Go online securely with ZPN Connect
ZPN Connect is a free VPN client that allows you to connect to the internet securely, even over unsecured connections like public wi-fi hotspots. In addition, this VPN app allows you to bypass blocks placed on certain sites by schools, employers or the government, letting you access whatever you want wherever you are. This software is intended as a client for publisher ZPN's VPN service, which has both free and paid options.
Using the client
Visually, ZPN Connect isn't much to look at, but although it's simple it's very functional. You can see all your connection stats at a glance on the display panel and change your settings through a series of menus. What isn't clear is that changes to your settings won't be applied until you reboot, so be sure to close out before continuing. Everything else about the client is clear and easy to understand, however. Once running, the service is reliable; like any VPN, you'll see some reduction of connection speeds, but that's the price you pay for online privacy.
If you want a simple, easy-to-use VPN client, ZPN Connect is a solid choice. It doesn't have a lot of support material, so if you don't know much about using a VPN it might be a good idea to choose a more newbie-friendly option.
