Softonic review

A VPN up-and-comer

Atlas VPN is a free VPN program for PC developed and offered by Atlas VPN. This version offers users three available servers to choose from depending on their location. It's also able to unblock geo-restricted websites, as well as blocking ads, suspicious websites, and phishing links.

Compared to the likes of NordVPN or ExpressVPN, Atlas VPN has a narrower feature set. It does, however, have a good free version with no speed limits. Users will need to avail of a premium subscription if they need more advanced features, though.

Is it any good?

Atlas VPN is one of the more recent players in the VPN service industry, aiming to take a piece of the market from other more popular and established solutions. It features cross-platform compatibility across all major platforms and offers a pretty decent free version to boot. With it, you get JapanAustralia, and the US for server locations, unlimited speeds, and no daily data caps.

Atlas VPN gives you a 10GB monthly data allowance, which considering it's a free plan, is quite generous. It uses AES-256 cipher for encryption and IPSec/IKEv2 for its tunneling protocol. You give you more peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your data, there is also a kill switch feature that will automatically shut down your connection in case of interruptions.

Everything seems like an attractive option, but do note a couple of things before you dive in. Unblocking streaming services like Netflix can only be done with a premium subscription. The same goes if you want to use it simultaneously on multiple devices. Then, its connections speeds have been inconsistent. That last one may be attributed to the lack of other VPN protocol options.

An enticing option

All in all, Atlas VPN is a good option to consider if you're just looking to use a VPN service for casual purposes such as web browsing. The free version is generous with its data allowance and covers basic security and privacy needs. If you plan to stream or download a lot, though, a premium subscription is a must. Otherwise, it is worth giving it a try.
