UltraSurf Security Privacy Unblock VPN is a program that conceals your IP address while you're surfing online. While it claims to be a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, it really functions more like a proxy. This works best with Internet Explorer, but it also works with other browsers.

Main Features

UltraSurf is a program that protects you online and keeps your information anonymous. Many people want to keep themselves hidden online. This prevents hackers from reading your data, companies from collecting your information or other entities from spying on you. This program hides your IP address and ensures that all browsing history and cookies are erased as soon as you stop browsing.

This works well over public and private WiFi networks. You only need to configure it once. It will then function properly for all WiFi networks.

Most Browsers

UltraSurf works with most browsers to hide your IP address. It works best with Internet Explorer because you can easily configure the program to erase your browsing history, erase your cookies and so on. While it works best with Internet Explorer, you can use it with many other browsers. You may have to do some manual configurations for it to work.

Proxy

While UltraSurf claims to be a VPN, it really works more like a proxy. This affords you somewhat less protection than a true VPN that bounces your signal off different servers, but it has its advantages. Proxies tend to run faster and have an easier time with public WiFi spots.

Pros

  • Hides your true IP address as you're browsing websites.
  • Works well with both private and public WiFi hotspots.
  • You can use this with most browsers, but it works best with Internet Explorer.

Cons

  • Functions more like a proxy than a VPN.
