The service OkayFreedom makes access to websites that are regionally restricted accessible to you. So called geographical restrictions or country restrictions are appearing ever more frequently, and hamper the free access to the contents of the internet.
OkayFreedom VPN automatically selects the appropriate server, in order to make the restricted contents visible. You thus have fully automatic "freedom of the media" on the internet. In addition to this OkayFreedom VPN protects your privacy, because your IP-address cannot be determined.
OkayFreedom VPN recognizes whether contents, videos, and entire websites are restricted in your country and automatically directs you to a server over which the contents will be accessible. OkayFreedom VPN uses a network of VPN servers for this and therefore makes not only surfing possible, but is also the safest environment for privacy on the net in general.
Should restricted contents not be recognized, you can manually intervene and select a country under whose "flag" you would like to surf.
This works through browser extensions that OkayFreedom VPN automatically installs. These add-ons are available for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox at the moment. Should you be using another browser, you must manually select a server in another country.
At the moment you can manually choose between Germany, USA, Switzerland, Great Britain, France, Spain, Japan, Singapore, Egypt, Romania and Turkey.
Yes, because OkayFreedom VPN violates no copyright law. As a user of the service you will be neither subject to punishment, nor can you be prosecuted, when you bypass these, according to copyright law, "not effective restrictions" (for example country restrictions with YouTube).
The free of charge 'OkayFreedom Free' account includes 500MB per month. That is enough, for instance, to watch about 15 music videos at a good quality on YouTube. You can raise your monthly data volume to 1GB when you invite your friends to OkayFreedom VPN (100MB each, for up to 5 friends that will install OkayFreedom VPN after receiving your invitation). Alternatively, you can purchase the "Premium Flat" rate for unlimited access: OkayFreedom Premium Flat.
You can find this function when you click under the OkayFreedom VPN icon on "Get more traffic...". You can forward an invitation from there via E-mail, Facebook, or Twitter, and thereby earn yourself Bonus-Traffic. Your invited friends receive exactly as much Bonus-Traffic as you do.
No. Of course you can use OkayFreedom VPN with any manually built connections and also use other programs that require an internet connection. E-Mail connections are the exception here (not with regard to in-browser-webmail).
OkayFreedom VPN directs data traffic per request to safe, encrypted, world wide distributed servers. The data volume that was sent over the server requires a fee after a certain amount.
You can purchase the "Premium Flat" rate for unlimited access here: OkayFreedom Premium Flat.
When you have a premium account, you can only use this on one computer at a time. When you use your premium code on another new computer, your premium traffic contingent on the first computer will be deactivated.
OkayFreedom VPN at the moment only works correctly when it is carried out in an account with administrator privileges or as an administrator. In addition to this out-of-browser email programs do not work while a connection with OkayFreedom VPN exists.
If the ads are bothering you, you can close them by clicking on the "X" symbol next to "Ads by OkayFreedom". Most of our advertising partners also allow you to completely opt-out ot the ads, for example with another button next to the "X" symbol or with a link in the lower right of your browser.
The ads displayed in your browser by free versions of OkayFreedom help finance the VPN servers that are necessary for OkayFreedom to work.
If these ads are bugging you, you can remove them through the following two methods:
1) Uninstall OkayFreedom and remove its browser plugins. After uninstalling it no more ads will be displayed by OkayFreedom.
2) Buy the premium version of OkayFreedom that does not contain any ads and provides you with unlimited data volume. The premium version can be found here.
