"FREE" VPN for Android

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a VPN for my mobile in Thailand (excluding free 30 day offers). Many are not free and most don't work in Asia.

It says the free service speed is slow. I used it briefly in the US when my usual VPN ran out and I hadn't renewed. I don't remember thinking it was unusable speedwise.

 

Get their free email while you're at it: protonmail.com

 

Both services are secure/encrypted/highly regarded privacy protection company.

 

I'm surprised that you say most VPN's don't work in Asia.

Although the speed and ping may not be what you're looking for - I forget what the 3 countries are that they use for the free service.

I read about this one. It stated only 3 countries covered but no information about which ones.

Im obviously chasing a free VPN that works in Thailand (and the Philippines). All the free ones do mostly Europe but not Asia.

Is it essential that your VPN show a Thailand address? Or a specific region?

 

If not, it shouldn't matter. You'll be somewhat slower, depending on where and other factors.

A VPN should work everywhere. They are not region specific.

 

It should only affect speed.

VPN is a VPN why do you think there is a difference between Europe and Asia?  Which would work in Istanbul?

Every VPN free or paid works in Thailand.

 

The countries supported are obviously the vpn servers you can connect to, not the countries where it will work

I used my pay VPN in Thailand. They had no server in Thailand.

 

Email Proton and ask. I'd be very surprised if they don't say it will work everywhere (or should).

 

The free offers IP addresses from only 3 countries, not that it only works in 3 countries.

 

Have you tried all of these free ones you say don't work in Thailand?

 

If so, they are either garbage products or you are doing something wrong.

 

Proton is the only trustworthy one I know of.

All the free VPNs list the countries they have servers in. None showed Thailand. Perhaps I must pay. Any free ones in Thailand?

Read about a VPN and what it is.

 

You are not understanding the basics.

 

Janclaes47 and I have explained, but you are not paying attention.

 

I'm giving up.

Im trying to understand. I just assumed if a VPN lists 30 countries but excluded most of Asia that it must mean something. Otherwise why list so many countries. You say server location is irrelevant. Okay then I can use anyone.
