What We Like
- Free VPN: VPN Gate is currently — and will likely always be — free for all users.
- No data or device limits: Unlike most free VPNs, VPN Gate doesn’t impose data caps or limitations on the number of devices you can connect.
- Great unblocking capabilities: For a free VPN, VPN Gate does well in unblocking restricted websites and getting around censorship.
What We Don't Like
- No native apps: You’ll need to use third-party apps to access VPN Gate, and the setup process is more complex than usual VPNs.
- Data logging: For the protection of its servers hosted by volunteers, VPN Gate collects and stores activity logs for at least three months.
- Limited locations: Since its servers are hosted by volunteers, the locations to which you can connect are limited. Most of the servers are in Japan and South Korea.
