Many VPNs choose to operate under a “less is more” mantra. Linkideo takes this idea a bit too far.
Allow us to elaborate — this VPN struggles to provide a full-fledged service that meets today’s standards. A total of 3 server countries and plans with download speeds of 2048 kbps would be considered acceptable back in 2007, when Linkideo launched. Nowadays, not so much.
The bigger issue is the 128-bit encryption. AES256 complemented by a RSA-2048 handshake is today’s definition of “secure” — anything under that is okay to have as an option, but 128-bit PPTP is simply outdated.
On a positive note, Linkideo does offer a so-called “custom anonymous link”. Frankly, we... read more
OkayFreedom VPN really likes reminding the user that it’s an “okay” (get it?!) service. And we agree — it is okay, but not much more.
In exchange for a dirt-cheap yearly subscription, OkayFreedom VPN gives you 256-bit encryption, OpenVPN protocol support, and a diverse server network. It’s worth noting that there’s a free version as well, but the 500 MB data cap and annoying ads will force you to either upgrade or give up.
This VPN definitely is enticing as far as pricing goes, but there is always a tradeoff — in this case it’s barebones functionality with no real focus on must-have features. No kill switch, port forwarding, or leaking fail safe here.

“Everyone deserves to surf privately online if they want to.” Those are the words of Opera’s Vice President of Marketing, Steve Kelly. And, trust us, that belief shines through the company’s one of a kind service.
Free for all, the Opera browser comes with a built-in VPN. Better yet, it’s exceptionally fast and has a built-in ad blocker for good measure.
So, it’s free and it’s fast, but what else?
Well, after acquiring Canadian VPN service SurfEasy last year, Opera has servers in 5 locations including the US.
There used to be an Opera VPN mobile app but they discontinued it this year. Instead, the web browser is available on mobile devices as Opera Mini.

Here’s a VPN with some serious pedigree. Private Tunnel is a creation of the same team behind the powerhouse in VPN protocols — OpenVPN.
With such a resumé, Private Tunnel has some high expectations to live up to. Unfortunately, it trips on the doorstep — what you’re looking at is a US-based VPN that has to comply with intrusive data retention laws, and as such collects hefty amounts of logs and other user data.
So, Private Tunnel isn’t all that private. Torrenting is out of the question, as DMCA requests are taken very seriously. And you won’t unblock Netflix, Hulu, or BBC iPlayer.
If you’re still willing to give this VPN a chance, you’ll find top-shelf encryption ... read more
