Suggestions for a Free Linux VPN

Hey mates,
I finally migrated to Linux MINT completly and am searching for a free Linux VPN. Of course I know they aren’t as good as paid ones but for the moment I just need a simple solution. Do you guys have any suggestions?

Vpnbook?..

The thing is; if you use a free VPN then there’s a 100% chance they’ll sell your data.

You could use i2p for anonymity. Also, Vpnbook and other sites have openvpn configs, but make sure you dont let out dns leaks.

To be honest; torsocks or Tor is pretty good. Depends what you want to achieve.

Thanks, Vpnbook seems fine :slight_smile:. TORs speed sucks so I prefer to use a VPN sometimes. Against the whole “TOR isn’t safe anymore” stuff I like and trust it :smile:. Of course I take DNS-Leaks into account :wink:.

Let’s be honest here and I think everyone can agree on this: There is no such thing as a “Free VPN”. You ALWAYS pay them in some way. If it’s not money it’s your data, like @pry0cc said.

I recommend AirVPN by far. It is super cheap (7€ a month is very VERY little) and they have proven their trustworthiness over the years. Plus it works on pretty much any device.

and let’s be honest, 7 euros is nothing, I earn that much by just mowing old people’s lawns on Saturday noon. Don’t tell me you’re not up for that ;).

I can top that. proxy.sh is offering $2.75 a month (if you pay yearly) The solid package offers 57 countries.

I have personal experience with frootvpn and my experience is mostly positive. They’re fairly quick and always works, as well as competitive pricing.

Have you tried torsocks? That just uses 1 exit node. So is much faster.

I used torify(torsocks) + a VPS(configured openvpn)
It works like a charm!

Expanding on this: You can get a super cheap VPS, and free for a month with our affiliate link, then it’s more than just a VPN. It’s a VPS and a VPN.

Never tried torsocks but it seems pretty useful! And if you want to have a look at the 0x00sec affiliate VPS you can find it here.

Well, AirVPN have servers in the US, which means you can land on one of those servers, giving the US authority over those said logs.

I recommend Mullvad. Cheap, and the US has no jurisdiction in this country. (Sweden) also they have good privacy laws.

You can choose which server you want to connect to. Just don’t connect to US severs and you’re good. I had never had a better VPN experience than with AirVPN.

Hey I am new here and I’ve been a fan of your work for along time, is there any way I could get in contact with you?

PM him here on the site @VintageFox, or come on IRC, @TheDoctor sometimes lurks there.

You really need to have a VPN under your control if you can even have a hope at trusting it. That said, getting a cloud instance on DigitalOcean or Amazon Lightsail then running OpenVPN on it is a good start.

Psssst. 0x00sec has an OpenVPN server thanks to L0k1. 1337’s of the m0n7h have access to it.
