Free VPN Services

There are many VPN services available for free used mostly to maintain anonymity, but remember : it will depend to the trust you place in the service provider as many of them record your steps .

Another typical use of these VPNs is to maintain the privacy of communications, the data that will be encrypted through the tunnel avoiding all probability of an attack . Of course traffic from the provider’s server to the site to visit will travel unencrypted  so the security in this case would not be complete.

Perhaps the main advantage of VPNs is to avoid censorship , so it’s useful to see restrictive web services such as Hulu or Netflix, something that is not always very effective because above all the IPs of the most famous VPN servers are added in blacklists and blocked. Another use of evasion is for firewalls that will not be able to determine the encrypted traffic protocol that goes through the tunnel.
