    Came across this one, but I never tried it out:

    Use it at your own risk, I am not responsible.

    This one works well but is a homepage hijacker. One thing to keep in mind is these vpn's could be and from what i've read - some are - honeypot's. I only use free vpn to access usa tele sites that restrict traffic outside the US.

    IMO, don't trust any of them (NSA keeps coming to mind) :eek:

    Besides AnchorFree, which free VPN business model is based on serving you advertising as you browse the internet with their free VPN, I can't understand how someone can afford to pay out of their own pocket for a server its maintenance and a massive amount of bandwith, then give it away for free to others.

    That is why I don't trust free VPNs, I am afraid they maybe honeypots too.
