Spotflux (http://www.spotflux.com/) has announced the premiere of a VPN app for the Android platform, in addition to its existing lineup of VPN apps for Windows, Mac and iOS. Spotflux is one of the best free VPN service providers in the market, and as with all free VPN service providers, Spotflux offers a free version to upsell a premium VPN version to their users.
However, that should not be a deterrent to choosing Spotflux if you are looking for a free VPN service. In terms of VPN usage and overall browsing experience, Spotflux is really a segment ahead of its immediate competitors.
With a free VPN access from Spotflux, you get to enjoy all VPN related features such as traffic encryption, server changing and traffic rerouting. However, you can choose a premium VPN subscription for enjoying exclusive features such as Bandwidth Crunching, VPN Connection Scheduling, Malware Protection and Tracker Blocking. The new Spotflux Android VPN app also comes with the premium features, and upon installation, you get access to a select few premium services for a period of 10 days, after which, the app runs under normal free subscription.
All Spotflux apps are easy to install and run. It runs in the background with minimal interference. All apps are well designed and intuitive, and you don’t need to tinker with any manual VPN settings on your device. The program runs on the background, and there will be two icons in the system tray (for desktop & laptop applications); one to show the VPN connectivity, and the other to show the status of premium features such as malware and tracker blocking.
However, being a free VPN service, Spotflux VPN will utilize your information for sending advertisements and for upselling their premium services. We cannot assure you that your personal data provided to Spotflux will remain with Spotflux, as it is clearly stated in Spotflux TOS that your data may be imparted to third parties. Spotflux is also known to have issues related to VPN downtime and the reliability is not what you would call excellent, but being a free service, there is nothing of concern to complain.
A paid VPN subscription is always better performing, but if you are really inclined to use a free VPN service, Spotflux is one of the best options available in the market right now.
