Your-Freedom VPN Review
Your-Freedom is a service that seems to be popular among those looking for a free solution for a VPN. The free service has some very severe limitations, however, and that may put some users off. Where these companies compete is on their paid services and, where those services are concerned, Your-Freedom may not offer everything that advanced users are accustomed to.

Your-Freedom vs. The Competition
Compared to other services, Your-Freedom has some very non-competitive elements. The free service is what appears to give users genuine interest in them. When paid services are being discussed however, their bandwidth restrictions and usage restrictions do not make them a service that we’d place on the top of our list.
The proxy service option offers something for those who do not want a full VPN service, though it has all of the limitations of any other proxy in terms of actually protecting user privacy.
Your-Freedom does have its advantages. The flexible payment options are definitely nice and they offer users who cannot use credit cards as a way to pay for this service. Their application is good and it supports all the major operating systems, so they have that to their advantage.
Your-Freedom, however, only offers forum support, which may not be enough for some users, particularly when something major happens with their service. The service is also very restricted where bandwidth is concerned. Where paid services are being discussed, there are better options that offer great pricing for accounts that are not restricted. The lack of support for P2P technologies, including BitTorrent, also makes this provider a bit less desirable than some of the other options that users have available to them. All in all, Your-Freedom is not a bad service, but it’s not at the top of our list for value relative to the money spent.
