And also access to download sites that ISPs are cracking down on.

looks like you need to enter credit card details

Thanks. New knowledge for me.

Can I cancel the credit after set it up ?

Did all of you enter your credit card details?

You should expect Amazon to release any information requested by authorities unlike paid VPN services, but this is nice for standard browsing

What happens after the first year has run out? Normal rates?

Do they keep logs of your activities and will they pass that info to the authorities if asked?

For a quick solution without signing up to anything, I'd recommend "ZenMate" addon for FireFox (or other browsers)
It bypasses all UK restricted sites.

Wow $9.50 a month after a year to send all your data via Amazon, who will no doubt disclose what you've be watching/downloading if requested by the US Government.

Do you really think you are of interest to the US government?

How is it anonymous?

First I very much doubt Amazon will allow access to torrent sites etc thorugh their connections. Plus they most certainly log etc.

You are anonymous to the end point site you are visiting. Nothing more.

The entire planet is of interest to them, you are naive to think otherwise.

If theirs and our own governments well publicised mass surveillance activities are anything to go by then....yes!

would this work to stream NBC Sports for the footy. Anyone tried ?

I can't see any info. on monthly allowances?

2. You can have multiple VPN servers all over the world. You just have to repeat the setup steps in this guide by selecting different regions. Please note that AWS free tier gives you a total of 750 hours a month free. You can also delete and create VPN servers as frequently as you want.

See here aws.amazon.com/free/

there's a limit of 15GB a month outbound traffic on the AWS free tier, which is equivalent to you receiving/streaming 15GB of data to your home, which is perhaps the equivalent of 5 to 8 full length movies.

in my experience, a number of USA video services recognise you're using an AWS address as a proxy or VPN and won't let you watch their service.

Just downloaded ZenMate on my phone. Works like a treat. Easy to set up.

An armed NSA agent has just clambered through a window in the rear of your property whilst a very nice lady from GCHQ, posing as a district surveyor, has rung the front door to distract and engage your wife/husband/partner/dog/ in conversation. They own you.

Needless to say yet another VPN service which will not accommodate the Blackberry Playbook.

You lot get me, yes, this will be part of the mass of data collected by the NSA and god knows who else.

But let me point out two things :

1) unless you encrypt ALL of your traffic, you have no idea what they can and can't see already
2) do you honestly think that out of the petabytes of data they process each day, they're going to be interested in some gimp downloading game of thrones in the UK?

Please, deflate your egos.

Ah! But it is they who paranoiacally conflate our egos.

the biggest advantage of using a US VPN is that the NSA will definitely capture, store and analyse your traffic, while otherwise it's just a maybe

I totally agree. Zenmate works perfectly with Google Chrome for getting past the 'Blocked' notices.
You can pretend to be in the US, Germany, Switzerland, or Hong Kong,

I've been using Zenmate for quite a while now and it works fine and is free. Amazon take the P asking for card details for something that is free. Not sure why they don't just let you have a free account for a year and then give you the option instead of taking your card details in the hope that you forget to cancel it in 12 months time.

It's pretty standard on trials and partly stops people abusing them by getting them again and again as they can log not accept already used card details.

The reason they ask for card details is because they will charge you for what you use over the free tier. With AWS you get a certain amount of compute/network/storage/data transfer free, but go above this, they will charge.

I would recommend setting a trigger/alert within AWS that will notify you if you have an incurred a charge over 25 cents or whatever - that way you can check what has incurred the charge (e.g. if you have spun up a new virtual server by mistake).

Very happy with Smart DNS Proxy. They now throw in a VPN too - £23 for a year: smartdnsproxy.com/Pre…nUp

any vpn provider will release information to authorities with a correct court order. anyone stating you are surfing anonymously is a fool even with a vpn every provider keeps logs even if they say they don't, otherwise how would they cap your download's etc. you also need a nat firewall otherwise the pipe is open to intrusion. you then have to take into account dns leaks and also stuff such as WebRTC leaks. amazon will defo keep logs, for marketing purposes. a vpn is a good technique for online banking etc but as for surfing anonymously only an idiot believes that you can do that.
