Speedify has one main aim as a VPN provider: to ensure that while you benefit from encryption, your internet connection remains as speedy as possible.
Want a secure, yet speedy free VPN connection? Then look no further.
To that end, Speedify makes use of all available connections to get the best performance, potentially combining Ethern et, say, with a tethered mobile connection. Even if you only have one type of connection, the firm claims its turbocharging technology will still help speed things up.
As well as the promise of better performance, Speedify operates a clear no logging policy, so it won’t monitor your traffic. Plus, it offers access to over 30 VPN servers.
The free plan boasts full access to those servers, with the only restriction being the amount of data you can download. Free users get 4GB of data in the first month, but that drops to 1GB after. That’s not a massive amount, but it’s still enough for basic surfing.
