Spotflux Editor's Review

Browsing the internet is a common activity among PC users nowadays and it is required for work and personal purposes almost on a daily basis. However, with malware invasion on rise and hackers on prowl, web browsing and download safety has become important. You can use a suitable internet security or antivirus suite to safeguard your online browsing and transaction experiences for sure. However, if you want an additional level of security for such tasks, consider using a VPN service. You need not be connected to a corporate network for this as there are some actable free personal VPN apps and services out there. One such contender is Spotflux.

Spotflux offer top notch encryption features to safeguard and hide your PC’s default IP address. It is available both in free and a paid premium version. The free ad-supported edition offers premium features for 3 days and runs on PCs with Windows 7 and later editions. The installation is simple and once it is complete, Spotflux launches connecting the PC to its servers. There is no need to configure anything.

The UI of Spotflux is minimal and user friendly. There is a solo button- to enable or disable the service. A field displays status of the service. As it gets connected to servers, the app gets automatically minimized to system tray. You can surely invoke the app by right clicking on system tray icon. The icon is green when service is running.

When you activate Spotflux, it connects the PC to a VPN to camouflage your computer’s real IP address. The trade off is speed of internet access in some situations. It actually helps when you want to browse region-specific sites, overriding web access restrictions imposed by your country. Apart from that, using the service ensures your data remains inaccessible from others online.

Spotflux will be embraced by users who are paranoid about their data privacy. Even on the public access Wifi hotspots the connection remains encrypted at all times. As of now, the app offers access to Servers in the USA. It blocks malware containing websites by default, which is commendable. It also checks if a website deploys cookies or methods to track your whereabouts online.

The nice thing about Spotflux is that it does not cause web access speed slowdown in most instances. You can stream video or view content rich websites when using its service at most locations. It performs on par with other popular VPN service providers, as it is.

Positive Points:
•    Minimal UI, almost zero configurations.
•    Malicious site blocking.
•    No web access speed throttling.
•    Good data encryption.

Negative Points:
•    Connects to US based servers only.
•    Free versions shows ads.

Conclusion:
Spotflux is ideal for those users who want an additional layer of protection for online activities without taxing their wallet. It is really simple to use. There is no configuration that you need to do for availing the VPN service. The free version displays ads but the functionality is good. There is no speed throttling involved as well. Your data remains encrypted when you use the service, both over wired and wireless networks. Additionally, the service also safeguards you from websites with malware content, which is a boon. Overall, it offers very good performance and you can try the premium version for additional features.

Rating: 3/5
