Supernet is a free and easy-to-use privacy solution. Launched in mid-2015, the service claims to unlock the whole internet with just one click. This review will focus on what Supernet has to offer and whether or not it makes sense to use the service.

Server Locations & Site Access – Supernet has deployed its servers in two of the most important VPN markets – United States and United Kingdom. By switching to a British or American IP through the service, expats and frequent fliers can quickly unlock their favorite On-Demand streaming services like Netflix, ABC Player, Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer, Eurosport, CBS, USA Network, Vudu, Sky Go, 4OD, HBO Now, Pandora, Amazon Prime, Xfinity, iTV Player, HBO Go, STV, NBC, Hulu, Demand 5, TNT, MTV, FOX, UK TV, CWTV, Vevo, MLB and NHL from any corner of the world. In addition, the service makes is easy to bypass local firewalls and censorship and access any website from any country. After connecting to the service, you would be able to access Facebook, Skype, Twitter, Viber, Gmail, YouTube and GTalk even if these services have been blocked by your school or workplace administrator or even your ISP (as is commonplace in China, Middle East and Latin America).

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – Although Supernet is a free service, the provider doesn’t impose any kind of speed or bandwidth restrictions upon its subscribers. The company claims that it has sufficient capacity to handle average non-commercial usage. However, you may experience slowdowns or buffering during peak hours.

Privacy Settings – Supernet relies on bank grade encryption protocols to protect your data and privacy on the internet. The service can be used to escape unwanted surveillance as well as to protect unprotected Wi-Fi sessions (especially at places like malls, coffee shops, libraries, public parks) from hackers. Since the service scrambles your data and tunnels it via a secure tunnel, not even your ISP would be able to make out what you are doing on the internet.

Supernet does not collect browsing information from the users. However, the company does record IP address, timestamp and bandwidth usage details and reserves the right to share this information with the governmental authorities if any kind of abuse is involved. Although the provider doesn’t share user data with marketing companies, it shows ads to the users to recover its expenses.

Supported Operating Systems – Supernet is current available as an app for Android and as an extension for Firefox and Chrome browsers. The company is working on releasing apps for MS Windows, Mac OS, iPhones and iPads so it would be soon possible to protect all types of online sessions regardless of device/OS. The app/extensions offered by the provider are pretty easy to install/use so there is no complicated setup or configuration process involved.

Customer Support – The company offers customer support via email and support tickets. Since Supernet is a free service, you cannot expect the kind of support that is available through paid service providers.

Pricing Options – Supernet is a 100% free service that doesn’t require any kind of sign-up or in-app purchases.

Final Verdict – Supernet offers anonymity and privacy to those who cannot afford expensive VPN solutions. While the service is not yet available for all devices/operating systems, it does offer a reliable level of security and privacy. So if you are looking for a free or cheap privacy service, make sure to test drive Supernet. For more information, please visit: www.supernet.io.
