A not-so-free VPN
This program hides your tracks while you browse the web. However, its name is deceiving. It does, in fact, have a price tag.
No respect, decent functionality
The Internet Freedom VPN supposedly offers a free option for internet anonymity, but this is not the case.
Decent and honest products on the internet have a difficult enough time trying to differentiate themselves from scams at the best of times. This so-called Free Unlimited VPN Proxy is part of the reason why. It may have some credible features, but why would you even bother to investigate when the name itself is misleading?
The best aspect about this "free" product is that you won’t have to hand over your hard-earned cash during the seven-day trial. However, it matters not what the functionality provides, how fast it is, and the advantages it offers when you are misled right from the get-go.
The manufacturer points out that it works with no speed or bandwidth limitations. They also claim that it will unblock restricted sites and bypass state censorship. This is the basic job of any VPN, and trusted names like NordVPN and ExpressVPN will do the same.
The provider claims that they don’t track or log any information. You’d have to make your judgment on this, but given the questionable approach of their marketing, you might want to check the small print. Kaspersky and Hotspot Shield admit in their terms and conditions that they do log user data. The software also claims that they then delete the data once the session closes.
Where can you run this program?
The program runs on Windows 10 or higher. It only works with 64-bit systems.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. Try CyberGhost, Hotspot Shield VPN, ExpressVPN, or NordVPN. These all provide well-respected protection and security. Trust is paramount in this business, and The Internet Freedom VPN lost its trust with its name.
This is very disappointing for what might otherwise have been a useful, quality application. It’s a blatant attempt to fool the community into installing it and then forcing a payment to continue using it. It works, but you’ll want to avoid it.
Should you download it?
No. If you’re looking for a secure VPN that you can trust, definitely look somewhere else.
