  3. Open VPN is fine but for complete security and anonymous web browsing i always use "Hotspot Shield" free vpn. It encrypts my network traffic, secures my sensitive information such as credit card information, important passwords, downloads and instant messages. I would only recommend this VPN for private browsing and secure online identity at public wifi hotspots. Check it out here - VPN Client

  4. I tried Hotspot Shield, but their free version is full of annoying banner ads that according to their terms of service, can infuse or overlay over your browser viewing area!!! I DONT WANT ANYONE TRACKING MY BROWSING WITH ADS FROM OTHER COMPANIES! TRY OPENVPN'S PROVATE TUNNEL...NO ADS!!! :-)
