This free tool was developed to let users all around the world browse the Web anonymously. Furthermore, you can use it to get access to region-blocked websites or resources that are not allowed to view in your country.
UltraSurf was developed by the UltraReach company based in Silicon Valley. It was a small group of engineers that believed in the idea of free Internet, where everyone can exchange information without limits. Also, they wanted to circumvent the Great Chinese firewall and give hope to the China Mainland Internet users.
Today, UltraSurf has become one of the most popular free tools for anonymous browsing. Millions of users around the world are using it to get access to the websites that were blocked for users from certain countries as well as the sites blocked by the local government.
This software utilizes sophisticated anti-blocking technology – Internet traffic travels through an encrypted channel between the user’s devices and UltraReach servers that constantly change their IP addresses and use mirror sites. UltraSurf encrypts traffic with a 256-bit key.
After you run the app, it automatically connects to the faster free VPN server. As we said above, the information is encrypted, and your real IP address is hidden while you are online. It is almost impossible for anyone to track you down or steal your personal information, including browsing habits, real location, and so on. If you don’t like the server location (for example, you are connected to the server in Asia, while you would like to have European IP), you can switch to another server manually or restart your connection by pressing the Retry button. When you are back online, and VPN is on, you will see a notification in the Status field.
UltraSurf is a popular choice for watching videos on streaming platforms, accessing file sharing websites, unlocking social media banned in their countries, playing online games, and so on. The app makes you completely anonymous, so you don’t have to worry about leaking any personal information. To use UltraSurf, you don’t even need an account or any other kind of registration with your personal data. Another big plus of the service that makes it a step ahead of the competition is its no-ads policy. In addition to that, you are not limited to Internet browsing (no time, bandwidth, or traffic limits whatsoever). With UltraSurf, you will never have to worry about your data usage, and you are not forced to watch annoying sponsored vids before getting a chance to connect to the server.
In our opinion, UltraSurf is also one of the best mobile VPN applications. The interface of the mobile version is so straightforward that it only has one switch for connecting to the service. The rest is done automatically by the app. When you are online with VPN up and running, the app will show you a timer with time and data statistics (uploaded/downloaded). Sometimes this simplicity can work against you, for example, when you have no options to select the country or switch to another server manually when you need a faster connection. However, despite these minor disadvantages, the app remains solid, fast, and reliable. What else can you ask from a free application? Unblock websites and services, hide your identity and browsing habits, and don’t watch ads while doing that!
