Make sure your surfing is safe and anonymous with a VPN solution like UltraVPN.
This virtual private network (VPN) is based on OpenVPN and, like other VPN clients, your network connection so that others can't identify who - or where - you are. Although you have to sign up to use the service, it's free and doesn't require an email address.
Once you have signed up to UltraVPN, you'll get a username and password to log in. That's all you need to do, as the program will automatically connect and assign you a new, anonymous IP address. There are a few configuration options that you can choose to investigate - for instance, you'll be able to set the proxy server to use OpenVPN's settings, Internet Explorer's or manual (HTTP or SOCKS) - but you don't actually have to make any changes to use UltraVPN.
Once you are connected to UltraVPN, you can surf as usual, although you might find it a little slow. Unfortunately, we also had problems accessing Hulu.com and the BBC's iPlayer. As overcoming geographically-based limitations is one of the main reasons many people use a VPN, you'll just have to download UltraVPN to see if it is going to meet your particular needs.
In general, though, UltraVPN program is extremely easy to use and its IP anonymization worked well, so if it gives you access to the sites you want, UltraVPN is a good choice.
If it works with your favorite websites, UltraVPN is a great VPN solution.
