Decent but privacy is iffy. 2 stars by antivenum790 Oct 03, 2017
Fairly easy to install and use, but it allows others that use the service to route portions of data through you and vice versa. They also may cache information you accessed for later use. You can find this in their Terms quite easily. While in their Privacy Notice they say they don't save any personal identifying information they go on right afterwards to say this, and I quote. "Please note, however, that for purposes of this Privacy Notice, AnchorFree does not include your IP address or unique device identifier within the definition of Personal Information." That means they do save unique device identifiers and IP addresses. Though they say they don't tie it directly to your online activities nor do the cookies they may install. While the free version shares things with advertisers they also say they don't control what those people do with the information. Not top tier and ads are annoying, but if you have nothing else and don't trust other free VPNs it is something to at least use. Wouldn't trust it with anything truly sensitive. show Review details
