VPN or Virtual Private Network is one of the more secure ways to browse the internet when accessing through a public wireless network. A user can become more susceptible to hacking and get their information stolen.

Having a VPN is a great asset for internet users, but setting one up can be a complicated process. This is where you have VPN apps, which provides an automatic set up of a VPN to access the Internet.

Here’s a list of VPN apps we’ve compiled that are free and easy to use for users looking to access websites that aren’t available in their region.
