Hola: Free VPN to bypass internet restrictions and open blocked websites

  1. Before using any VPN service it would be advisable to understand the differences in the various VPN protocols such as PPTP, L2TP, IPsec and SSL.This article focuses on using Hola as a VPN for the primary function of being able to access geo-restricted sites such as Netflix. In this respect it may serve the purpose, however most modern browsers implement the geolocation API (as defined by the W3C) which enables browsers to detect the geographic location of the device it’s running on and should be considered. Depending on the use of the VPN, using only “true VPN” protocols will provide the fundamental functions and security.

  2. After dling and during installation, my pc windows get blue screen death and I’m not
    sure to reinstall it again or not!!! I hope the programmer of this VPN will answer to my
    issue/problem to fix it soon!

  3. Huge Vouch for Softether VPN!!

    I have been using Softether for a couple of years as my preferred VPN. It was originally developed as a university test project in Japan. Since being officially released early this year it has been well supported, stable and has never missed a beat for me.

    I have a Linux VPS (CentOS 6) running my Softether server 24/7 that my Win7 & 8.1 systems connect to flawlessly. The massive advantage Softether has, is that it is capable of multi-protocol configurations. such as L2TP/IPsec.
    Softether is also easy to setup, work with and you can easily use it across multiple devices and platforms. For instance, if you have a home-router running DD-WRT firmware you can connect your router directly to it meaning all devices on your network will be routed through the VPN with ease.
    Another bonus with Softether is that if you’re not so inclined to configure your own server, there is a whole bunch of FREE servers you can bounce between depending on which ones are providing you with the best connections. These servers are privately hosted but safe to connect for your web browsing pleasure.
    In my honest and professional opinion, Softether is a great VPN which stands out from all other available options… paid or non-paid.

  4. Thank You, Logix Net, It seems my comment is deleted by admins at twc, I’ll definitely switch to Softether VPN, I get to understand, its better than OpenVPN, Thanx…….

  5. Great article . The DNS option is better than using a VPN regarding content streaming because you can achieve direct connection with the media station ex. Netflix and avoid the “middle-man”. Personally, I am using UnoTelly which is similar to Unblock-us (or other DNS service). Perhaps you should check UnoTelly as well if you haven’t done so.

  6. Hola is free tool but i am not using free tools because of security and privacy. I still believe on paid vpn services which are secured and reliable i find the tool from vpnranks.

  7. So like, I’m on a chromebook and I wanna easily get onto blocked sites and my chromebook is stupid and wont let me go on hangouts or google+ at home any more

    It will only let me go on it at school

  8. I have used multiple free vpn services. On top i would say is ivacy lite and hotspot shield.The reason I put ivacy lite on top is because of unlimited bandwidth.

  9. Nicely explained. You are aboslutely right about the vpn protocols. Correct me if I am wrong but I have heard PPTP is the most secured VPN protocol among all. Other additional feature offered by the VPN-Ivacy I am using is dedicated IP address and NAT Firewall.

  10. Hola is an IP sharing facility where you give them your IP and get another IP in return. But it is equally dangerous as proxies are, I use ivacy vpn for premium security.
