    Maybe just use one of the VPN services that are commonly mentioned on Wilders? Or have a look at TorrentFreak's latest VPN review, which seems unbiased. Be careful about other sites that review VPN services. They're mostly just paid advertising.

    It looks more like a browser proxy than a true VPN. The marketing on this giveaway is deceptive too. It is really just a one month trial of the paid service which is expensive. Even for free, I passed on this one.

    There are much better VPNs for what they charge. PIA has a discount offer going. You can get a coupon for another 10% discount if you give them an email address. A disposable one worked fine.

    There are several other VPN deals on that site but the only other one with a decent and well established reputation is Boleh which doesn't really cost that much more Hide My IP.

    No. Do not use Hide My IP. It's garbage. I wouldn't trust them with my security and privacy.
