6 Awesome VTunnel Alternatives For Fast And Secure Browsing

VTunnelVtunnel.com is one of the most popular and successful proxy sites for browsing the web anonymously.

It is ideal for visiting sites you aren’t sure whether to trust, and for many other purposes such as avoiding location-based content filters.

Some sites also have added features, like disposable email addresses to safely receive messages from untrusted sites.

Vtunnel may be one of the best-known and most successful proxy sites, but it is far from the only one available. Here are six alternative sites that allow you to browse the web securely without slowing things down:

Here Are The 6 Alternatives You Will Love

1. Anonymouse.org

Anonymouse is one of the oldest and most well-established proxy sites on the web. They have been active since 1997, and are trusted by a large number of browsers. As well as secure surfing, Anonymouse offers the option to send anonymous emails, which can also be delayed for up to twelve hours after sending for extra privacy. They also offer a toolbar for some web browsers, so you don’t have to visit the website to use their tools.

2. HideMyAss.com

HideMyAss.com has an extensive toolset for proxy browsing. As well as offering basic anonymous web surfing, there is the option to receive emails on a disposable account along with file and image hosting. There is also the option to use servers in different countries to access content that is restricted to certain countries, such as BBC iPlayer or Hulu.

3. Proxify.com

Proxify provides services through either downloadable software or simple, browser-based surfing. It is geared very much towards straightforward anonymous browsing, but it offers a range of added tools that can enhance the experience. It can remove ads, block cookies and prevent scripts from running, all of which help to keep your identity private as well as enhancing your safety on sites you don’t trust.

4. VTunnelBrowser.com

VTunnelBrowser.com is a very simple, minimalist service. It just offers proxy-based browsing and content unblocking with very few added features. However, it is very secure (largely thanks to the inclusion of SSL) and offers a very fast experience. It will allow you to unblock watching Youtube videos with no noticeable slowdown, making it a perfect option for those who want free, easy secure browsing that won’t take a toll on their internet speed.

5. XRoxy.com

XRoxy.com includes an extensive list of proxies, which is regularly updated. The vast majority of proxies on the list are free, and they are located all over the world making it ideal for accessing location-restricted content. The list can be easily filtered to find your desired features, such as SSL security. Registration is free, though there is also a paid subscription option that gives access to some added features.

6. The-Cloak.com

The Cloak is a simple, fast and very secure free website. It offers few added features, but it is very good at what it does. It allows you to anonymously and securely browse the web, and doesn’t slow down media downloads. It also allows cookies to be stored remotely with them, rather than on your computer, and easily deleted.

    For all practical purposes, HideMyAss has helped me out a lot. I do a lot of online work and don’t really need all of the hassle of being blocked here or slowed down there by some security issues. HMA has worked for me and it’s the best around.

  2. jon terns says

    I’m going to give VTunnel a try and see if it’s as good as everyone says it is. I heard it’s one of the easiest to use and that will work out well for a newbie like me.

    • Uncle Tom says

      I still use Tor fully, and VTunnel looks much easier. I wish I could see a really thorough review and comparison for how safe either is, and how capable they are for completing different internet based tasks.

  3. val yenko says

    Hands down, proxify is the best one out there, it’s the only one I use and I have tried all of them. Good post Josh, you have a very good site with a lot of really helpful information!

  4. Julian says

    When you first try a proxy website, be sure to read through the terms of service of that particular proxy. Proxies usually also have a privacy policy, which is also to be carefully read. If you doubt the integrity of the proxy site, never use the site. Only use proxies which are trusted by a lot of people, and have a proper privacy policy.

  5. Steven says

    I have been using proxy servers for around a year now. Most of them are easy to install, use, and fast (most of the times, at times it is a bit slow though). Most are usually also backed up with a strong support. Overall I have found them to be good and serve my needs.

  6. Charlie says

    Proxy’s work quite well, and usually fast enough for Hulu and the like. Sometimes it falls over and I have to select a different server but this is infrequent and generally it works fairly smoothly. I have recommended it to others many times.

  7. Alex says

    It’s very easy to use but slows down my system slightly. I thoroughly enjoy the anonymity when browsing the internet. I have notice that some websites delay in responding when I use HMA but that’s OK because ‘where one won’t another one will’ = a fair trade-off. I would definitely recommend this software to all my friends.

    • Ally says

      I’ve noticed a lot of proxy sites are slow. I’m not really bothered by it, I figure it’s just a small price to pay for anonymity. But it is kind of annoying when looking at very intense sites, some seem to take forever to load!

  8. George says

    A while back, my college installed Websense on the network whiched blocked us from gaining access to many websites. They even refused to unblock a website where I work as a graphic designer at! While most of my peers take advantage of Proxify’s free use, I signed up and I haven’t regretted it once. Proxify allows users to easily and securely browse the internet where it has been limited by higher ups.

    • Bruce Landry says

      That is so annoying. That happened to me while I was working on location the other day, trying to put in some extra work on break by working on another company’s project. The site was blocked! It wan’t even a questionable site at all, I wonder why it was snagged by their system.

  9. Gillian says

    Vtunnel is a fantastic service, but I kind of prefer the-cloak.com. Not sure why to be exact, but I’ve had an easier time with it in the past and so that could be why I favor it, who knows. Anyways the rest are also quite good, and work fantastically good.

  10. HaroldP says

    All great alternatives I must agree. I don’t use proxies that much, well only when I want to watch a music video that’s only been shared over in a different country. I’ve also used it for some work I’ve done in the past, to make sure no one was trying to steal my work. Reasons like that.

  11. Starbird Kate says

    HideMyAss and Anonymouse are the two proxies I use most often. I find they’re fast and reliable and always seem to get the job done when I need to access a blocked site or do some anonymous browsing. I’ll remember some of the others you’ve listed, though! Who knows when I might find myself in need of a backup.

  12. Mitcher says

    I generally use proxies to view region locked content so I rarely require anything too fancy. However, it is nice to have a good strong connection if you’re trying to watch videos or play any sort of game.

    Now I just have to figure out which ones my office hasn’t blocked…

  13. Dearheart says

    My old roommate introduced me to the glory of proxies after our college blocked pretty much everything worth browsing. I’ve been using Vtunnel and HideMyAss mostly, but I have a few others I like to keep on standby in case my defaults don’t work.

    I take such pleasure in getting around stupid blocks… Does that make me a bad person?

    • Julianna says

      Hahaha, I went to undergrad back in the early 200′s when the internet was pretty much beyond most people. Nothing was blocked, it was like the wild west out there. I can’t even imagine how much less awesome my life would have been if my college blocked questionable material.

  14. squeek says

    VtunnelBrowser is probably the best proxy site in my opinion because it’s so streamlined. I hate having my proxy bogged down by tons of unnecessary features that the majority of users don’t use anyway.

    I’d rather have great performance and topnotch security than a billion features that only result in slow service. There’s nothing wrong with minimalism if it works!

  15. Danny Olman says

    XRoxy is my favorite out of the whole bunch. There was some article I saw recently that was about a free web browser that would be extremely safe to browse on, and no one can bug you on it. If I find it I’ll reply to my comment and share it, it sounds like it could be very useful.

  16. Feldman says

    I used HideMyAss in the past, worked good, but I never really liked how it worked. I even paid for the better edition but I never truly liked it that much. I saw this article just now and I am really interested in checking some of these others out. I’ve used HideMyAss a lot so anything that’s highly different to it would be fantastic. ;)

  17. WalterJB says

    Tectivoo, you guys rock. I found this site by luck recently and am very happy to have found it. You guys have shown me some awesome tech news and tech tools that I’ve been enjoying for sometime now. As for programs like vtunnel. Vtunnel is fantastic, but I think the real deal is proxify, I use it quite often and it’s quite decent.

  18. Rayanne says

    I definitely need the temporary emails, so many sites that look sketchy require user logins, and I don’t want to give out any of my real email addresses.
