The Best Free VPN Services Of 2018

The Best Free VPN Services Of 2018
Free VPNs can do many of the same things as paid VPNs, so if your needs aren't great you may well be able to make do with one of the best free VPNs we list here. There are also other ways to hide your IP address, but a VPN is probably the best option for most people.

Free VPN vs Paid VPN: What's the difference?
In our extensive testing of VPNs - both free and paid services - it is apparent that you will be significantly more satisfied if you're willing to spend just a few pounds a month on something like NordVPN, which is our current pick of the bunch.

We've reviewed a whole range of VPNs, however, and recommend viewing all the options to see which best suits your needs.

In general, free VPNs tend to offer lower data allowances, fewer server locations and slower performance.

You can likely put up with two of these three differences, especially if all you want to do is watch US Netflix from the UK, but the meagre data allowances are more difficult to ignore. As soon as you go over the limit you'll either need to uninstall the VPN and find another free version, or you'll find yourself paying for it anyway.

That said, it's often willing installing a free VPN before you pay for a service just to see how you get on with it. And with that in mind we present four of the best free VPN options available today.

What's the best free VPN?

Tunnel Bear
Tunnel Bear is our free VPN of choice. Its full version featurs in our overall VPN chart at number four, and we have a review of it available for you to read here (spoiler: we awarded it 4.5/5 stars).

It operates servers in 20 countries, including the UK, US, Australia, Canada and more. That means you'll be able to protect your privacy, as well as connect to region blocked streaming services.

The difference between the free and the subscription services are mostly concerned with your data allocation. The free service gives you 500MB per month although you can request an increase to 1GB via Twitter.

Apparently, bear-related puns increase your chances of success. Beyond this you can pay either monthly or annually for unlimited data. The download speed was reported as a respectable 12Mb/s.


Windscribe

Windscribe's free version is reasonably good, offering unlimited devices, a firewall, adblock and P2P. However, the limitations emerge when you start looking at the number of server locations (there are 11 compared with the 50 you'll get with the paid-for version) and your bandwidth, which is limited to 10GB per month.

You can have a look at which servers you'll be missing out on in Windscribe's handy comparison on its pricing page.


ProtonVPN
Another free option that's even more limited is ProtonVPN, which has just three countries available, only works on one device and has a low speed.

Still, it could be worth a try if you don't get on with Tunnelbear or Windscribe, before you decide to pay for one of the VPNs in our chart.


Opera
The latest version of the Opera web browser now includes a VPN client. Unlike other browsers, this isn't an extension or add-on: it's part of the browser. And it really is free, so you're not limited on the amount of data you use per month and you won't have to pay for a subscription.

To use the feature you have to go to the O menu, then Settings, then Privacy & Security and toggle the free VPN on.
