Unlimited Free VPN – Betternet for Chrome creates a virtual private network (VPN) on your compute that lets you view websites anonymously and access blocked sites in your area.

One of the best reasons to use a VPN is when you want to access more television shows and films on Netflix. Netflix charges a monthly fee and lets you stream as many videos as you want on your computer, over your phone, or with a device like an XBOX One or Roku player. Many people do not know that Netflix actually limits what they can view based on where they live. Those living in Canada and England can watch “The Big Bang Theory” and other shows that are not available to American users. Hulu and other sites have similar restrictions in place. With Unlimited Free VPN – Betternet for Chrome, you can now watch all the shows and videos you want as well as access sites blocked by your ISP or your country.

Though it only works when browsing on Chrome, it's a completely free program that you can install and set up in just minutes. You never need to create an account, log in, or even give the program your name. Another benefit of using this program is that it lacks any ads. Other similar programs come loaded with so many ads that you might have a hard time watching videos or reading content on the page.

After installing the program, it adds a small icon of its mascot on the top of your browser. This icon should sit right next to your address bar. When you click on a link and load a blocked page, you simply click on the icon. Unlimited Free VPN – Betternet for Chrome will then reload the page and give you access to all the features of the page.

Unlimited Free VPN – Betternet for Chrome actually creates a VPN for your computer that gives you a different IP address. When you go back to that site and it looks for your current location, the program will show that you are in a new state or country. This removes the block and gives you complete access. As the program comes with an icon that attaches to your browser, you can't use this program in a library or school. If you want to access new websites and view more videos on Netflix or Hulu though, Unlimited Free VPN – Betternet for Chrome can help.

Pros:

  • Can access blocked sites by simply clicking on the program icon on your browser
  • Lets you view restricted content on Chrome
  • Does not require that you create an account or log in
  • Lacks any ads
  • Works on popular sites like Netflix, Facebook, Hulu and Twitter
