If you’re a somewhat savvy Internet user, you surely know by now that a good VPN service is absolutely essential to ensuring that your privacy is guarded while you surf. A VPN solution, or virtual private network, funnels your Internet traffic through an intermediary server and hides your real IP address from the sites and services you use online. This means that you remain anonymous to websites, services and perhaps most importantly, advertisers, so that they cannot track your browsing habits to build profiles and serve you targeted ads.

There are plenty of VPN services out there that are worth paying for, but some people simply won’t cough up the cash no matter how much they value their privacy. Well lucky for them, there’s a terrific free unlimited VPN option out there that will safeguard you without costing an arm and a leg.

Betternet is an effective VPN solution that uses a different model to make money. Instead of charging a monthly fee like most VPN providers, Betternet offers its service for free and asks that users support the company by installing apps from its partners to try them.

There’s nothing forcing you to install these apps and you can always uninstall the ones you don’t like. It’s a small price to pay for free VPN service that guards your info and keeps you anonymous while you browse.

Betternet Technologies offers versions of its app for the iPhone/iPad and Android, and there’s also a Chrome browser extension so you can use the company’s VPN service on your Mac or Windows PC. You’ll find the app’s full description below along with download links for all three versions.
