It has been more than a month since I started using TrustConnect a free VPN – ‘Virtual Private Network’ service from Comodo a well-known name in PC security tools segment. I am also fan of their other free tools like Firewall and Internet Security with Antivirus. I thought it would be the right time to give review of this cool VPN service. For those friends who are not aware of what VPN is, In one term, VPN masks your actual IP address provided by your Internet Service Provider and assigns another IP address to protect your online identity. So, what is it for us? You can automatically get the answer to the question about how an IP address reveals your identity, if you open-up any IP finding sites like whatismyipaddress.
The VPN creates a protective shield around your Internet Connection, by encrypting all your Internet traffic it prevents others from attacking or scanning your system from the local network that you’re using to connect to the Internet. It would do so by assigning another IP address which may belong to another country. So when the IP address finding tools looks to find your details by analyzing the IP address, what they really get is false information about your IP address, your location/region and your Internet Service Provider etc., Usually any good VPN service is not 100% free, there would be some restrictions. The free account of TrustConnect comes with a monthly cap of 10GB which is very much sufficient for normal web browsing and also has Ads which will be displayed on the top of every page where ever possible. After reaching the cap your service account get blocked till the next month. In the next month your account would be activated again and you have another 10GB for that month. My VPN connection got terminated abruptly only once during my usage In the last one month. And of course TrustConnect gave the message in a pop-up window. And i could able to reconnect after few minutes. Apart of this small inconvenience i am very happy about this service.You can also view the usage statistics from your service account online in Comodo website.
You can sign-up for the FREE TrustConnect VPN by accessing the FREE TructConnect. I am not finding this URL directly in Comodo website now, but can be found in google search.

Along with this i am also using another free VPN service proXPN alternatively, which is having another type of limit to the free version. I may probably give my review about this tool later.
