If you have ever received the message “Your requested URL has been blocked” or that “The uploader has not made this video available in your country” or have been subjected to incessant advertisements based on the last search made then you have come to the right place. We’ll tell you all about the best free VPN services to solve your woes.
So here’s the problem with VPN’s – most of them are costly but provide good security and the free ones are slow and filled with advertisements. The larger issue behind the rationale of using a virtual private network stems from suspicion and frustration, both operating in a kind of partnership. Suspicion that what you do may be used against you and frustration of not being able to watch or read what you want when you want. I remember the last time I paid my internet bill there were no conditionals that were mentioned regarding curated content. Making documentaries on national issues inaccessible, inhibiting us from laughing to performances on Whose Line Is It Anyway or watching our favorite celebrities getting dissed on Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets or even “protecting” us from innocent, vernacular vocabulary in shows such as Friends (Why? Just why would you mute ‘sex’ of all the things?)
While Amazon and Netflix are constantly working towards filling these potholes and specially in India, there is still a lot of ground to cover in a short time which may be possible but only in a distant future.
So here’s it people- the only way to access made unavailable content, the best VPN apps on Android and iOS with their download links below.
1. Yoga VPN
Yes, you read that right. All the world’s rage now- Yoga is here to cure all your digital ailments and to nourish your mind and geek soul. This flexible VPN is free and only requires you to press a button to access your favorite online content from anywhere. The best thing about it is that there are no in-app purchases and the speeds are astonishing. To start you off, the app gives you some points of which, 1200 are spent every time you connect to a server. You can easily get points every minute by clicking the ‘tap to get points’ button for free and yes, it’s that easy.
The app is available on both iOS and Android to keep every user connected.
2. Opera VPN
Now Opera delivers a fantastic service. Bypass censorship and take a detour from unnecessary restrictions to access what you want on the web. Another benefit of this VPN is that it gives you a free analysis of your WiFi connection to determine its strength and security to keep you safe and connected but in a limited way. It is quick to start and provides fast speed even when you are streaming, let’s say a movie or a show. For people who hate ads (ouch!) it also includes a free ad blocker to kick content makers right in the shin (please don’t use it).
