Private Tunnel VPN : Free Secure VPN Service

Private Tunnel is a free VPN (virtual private networking) service from OpenVPN Technologies Inc. It allows you to spoof your IP address, encrypt your data transfer over the internet and block attack websites. It is very useful if you are trying to access the geographically locked content. For example, the BBC website allows to watch free TV online only if you are from the UK. Using Private Tunnel, you can spoof your IP address and make it appear to be from UK and access those TV shows.

You can download and install Private Tunnel VPN client from its website. The download is available for Windows, Mac and Android. The site indicates that a version for iPod/iPhone is on its way. The download for Windows is around 6 megabytes. The installation process is very easy. After the installation, you would be shown a window where you can log-in to your Private Tunnel account. If you do not have an account then you can also sign up for a free account through the same window. The free account comes with 100MB data transfer. You can choose a server from San Jose (USA), Chicago (USA), London (UK), Zurich (Switzerland) and Montreal (Canada).

Private Tunnel also places an icon in the system tray of Windows. When you get connected to a server the icon changes to a green color. You can right-click on this icon to see various information about the VPN connection like status, the VPN server, username, data used and total data for your account. You can also disconnect the VPN connection by selecting the Disconnect from this menu. If you select Goto Private Tunnel then it would open the connection window where you can enter username, password and choose a VPN server.

Private Tunnel is extremely easy to use and at the same time gives you the flexibility to select a VPN server of your choice. I tried all the servers and they all worked very well. The only problem is that free version offers only 100MB data transfer which can be used up in one day by users like me. The paid service of Private Tunnel offers 50GB for $12 a year, 100GB for $20 a year, and 500GB for $50 a year.

Private Tunnel is a reliable and secure VPN service that can encrypt your data transfer to thwart the man-in-the-middle attacks. It also has the capability to block malicious and attack sites providing you with a safer internet environment. It can also spoof your IP address and allows you to access content permitted for a specific country or the content blocked by your country.
