    I found hotspot shield works quite well even as a free VPN service. I might upgrade to the paid service once I get enough money. It allows me to stream youtube videos on google chrome (but strangely not Mozilla Fire Fox). What do you guys think about my observation? Are there any other good free VPNs?

    For many of us here the term GOOD is elusive to definition. Regardless of speed and other benchmarks, the TRUST issue is tough to get around on a FREE service.

    You know the adage about if its too good to be true ---- o_O??

    Bandwidth is very expensive and a thousand users pounding away on a server can eat up a bunch of it. Who really is going to give that away on a consistent basis for nothing in return? Its a fair question and one worth giving some consideration to. My .02

    Yes, you just need to install the software. But, each VPN has different logging policies, and some, well, most, that log, don't go in depth as to what they log. Depending on what your doing, for the amount of free VPN's you have access to, it's nice to have.

    In terms of companies that do free vpn, only two I know of that are good, is tunnelbear, and Cyberghost. Look at their websites to pick which is best for you.

    Have a look at VPNBook. It's free, doesn't require registration, supports PPTP and OpenVPN, and there are no limits on speed or bandwith. The OpenVPN client linked to on the VPNBook website is an old version so it's better to get the latest version from the Community Downloads section of the OpenVPN website.

    VPNBook has two servers optimised for high speed web surfing: one in the UK and the other in the US. There are also two anonymous servers based in Romania that don't do any logging.

    I've tried Security Kiss and thought it was ok. I've not tried ProXPN but it might be worth a go.
