If you’re serious about your online security, then you might consider a virtual private network (VPN). VPNs add an extra layer of security to your Internet browsing when connecting to public networks. Not only do they encrypt your data that’s going through the network, but they can mask your IP address. Most VPN services come with a monthly fee. That said, there are many that offer free trials or money-back guarantees so you can find the best service fit for your needs.

Every now and again, Ausdroid accepts a sponsored story about VPNs to help highlight the choices that exist. Here’s six VPN providers which offer free trials and software designed for Android, so feel free to check out your options below, listed in no particular order.

1. VyprVPN

VyprVPN is a good VPN option for Android users. It’s completely compatible with Android devices and even features an Android app. It offers over 700 servers in more than 70 locations with over 200,000 IP addresses. That gives you tons of options for connecting to the Internet anonymously, and you can even customize your VPN connection.

VyperVPN boasts fast servers and no third parties, meaning they manage their own hardware and software to ensure your data privacy. Start your service with a three-day free trial. If you like what you see, upgrade for as little as $5 per month for unlimited data usage and simultaneous device connection.

2. SaferVPN

SaferVPN offers everything you need in a VPN provider. Use the service to browse the Internet anonymously, secure your data when surfing the Internet, and access restricted websites. It’s designed to work with all your devices, including Android.

    Private Internet Access is my go to. It’s running on my synology NAS at home.


    A more important question is which of these VPN providers keep a log. When I was searching around for a good VPN, the only one I found back then that didn’t keep a log was Private Internet Access. For USD40 per year, I get a good selection of connection locations, reasonable speeds and no logs for someone to look at and work out which IP address was used by whom. And PIA works on all Android and OpenVPN. They also have their own Android App which works really well. Would I recommend PIA? You betcha.


    Agreed. I’ve been using PIA at home for several years without a single issue. Didn’t realise they had an Android app, will look into that!


    This is well timed. I’ve been using PureVPN but they have became painfully slow to connect and the speeds have dropped considerably since I started with them a year ago. I’m thinking of going with NordVPN, has anyone got any feedback on them?


    Hey guys, post your coupons for the above VPN’s.
    I know NordVPN has an offer of 72% off for 2 years with code 2YDeal2017.


    I use PureVPN and has been great, pretty standard speeds, but the price for 2 years is really cheap. They did one annoying thing once and suspended my account when I went overseas. They “detected” that I was not logging in from my usual country and I had to email them to ask them to re-connect me.
    I’ve also used CyberGhost, again the usual good speeds, but their plans, upgrades etc were confusing and misleading so I moved to PureVPN.
    Oh well that’s my 2c worth!!


    Opera VPN is a good free option if all you’re looking for is a simple way to access blocked content.

    I’m finding TurboVPN is the best I’ve tried. It’s free, unfortunately, so no way to remove ads or support developers, but simple and works.

    I tried PureVPN (based on the Ausdroid article btw) for over a year, and it was appalling. Unusably bad, dropouts, failures to connect, died after a single web page usually. Oh and complex to use.


    Sadly those are the things you only find out by trying; PureVPN is easy for some things, and yet complex for others. For example, I prefer OpenVPN software to third party solutions, and with PureVPN, that wasn’t especially easy to set up.
