With an active VPN connection, you protect your privacy, bypass country restrictions, get around censorship and hide your traces. With the free versions of Avira Phantom VPN, you are restricted to 500 MB/month of data, or 1 GB/month if you register – but you will need our unlimited VPN if you want to surf the web non-stop with high-grade security. If you stream videos with your free account, your data will run out very quickly. We particularly recommend using the Avira Phantom VPN Pro when accessing public WiFi networks, such as in hotels and restaurants. If you surf online a lot and want the best protection from cybercriminals and companies collecting data about you, Avira Phantom VPN Pro is your version of choice.
