Do you know what a VPN is? As its name says (Virtual Private Network), this is a way to connect two points using the infrastructure of a public network, in our case the internet itself. This is a very superficial explanation, but the advantage here is that you can access content from other countries, through your smartphone, tablet or computer. Let’s know the best Android VPN apps.
1. Opera VPN
Opera VPN is the service of the kind that you will like the most, mainly for not counting on invasive publicity, as is the case of the majority. It is easy to use and has a nice interface, as well as two very interesting functions. The first is the ability to test connection security, and the second is the "Guardian" feature, which prevents content with advertising from crawling the user. A great download option!
SuperVPN Free is another good application, which just like Psiphon, does not need any registration to use. It is also very fast and simple to use. No configuration is required with it.
3. Flash VPN
It is another app extremely simple to use. There is a button to turn on and requires no configuration and you can choose between Japan, England, or North American servers. It's entirely free. The app's functions are quite limited and there are a large number of ads.
4. Hello VPN
Hola VPN is a bit more complete, with more functions. The difference is that it is necessary to register in the application first. In Hola you have the possibility to choose which applications use the VPN network. It is most often used in streaming applications, such as accessing American Netflix. Also that it consumes a bit more RAM than the ones suggested above, so use it carefully or your battery will complain.
5. TunnelBear VPN
It has two differences; the first is that it is only free for 7 days. The second is that it is necessary to make a registration also to use it. It is worth remembering that it takes a lot to connect in 3G / 4G networks. But in WiFi networks it connects fast and then does not fall at all.
The technology behind this type of connection is called "tunneling", as it creates a "tunnel" by establishing communication between two points, through which data circulates. The VPN itself does not store any kind of data; it is saved on servers or clients that configure the VPN.
One of the key uses of VPN technology is to encapsulate a private IP of a corporate or enterprise network within a public Internet IP, so that employees who work from home can connect to the office network accessing the services, resources, servers, etc.
