Setting up Free VPNs on your Android smartphones and Smart TVs
10 Best 100% FREE VPN Apps For Android Smartphones and Android TVs
There is no free lunch and there are no shortcuts in life but as with everything some big tech companies do give free VPN services if you know where to find them.
For those of who do not understand VPNs – They are Virtual Private Networks- meaning they come between you and the website you are visiting. If your country or your ISP has banned a particular website like a torrent website of NSFW website but it is available throughout the world, you can use an VPN to browse the torrent or the NSFW website. The VPN acts as a windows for you to explore the website while sending the details of the VPN to the service provider thereby bypassing the website ban.
Basically, most of the VPN providers will give you the chance to try their VPN, but at first the speed is slow and the download limit is always capped at a fixed sum. Most of them offer free services so that you can try them out and buy their premium services which come at around $25 (Rs.2500-Rs.3000) a year.
Another way is to download some Free DNS services Apps like 126.96.36.199 App from Cloudflare. This is a unique Free DNS App that offers you VPN like qualities for free unless you want to download their Warp+ service. Even without Warp+. the Cloudflare 188.8.131.52 App is pretty nifty and allows you to surf all the banned websites in a jiffy. You can download the 184.108.40.206 Cloudflare App here.
However, there is a drawback in 220.127.116.11 Cloudflare App. They may block some sites which the U.S. government has deemed unwanted.
Cloudflare has also launched its free DNS service for Windows and MacOS called 18.104.22.168 for Families. This app is unlike the Android App and can censor adult content and block website in the name of blocking malware.
You can also download the Opera Browser which comes with a built-in VPN which lets you browse the banned websites and adult content for free. You can download the Opera Browser with Free VPN here. The only drawback is that you can only use the Opera Browser for surfing the blocked content and adult websites.
Now we are going to view some of the pure VPN service providers who offer some free download time before you have to purchase the premium services.
