VPNs have their place in the world. They allow users to do many things, such as enter a secure network, emulate a physical location, and browse securely. A few days ago Jason reviewed SaferVPN. Today, I bring you Rocket VPN, by Liquidum Limited. Rocket VPN is a great tool for many of your VPN needs at an affordable price.
Rocket VPN boasts some bold colors and a neat material design to fit right in with all your native Google apps. A hamburger menu houses a few options and the login options for those customers that choose to pay for the service.
The built-in browser allows you to surf the net worry-free. Right next to the browser option is a location selector that allows you to set a specific region for your browsing needs. if you want your searches to appear as if you are in the UK, no problem: simply set the location to London, launch, and you are surfing from London.
There is also a built-in app launcher that allows you to set specific locations for specifics apps that you may want to launch via VPN, such as Netflix, Hulu, or Pandora. This is very handy if you are trying to access content that may be restricted by region.
Unfortunately, there are very few locations to choose from when you compare it to other VPN services. That being said, the locations seem to work as intended. When I link to the UK, many Netflix shows available only in the US don’t show up. Also, while logged into UK, Pandora (which is not currently available in the UK due to licensing issues) does not work.
Admittedly, I am not a fan of personal VPN use. It has many professional uses and some niche uses if you want to emulate your location somewhere else or secure your communication data on an unprotected WiFi.
Rocket VPN is a great tool for those with limited need for VPN access. It is free (ad-supported) up to 500MB per month with no login required. If your VPN needs seem to be more intricate, I would recommend looking into a more robust client.
