    Anyone have experience with any of these:


    Hotspot Shield


    Free VPN


    proXPN


    Are they normally very slow?

    More importantly, how safe and effective are they to use?

    I use proXPN. It's good for random trolling and what have you, but I'm not confident enough to do anything serious with it.

    I use free vpn..they are ok but you have to remember they reset themselves every 12 hours. Pro shield is bs because it is easily detected as a proxy on facebook etc, I like free vpn because it just looks like a hosted sharing device so to facebook and youtube it looks like you are on your college campus in the computer lab basically.

    They're Free because they're sht.

    Use HMA Pro VPN instead.

    yeah, but I REALLY wonder though, you'd think that these multi-million dollar companies would be up on VPN's , proxies etc, (including ALL companies that provide them...) :eek:
