Freedome lets you navigate the Internet safely, away from intruders and phishers. Besides, it allows visiting some sites that are frequently blocked in schools and offices. Also, since you are connecting through a third party, your real IP remains hidden, which prevents search providers from keeping track of your preferences. All this has a great impact on your privacy and freedom.

The program's superb interface makes it incredibly easy to use. Thus, with a few clicks, you can start using the service. It was nice to know that you are not required to provide any personal data during the trial period. The program lets you choose one of their multiple servers around the globe and even suggests using the nearest one. Fortunately, I could try the service for free without any restrictions, which allowed me to check its impact on browsing speed. Surprisingly for me, although most of these services take their tolls on speed, I noticed no slowing down processe, even when I was downloading large amounts of data.

In terms of privacy and security, the service is reliable. Firstly, it works as an antivirus filter blocking potentially dangerous sites. Secondly, it protects you against websites that use cookies to collect information about you. This, in turn, prevents them from using your personal data for social engineering. In this regard, it also has a feature that allows you to check how many sites track you in a 24-hour period.

In general, there’s only one word to describe Freedome and the service provided by its developers: excellent. Unfortunately, using the service permanently is not free of charge. Besides, there’s another aspect to consider: there’s always the risk of trusting your personal information to an intermediary, because considerable amounts of data about you will eventually have been collected by their servers.
