List of Free and Trial VPN Accounts Without Paying Upfront

With more services and freebies being geographically restricted, there is a frequent need to change our IP address to a specific country so that we are able to bypass the country or region restriction. There are two common ways of changing our IP address which is either through open proxy or VPN. Basically when connecting to a proxy or VPN, the internet traffic from our computer is encrypted and sent to the VPN/proxy servers to be decrypted and they will relay it to the destination. The below image would give you a better idea on how a VPN or proxy works.

How VPN works

Open proxies are mostly unstable, slow, don’t last for a long time and require manual configuration of the specific software to use the proxy. VPN would be a better choice because it is stable, fast and would automatically redirect all of your connections from your computer to the VPN without changing any settings. However, most of the VPNs out there are paid services that are commonly being used to protect the users data from being intercepted or hijacked at public WiFi hotspots through encryption. They too offer money back guarantee which means you will have make payment first via Paypal or credit/debit card and inform them within the guarantee period that you’re unhappy with their services.

The good news is, we have searched for VPN companies that offer free VPN trial accounts without making an upfront payment and briefly tested them to make sure that it is working. Most of the time you will just need to sign up for a free account, verify it by clicking on the activation link from your email and follow the given instructions to connect to their VPN for free. If you’re only using the VPN for a short period it’s best to use a temporary email address. Hopefully this will be a great resource for people who want to quickly use a VPN to change their IP address without wasting time in searching and testing. The VPN accounts list has been split into 2 categories; those that have a time limit and expire after xx hours or days (listed below), and those which don’t (listed on page 2) but may have some other restrictions such as bandwidth limit/expiry or upload/download speed limits etc.
