Editors' Review

+

This small program provides strong privacy protection with none of the confusing setups of other proxy tools. In seconds, you'll be ready to surf privately and securely with Ultrasurf's fast, private proxies.

When you launch this program for the first time, it loads Internet Explorer automatically. This can be changed in the options menu as this tool works well with other browsers, too. Ultrasurf has a very simple interface with Home, Retry, Option, Help, and Exit buttons. One thing we found to be a bit awkward was the golden lock icon, which showed up on our Windows Taskbar after we started the program. However, we managed to hide it by unchecking the option. Overall, this tool is very easy to use and page-loading time while browsing the Web is quite fast. It is an ideal tool for people who don't know much about how proxies work, as you don't have to assign any port numbers or play with the features in order to hide your IP address. Those who are familiar with using proxy servers can change the proxy settings manually if they wish.

If you like to protect your privacy or can't access certain Web sites due to censorship, Ultrasurf will be the easiest gateway for you. It doesn't have a plethora of options, but overall it does what it's designed to do.

"Easy, Effective, free, portable IP proxy "Mask""

December 16, 2012  |  By Unknowntyper

 |  Version: Ultrasurf 12.03

Pros

This programme is small, self-contained and easy to use. You can use this via a flash drive on any PC at any location. It does not substantially slow your connection and is highly effective. This proxy is simple to use to P2P torrent programmes like VUZE/Utorrent to privately download all your favourite legal non-copyrighted materials with ease and speed!

Cons

Has some limits that bulky programmes offer. Tech savvy people out there will not use the "big" programmes anyway. But it is true this is light and lacks certain feature someone my desire.

This is not a CON per se, but it will be flagged by big corporate antivirus software. Don't worry, this programme is 100% safe.

Summary

Less is more. It's better to know what you are doing instead of having large bulky programmes run the whole show. A few tech-savvy programmes like this keep you computer light and running smooth! A small cocktail of a good Free antivirus, a programme like this one and a simple firewall are all you need to be 100% safe. Save your time and money to protect your privacy... Highly recommended

"dont listen to av companies"

November 19, 2012  |  By stewievader

 |  Version: Ultrasurf 12.03

Pros

this a great proxy tool,small yet powerful

Cons

anything you hear from an antivirus company about it being a trojan / unsafe site is just false

Summary

anti-virus companies are paid to identify software such as this as unsafe or a trojan, because it circumvents security measures put in place by government or business's.

due to the standardized definition of a trojan,'a program that looks legitimate but makes UNWANTED changes to a computer', gov/business's can say that the program is making unwanted changes so it should be classified as a Trojan

a good example of this being legitimate piracy tools

"Norton 360 indicates Ultrasurf not a safe site"

November 09, 2012  |  By macinjet

 |  Version: Ultrasurf 12.03

Pros

I could not find any pros because the Norton 360 security program indicated Ultrasurf was not a safe site.

Cons

This program looked promising but before I downloaded it, I wanted to visit the company website to get more information. After I clicked on the Ultrasurf website link, which was on the CNET download page, Norton 360 prevented it and gave a message indicating the site was not safe.

Summary

CNET should investigate this product to ensure it is safe to use. If not, remove it. I am surprised CNET does not routinely ensure EVERY site/application for which it places a DOWNLOAD button is a safe site and program to use.
