Hide My Ass VPN Review
Sometimes you want, or even need, to be able to browse the internet anonymously and securely from anywhere in the world – and that’s exactly what the Hide My Ass VPN allows you to do. I’ve searched for, and used, many VPNs over the years and Hide My Ass is one of the best I’ve come across, here’s my review of this great app which everyone who is worried about internet security and anonymity should be using.
Before I start, perhaps I should explain what exactly a VPN is. A VPN is a virtual private network that allows you to use the internet through an encrypted connection. This allows you to browse the interest securely, anonymously and from anywhere in the world.
There are many reason that you may want to use a VPN like Hide My Ass. Perhaps you’re overseas but still want to be able to watch your favourite TV programmes from back home? Or maybe you just need to use the internet in an untraceable and secure way? Perhaps you live in, or are going to visit, a country with restricted internet access?
Maybe you’re like me and your job requires you to use programmes where you want to remain hidden or use software that targets many locations such as SEO Traffic Bot Generator? In fact, in many cases these tools require you to use Hide My Ass VPN.
Or it could even be that you’re worried about Government Surveillance? And if you’re not maybe you should be? Did you know that many governments not only track your online browsing data, quite often they sell it to advertisers. Ever wonder why you keep getting so many pesky ads, that’s why. The UK have recently passed a law that means our internet service providers can keep track of every website we visit for up to a year and gives them permission to track and hack any of our devices. You don’t need to be hiding something for that to be a problem!
Whatever your reasons for wanting some extra security and anonymity, you’re going to need some VPN software.
There are many reasons why I’ve found Hide My Ass to be the best VPN for me. To start off with they have over 11 years’ experience as a company and they’re also part of the Avast family which is one of the biggest security companies in the world, so you can feel safe that they have experience and can protect you.
The set up is also incredibly simple, just download the software and you’re easily led through a simple set up. What I also really like is that just one license will allow you to have up to five connections running at the same time- which is a real bonus that you don’t get with many other VPNs.
With some VPNs you find that your internet connection, or ability to browse the web at speed, will slow right down. This isn’t the case with the Hide My Ass VPN and that’s because they have one of the largest networks with over 760 servers in over 190 countries.
It’s compatible with Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS and Android, they have a great customer service team and there are no restrictions on your uploads or downloads! All winning ticks from me.
Another thing that I really like about Hide My Ass is their three mode connections, which makes it really simple to use the app in the way that you want.
Instant Mode – This mode lets you simply connect to the internet quickly and easily so that your connection is secure. You may want to use this mode when you’re on a public WI-FI- which I often use if I’m working from a café.
Location Mode - This is the mode you should use if you want to appear like you’re in a different country to your current location. If you’re like me and you travel a lot then this mode is invaluable. Want to watch your favourite TV programme but can’t access from your current location? No problem, just turn on location mode!
Freedom Mode – This mode is perfect if you happen to be in a country that has restricted internet access, which can be so frustrating! Especially if you’re not used to any restrictions. The freedom mode will just find a location where sites aren’t blocked and away you go!
All in all there’s really nothing that I can fault with Hide My Ass VPN. However, there is a 30 day money back guarantee if there’s anything that doesn’t work for you. I also find it’s one of the better value VPNs on the market with a monthly subscription, and there’s currently (Feb18) a winter sale on giving you 50% off- win win!
So, if you’re looking for a VPN which is reliable, fast, easy to use, that you can access on all of your devices, is safe and secure and won’t break the bank then I would definitely recommend Hide My Ass.
