Rumors continue to swirl around about privacy breaches, and now the FCC is working tirelessly to repeal the Obama-era net neutrality rules by the end of the month. It is easy to see why people's emotions are running high over these issues as the internet has become a necessary part of daily life and a relevant tool in the movement of society.
As such, many are desperately seeking for salvation in the form of VPNs to shield themselves from possible privacy breaches, or from the possibility of their personal information being sold.
ISPs have already denied that they ever sold or will ever sell their customers' personal information, but perhaps in the state of things, it is still easy to understand why people are still turning to VPNs.
There are many VPNs available, both paid and for free, but not all of them are created equal. It is still possible for non-secure VPNs to sell your data, or for their own server to be hacked. Because of this, it is still important to make sure that you have a safe VPN for your internet needs.
We have here listed some of the best free VPN services that you may want to try.
Windscribe is still fairly new to the VPN game, but it also has a pretty generous data allowance, and do not store connection logs, visited sites, or IP stamps. What's more, the data gathered from active usage is automatically deleted within three minutes after an ended session, and it also has a built in firewall and ad blocker. Windscribe's data allowance is pretty high up compared to other VPNs at 10 GB per month, but a tweet will earn you 5 GB extra and 1 GB for every recommendation. Not bad.
This Canada-based VPN provider is a service that's very similar to the popular TunnelBear. It is operated and owned by Opera. It is easy to use, secure, and has multiple servers all around the world. It is a no-log network that does not keep any records of your information, download, and browsing history on their servers. The free version provides customers with 2 GB of data, but recommendations will earn you more.
Malaysia's VPN offer is a pretty good one. Users of the free plan can enjoy excellent connection speeds and secure connections thanks to OpenVPN encryption. Their design is pretty fun, too. But make no mistake, they are dead serious about not keeping your logs. Their service is available for all operating systems, and free users can enjoy a pretty good sum of data at 2 GB.
