If you are security conscious, it’s likely you use VPN’s on a regular basis. It’s also probable that you jump between different VPN apps on the Play Store to find which one is the better of the lot. If this sounds like you, Seed4.me VPN and Proxy is the ideal app for you. Available on the Play Store, it is free and has a 4.5 star rating.
I was quite surprised when I first opened the app. It took me straight to the VPN connect screen. No setup or registration was required. And yes, other apps may offer the same but Seed4.me seems different, perhaps because there are no annoying adverts that pop up everywhere. The app works without registration for seven days while your trial is active. If you decide to create an account later on, you can use that same VPN account for all your devices on Android, iPhone/iPad, Amazon Kindle and Desktop. Furthermore, the design is fairly aesthetic and simple to navigate.
Other than the ability to select your VPN location, there isn’t much settings-wise. You can only white list Wi-Fi networks as trusted, meaning that the VPN won’t activate once you connect to Wi-Fi. It’s really just what you will expect from a VPN app.
Seed4.me is simple to use. This is mainly due to the fact that the user interface is clean and straightforward. I say this first because it really stands out to me. There is literally one panel that you work with.
It’s super easy to connect. You just click the connect button, and it silently lurks in the background,leaving you free from disruptions. Unfortunately, the lower network speeds that we experienced were a reminder that we were actively using a VPN. Most of the time it was fairly fast, but occasionally you’ll get a hitch along the way. I suppose this is inevitable and that all VPN’s experience this, to be fair.
There are a reasonable amount of locations to choose from. Twelve, actually. It may not be the most available out of all VPN’s, but you should be absolutely fine. At least, if you live in or near the US, UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, Russia, Netherlands, Ukraine, Spain, Germany, France, Italy or Canada. If there’s none for your country, you simply just pick the nearest one and all should be good.
Now’s also a good time to mention the price plans. For a very limited time only, Seed4.me comes with six months absolutely free, for a day after publication of this review. The usual price would be $20 for that period, with a seven day trial period. You can use Seed4.me on Android, iOS and PC.
How does it compare to the competition?
Quite well, I’d say. There are more professional VPN’s out there, but Seed4.me is suitable for virtually anyone, especially if you’re looking for a no-nonsense quick fix.
- Clean, crisp interface
Easy to use and setup
Decent range of locations available
- A bit slow at times
Seed4.me is a great, easy to use VPN. Definitely one of the better ones available on the market, it will have no trouble serving your needs. We particularly liked the clean interface and minimal disruptions. This is a great app for anyone seeking a good, solid VPN.
