There are presently many threats and restrictions online, and here are just a few examples.
  • Using public WiFi hotspot can easily give hackers the opportunity to access such private information as names and passwords
  • ISPs and websites generally track your online activities to give you targeted advertisements, which are irritating in most cases
  • You may not access some websites simply because you are located in a "wrong" geographical region

Thankfully, you can use Betternet to protect your online activities and have full access to the Internet. The free VPN service works like a proxy but provides higher security.

Using Betternet

We did not need to make any subscription or registration to use the program and neither did we have to deal with irritating ads.

According to the developers, they are able to cover all their costs by working with third-party networks that recommend the most appropriate apps for users. The promoters pay them whenever users install the free apps, which are bundled in the software, and they even publish monthly statistics showing the number of users, total income and percentage of Betternet expenses.

The application's simple user interface had only one button that we clicked to connect.

Betternet allowed us to bypass Internet restrictions and access unnecessarily censored websites. It virtually removed all boundaries, allowing us to even evade firewalls to circumvent VoIP limitations, unblock Facebook and watch YouTube.

In addition, the software enabled us to surf the Internet anonymously by changing our IP address. It displayed the new address and location on its minimalist user interface. We could also see the time we had spent using the program and disconnect or let it reconnect automatically.

We did not experience any lag in performance. The software automatically detected our location and connected us to the nearest server to ensure fast service.

Conclusion

Simply put, Betternet provides a better Internet experience without regional restrictions or privacy concerns. Users browse the Internet anonymously and without the fear of hackers intercepting their information. The service fully encrypts and transfers all data. The program does not require much intervention from the user. A single click allows you to connect to the VPN and enjoy the services free of charge.

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: We checked the file locally with avast, McAfee, and Malwarebytes' Antimalware, all of which reported the file as clean. We also checked the file with VirusTotal.com which scans files with over 50 different virus scanners:

It appears that Avira is reporting a false-positive. We test with multiple virus scanners to ensure the integrity of the results.

We also scanned the website URL:

We'll continue to check this program as the virus definitions are updated. If we find malicious code, we'll certainly pull the listing.
