BrightVPN aims to disrupt the traditional VPN market by offering the same features as paid, subscription-based VPNs while remaining 100 percent free to its users.
Also, unlike traditional VPN services, no email or account is needed to use BrightVPN which means its users retain complete anonymity.
In addition to being completely free to use, BrightVPN requires zero technical skills and its VPN client can be downloaded, installed and used to further protect your privacy online in just 40 seconds.
The new VPN service stays true to Bright Data's mission to make the web more transparent to all by enabling users to reach any website, in any country while avoiding both regional and other reasons for site blockages. BrightVPN is powered by the company's extensive infrastructure which is currently used by more than 10,000 customers including several Fortune 500 firms.
By installing and using Bright Data's VPN, users become part of a larger crowdsourcing network that allows researchers and companies to easily access public web data for multiple purposes. However, as part of the company's commitment to transparency, BrightVPN allows users to see and control which sites are accessed by Bright Data with settings that allow them to control when they allow their IP address to be used and even grant or deny access to specific sites.
Users looking for an alternative to costly premium VPNs or less reputable free VPN services, can download BrightVPN here to remain anonymous online and protect their IP address from being tracked for commercial reasons.
The company added that its free HolaVPN offering, which has millions of users around the world, will continue to serve its millions of users who enjoy a free premium experience, unlocking online content no matter where they are based in the world.
"HolaVPN's mission also remains the same, to provide web transparency to all," the company told TechRadar Pro, highlighting the recent launch of a new browser.
"BrightVPN is our newest VPN-based product that is configured to maximize users' privacy. Both products serve different needs in what is an increasingly demanding market for these services."
