1VPN Free Trial
1VPN comes in a trial version that you can download for free. The full version provides you with excellent protection. The features are mostly conveniences, but, because of those conveniences, you’ll be more likely to use your VPN service on your mobile device and that means very real benefits. The VPN service, of course, allows you to surf the Internet in anonymity, which is important enough as it is. On a mobile device, however, there are other significant advantages that you should be aware of.
Most coffee shops and bookstores have wireless connections available that you can hook up to for no charge. These are great for when you want to relax a bit at the establishment, but they’re also very risky as far as security is concerned. To avoid ending up in a bad situation, you can use a VPN that will encrypt your traffic and prevent people from being able to spy on what you’re sending and receiving online.
This encryption feature can prevent you from being hacked by other people at the coffee shop who may be monitoring traffic on devices such as packet sniffers and other tools that allow them to see what you’re looking at and, potentially, to intercept passwords and other credentials in transit.
The 1VPN service currently supports all of the built in VPN protocols which are for Android : PPTP and L2TP with all of its permutations.
Unfortunately OpenVPN is not supported but in our testing L2TP did a great job with our test provider IPVanish.
