good to know! updated the description
Surprised this hasn't been posted before, I've been using it for sometime now. It's also available for Windows, Chrome, Firefox, and (soon) Mac.

can anyone recommend a good sms encryption app for iphone that doesn't require the other person to have the same app?
How would they receive the decrypted sms?
Can you watch other countries versions of Netflix with this?

its a fair question, but i'm trying to find a way around getting all my contacts to install the same app, eg signal, just to use encryption on texts.
Why would you use this. I'm not very tech savy.

I wondered that, just used it and see that ip changes to somewhere else which is good to avoid being located but there's probably a proper use thats over my head!

generally, vpns are used to either access content from another country (eg, US netflix in the UK), or to encrypt your web browsing so its harder for anyone trying to see where you're browsing, to do so. Basically, the most important thing you need to know about a VPN: It secures your device's internet connection to guarantee that all of the data you're sending and receiving is encrypted and secured from prying eyes.

Direct quote from the app:
"How does Betternet make money? By offering free sponsored apps. There's an "install an app" button inside our mobile app. When you click on this you are offered other apps for installation. For each app installed, Betternet earns money from the app publishers."

​sly one like hola? what's that?

I'm concerned there will monitor / capture everything you do because all your traffic will go through them....

Have a google anyone who values their security stopped using it
This is how they make money:

Any ideas on if they log traffic?
I use hola purely for Netflix but I'd like to try something different. Has anyone used this for streaming? Are the connections quick enough or is it throttled?

Surely that would defeat the wholewhole purpose of using a VPN, or am I missing something?
This is brilliant unlike like others out there
There is video ad to watch when you connect

Using hola? Might want to read this: pcworld.com/art…tml
lol as if one ad inside an app would cover the cost of setting up and maintaining high bandwidth data centres around the world. Most likely retaining and selling your data, or doing the same as Hola.
great find for your android browser i would highly recommend fire.onion. It is a working tor based browser

Many of the companies who stream are starting to block VPN's the BBC certainly are actively trying to do so. theregister.co.uk/201…er/

Remember anything you can get so can an analyst in the BBC , and they watch the traffic and block it on the iPlayer servers, so any mainstream VPN can be easily tracked and blocked.
How do I use it on Android? When I try to connect to any country it shows me the Go Premium message. If I just connect to it without selecting a country it connects fine but my location remains as UK

same here.. and even though this post says free, there is still a premium option for around £3+ /month so I dont get this post.

Not for match longer. Netflix has just started blocking VPNs.

Whoops - I tried adding the website link to the description but the submit button wasn't working. Naturally, I clicked it multiple times out of frustration and now it's also been submitted multiple times oO
If services like this are for free, then the user is the product through which they are making the money. Gotta be careful with VPNs. Someone is monitoring the traffic.
Right now I am using the ZenMate VPN (free for 1 days), anyone know from experience which is better?

For the next few weeks, but Netflix are stopping this. Defies logic really as they'll lose a load of subscriptions
This works really well if you are using Kodi too.
