The Best Free VPN 2017 For Torrenting
Free years back, there were many free VPNs available. But now we have limited choices. I am going to tell about some best free VPN s available today.
Why use a VPN?
There are many reasons to use free VPN (Virtual Private Network). but the two major reason is to hide our identity(ie. who are) or to hide our location(ie. where we are). Suppose you do not want someone to trace your online activities especially in that parts of worlds where internet surveillance is a serious issue. Then you can use proxies and VPNs.
There can be lots of websites which are banned in our country but if we still want to surf them then VPN is the best option available.
According to a research, One out of six people in the UK are using VPNs now. Fifty percent of them are using to unblock region-blocked sites (Websites which are blocked in some particular region).
Some VPN help us by blocking malware or filtering URL. When we are connected to insecure Public wifi-hotspots then VPN is a great protection to us.
Here is the list of VPNs
- Tunnel Bear
- Private Tunnel
- Hide Me
- Hotspot Shield
Let’s see all mentioned above in details. 🙂
