Keeping your online activity and data private may be a big thing to you, and perhaps with good reason. You don’t need to be doing something illegal to want to hide it online these days, and with companies seemingly determined to track our every move online, keeping as much data encrypted as possible is one way to keep control.
VPNs are great ways to stop outsiders from observing an internet connection and what it is being used for as VPNs fully encrypts the internet traffic from your device.
The good news is that if you are a Google Chrome user, there are ways and means of getting VPN coverage for free and with no usage limitations, right from within Chrome web browser. The process is surprisingly simple as well, because it just needs a few clicks and that’s it, you’re all done.
It consists of just one step really, and that involves installing Betternet’s Chrome extension or any other similar service’s extension. Things couldn’t really be any easier.
You may be wondering how Betternet can offer a free, unlimited VPN service, but it turns out it’s all above board. Betternet offers a premium service alongside its free offering and makes money from its mobile apps too. In fact, Betternet only needs to earn enough money to cover its costs, so the company isn’t chasing profits. That alone is great news and should mean that Betternet will be around for quite a while yet.
If you have even the smallest worry about keeping your internet traffic safe from prying eyes, or if you want to access a US or UK-only service such as Hulu or BBC iPlayer from outside US or UK, the Betternet Chrome extension would be a good place to start.
You can download the said extension to Chrome either directly from the Chrome Web Store, or from betternet.co.
