    I need a VPN just for this weekend, its to access something i pay for back in the UK but sods law im not back from overseas.

    So i need a free trial or free VPN, i tried CyberGhost 6 but for whatever reason it refuses to run on my W10 Lappy, even spent an hour running through the troubleshooting guide.

    Cheers in advance, it will mean my wife doesn't have to sit in front of the TV this weekend pointing her phone at the screen at 0600 ;)

    I like VPN unlimited. It got a 7 day trial.
    One of the few that have a lifetime subscription for a reasonable price and good speed (enough for me, get 50 mbit+). you can have 5 clients at once. (even got a few torrent allowed servers around the world)

    I will never prefer you for the free VPN because free VPN only can access you to the unblock sites but it will never secure your online activities and privacy. I will only refer you to use paid VPN which can access you restriction sites anonymously, secure your online privacy and also don't compromise your internet speed. Here you will get the guidance about the best VPN service. I will recommend you to use ExpressVPN which can give you 30 days money back guaranty.

    I use IPVanish and it works well enough. The only issues are that it's not the cheapest, and download speed are a good bit slower. Not that it's slow, just in comparison to when it's disabled.

    I would check first that what you want to access is ok with a VPN being used, as Netflix doesn't work with IPVanish.

    I might also have a switching to ExpressVPN, think i only picked IPVanish due the amount of money they had spend on ads on Kodi sites...

    Go for Pure VPN. I have been using this for quite a while and it is not troubling me with anything.

    ProtonVPN is way too slow (for media streaming anyway). NordVPN is OK, but it only allows up to 6 devices. If you have more than 6 devices, NordVPN honors its limitations much better than it honors its reliability...

    It is enough for such a task just to use the test version of any paid VPN. If such a need remains, then you will already know about other chrome extension vpn.

    I like torguard, been reliable for me so far. I cancelled for awhile and they offered a big discount, so have been using them since.
