Subject description: public VPN relay servers hosted by volunteers

Review : https://www.vpnranks.com/vpn-gate-review/

The 7961 Public VPN Relay Servers by volunteers around the world.
You may connect to any of these VPN servers with: Username: 'vpn', Password: 'vpn'.

This is a free service run by volunteers, like Tor network.

About the VPN Gate Academic Project
Administrators of VPN Gate Public VPN Relay Servers

This web site (www.vpngate.net) is hosted at University of Tsukuba, Japan. University of Tsukuba hosts just only this web server. No other servers are not responsible to University of Tsukuba.

Each Public VPN Relay Server of VPN Gate are not hosted at University of Tsukuba. These VPN servers are hosted by each volunteer. These are distributed over the world.

If you can find a contact address of the volunteer operator in the line of VPN Gate VPN Server List, you may contact him directly. If there is no contact with the server entry on the list, it means that the volunteer hasn't supplied the contact address. You cannot make a contact to such an operator. (No contact address means that even we cannot contact to him.)

Users can freely connect to any of thousands of servers run by volunteers around the world. As I write this, there are 9,111 registered public VPN relay servers, of which 96 are online. This number will vary somewhat from day-to-day, but there will always be lots of them to choose from.

SoftEther is a free and open source alternative VPN platform. The SoftEther VPN protocol is also referred to as SSL-VPN. This is because it is based on HTTPS and therefore uses SSL/TLS encryption and TCP port 443.

This makes SoftEther VPN traffic all but indistinguishable from regular secure HTTPS traffic. Thus it is very difficult for firewalls to block. The SoftEther SSL-VPN protocol is therefore great for overcoming various forms of VPN blocks.

The most important thing to understand about VPN Gate is that it is run by volunteers. This means anyone can volunteer to operate a VPN Gate server. And any volunteer can therefore spy on your internet activity (unless it is hidden by HTTPS).
In fairness, privacy is not what VPN Gate is for. It should instead be seen as an anti-censorship and anti-public WiFi hacking tool.

Conclusion :
This is a university student project, with some flaws, mostly privacy-wise. Speed is inconsistent, better find a server near you.
Pro : free. Used in countries where state censorhips prevents citizens from browsing the World Wide Web.
Con : logs are kept. Volunteers are in charge of servers. Low to medium speed, not enough for streaming (Netflix).
