When choosing a free VPN, you can often find good options even with top services that respect user anonymity.
I want to say right away that I do not recommend any particular VPN since it is difficult for an outsider to assess VPN services’ actual level of compliance with their own rules. In addition, a 100% privacy guarantee can only be obtained by setting up your VPN.
In a comparative analysis, it is worth paying attention to the jurisdiction of VPN providers. This may indirectly affect the level of privacy provided by the service. For example, some demanding users are wary of VPNs registered in the countries of the Five Eyes alliance (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK, and USA) or other similar partnerships.
The results of a review of VPN services that claim no logging and tracking of users are presented below and are current as of the material’s publication date.
