VPN Unlimited Available on the Microsoft Store

VPN Unlimited for Windows

If you’re a Windows 10 user, rejoice. One of the more popular VPN services in the market, VPN Unlimited, is now available for you to download on the Microsoft Store.

Just like most other top VPN providers, VPN Unlimited is an excellent solution if you’re looking to protect your online privacy. It will encrypt all your traffic using military-grade 256-bit encryption, making sure no-one who isn’t supposed to see it ever will.

VPN Unlimited is also able to unlock US streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, regardless of where in the world you are, by spoofing your location.

And if you reside in or are traveling to a country in which VPN use is restricted or blocked, VPN Unlimited has you covered too. It supports a state-of-the-art obfuscation feature which masks VPN traffic is regular HTTPS web traffic, making it just about impossible to detect.

With a VPN Unlimited subscription, you’ll be able to access over 70 locations worldwide. In addition to Windows, the client software also runs on every other major platform, including MacOS, iOS, and Android.

The best part? By downloading the VPN Unlimited app from the Microsoft Store, you get a seven-day free trial. If you decide to keep using the servicex beyond that period, pricing comes in at $10/month.

Free Windows VPN

Free VPN for Windows

There is any number of free VPN options you can use for your Windows desktop computers, notebooks, and tables. Windows 10 is, of course, supported, but so are many previous versions of the operating system, including Windows 8 and 7.


Despite other VPN protocols making headway, PPTP is still very commonly used. Its biggest advantage is that it works on nearly every flavor of Windows, be it on your desktop or a tablet.

But, because PPTP makes use of the GRE, it does need an additional TCP port to work. Because so many people forget to allow another port through their firewall, it’s very common to get cryptic connection errors when opting for this VPN protocol.


A more secure option than PPTP, L2TP only uses TCP ports when establishing connections. By far, the biggest advantage of this protocol is that just about every computer system and modern device in the world supports it.


Starting with Windows 7, the Windows operating system fully supports SSTP clients.

Much like secure SSL connections, SSTP uses the standard HTTPS UDP 443 port. It also works with a proxy connection. Because just about every ISP has port 443 open (otherwise HTTPS websites wouldn’t work), SSTP has become a prevalent protocol choice.


Arguably the best option to use for a free Windows VPN, OpenVPN is the well-known open source protocol that is based on SSL.

There are many OpenVPN client options and every operating system, including Linux, supports it. If support isn’t available by default, all you need to do is install a 3rd party client or plugin.

The most commonly used OpenVPN client can be downloaded here.
