Lol, I forgot the LEGO movie is free on YouTube today, that’s funny you can get it as an ad.
Edit: Well this is now my most upvoted comment so yay, given that this is top comment here’s the link to the
Edit 2: It seems a lot of people can’t watch the movie because it’s blocked in their country, in this case try using a vpn,
Betternet is a good free one for mobile and pc.
And free VPNs are very leaky and can't be trusted. There was recently a company that flamboyantly advertised a "zero log policy" but after a court case that was proved to be furthest from the truth.
Paid VPNs are hard to get hold of as a kid. All I can recommend is FlashVPN for Android, and maybe Betternet cracked from (search the site) for windows. FlashVPN only has ads in the app to connect, just hit back and disable smart tunnel for the best speeds
My school has that same filter, and sometimes blocks odd sites with the reason "friendship content"
Edit: Betternet for Android and Windows is a VPN that will get around iBoss. Some other android apps work as well.
I think the fact is that trusting a free product to protect your privacy when they need to monetize is risky.
There's a reason people pay for VPNs. You pay so that the company can run servers and not sell your data or inject ads. While Betternet claims they don't log, why should I believe them over a more reputable service like Private Internet Access?
At least with FrootVPN they're located overseas at least so its a bit less risky in terms of privacy with the NSA and what not.
Use a VPN. This'll hide your IP Address and location.
There's free ones such as Betternet online
But just to let you know, Adobe could care less about if individuals pirate their software. Adobe only cracks down on companies for piracy, as individuals pirating increases their market saturation.
Well shit. I hope they don’t see this tho. It’s only thru xfinity WiFi and I’m using the reddit app, so hopefully it won’t show the specifics page address I’m on.
Edit: I’m using Betternet VPN, I looked up online and saw the website says it provides end to end encryption, not sure if I get that without premium but I’m still hoping.
Also, if your parents are tracking what websites you visit, get a VPN. Get Betternet for your phone, and download Ultrasurf for your computer if you have one. I was in the same situation as you, once. Depression and privacy issues.
Here’s what I did:
DISCLAIMER: before you do any of this, confront her. You probably already have, but I had to say this just in case you haven’t.
Change your passwords. You’re 18 now, and she has no right to look at your private conversations. Make sure to disable fingerprint login on your phone as well. VPN up. Get an app locker for your social media. Create a false persona (for a couple years I was Weston M) and email for yourself and make new accounts using them. When your mom searches for your name, your new accounts won’t show up.
The whole “false identity” thing sounds shady, I know. But if your mom is that determined to spy on you, your attempts at privacy need to be just as, if not more determined.
Yeah. Sites can still see what you're doing
(Get adblockers and tracker blockers, or Private Mode for Firefox Quantum, which has this)
And your ISP can still see
(Get a VPN that doesn't keep logs, Betternet is a good option, it's free. Or use Tor.)
Sells your bandwidth thru a botnet system. Google "Hola VPN incident" and you will jump out of your skin. Someone could technically download child porn through your connection and then you would be stuck for life in prison and labeled as a registered sex offender. Get Betternet/Hexatech or something similar.
The problem is that if you're not restricting it to a single app, all your traffic will be proxied over. Betternet is a company, not a charity. How do you think they are making money? If you care about your privacy I strongly recommend paying for a VPN service so that you are the customer, not the product. Here is a good guide: I personally use Seriously $40 a year for unlimited free information and privacy/anominmity is not to much to ask for.
XHR (XMLHttpRequest) is a method for your browser to communicate with the TagPro server. Normally, WebSockets are used, but if those fail for some reason, it falls back to XHR. However, XHR is much less efficient, which causes the lag you observe.
Since you always experience XHR mode, this indicates that WebSockets communication (port 8000 and up) is blocked.
One possible reason is that you're using an extension instead of a proper VPN connection (outside the browser). Chromium (and therefore also Chrome) doesn't allow extensions to intercept WebSockets connections through the normal webRequest API (here's the relevant bug report from 2012, so perhaps those aren't routed through the VPN and get blocked by your school's routers instead. I'm not familiar with Betternet though, so I can't say for sure that this is the problem.
We have the same filter, I use Betternet or Zenmate (chrome extensions) on my laptop/school desktops, and I'm able to access web stuff fine. Haven't found a good VPN (other than SurfEasy, but that has a data cap) for my phone yet.
.torrent files mean nothing, they caught your ass while you were off Betternet. Also, using free VPN's is just asking for trouble. Even if they don't catch you, you don't really know what they are doing with your data. I personally use NordVPN, because it has zero logs, it is based in Panama so outside 14 eyes jurisdiction and is quite fast. And most importantly: zero threats.
Just a general question, I use Betternet as the VPN on my phone for tormenting through Showbox and Popcorn Time, is that even doing anything?
As long as it stops me from getting another letter in the mail I'm okay with the occasional "Rate us/Watch this ad/Check out our sponsor app".
In order to bypass the preview pass on this site and view multiple episodes try using Betternet's VPN proxy. Once enabled you are pretty much invisible in terms of IP address which allows you to view multiple episodes and makes you more secure while browsing. I've used it on Google Chrome, download and install the app and you should be good to go.
Yes. Get a VPN. The one I used in China to hop around the Great Firewall is called Betternet and it does work really well but it’s a paid app (reasonable price) many reviews were from students trying to get around their high school’s ban hammer. There may be more free ones available that work. Keep in mind that if you are caught your school might not be happy but I think it’s pretty efficient and unlikely to draw attention as long as you’re discreet.
This doesn't work if they have OpenVPN or a router-level protection software. I learned that the hard way. I highly recommend you use Betternet (simple VPN available as a browser extension, mobile app, or download for Windows or Mac) along with incognito mode, just in case they're watching through that stupid router level shit.
For the lazy:
Web Developer 0.4.9
Infinity New Tab 3.12.3
Web Paint 1.2.1
Social Fixer 20.1.1
TouchVPN (version not provided)
Betternet VPN (version not provided)
I don't know about psiphon, but
In particular, two VPN apps (Flash Free VPN  and Betternet ), which combined have more than
6M installs, have the highest number of embedded tracking libraries: 11 and 14 respectively.
Tell me if I missed something!
EDIT Added VLC
Use a cheap paid VPN like PIA (Private Internet Access) I think it’s like $3.33 a month if you buy a year in bulk; very worth it in my opinion but if you don’t wanna pay for a VPN I suggest Hotspot Shield, Hexatech, or Betternet (all in the AppStore)
Dude, Betternet is a free VPN. Use it. I don't agree with their practices, and it certainly isn't what you want to use for privacy, but if your only use for a VPN is to prevent your ISP from catching you pirating, it's perfect.
Apple was cracking down on VPN adblocker apps. Not VPN apps. Many VPN apps like the ones you mentioned as well as Betternet (what I use for backup when my self-hosted VPN isn't working) and many legitimate business VPN apps like Cisco AnyConnect and others. VPN apps are still perfectly allowed; it's just the apps that started a "local" VPN server (or pretended to) on your iPhone are no longer allowed.
Use the browser version of the app and get the Betternet extension (or any VPN extension). Activate it before you create your alt so the IP isn’t connected to your account. After joining, feel free to delete the extension. Easy peasy. And if Discord asks for your phone number verification, just enter it, you can use the same number as many times as you want with any account
Going by a quick Google search reviews don't seem that great.
A paid VPN is fairly cheap (I pay $32 a year for PIA) to me it's well worth it. I get much better speeds than I would with a free VPN and I get to deal with a company that I believe I can trust. It's nice that free VPNs are available, but they have to make money somehow and they're most likely doing it with your data.
That said if you do want a free VPN I remember people saying nice things about Betternet awhile back. I can't vouge for them though so use at your own risk.
Install Betternet VPN on chrome (it's free). Once installed, select US proxy and then go to and you will have access to all the videos. You may need to still log in with xfinity but it will work because of the VPN.
Betternet is not a true VPN, it's a simple proxy routing extension that changes your IP. It doesn't do any encryption and since it is entirely ad based all the cookies and monitoring from 3rd party sites is still routed through your original IP. It's right there in the TOS. It's probably the best completely free option out there if you don't care about encryption or 3rd party site tracking.
NO MAMES! Nosotros identificamos problemas serios con un router de Bestel, que usa IZZI. Curiosamente tanto IMGUR como REDDIT están lentísisisisísimos desde ayer, pero no hemos visto más que algunos paquetes perdidos hacia otros sitios. También jala machín usando datos de Telcel, por lo que aislamos la bronca a la red de IZZI. Lo solucionamos fácil: usa un VPN. En Chrome estamos usando Betternet Unlimited Free VPN Proxy y lo puedes instalar gratis desde la Chrome Store. Es la 1a. vez que veo que alguien postea la misma bronca, así que ahí está la solución, al menos temporal. Hay VPNs para móviles, habría que buscarle.
If you are going to watch it on phone which is available on both iOS and Android then use Betternet (it’s free)
If you are going to use it on other devices, use Zenmate ( You will need to paid subscription in order to access the specific USA server which is the ‘West’ server that works with Netflix)
These two are the VPNs that I’ve used to watch the watch and worked flawlessly during that time. PM me if you got more questions.
Just did this for Xbox One, whilst in London and it worked.
Done it through my Android Tablet so you could do this through mobile if you wanted to.
Here are my steps;
Note: ONLY REDEEM THE CODE WHEN THE GAME COMES OUT
Not Bullshit. Internet privacy and free VPN are two opposing ideas. Generally anything providing a free service on the internet is selling your data. More specific to Betternet, a 2017 study on VPNs about whether injecting malware, adware, are just not providing the security that they advertised found that Betternet is the fourth worst VPN in regards to all that. It has an AV-rank of thirteen according to VirusTotal. An AV-Rank of two is considered to be a likely indication of malware presence.
Do you have a cellphone? If you do and you are using WiFi. You can download and use a VPN app for free that bypasses any blocks on wifi. Betternet is a good free one. Or if you have a little bit of money to spend Nord VPN is a better quality VPN and your account can be used on mobile and your PC.
These can be used as chrome extensions so you can just sign into your chrome account and your extension will be turn it on and bypass and blocka
Used a couple of free ones on my phone whilst I was there a couple of years ago.
Betternet was the one I used the most.
Some hotels/hostels had the VPN over their network so guests could access what they wanted.
As Google Chrome extention i prefer Touch VPN, for windows it's better to pay for good service, i heard NordVPN is a reasonable one. If you still want something free - try Betternet and Windscribe but it's not great.
Edit: This program and suggestes how to avoid it
It's either called Betternet or VPN Proxy Master. The first one has a blue shield as the logo and the second one has a white key and green background. I was using both of them so I'm not sure which one it was
Betternet is selling your data and leaking your IP. Don't use a "free" VPN. Check /r/vpn for some quality recommendations.
And just fyi, circumventing a law means you are still acting illegally, just far less likely to be caught.
Betternet is pretty good. 2 bad things, though: it uses "third-party advertising" to fund itself, but you can just get AdBlock to stop that. The other thing is there are only 2 servers you can connect to: the US and the UK. Other than that though, it's a pretty good free VPN.
What do you have? Android or IOS?
You do know betternet is a thing right? It's a free VPN that's not Hotspot shield. So there is no limit, I would recommend you watch the advertisements that are offered, they need the money, and you can skip the ads at any time, they just ask you watch them.
If it's PC, then try DotVPN, it's browser based. They can't block chrome store.
If you can't download the apps because of google play being blocked, if it's android, you can download an APK of betternet online, or download it from home and then USB port it to your phone and install it like that.
Betternet also has a desktop version.
You could use the free legal download
I mean I watch twitch at 720p without any buffering but youtube doesnt run at 360p without buffering. So its definitely throttled. The easiest way I could watch youtube was to install the Betternet vpn add-on from google chrome app store. At least it ran youtube at 360p without buffering lol
For anyone outside of US that uses chrome... I had no luck with Hola VPN extension on either CBS or Masters websites. I tried the Betternet Unlimited VPN extension and both CBS and Masters streaming work.
Thank you for your response. I think it's safe to assume everyone here either has or is looking to purchase an s7. I downloaded ThumbJam and SoundCamp but I'm using Betternet and really don't need a VPN.
I can't try out the apps right now but I will get to them later.
> I think Tunnel bear
Tunnel Bear doesn't allow torrents.
It's a lot easier to just get a paid torrent friendly VPN. Search through /r/VPNTorrents.
You get sent to The Temple of Doom, where you work the rest of your days as a builder slave.
Nah, just kidding. Just use a VPN that doesn't track anything (Betternet is a good start) and you'll be fine.
I was there less then two weeks ago. Betternet worked if you want a free option. Sometimes it would take 10-15 minutes to connect. There is also ExpressVPN, is a good paid option and those in our group never complained about it. I also picked up one from a local called VPN-SGreen VPN that gives you 200MB for free before cutting you off. They were just using it for Instagram though.
I don’t know much about VPN’s and which are ‘real’ ones and not, I understand Betternet is a bit more on the proxy side.
I tried NordVPN and couldn’t get it figured out.
I personally prefer Spotify, and I read somewhere they're negotiating to buy Soundcloud which would hopefully mean their library gets added to spotify one day if it goes through.
As mention below, use a VPN to create a US account. If you don't have one, try download Betternet which is free and might do the trick, not tested since I have a VPN but don't see why it wouldn't.
I signed up to a free 3 month trial some time ago and canceled a day before. It was a promotional trial offer. Currently there's only 30 days
After my 3 months trial ended, I created a new account, started another 30 day free trial, and followed by old account and added my other account's playlist to my new account. If you're not too picky about playlists and having to spend 5 mins to do this every now and then, you could enjoy premium features for free.
Did you even read the linked article? makes it sound like all of the VPN providers listed are logging activity, when that is not the case. The source article mentions several VPN providers as "storing email address" -- being a form of logging.
Specifically; Betternet, Acevpn, and iPredator.
Betternet - VPN I use at school to bypass any blocks they have on websites. This is how I Netflix in math class.
Metal For Facebook - The facebook app, but with less battery drain.
Reddit Sync - My favorite minimalist Reddit app.
Google Rewards - Receive play store credit for taking 3 questions surveys once in a while.
This guy is in school. Unlikely he will pay for a VPN. Betternet is one of the more well known VPNs so I think he'll be fine.
Many of these free VPNs are known to analyse your traffic and sell the data on. But for the purpose of torrenting it'll do.
Incognito blocks history and cookies from being stored on your computer. However, service providers and such can still see your viewing history. Going on certain websites can give them a red flag. I would suggest downloading a free VPN, such as Betternet. This will help provide extra security.
It's an ad. Go grab Betternet or some free VPN for some form of protection- you should be fine without one but just to make sure. If they catch you you'll just get a letter, nothing more.
Also, go install Ublock Origin to block shitty ads like that
Good info here:
Yes you can use a VPN to subscribe to the international version. Betternet is free and can be used on laptops or phones etc etc.
I don't live in the U.S. and had it last year and Gamepass is freaking perfect even on a shitty internet connection. Highly recommend if you can afford it.
>According to the latest report published by the researchers at Proofpoint on Monday, the expanded list of compromised Chrome Extensions are as below:
Infinity New Tab (3.12.3)
Web Paint (1.2.1)
Social Fixer (20.1.1)
Proofpoint researcher Kafeine also believes Chrome extensions TouchVPN and Betternet VPN were also compromised in the same way at the end of June.
Alright so I tried using the first solution in OP and it works well.
I used a FREE vpn called Betternet which claims to have no bandwidth limit.
I went into incognito mode on chrome and copied my mega link into megadownloader. I then clicked "Connect" on the Betternet desktop app. Afterwards I added the links and started the download. The bandwidth is throttled but I'm still getting a decent download speed. I'm getting around 4-7 MB/s whereas I usually get 17/18 MB/s. And this is with 2/3 parallel downloads. Also whenever the download speed drops to 0.00 B/s or megadownloader appears to stall or there's an error in one of the downloads, I disconnect from Betternet then reconnect and it resumes downloading. Whenever you do this it changes your IP.
I tried this method on 3 separate 10 gig downloads and it worked consistently. Although it's definitely not as fast as before, it still works very well.
Do what I did: keep quiet about it, act like it was just a phase, use a VPN for any secretive materials (I recommend Betternet) and then move out as soon as you possibly can! Definitely lean on trusted friends and adults whenever possible and remember: your safety goes above their desire to know your love life.
Betternet is taking a different approach to free VPN's... Free, but has premium service as an option, and you aren't the product with the free version... You can watch a video to support them. Optional ads, free VPN. I always watch a video to help them out because I've been using Betternet for 2 years now and it has never let me down...
Yeah the website I was trying to access is a site that specializes in cowboy trick ropes. Opened up Betternet VPN and it opened fine. I guess Wal-Mart's trying to get the corner market on trick ropes.... even though they don't sell any....
If you still want it, download a Betternet VPN extension on Chrome, enable it and switch to U.S. Refresh the Humble Store page, and you will be able to see MGS: V for $7.99 which is about £6.30. That's what I did and it worked. Keys are temporarily out of stock, by the way!
No it should not. Not sure which VPN you might use but they usually can be toggled on/off - switching your apparent location to another of your choosing when on and switching back when off. The target site should not know the difference. That said, I live overseas and have never used a VPN to access because I don't have to. But when I have used a VPN to access streaming content, (like switching location from my home country to the US to watch US-only content) the latency issue does seem to cause some streaming problems. Maybe some VPNs offer better routing? I just use a free VPN (Betternet) for occasionally accessing blocked sites from where I live. Maybe some of the paid VPNs are better, or they work better in the USA due to connectivity with the spoofed location.
My company blocked access to a few sites a couple months ago.
Some work arounds:
I apologize. I was looking at the other service "Betternet" that was listed on the same page. The point is, all your traffic goes through their server. These streaming devices should only be used for streaming and not a replacement for whole house WiFi.
Turbobeacon is a plug-in device. You just plug it in and go. Again, this can be easily accomplished with a cheap $30 router and a VPN provider that works. And you're not locked into a service. Do they guarantee working Netflix? What if they give up? Do you now have a hardware brick that doesn't work? Can you program that brick to use another VPN? I'm guessing "not."
Do they mention speeds? If you have fast broadband (100 Mbps or higher), will the device perform as well? Do they post speed tests or other performance metrics?
i was using vpn till now but this worked for me, if you have android go to settings then go to google then go to ads and you will see there, reset advertising ID, reset them and it will fix ads, hope this works for you same as worked for me.
btw if this dont work for you then get vpn as i use, his name is Betternet, never let you without ads just let it in optimal location dont change them or just connect it then start game watch videos close game and dissconect, thenback in game have fun thats it.
For Everyone here, since im too lazy to answer to all of you each :D
There are two solutions right now to solve the Connection Issue:
Either 1. Use Mobile Data 4G
Or 2. Use a VPN Proxy Application (like Betternet on the Playstore).
EDIT: Stupid typos
What about Zenmate? It was pretty popular in Turkey when government banned social media websites such as Twitter. Most of us still use Zenmate. Does Betternet VPN have any advantages over Zenmate or it is just a matter of personal taste?
Interestingly, it appears Hola has been removed from the Chrome Web Store search. You can still find it with the direct link, but there must have been a mass exodus and there are only 360,000 users. Looks like it may indeed be a sinking ship even if all of this was a bit of an overreaction. Another alternative as well as Zen and Betternet is CyberGhost. CyberGhost and Betternet have very limited permissions you need to grant, so they should certainly be a lot less intrusive than Hola.
Really the best is to use a desktop VPN rather than an extension VPN because flash and other programs can still determine your real IP address using most VPN extensions.
Como solución provisoria, y si es que te morís de ganas de entrar a 9gag, te podría recomendar que bajes Betternet. - Es una vpn gratis que no tenes que configurar. Un solo click y ya está. Es un toque lento por que es Yankee, pero bueno, safa bastante. Ya la uso para jugar al Hearthstone cunado Fibergarch no connecta
Look, if the quiz uses proctortrak you can’t google questions. If it doesn’t, you can, but if you’re that paranoid just download the Betternet extension and VPN yourself to South America or something
I used the site for several days with great success. However, approximately 72 hours ago, it stopped working. I have tried using various proxies (Zenmate, Betternet VPN, Hola) and have tried forwarding my traffic from various countries, but simply does not work anymore. I can load the page and conduct a search query, but when I try to actually download a book, it times out. Please help.
Thanks for the heads up! And welcome to the club. If you're sure that Betternet VPN extension is doing that, click the report button and let Google know about it.
I'd also contact Google on their forums and let them know that extensions are acting maliciously and something should be done about it. This is a widespread problem. Currently, Google does not check extensions for malicious behavior before publishing them on the store.
You have zero reason to or a need to trust me. Trust should be based on provable facts.
Fact 1: A VPN is a single point and can log all traffic that goes through it's servers and associate it to your account. No single Tor node has access to all information. Some only see you connected to Tor, others only pass info to other nodes, while others only see a connection to let's say YouTube but not from whom - and the best part is these nodes are all controlled by different individuals. See: and for more information on this.
Fact 2: This time it's really more of a question. But how is Betternet making money? The Tor Project is run by volunteers and funded by donation. What's funding Betternet?
What websites say Betternet is good? I found horrible reviews on Google.
I've been switching between Torguard, Private Internet Access and the Betternet extension for Chrome, since at least one seems to be blocked by Netflix at any given time. It's really a game of cat and mouse, but it works.
Chrome offers Betternet free VPN. I'm gonna try it for a while and I will let you know how it is. I tried ZenMate yesterday and my internet slowed down to a snails pace. FreeMyBrowser has really good reviews
I'd like to chime in here with my experience on all this. I've had no luck getting into the game all day until recently. I tried Super VPN, and that didn't work, neither did Tunnelbear. There was a third one I tried which I don't recall the name of right now, but Betternet DID work and the download proceeded as normal. So perhaps some VPN's work better with certain devices than others, however that works. Using an Acer Iconia One 7, if that's of any consequence
I've used this one before but it stopped working after an update, haven't checked again if it works.
Now I use TunnelBear, you get 500mb for free. You also get 1gb if you tweet about it. I never use more than that so it's enough for me. It's the most reliable of all and if you're willing to pay you'll be very satisfied.
Edit: I've heard Hola and Betternet are good too but haven't tried them myself
Well obviously the best VPNs require you to pay for them. I've heard NordVPN was good, but I haven't tried it. I decided to take the risk and use a free VPN, called Betternet, which is a chrome extension. It did its job well and then I uninstalled it.
The most important thing I hold against Windscribe is that its free version has a limitation on bandwidth. While 10 GB is a lot more than what most services offer without opening your wallet, it's a restriction nonetheless. Out of about twenty different VPN services I've used, only three of them provided unlimited data usage with their free products – Betternet, CyberGhost and ProtonVPN, where the former two had their own shortcomings compared to the latter.
You already mentioned it, but being based in a Five Eyes country is a serious knock against Windscribe as well. Add to that the fact that the software lacks the level of security ProtonVPN can offer with SC, and you have yourself some major drawbacks – again, compared to ProtonVPN, not compared to the rest of the industry.
Probably just a blocker or something that your school has on the WiFi so you can't access some stuff. Pretty much every school has it. Try using a VPN while connected. You could download a app called "Betternet" and connect to the wifi, and then just enable that app
There are apps to help you set up a VPN. I’ve used Betternet in China before.
As far as I know, the game should not be logging you out without your permission... Even if you close the app, (from my understanding) the next time you open it, you wouldn’t be logging in again. You would just directly connect to the DPro servers. Facebook login is just used to link the data to you in case you lose your phone/want multiple accounts/etc.
Yup. If you're watching exclusively on a browser (Chrome, specifically), I recommend installing the Betternet VPN extension. It's free, and would save you at least a couple of bucks verse buying a premium VPN service. Binging Kurosawa tonight because of it.
(P.S.: I live in the Philippines and it works amazing.)
Most likely porn.
They don't seem to understand though that most web-filters can be easily gotten around. Personally, I get around my parent's one using a VPN, before that, I'd literally just take their phone and whitelist stuff.
However, I don't ever get around the filter to plan like secret crap or whatever or watch porn, I mostly get around it cause I'm a web-developer and MyCircle's filter just absolutely LOVES to block my websites. It also at one point blocked my own youtube channel saying it was unsafe.
If I were you, I'd try a VPN. It hides whatever you're doing from the filter as just encrypted garbage so it can't block it. Try Betternet.
Yes, likely. With large lists of proxies being difficult to block, it would be a nigh-impossible task to stop users from using proxies/VPNs. I personally would recommend Epic Privacy Browser (which has a built-in VPN option) to bypass restrictions, and TunnelBear or Betternet if a non-website program or service is blocked.
Could this maybe have something to do with students installing a VPN such as Betternet to bypass a web filter? I do not work with Casper, but I know our MDM didn't like it very much when we blocked Snapchat from the network and all the students installed a vpn to get around that.
I wouldn't recommend using free VPNs, you never know what data they collect about you and who they sell it to, plus why they are free we have no idea. They will claim reasons why it's free but we can't be sure. Also if you use a free VPN for torrenting such as Betternet or other free VPN, if providers get a DMCA complaint they won't hesitate to point that fine in your direction or hand your information to the police which most paid subscriptions can't do as they don't keep logs (such a PIA, pureVPN, AirVPN, Torguard etc).
It depends on the VPN you use. Most of the free ones tend to be slow. There are some good cheap options though(1-2 dollars a month). I’ll update this comment when I find some.
For free VPN’s, hotspot shield doesn’t seem to slow down although they’ve been caught for selling user data and cap your monthly usage. Betternet on the other hand doesn’t have a cap, but can be painfully slow sometimes.
FYI, any free VPN (or any free service really) costs lots of money to use and maintain. If you are not the customer, you are the product. Betternet is free, but they also most likely sell your user details to advertisers.
The government has been cracking down on VPNs lately in China, so all the free VPNs you find in the App Store (e.g. Betternet) aren't going to work. (On a side note, I heard they use machine learning to find these VPNs). One of the most common working VPNs left popular with expats is ExpressVPN which does cost money but is worth it. Even some paid services like VyprVPN have been spotty lately.
Source: Just left China two days ago.
Edit: It would be prudent to download ExpressVPN ahead of time, but even if you forget, you can use their alternate Firewall-friendly website, (I think it's that)
Right so, I have been trying to find VPNs that work today the only ones i know of that work are, betternet and express VPN (express VPN you need to pay for)
Betternet VPN is free and availible on any platform.
It's a known issue for some time, and Com2Us has mentioned they're looking into it but have offered no timeline on when it'd be resolved.
In the mean time, VPN is a proven workaround - Betternet or HotspotVPN on iOS has both worked for me. It's not an ideal fix as it kind of messes with my in game chat (frequent dc from chats), and people have mentioned there being security risks with VPN - but it does work.
Please understand every movie app you have with certain permissions has the same ability to do what you're worried about. There's been no known occurrences of miners or data sold from the app. If you're genuinely worried about things like that stay away from UC browser Betternet etc pretty much any FREE vpn
There’s one called Betternet and VPN 360, both are free and currently works, they are pretty fast(idk the actual speed but I can stream youtube with decent quality so netflix should be also fine) I suggest that you download both so you always have an alternative when one doesn’t work
and btw they are only for phones I think
Aplicativo Betternet. Qualquer aplicativo de VPN vai funcionar, no caso. O Tor também (tem uma funcionalidade experimental pra usar com a VPN do android caso você não tenha root), se você não quiser estar usando um serviço centralizado. Android é top porque tem suporte a esse tipo de coisa nativamente (se liga na chavinha no topo da tela).
Would you guys even say torrenting without a VPN might even be better than with a free VPN?
I recently bumped ibto Betternet and it didn't look all that bad. (I am fairly new to torrenting on a higher level)
When you don't use a VPN, your router connects directly to any site you visit so the path and end destination can be tracked and stored.
When you use a VPN, the end destination your ISP sees will always be the VPN server, the VPN server then handles passing data too and from websites for you.
As for recommendations, I'm sure some people can give good paid VPN's, personally I've always found Betternet unlimited free VPN add-on for chrome to do the job. Some times I'll get buffering on videos, but for rare use and general internet browsing it's fine.
You don't need to pay for a proxy . Download Betternet VPN , its free in the App Store .
Turn it on . Sign up through , and just pay via pay pal monthly . It takes it out monthly without me doing anything .
Then you can use it anywhere , including Xbox , PS4 where ever you can download the wwe app you'll have it .

If either of those links does not work for you, please consider using a VPN such as those available through the Betternet extension.
Try a VPN if possible, your school seems to be blocking the site's login stuff. You might be able to get a VPN extension for the browser on your school computer, and if not, Betternet is a free VPN software that you can download from home, put on a USB drive that you later plug into your computer at school, and then use on your school computer (there's a "connect" button on the app to turn it on). If Roblox's login stuff is still blocked, play Finobe or RBXLegacy. Yeah, they're old roblox, but they're roblox at least.
As a rule of thumb, any free VPN/Proxy is bad (If you aren't paying for the product, you ARE the product). I'd have to recommend betternet because of its stability, its free, and it claims not to log (obviously you should take that with a grain of salt). Personally I use privateinternetaccess because its like 3 bucks a month, but I don't know if thats an option for ya.
TL:DR: If you can spare a couple bucks a month, get this
It looks like your speeds are fine using different servers will yield different results because of many factors. Try VPNing like I mentioned. A free one is called Betternet it looks like something to do with CSS for websites since the content is there just not formatted. Might be interesting to try another browser unless you're using chrome then maybe a reinstall? Or remove some plugins you're using.
The last thing I'd try is another computer to see if the problem is persistent.
I roll my own. For my phone I have an L2TP/IPSec tunnel to my home network (school wifi blocks PPTP and L2TP wasn't that much harder to set up) with Betternet as a backup. For the school laptop (we have 1:1 MacBook Pros), I have a "rewebber" type proxy running on a Raspberry Pi at my house (this works for basic stuff, but it's bad with AJAX and anything that requires a login) as well as an SSH tunnel running over GNU httptunnel for everything else (my school blocks direct SSH connections). So it's encrypted etc just like a VPN but not technically a VPN. I can't just use the VPN on the school laptop because you need admin rights to set that up and while I could get those (privilege escalation bug), I don't want the school knowing about it.
