Psiphon is a decent, though not perfect, choice for a free VPN. It styles itself as a “circumvention tool”, though you can also use it like a standard VPN. The idea is that it takes your Internet connection ‘beyond borders’, setting up a secure, encrypted VPN link to websites and services that might normally be blocked by your region, employer or internet supplier.
However, it can also be used to give you a more secure connection when you’re browsing the Internet through a public WiFi network. It’s not as feature-rich as a proper VPN service, and doesn’t guarantee the same degree of privacy protection, but Psiphon still has much to recommend it.
Best of all, it’s absolutely free.
