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.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
