VPN services come in many shapes and sizes but one company that are pushing the boundaries is Liquidum with their RocketVPN app that is available for both Android and iOS devices.
Unlike other VPN models the Android app is free to download and comes with 250mb included data per month.
If you're after a free service for your mobile device then RocketVPN could certainly be the app for you.
Of course 250mb is slightly limiting but if you only check emails and use messanging services then it could certainly be enough and you've got a free VPN service just by downloading the app.
Most users are going to want slightly more in the way of data transfer and for those of you who want to browse websites, stream media and carry out other data intensive tasks then RocketVPN allows you to upgrade via the app to their Premium Plan that will increase the data allowance.
One of the most useful features of the app is it allows you to access content that is not available in your country. This includes video streaming websites such as blocked YouTube videos or other TV services.
Unblocking is not just limited to streaming content as with the RocketVPN app you can also download restricted apps and access websites that would otherwise be blocked in your location.
Of course the main purpose of a VPN service is to encrypt your data and protect your privacy which RocketVPN does as standard so regardless if you're trying to access blocked content or another reason your data will automatically be protected as a matter of course.
Free VPN apps have got a bad rep in recent years for sharing data as the Hola VPN fiasco showed. However, RocketVPN ensures that none of the connection data you transfer is shared with third parties and by offering a premium service they can afford to offer a free service with limited data transfer without the need to sell your connection data.
RocketVPN is currently scoring 4.3 out of 5 on the Google Play Store and from over 46,000 reviews this is high praise indeed.
Between 1 and 5 million users have already downloaded the RocketVPN app and Google Play have awarded them a “Top Developer” badge further praising their credentials.
As more of us now do the majority of our web browsing from mobile devices such as tablets and phones the need to protect what we do on these devices increases.
Often we remember to secure our online presence via our desktop computers but in reality our mobile devices are much more at risk as we connect to public wi-fi sources much more regularly using such portable devices. RocketVPN makes protecting your mobile device simple and with one click install from the Google Play store it's accessible to all skill levels.
RocketVPN is free for the first 250mb so there is nothing to lose, you can install it, try it and if you like it, upgrade, if not you can simply hit the uninstall button without paying a penny.
