So what do you do now?
Users of Vypr’s free VPN have some options:
Let’s just get this out of the way first off.
Free VPNs suck.
In fact, they suck your data as you use them and then sell that data to advertisers, doing to you the very thing you’re using them to avoid. That’s when they’re not stuffed with malware.
Using a free VPN is like trying to staunch a bleeding wound with a (dirty) vacuum cleaner.
When should you use a free VPN? Never.
(Just to be clear: Vypr was never doing this. Their free account gave you unpaid, limited access to their paid VPN, which has a solid rep and which we actually recommend for privacy and security. But VPNs that don’t charge anyone to use them and offer unlimited access? Like everything else that’s ‘free,’ you’re the product.)
Some premium PN services have a free option. Vypr just got rid of theirs, but there are others on the market. One of the best is TunnelBear. Less powerful and adaptable than Vypr, TunnelBear is nevertheless a respectable VPN that unlike ‘free’ options will actually keep you safe.
TunnelBear free users get a 500MB a month data limit. Otherwise, they get access to the full suite of TunnelBear features. For $0, this is about as good as it gets.
Pay for a VPN
VPN subscriptions are cheap. If you want something that:
- Lets you stream whatever, whenever
- Doesn’t spy on you or leak your data
- Keeps you anonymous online
- Doesn’t have a data limit
You’re gonna have to pay for it.
Good news? It’s a few bucks a month. Go for a three-year deal with NordVPN, a privacy and security powerhouse with a 10-year track record of keeping people safe, and pay $107.55 all in. That works out at $2.99/mo — about 9¢ a day.
If a hundred bucks for a VPN gives you a fit of rage— or you just don’t have the hundred bucks spare — how about getting a monthly deal? Most decent VPNs go for around $10 a month or less: TunnelBear’s monthly price is normally $9.99 a month, get a 50% discount visiting Tunnel Bear from the links below. Nord’s is $11.95 but with our special 75% off deal, comes in at $2.99 per month.
- Safe Wi-Fi Protection
- Loads Websites 3 To 5 Times Faster
- No Logging

Just keep Vypr and pay for it
Vypr’s not expensive either — in fact its monthly package is $9.95/mo. It’s a solid choice with good obfuscaiton so you can normally stream what you want, and the only logs it keeps are connection logs which it deletes after 30 days.
