall later. Also, no options! I live in SE Asia, would be nice to choose what location my VPN comes from, because the Netherlands is kinda far. Therefore, not as fast as it could be. My internet browser is acting funny, and I'm getting new pop-ups. Seems safe, but still not cool.

Summary

Yes you get the VPN with ease, and it works with decent speed, but with some added bloatware and not many options.
