Hello and Welcome to The Techno Drift. In this article, we will tell you all that you need to know about Best Free VPN Apps for Android, iOS, Windows, etc and some apps which do not require any registration.
Best Free VPN app or apk for Android, iOS (iPhone), Windows 10 (PC), Chrome, Top/Best Free VPN Apps
TunnelBear is a great free VPN service with some catch in it. The service can be used on up to five devices but there’s a data limit of 500MB per month which can be extended to 1GB by doing additional tasks such as tweeting about the company or inviting friends. The best thing about this software is its ease of use and the animations. There is a very cute animation of a bear digging tunnel from your present location up to the country you are trying to connect. One of the privacy policies we have checked out on a VPN. Also a great service for Bit Torrenting.
Pros- Pleasing interface, Good download speeds, Kill switch, Browser extension, Works with Netflix
Cons- Supports a few locations, Cannot select protocol.
Platform- Windows, Mac, iOS, iPad, Android, Chrome, Opera, and Firefox extension.
Proton VPN ( Best free unlimited VPN for android) (Free VPN for Netflix) ( Best free VPN for Gaming like PUBG)
Proton VPN comes from the same company that had created World’s largest completely end to end encrypted email service with servers residing in secure former military bases. Headquartered in Switzerland which has some of the world’s strongest privacy laws and is not a member of the fourteen eyes surveillance network. ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service and does not track or record your internet activity. ProtonVPN also integrates with the Tor anonymity network. Unlike other free VPNs, there are no catches which means no ads, no data limit and that forced us to choose it as the Editor’s Choice Best Free VPN service.
Pros- No ads, No data bandwidth, Use unlimited data

Hide.me VPN ( Best free VPN for torrenting like BitTorrent)
Hide.me is another free VPN app that does not store logs, has good privacy features and servers from over 60 locations.

Windscribe is a relatively new VPN service with a high data cap of up to 10GB per month unlike TunnerBear’s 500MB per month. Plus additional task completions will give additional 5GB. The choice of servers is also good considering there is a choice of 10 servers including the UK, Hong Kong, Canada, and the US. Same as other VPNs they claim to not store logs, IP or visited sites. Choosing a paid plan gives access to 60+ servers and also there is an inbuilt adblocker and firewall to tempt you.

This VPN is somewhat like a free extension of its much popular web browser. It offers unlimited data at high speeds. Privacy protection must not be kept in mind but the company claims that the data in the browser is protected. There are only 3 servers to choose from i.e the US, Europe, and Asia.

Ookla Speedtest VPN
Ookla the company behind its much popular speedtest.net has launched a free VPN service that is currently in beta stage. It also has 2GB of bandwidth every month.
