Freedome - FSecure VPN for Android
A nice VPN from a brand you should know.
Blocks harmful sites
Supports split VPN
Works for wifi or cell service internet
The User looks pretty and once configured is sort of easy to use. Their central button to turn the VPN on and off is a little tricky to hit in the right place to turn it on and off. It's a little tricky also to get to the other feature options but you don't need to do it very often.
On Verizon's cell data
Running without VPN I got 20-23 Mb/sec down and 11.5-16.1 up
Running with VPN I got 20-26 Mb/sec down and 3.35-4.85 up
The speed on the VPN wasn't really affected on the download speed but the upload speed was seemingly significantly impacted but still pretty reasonable for a VPN.
Overall usage seems fast and responsive. The ability to split the VPN by app is a great feature offered by only a few of the VPN's I've tried.
$29.99 for 1 year of service. That's not a bad deal for service this good.
The F-Secure VPN is a great VPN for android, that is fast and reliable from a fairly well known security company. The only wish was their UI were a bit more user friendly, but it works good enough once you get used to it.
