Betternet Review

Tina de Pierre
A free VPN services that masks IP address and encrypts connection
A review of Betternet by Tina de Pierre

Betternet is a privacy-enhancing Virtual Private Network (VPN) tool which allows users to create a tunnel connection to the Internet.

The application has several useful functions, but the most popular would be to mask your IP address and possible access regionally-restricted web sites and video services.

Worth noting with Betternet is the privacy-protection angle which encrypts your Internet traffic. This can be an important guard against data theft.

The main layout of the program is not just modern, but extremely easy-to-use. Simply click the "Connect" button. After a few seconds, you should be connected to the Betternet VPN. A clock will display how long you've been connected for, including how much data has been uploaded and downloaded.

Unfortunately with Betternet, you're not able to select the region you connect to, making it possibly difficult to circumvent regional-based restrictions.

Overall though, Betternet is one of the faster free VPN services and does provide a level of privacy protection.

Betternet features and highlights:
  • Unlimited free VPN accounts for a PC
  • Unblocks regionally-restricted web sites
  • Access potential regional TV channels
  • Secure connection ensures privacy
