Anonymous VPNs

krozar asked 2 years ago

I have started to love anon VPNs. I use my current one all the time. Wondering if anyone else have recommendations and maybe we can produce a list of sorts here.

Essentially a VPN tunnels all net traffic to a server. Anon VPNs use at least 128 bit encryption. Also they do not keep logs.

Got interested in them when I read about IPREDator at The Pirate Bay.

There can be latency and bandwidth issues. specially since many are in Europe. However I am using Anonine (Sweden) right now from the US and get pretty decent speeds. Latency can jump up to 650ms in games but it's not really meant for that anyhow. It's also dirt cheap.

There is one in the Netherlands that has a free VPN account, itshidden.com. That one is slower but it gives you an idea of how it works.

Something similar at torrentprivacy.com where you download their app and it only works for torrents. Depending on your use that can be a big plus if all you're doing is hiding from the anti-piracy bots that have been sending DRM notices for downloading Fedora Core =/.

Just a few days ago I was reading about ShadowVPN which uses openVPN and 256bit AES encryption. They are based in Panama but unable to find many reviews on it.

StrongVPN (US based) allows you to use any of their 72 servers (different geographic IPs and I would assume latency reasons too) but is expensive for the full package. Otherwise you get SF and NYC.

Many out there. Looking for people who have experience with them and what some good ones might be for $10 or less per month.

Be aware that a lot of enterprise firewalls are getting wise to anonymizer services like this. It's probably not a good idea to use these to bypass restrictions on corporate LAN's. But to maintain your anonymity, that's OK.
