Keenow Unblocker does exactly what it says on the tin – it unblocks streaming services. And on its own terms, Keenow Unblocker is a resounding success. The VPN service is secondary to the smart DNS service, and as a backup technology that also brings some privacy and security benefits, it is fine. Indeed, at least some of Keenow’s servers appear to use excellent security, and the client includes many useful features.
- Unblocks almost every streaming service
- Fully-featured Windows VPN software
- Great Android app
- Strong OpenVPN security (at best settings)
- P2P torrenting is permitted
As a free volunteer-run anti-censorship tool, VPN Gate is difficult to knock. So respect to the VPN Gate developers at the University of Tsukuba, and all VPN Gate Sever volunteers. Unfortunately, in practice, I found VPN Gate far too slow to ever be worth my while using.
- Open source
- Lots of server locations
- Very Slow
- Extensive connection logs kept (and will comply with investigations).
