At a time when more and more online services and social networks are blocked every day, a VPN is becoming a necessity. It allows you to go to Instagram, visit banned sites and not worry about YouTube being unavailable one day. Unfortunately, access to VPN services is also covered and not everyone will be able to pay due to card issues. In this compilation, we’ve collected VPNs that still work!
Remark The information is current as of March 18. VPN services are regularly blocked, but we will monitor the situation and update the collection.
Hide my name. Free period
Hide.My.name VPN service has a 24-hour free trial. Enter your email on the site and receive a code that will allow you to surf the net without restrictions.
If the quality of the service suits you, you can proceed to payment. Prices are reasonable: a month costs 670 rubles, and services for a year cost 270 rubles per month. You can pay with QIWI, bitcoins, Yandex.Money or cryptocurrency.
surf shark. Reasonable price and warranty
It’s worth noting that it’s nearly impossible to find a free VPN service that offers high speed and doesn’t throttle traffic. If you plan to visit Instagram, Facebook and other blocked sites regularly, you should look into paid options.
Surfshark is one of the most trusted VPNs on the market. It has no restrictions on the number of connected devices, sufficient speed, 1700 servers and 64 countries to choose from. In addition, the rate also offers a 30-day guarantee: if the quality does not suit you, you will get your money back.
Surfshark’s prices are reasonable. If you pay for 30 days, you will have to pay 1300 rubles, but if you choose a rate for a year, the price drops to 400 rubles per month. You can pay for the service using WebMoney, Unionpay compatible cards, or bitcoins.
North VPN. Ten years of work
NordVPN has been on the market for ten years. In 2012, the service had only six servers and users had to configure the VPN themselves. Over the years, the number of servers has grown to 5300 and the system independently selects the most suitable countries and protocols.
Importantly, NordVPN supports features that automatically protect against malware and ads. Reviews from big name influencers like PewDiePie are also impressive. The two-year plan costs $3.49 per month. You can pay for services with bitcoins and with a Unionpay card.
Tap VPN. Free but with limitations
Touch VPN is ideal for those who do not need regularity. The free rate is good: when you connect to the optimal server, the speed is practically not cut, it is convenient to use the service, and no one even asks to register. The problem is that only 500MB of traffic is available every day. This is enough to surf the net, but you should not count on much.
If you want to take full advantage of Touch VPN, be prepared to pay $6.5 per month. This allows you to choose a location, connect up to five devices, increase the speed, and so on.
Do you use a VPN?
ProtonVPN. Free but with reduced speed
The free version of ProtonVPN doesn’t limit the amount of traffic – use it as much as you want. But the speed is reduced about twice. If your connection speed reaches 100 Mbps without VPN, you will not get more than 50 Mbps with ProtonVPN. However, this is an excellent indicator as they do not charge any money for use.
If such restrictions are not for you, but you want to choose between 63 countries and not three, try switching to a paid version. Prices start from $4, and you can pay for services with cryptocurrency.
ZenMate. There is a free option for low speed
ZenMate is one of the most popular VPN services. It offers many servers in 80 countries, reasonable prices starting at $2.22 per month, and a seven-day free trial. To get a trial version, all you need to do is register on the site. At the same time, no one forbids repeating the operation if there was not enough time to verify the quality of the service.
However, if you rarely need a VPN and don’t plan on taking advantage of streaming benefits, you can install the free ZenMate browser extension. True, you should not count on high speed – it will not exceed 16 Mbps.
Cyber Ghost. #1 VPN provider from Forbes
CyberGhost is regularly voted the best VPN service by Forbes, CNN, BBC and many other reputable sources. The secret is in 6000 servers, 91 available countries and a fast connection speed. In addition, while competitors offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, CyberGhost has extended the period to 45 days.
You can protect up to seven devices for a price of $1.84 – this is the price when you pay for three years of use at once. You can make a transaction with bitcoins or with the balance of a phone that supports Google Pay.
Hello VPN. There is a free option, but with a nuance
Hola has a standard VPN service that offers typical benefits such as a 30-day warranty and high speed. It costs from $2.99 per month. However, the free version is much more interesting.
Hola also lets you install a free browser that supports thousands of servers and millions of IP addresses. The trick is that users themselves specify their IP to share. For some this isn’t a problem, but many will be confused by the fact that someone is sitting from your IP and doing something on the network.
ExpressVPN. Blocked but not broken
The thing about ExpressVPN is that it was officially blocked a year ago. In reality, however, it continues to work, as before.
Like other services, ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee: if you’re not happy with the speed and quality of the service during this time, you’ll get your money back on request. Depending on the plan chosen, VPN costs $6.67 per month.
The service’s main advantage is its speed, which is only slightly below that of your provider. If you use a rate of 100 mb/s, the speed can go up to 90 mb/s – the important thing is to choose the most suitable one from 94 available countries.
There are many ways to pay for ExpressVPN, including bitcoin or WebMoney. The most convenient option is QIWI.
Avira Phantom VPN. Free, no device limit, but low traffic
Avira Phantom VPN limits the amount of traffic available each day to 500 megabytes and no more. But the service is suitable for people who use VPN infrequently, but like to juggle devices. All thanks to the lack of restrictions: connect a phone, a few laptops and other equipment to your account and check Instagram for health.
To make the traffic unrestricted, you have to swerve. A month costs 416 rubles, and annual use – 3118 rubles.
