We are onto Day 25 of TechPP Mega Christmas Giveaway! In case you failed to win a free license from Freedur VPN, here is yet another chance to win a quality premium VPN license!
HideIPVPN is a VPN (virtual private network) service that allows a node or endpoint (typically user’s computer) to create a logical connection or virtual circuit (tunnel) link to remote host, so that all traffic to Internet is routed through HideIPVPN’s servers in US or UK. What this means is with a HideIP account, your connection uses IP addresses based in the United States and United Kingdom!
This provides an opportunity to people outside these 2 countries to access services which are exclusive to US or UK alone. These services can include video sharing websites like Hulu, Sling, Fancast, Pandora, CWTV, AOL, ITV, BBC iPlayer etc. It can also be used to unblock blocked websites and unblock all instant messaging systems and VOIP applications like Skype, Google Voice etc.
HideIP VPN also provides advantage such as securing Internet connection when using open Wi-Fi hotspot wireless access to go online, bypass ISP traffic shaping as VPN connection is encrypted and compressed.
