SecureVPN Free Online Privacy is an incredibly simple to use Virtual Private Network (VPN) app for Android.
Developed by SecureVPN.com Inc, SecureVPN Free Online Privacy lets you surf the web anonymously and bypass firewalls (e.g. corporate or university restrictions) allowing you to browse freely without worry of being tracked.
SecureVPN Free Online Privacy offers several notable features, with one being an immediate 1,000 MB of secure VPN data for free initially (with more available to purchase), along with unlimited bandwidth for free.
It also offers anonymous web surfing, thereby hiding your IP address and device’s identity from websites that you view. This is great for viewing sites that are tagged with various ads (e.g. Google Adsense) that tend to follow you around even after you’ve visited a specific website.
In addition it also unblocks websites and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) services to let you browse the web without worrying about coming across blocked and restricted websites. Simply enable SecureVPN Free Online Privacy and bypass those internet/IP firewalls.
You’re also protected while using public WiFi hotspots around the world and, according to their website, it uses a “military grade VPN connection encryption.”
If you want to appear to be coming from a different geography, no problem. It can change where you want your VPN to be based out of, with currently the U.S., Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Singapore (not free) available to be selected.
Perhaps one of the best things about SecureVPN Free Online Privacy is that it makes sure that none of your activity is logged. So don’t worry about that shady man at the table across from you looking at your Android device, since none of your online activity is saved.
Appearance and Layout
This app is remarkably simple in its appearance with only a few options pertaining to the VPN Plan, VPN Access, and VPN Data limit. Besides those few options, SecureVPN Free Online Privacy displays a large green Connect power button that you simply tap on to enable your own VPN.
Once you tap to connect to the protected VPN, you’re all set to browse around and can easily disconnect by tapping the green button again.
Overall, we think that the appearance and layout are decent and easy enough for anyone to use.
The value of SecureVPN Free Online Privacy is superb with its initial free subscription. However, since you are limited to only 1,000 MB of data transfer amid other restrictions, the Premium version seems to be a bit more useful.
The Premium version costs $3.99 per month or $34.99 per year via an in-app purchase and allows “Full network access (P2P file transfers, etc.), unlimited VPN session duration, unlimited data transfer, and up to five connected devices.
Overall, SecureVPN Free Online Privacy is definitely a recommended download. It’s simple to use, offers a useful array of features, performs well, and is free (for the occasional user).
SecureVPN Free Online Privacy requires Android 4.0. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
