Betternet is a client application that allows benefiting from VPN services, which are used to protect your privacy and bypass IP-based restrictions. The tool is characterized by its simple use. In fact, by clicking on the Connect button, the tool automatically connects you to the fastest VPN server available. However, this comes with the disadvantage that you cannot choose the desired server. By the way, Betternet’s network of servers is unluckily much smaller than that of other similar services.
The service uses strong encryption algorithms to secure your data. In this respect, OpenVPN VPN protocol and 256-bit AES encryption are used. However, several DNS and WebRTC leaks have been reported in the app, which poses a serious threat.
To conclude, Betternet is definitely not the securest VPN around; however, it can be used when you need anonymity and data security is not a great concern. Its main advantage is its being absolutely free. Since it requires no registration, it also has the advantage that you do not need to provide your name, credit card number or email address. However, it shows frequent adds, as a way to cover the costs. If you need more, you would perhaps like to see what its Premium version has to offer.
