The Tor network aims to provide users with truly anonymous internet access. In some ways, then, it serves a similar purpose to using a VPN. There are core differences between the technologies, however, that in practical terms make them useful in quite different ways. Read my Tor Network Review to find out more!
- Extremely private
- Provides Anonymity
- Access the deep web
- Too slow for streaming
- Quite technical.
“Free VPN” is now an integrated feature of Opera’s stable desktop browsers.. Despite its nomenclature, however, this feature is really a proxy service rather than a true VPN. A true VPN encrypts your entire internet connection, while Opera’s “Free VPN” only encrypts the data from your browser. Using this “VPN” does not protect your BitTorrent downloads or other internet activity outside the Opera browser.
- It’s 100% free which is all our favorite price!
- No data limits is hard to argue with when you ares not paying for the service
- Pretty darn fast for a free service – it even beats some paid-for VPNs
- 5 server locations in useful places but not the UK
- Ad-blocking on mobile devices
