Hide my Ass is a really cool service. They’re not expensive, and their VPN is very user friendly. They’ve got a clean design to their site which makes it easy to navigate. One thing I hate about VPN sites like Black Logic and Secure VPN is that it’s hard to find out what’s going on in there. How much is the VPN?
Can I use it on my Mac? Is it compatible with Windows 7? Should I use PPTP or L2TP on my iPhone? There are so many questions for a new user, especially for someone who hasn’t used a VPN before.
One big problem though – they’re blocked.
Ok, not all the time, but a lot of the time. They’ve got the SSL/OpenVPN needed by users in China, but you can’t get to it if the site is blocked. What would I suggest?
I think Hide My Ass is a cool VPN service. If you’re planning on coming to China, get your VPN set up with them before you go. If you’re hear and on the off-chance they’re not blocked for a while, you can check them out. Hide My Ass won’t do you wrong.
