TUR VPN PROXY app for Android is a free VPN app from developer PRIVATEX VPN PROXY APPS. Similar to VPN 360, Turbo VPN and Hola Free VPN, this app allows you to connect to the Internet via a proxy, allowing for more privacy and access to restricted websites.
This app’s logo is a basketball on fire. It sums up nicely one of the primary uses of this app. This is because it can allow you to watch unrestricted sports matches in real-time from different parts of the world, something you might not achieve when travelling abroad.
Play online games and videos
One of the major uses for TUR VPN PROXY is to play videos, an ability people take for granted until they find out it’s not possible to do it everywhere. For instance, certain media outlets only offer videos for specific territories. The same goes for online games, where the servers you connect to may block you from access due to your location.
With this app, you can connect as if you were in a different location, thus unlocking the same content and features as if you were connecting from that region. However, bear in mind connection speed will inevitably go down as a result.
Protect your privacy
Another important feature of TUR VPN PROXY is privacy. When you connect to the Internet, you leave digital footprints everywhere, such as browsing history, IP and MAC addresses, and more.
Connecting via this VPN means you first connect to a Virtual Private Network, which in turn is connected to the Internet. It results in your real IP address becoming masked, which allows for more privacy when browsing. It also offers AES-128 encryption, meaning your data is transmitted with the highest security standards.
Simple tool that does the job
TUR VPN PROXY doesn’t promise more than it can actually deliver. It’s a VPN proxy and offers everything you would expect from such software on Android while throwing in extra features such as 128-bit encryption. Most importantly, it does it for free.
It’s also surprising for a free VPN that connection speeds, including video streaming, are good enough for most needs. However, some users have claimed that connection speed is low, something that will hopefully be resolved in a future update. The only negative aspect is that the company might record your activity.
