Mobile VPNs
« on: November 03, 2017, 12:12:32 am »
Hello, First off, no I don't mean to use this for any LEWD or illegal purposes xD (although you've seen that and knowing people these days you're thinking "well that's the first thing he said so OF CORSE he's using it for that" and the rest are like "he's elaborating so of corse he is going to use it for that")

Ahem... anyways. let me explain.

My school's WiFi network has been quite the pain in the ass and has blocked Discord, Telegram, Facebook, Reddit, This site, and more are blocked. Surprisingly they haven't blocked twitter yet because... I don't know really...

Anyways. I've been trying a VPN right now called TurboVPN and it's been pretty good except that it'll stop working and I must restart the app everytime I lock my phone or (IDK how to say...) press the button that makes the screen go dark so I don't press any widgets and find out I'm browsing the web or something.

I was wondering if some of you guys who have used VPN's to get around annoying school restrictions (because my school is literally blocking all Chats and that's annoying because I get bored in lunch lines and some classes and love chatting with my friends) and if you know of any VPN's that wouldn't need to be restarted just for locking my phone screen?

Thanks!

tunnel bear is a pretty good mobile vpn though you only get 500mb of browsing data month, or else you have to pay for a bigger plan (which are really cheap)

Use Opera's VPN.

They have a mobile app for it and it's free and unlimited. It can be slow at times but it most certainly gets the job done.

Note: You can also use Orbot which will route you through the Tor network, works well and is completely anonymous compared to the typical free VPNs you get.

Hello! I'm going to be trying the Opera VPN as well and I've read that some of my issues with being disconnected often when closeing my phone might mean needing to add the VPN to an exception list in my phone security but otherwise I'll be seeing how these all check out. Thanks!
