    "I need a VPN for a freelance job, but it's not super high paying so I hate to shell out a bunch more money for one. I decided to try Hide.me and see if it would work for the job. The restrictions hit after a pretty small data transfer, so I think I'll have to keep looking."

    "I believe this free VPN will be popular with people looking for a new platform or server to access and interface with their current OpenVPN on OS X. The ease of adding the VPN to existing configurations and encryption information makes this a very desirable application. I could not find any further information or reviews on the application and am very interested in seeing how the app is viewed by those who have already used and experienced any problems. "

    "If you're tired of running into "this service is not available in your region" messages when you browse the web, but don't want to saddle yourself with a learning how to be a tech geek, this VPN does the trick. Simple, easy, even my mom can use it without problems. She just clicks, waits for it to tell her it's connected, and she can surf videos and other stuff that she can't get where she lives without having to call me. I love it!"
