100% Free working Android VPN Service

Till now you may have read articles or posts about how to connect to a VPN service using your android so that you can access all those blocked sites. Many of the solutions may have suggested that you need a rooted phone or the VPN service is not free. In this post we will be letting you know how to connect your Android to a US based free VPN service and what all you can do with it. Also note that the method described here does not require a rooted device!

For those of you who want to know what a VPN (US vpn service) can do it allows you to hide your real location and make you appear as coming from  United States. It means you can access all those sites which are US only like Vevo, Hulu, Amazon Appstore etc. This solution is fast, reliable and better than connecting using a proxy. Its completely ad-free as well.
