TechIndia – Although useful, some free VPN (Virtual Private Network) applications can be quite dangerous for internet users. Therefore, we must be very clever in choosing it.
VPN or virtual private network is a private network that is held on a public network. By using a VPN, users can send or receive data on a public network but appear to be connected directly to a private network.
Thus, VPN users will naturally get a variety of advantages that a private network has, from functions, security to management. One of them, users can have secret access even if they are on a public network.
Or simply, when we use VPN, people outside this network will not know what data or services we are accessing. Therefore, this service is usually used to open up blocking access by the government.
Well unfortunately, even though it seems very useful, free VPN users must be careful. Although it cannot be seen by the public, all VPN user data can be seen by the provider.
The National Siber and Sandi (BSSN) India Agency revealed, with this free VPN access, user data (profiling, passwords and personal accounts, or banking data) can be utilized by irresponsible providers. In addition, users can also be infected by malware.
But of course, this is especially true for careless free VPN users, who don’t have a verified reputation. Then, is anyone verified? The answer, of course there are, here are some of them.
For seasoned internet users it should be familiar with DNS 22.214.171.124. Cloudflare-made DNS alternatives are now also available in application form. Besides being safe, this alternative DNS is also claimed to be able to be used to speed up internet connection by 28 percent.
For those of you who have never heard of Cloudflare, this digital company is one company that can be trusted. This American company provides content delivery network services, DDoS mitigation, Internet security and distributed domain name server services.
Interestingly, although it is available for free, this application does not use advertising as another source of income. That is, this application is available absolutely free and can be downloaded at the Google Play Store and the App Store.
In addition to 126.96.36.199, TunnelBear can also be the right choice to access the internet privately. The application, which is available on the Google Play Store and the App Store, also offers fast, safe and no ads.
But unfortunately, for ordinary users, TunnelBear limits free VPN access to 500MB per month. To get unlimited access, users can become premium users.
Especially for those of you who use devices made by Samsung, the Samsung Max application which is already available on the Google Play Store can also be an alternative to accessing the internet without blocking.
This application made by Samsung not only offers a secure internet path, but also has several features that can specifically be used to save data, manage application connections, and so on.
