Is there a free VPN service that works on Ubuntu?
I use Hotspot Shield (Free VPN) on the Windows. Do anyone know of a similar tool or service for Ubuntu?
- Would not require me to have any server.
- would hide my IP.
- Would effectively tunnel all my connections in Ubuntu.
- have free plans
please explain pros and cons of your suggestions.
VPN One Click is free (for one year) for Linux, Windows and Android.
Free VPN Connect for Linux
I just created script for automatic instant free OpenVPN connections to multiple free VPN services.
You can download it on GitHub.
Supported free services:
Script is automatic and takes all advertising money from service providers for not visiting their web pages, so plese donate.
EDIT: You must be administrator to establish connection to VPN

Based on their web site, Hotspot Shield is not a VPN but just a web proxy service that you connect to with HTTPS:
Hotspot Shield protects your identity by ensuring that all web transactions (shopping, filling out forms, downloads) are secured through HTTPS.
It should be possible to connect to it from Ubuntu too, but maybe you'll have to configure things manually (e.g. if you need SSL certificates). You might want to contact them about that.
