DroidVPN is a VPN service that is developed for Android mobile devices. The client for DroidVPN is now available for both Android and Windows PCs. On mobile devices, the DroidVPN for Android can be downloaded from the Appdodo.com and the user can register right from within the app.
VPN or a Virtual Private Network creates a private network within a public network. It is often used to wall off or isolate connected devices from the rest of the network by creating a tunnel through which the connected devices communicate as if they are on the same private network. For consumers, a VPN offers privacy and censorship bypass.
When a user connects to the internet, the connection takes place via the operator or the ISP who can see where the user is connection and what they are doing, unless the connection is encrypted. When the user is using a VPN, the user connects to the VPN via the operator or the ISP. The user can then go to other sites on the VPN who can anonymize the user, encrypt the data and bypass censorship as the operator or the ISP becomes unaware of the user’s activities. Even the site that the user connects to cannot know about the user, or his or her location.
DroidVPN has a free usage quota of a 100MB per day. Since it is specially designed for Android devices, it has a home screen widget that allows you to quickly turn on or turn off the service. With a premium account, you get to access any server on DroidVPN with unlimited speed and a near hundred percent uptime. This also helps avoid any throttling by the ISP. DroidVPN also comes with experimental user-requested features that the user can email the developers.
