Virtual Private Network applications to proxy your traffic on your mobile device!

cellphoneFor those of you who have been following our posts you would know that in the past we talked about the idea of tunneling all of your traffic from your mobile device for security reasons. Immediately that article caused us to receive some emails asking us for more information about how to do this. So we thought it would be a great idea to write up this article. We are going to share some of the best VPN apps for your phone or tablet.

Hotspot shield is one of the most popular proxy applications for your phone. They have it on the google play store as well as on iTunes for Apple mobile devices. They have a free version as well as a paid version. The paid version unlocks some features. They also allow you to connect at faster speeds as well as connect to more server locations around the world.

If you don’t want to pay a monthly fee for a proxy service we have options for you too! In one of our previous articles we talked about how you can setup your own personal OpenVPN server. The OpenVPN Connect app is what you would use to connect to your server. This solutions works great if you already have a fast internet connection at home and a spare PC that can be used as a server.

The final solution we have for you is not exactly a turnkey application. Its more of a specific setup that takes advantage of SSH to tunnel all of your traffic. You can read about it over at How to Geek for yourself. They have a great guide that tells you step by step how to do it. You also learn a bit of Linux in the process so overall its a win win for you.
