ZPN Connect is a free and feature-rich VPN client for Windows PCs.

ZPN Connect is a VPN client for Windows, which means that it helps you create and manage virtual private networks. By connecting to a remote server via a VPN, you can access websites and other Internet-services without exposing your IP address and other aspects of your identity. ZPN is free to use, and unlike most free VPN clients, ZPN doesn’t serve you ads, which can diminish connection performance. It does; however, limit your overall bandwidth to ten GB per month.

ZPN has servers strategically placed across the world. Keep in mind that this is a paid service as well, but you can access all of these servers even with a free account. The service will provide you server options to minimize latency, and you can have it randomly assign a server if location doesn’t matter, or you can choose a server based on your particular needs at the time, such as accessing video.

Using ZPN provides you with a number of benefits. First and foremost, it hides your IP address, which makes it practically impossible to identify you online. It also encrypts your communication. That added security is particularly valuable when connecting to public Wi-Fi hotspots and the like. Another benefit of disguising your IP is being able to access geo-restricted content. For instance, the BBC only serves most videos to UK connections, and connecting via a UK server will allow you access.

ZPN is very easy to get started with and use. It does provide advanced options that power users can tweak to their preferences. Casual users, on the other hand, can have the app pull configurations from the Web for a hands-off experience. ZPN also features a stable kill switch, which means that if you activate this feature and your connection to the remote server ever fails for any reason, the program will automatically kill your connection to the Internet in order to ensure your protection.

Pros

  • Free and no ads
  • Simple to configure and use
  • Wide selection of remote servers
  • Kill switch

Cons
