- Use Cases
Traditionally a free VPN account is something every VPN service provider would avoid offering due to the potential risk of abuse.
However, nowadays there is a number of free VPN account providers who offer basic VPN services for free or in exchange for some social shares. However, beware of free VPN providers who collect or steal your data and sell it to 3rd parties to make money, or steal your bandwidth as in the case with Hola.
We strongly discourage anyone looking for a free VPN account from signing up for such a VPN service as this carries a serious privacy risk. For more information read this article on botnet style vpn providers like Hola.
It is far better to sign up for a free VPN from a reputable quality premium VPN provider. Most free VPNs come with a number of limitations, which we’ll look at in more detail below.
Generally speaking, most free VPNs will have limited features and choice of VPN protocols. The vast majority of free VPN account providers offer PPTP VPN protocol. Our readers should know that this protocol has been cracked and is considered as the least secure VPN protocol on the market. On the other hand, quality free VPN service providers (and premium VPN providers) offer users a choice of PPTP, OpenVPN, SSTP, IKEv2 and L2TP/IPSEC protocols.
Another difference between quality free VPN and a typical free VPN is the server locations on their VPN network. Most free VPNs would not have servers locate in UK or US, mostly due to the concerns of abuse. So finding a VPN to access streaming service like Hulu would not be possible on most free VPNs.
Nevertheless, while most VPNs are priced under $10 per month (some like Zoog VPN as low as $3), this may be more than some people can afford, so free VPNs are always appreciated.
While most free VPNs are very limited, as mentioned above, Zoog is proud to provide a more complete VPN service at zero cost. Here is what is included in Zoog VPN’s Free VPN Plan.
Although the free VPN plan offered by Zoog VPN is among the best on the market, the plan is still considered as a starting point for anyone looking to try out the service before upgrading to a low cost premium plan. There are many benefits of a premium VPN plan compare to free VPN plans which you can find in our Paid VPN v Free VPN comparison article.
