With UltraVPN, you can ensure that your computer security, as well as your personal privacy and anonymity are fully protected when you use the Internet. UltraVPN is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) client for Windows that securely tunnels all of the data exchanged between remote servers on the Internet and your PC through their high-performance VPN servers.

There are many reasons to install and use a program like UltraVPN. Its most important benefit is that it hides your PC's actual IP address and replaces it with the one of the VPN server the software connects to. This makes it much harder to track your location and online activities.

As UltraVPN allows you to select from VPN servers located in several countries, you get the opportunity to give your PC a "virtual" location in another country. Doing so allows you to access websites and online services that are only available in specific countries. For example, if you want to watch the live stream of a British TV sports channel that would normally be restricted to people from the UK, you can set UltraVPN to give you a UK IP address and bypass this restriction.

If you're in a country where some websites you want to visit are blocked, this VPN client helps you access them and go around any censorship attempts. All data transmitted by the application is encrypted, which provides you one more layer of protection if you're using a shared Internet connection, like the WiFi at a hotel or restaurant.

Installing and configuring UltraVPN is relatively simple, even for users without too much technical knowledge. The program uses the OpenVPN architecture, which is not only highly secure, but practically impossible to block. If your Internet provider prevents you from establishing VPN connections by other means, there is a high chance that a VPN client based on OpenVPN will still work.

More advanced users can take advantage of some of its additional features, like using a provided HTTP or SOCKS proxy to make your web browsing anonymous instead of a traditional VPN connection. However, the performance and reliability of the proxy servers offered by UltraVPN's network isn't as good as what their main VPN servers have to offer.

UltraVPN requires new users to sign up and create an account before they can connect to a VPN server. But don't let this deter you from trying this program, as the service is free and signing up doesn't even require an email address.

Pros

  • One of the simplest VPN clients available today.
  • Several servers to choose from in different countries.
  • No paid subscription required.
  • Provides excellent security and anonymity for Internet users.

Cons

  • Proxy servers are provided as a VPN alternative, but some sites don't load through them.
  • Connectivity problems and low speeds can happen when a specific VPN server is overloaded.
