Are there any VPN which we can use like TunnelBeat? I'm looking for a program and not a browser that's free. If there's no free VPN programs, trials can also do.

Is there a way to get a "permanent" VPN without spending money? I tried retweeting TunnelBear's 1GB offerbut it didn't work. Do I have to wait for the next month or is it just a one time thing?

I wouldn't recommend a free VPN since they pretty much all suck. I don't know why you want a VPN, but if it's only to register for region-locked services and stuff like that, you can simply use a proxy. If you really really want a free VPN, the best I know is ProtonVPN, but like I said it sucks.

Answered a similar question in a thread not long back, but you might want to opt for NordVPN or ExpressVPN for free trials. All free VPNs are terrible and they more often than not contain malware. Trust me, I've searched for a good free VPN for the longest time before I gave up and subscribed to ExpressVPN. Don't regret a single cent.

With a free VPN, your are the product.
You probably want a paid VPN.

Here is the link to comparison chart

Use avast secureline VPN or some other paid ones. Honestly, all the free VPNs suck. You can just use opera browser to see how slow free vpn is.

I would, but I'm using a third-party app that doesn't work without VPN from a program.

That's strange, you can set a system-wide proxy and every program should go through there.

I don't know the exact steps but it's somewhere on the network settings. You can probably Google it.

Uhh.. ProtonVPN just failed the installation.


Okay, I'll try "system-wide proxy" out.
Edit: It didn't work either

@Skittles I literally can't find any free trials of those services. I'm underage, I don't have a credit card. Why the heck do they need credit cards when it's a free trial.

Don't use free VPN. As a rule of thumb, if something is free, you are the product. Just buy a paid VPN.

I concur-if something sounds to good to be true it is. The best vpn is one you pay for.

im using a free VPN just to bypass the selective site browsing of our internet plan but ye as they say if you are not paying then you are the product so i would not recommend it

and also free VPN usually are IP range banned on a lot of websites like i cannot vist some popular websites because of IP banned message im getting

so just pay for a VPN if you want

but if you really want to try then search for Indonesian Free VPN like this one https://www.vpnjantit.com/

EDIT:

i also remember this one by Japan https://www.vpngate.net/en/

TunnelBear is a good choice I guess. Hopefully it gives 500MB every month..

I'd recommend Figleaf VPN proxy, here's their site. I've been using it for a year or so, pretty nice.

I assume you want to use it to open blocked site. then I recommend DnsCrypt, it's not exactly a VPN but it does the job and it's free

It depends on the purpose, for example, I use this free vpn for kodi. As for torrenting and browsing, you can use NordVPN, PureVPN or CyberGhost Pro. Though some say NordVPN collects users' data, so I would think twice before paying for it.

Opera's VPN isn't bad if you're broke, but otherwise stay away from "free VPNs." They 're usually pretty shady.

If you need VPN for gaming and gaming only, nothing beats Mudfish. It's data based rather than monthly and $3 could last you couple months to year depends on how much data you are using. (I spend $8 on it so far and lasted me year and half)

ExpressVPN is good for pretty much everything but doesn't have game specific optimization like Mudfish so it's not as good when it comes to gaming but still good and they give you 30 day money back guarantee and you can literally contact rep and ask them for refund day before they charge you. It was hassle free and easy refund. I probably would have kept using this had If I didn't find out about Mudfish. Most IP restricted online games will work with ExpressVPN but some games had problem such as Dragon Nest JP for example, wouldn't even start.

Private Internet Access is good for browsing and pretty cheap and always gets lot of promotions. One time there was like 2 year subscription for $30 CAD or something but not sure if that offer is still available. I wouldn't use this for playing Japan IP restricted games though, unless they fixed the problem since I used it last time. Also I'm not sure if they ever added Korean server or not so unless they added it, I wouldn't recommend it for gamers who plays Korean IP restricted games.

Any one year free VPN that comes with antivirus are decent for everything, browsing works fine, gaming is stable unlike free VPN that DC's you every 15 minutes or so. Just make sure to get one that comes with full VPN rather than crappy one with daily data limit on it. Might be a viable solution to people who rather not pay monthly VPN service fees, plus it's rather cheap when it's on sale. I think I bought Norton Premium 360 for $40 CAD when it was on sale.

I've been known to use ZenMate for Firefox, on occasion. But for the most part I don't rely on VPNs anymore.
1 hour = 10,000 yen.
2 hours = 20,000 yen.
3 hours = 3 loaves of French bread.
4 hours = 4 loaves of French bread.
