VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a service that provides greater security and privacy when using the Internet. It works so that all Internet traffic takes place on the principle of “tunneling”, where your device connects to another network where your IP address is hidden, and all your data is encrypted.
There are many reasons why you should use a VPN, and security and anonymity on the Internet are the most important among them, although there are others. It often happens that certain digital products cannot be bought in some countries, and it also happens that you cannot watch the video on YouTube because it is not available in your country. A VPN can help here. VPN allows you to fictitiously move into another country, while you, of course, stay in your house.
Introducing SetupVPN, a free plug-in for the Mozilla Firefox browser, that will help you maintain your privacy online and give you access to Internet content that is not available in your country, and is also excellent for beginners.
How Does SetupVPN Work?
After installing the SetupVPN plugin, the first thing you need to do is select the language the plugin will use, after which you must create a free account. Creating an account is easy and all you have to do is enter your email address and the password you want to use. After that, you need to go to your email and verify the registration. Be cautious if you don’t receive the verification email. It is possible, as it happened to us, that the email went to the Spam folder.
After this, log in to your newly created account and select the country you want to virtually move. When you select a country, everything else happens automatically and does not require any user input, that is why SetupVPN is perfect for beginners. In the free version, it is possible to choose between 12 countries, while in the paid version this number is more than 100.
While we were testing it, SetupVPN worked perfectly, and we didn’t come across any major issue common with free VPN programs. These problems are ads and the slow internet speed. As for the ads, apart from the offer to buy the premium version, we did not come across any ads. In terms of speed, the internet worked great for us and we watched 1080p clips on YouTube without any problems.
SetupVPN Is a Great Free Option for Beginners
VPN programs are not considered as complicated programs, which require a lot of prior knowledge from the user, but many of them have settings for which you need to know what you are doing in order not to make a mistake. SetupVPN is extremely simple and apart from choosing the country you want to “move to”, there are no other options, so it’s perfect for beginners. We suggest you try it.
