A Complete Review On Free Mac VPN

Free Mac VPN
Written by Hassan Abbas

What do you know about a free Mac VPN? A VPN is essential for 3 main things. The first thing is to unblock content that’s not available in your country. Securing anyone from observing your online activities and preventing your connection while using public Wi-Fi.

So long as you don’t like to stream video, a free VPN probably be all you want. However, in some situations, their limitation when compared to paid-for services will make them other to useless.

For instance, some free choices enable you to use a specific amount of data per day (or month). When the limit is reached, either the VPN connection stopped and you’ll return back to your normal Wifi connection. Or else, you’ll find that you can’t browse the web or stream videos or music.

The 2nd big limitation is on which of the provider’s servers you can use. Well, they’re not in the area you want, either because their distance from you is too big. It means slower Wifi speeds, or else you can’t unblock US Netflix because there’s no US server to choose.

Free Mac VPN -> Safe Or Not

Certainly, it’s your data, so you must read the terms and conditions that you know exactly what data could be sold on.

It’s quite rare, though, that VPN services log any kind of data. Also, on free accounts, and none of the suggestions below will do this. Some services will choking speeds, while others make back their costs from your use of their servers by displaying ads.

It’s worth knowing, though, that a paid-for VPN service with no real restriction can work out amazingly cheap. Especially if you don’t mind paying for a subscription in advance which lasts many years. We’ve then view five-year deals offered $0.99 per month (around 76p). But some people putting up with the limitation of free service when you have a fully-fledged one at those kinds of prices.

Surfshark is another best choice at $1.99 per month.

Best Free VPNs:

ProtonVPN

ProtonVPN

ProtonVPN is quite in a different league. Proton VPN forces none of the limitations you’d expect from a free service.

There’s no checking, no ads and you have a wide range of data usage. Proton has lots of servers, but when anyone signed up to the Basic tier can select and pick between them. However, some users can only select Japan, the Netherlands, or the US.

The latter is quite an unexpected bonus. Also, it means that you can easily access websites blocked in Europe. But it can’t unblock Netflix. For that, you want to upgrade to the Visionary or Plus account, which allows you to access ‘Plus’ servers.

Well, Proton is a Swiss-based VPN. So, it’s a good option if privacy is the first priority. And there are many apps for iOS or macOS (also Windows, Android, and Linux compatible) which should cover most.

Remember that only one device can be plugged into the service at any time.

Windscribe

Windscribe

Windscribe is another amazing VPN service that compatibles lots of devices than you might expect. Also, it offers apps for iOS, macOS, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Windows, Android, and – in beta – Linux. Remember that Apple TV can’t provide VPN support, so any service that offers an app will direct you to an awkward method using your Mac or router.

Also, there are lots of browser extensions for Chrome or Firefox. These are quite essential if you want web browsing traffic to go through the VPN connection.

Windscribe provides you a 10GB data allowance per month. Well, it’s huge if we compare it to other free VPNs. There are some servers to select from, with areas in the UK, US, Hong Kong, Germany, France, Netherlands, Norway, Canada, Romania, and Switzerland.

ProtonVPN can’t watch US Netflix and it’s speed can be quite slow. Rather than the claim that the free model doesn’t have any speed limitation.

TunnelBear

TunnelBear

Tunnel Bear is a fun VPN service for all ages. The VPN is owned by antivirus giant McAfee. The free model is also very well known and exists in exactly the same format.

It means that, besides other providers’ free tiers, TunnelBear provides you access to the full list of 23 areas that paying subscribers get. The catch, in this situation, is that you’re only enabled to route 500MB of data through those servers each month.

That is pretty limited, also if you’re only want to use it on open Wi-Fi networks. Well, some users can get through that allowance when the month is up. Also, if you can’t use it up, data can’t roll over.

Twitter users can also tweet bear-related puns to @thetunnelbear to get an additional 500MB that month.

There are lots of other things that free users miss out on. Initially, you have one device plugged to the service, and secondly, only paying users to get Priority support.
