Using a VPN can be a reliable and safe way to secure your annonimity online. Some are free and some are paid, I'll be using a free one, which I consider to be the best given for free. Information is not collected on the user, and there is a unlimited download/upload so you can download anything at your hearts content. You can even watch american or English TV on demand (such as iPlayer or ABC) if connected to the relevant server. Another important point is there is no restrictions on what country you connect to as there is with some free and paid providers, and a download cap so in my opinion this is one of the best available. We will be using OPENVPN

OPENVPN can be downloaded here : https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html

Install it as normal it may need confirmation of installing a virtual TAP to bridge Ethernet connections this is normal

Next go to: http://www.vpngate.net/en/

To look at the servers available. If your wanting to watch some English or American TV select the appropriate one. Its best to connect to UDP rather than TCP for downloading, find one with a high speed connection then download the relevant .opvn file

Next we need to place the file within the config folder of the OPENVPN program such as :
C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config

Run the OPENVPN program as a administrator and check the task bar. Right click it and find the .opvn file and click connect, it should turn green. You should now be connected, go to google and see what your IP adress is, it should be in the country of the server you selected. This is a great way of protecting yourself or your downloads online


Have fun and stay safe !

@wikileaks_forum No. Free VPN's are a quick way to get your data handed over to alphabet boys. Spend some bitcoins, use a pay service.

@Anon_Templar   - Id certainly love to see your evidence or facts regarding this issue, care to discuss ? The program I specified does not keep logs as its not a 'business' .when selecting the server your joining, they are all over the world with different/lax laws in some countries so they wouldn't collaborate with the 'alphabet boys' and as I've said on the post , yes paid ones would more than likely come out trumps, but again my post says for free and I've chosen the best one to give to people who don't know how to use or set one up. Stigma comes with 'Free VPN' I know but have YOU done your research into that particular program? because if you haven't you really don't have a right to criticise my whole topic with only one sentence.

Right so you've researched that much care to explain how you use that data precisely, and exactly how you went about it ? As I've said now for the third time (I wont be repeating this again make sure you at least read my posts before I dignify you with a response) .................> On that particular set up as outlined above THERE ISN'T ANY LOGS KEPT. <.........  Most paid ones in fact DO keep logs as they are a fully fledged business, and some are required to keep certain logs,  and just because they claim they don't keep logs does not mean they are being truthful, So from a learning perspective, how exactly did you do your research ? The one outlined above is the best free one out there, and its kept me safe for many years so for people sending mail or visiting certain sites, or for watching TV in another country, its more than proficient in helping them, wouldnt you agree ?

Make sure to use a vpn service that is really secure, or even use multiple vpns, cause anyone can go to the company and ask for the logs and provide your ip address, do not use the free ones cause they dont really hide you. You should constantly change locations..etc from city to city. Much safer

Yo Zuse,
WHOA is just 16, don´t scare him away! ;)

BTW, I know that if you use such VPN stuff some Agencys love to cover up your trail because of you use it.

anyway it´s a good information for people wanna go a bit more into the dark, but be aware of those a sniffing around your trace ;)

I wouldn't use more than one, just in case there is an error and the VPN set up does not work at all, if you want to try it Id love to hear the results, but its not something I could endorse on here as it opens more security risks, and then your browsing history recorded with a company, id say it'll be best to use one good one, though its important to keep changing locations/servers etc

Some vpn's especially the free ones are not good to use. They will easily hand over your data to anyone.

hm. 
if you do illegal stuff your data maybe has to be handover?

I am more concerned about people living in countrys like iran, china, where freedom of speech is still a reason to kill you. I hope those find their way here :)

anonymousforumuser - please for the love of god read the post and comments before writing back stuff which has already been covered - your about literally the 7th person to do this and im not repeating myself any more. If you cant be bothered to read a whole post, well that's your prerogative but don't get butthurt if people dont take you seriously, since you've basically copied some one else's comment on this post, everything you've said albeit a sentence has already been covered or proven to be beneficial such as the post where it says " there isnt any logs kept" Yes a lot of free ones DO INFACT keep logs, but i've personally checked this one out pretty thoroughly, so unless you have some shiny new evidence, do some research. I much prefer people to ask questions such as - 'how do you know' - My god it infuriates me, people who just comment about things after reading a title instead of the article, in which your comment has already been covered.

Just purely for those disbelievers out there, the anonymous hacktivist group use OpenVPN and they themselves endorse the program, so its perfectly safe to use, even for a little more insidious web browsing, though I must point out the obvious not to use it purely for illegal purposes
