Free VPN downloads seem too good to be true — and they often are. Most of these offers won’t let you download without signing up, and many are super low quality. Besides, the majority of free VPN downloads can’t unblock popular streaming sites and have restrictions that make them almost useless. After testing 200+ free...
Torrenting isn’t just potentially unsafe in the USA — it can be risky from anywhere without the right online security. Every time you torrent, you risk exposing yourself to hackers, trackers, and malware. Luckily, there’s an easy solution to this. A reliable VPN can help you torrent safely in the US by encrypting your internet...
The Pirate Bay can be a dangerous site for many reasons. It hosts tons of illegal content and many of the files aren’t verified as safe. If you accidentally download a shady torrent file, you could break your device with malware. And since it’s not regulated, it’s a haven for hackers who can collect your...

It’s never fun to waste time scrolling through dozens of servers to find one that will let you keep watching your favorite show. In addition, while some VPNs can access Netflix reliably, they may only work well with a...
VPN free trials aren’t all equal. From limited features to restricted bandwidth and shortened data caps, the limitations can be frustrating. It’s not even worth testing a VPN if you don’t have access to all of its features. To save you time and frustration, my team and I tested 50 VPN free trials and shortlisted...
After using a premium VPN for years, I was curious if any free services could save me money and offer the same benefits (without risking my online safety).

Netflix is renowned for its super strong VPN-blocking technology — even the best VPNs can get blocked by Netflix eventually. It’s annoying to have to go searching for another server that works just to be able to continue the show you’re watching. Sometimes VPNs that work well with Netflix can only access a few different...
