VPN-Gate does have drawbacks for their users by collecting logs and there’s also no real guarantee that this service will continue as it’s solely relying on volunteers for its upkeep. However, if you’re simply in need of a tool to unblock specific (perhaps not too private) websites or services then...

As a freemium provider, VPN Gate is a suitable choice for those who wish to unblock geo-restricted sites and services. But, if top-grade privacy, robust online security and reliable data protection is that you’re looking for then choose a full-fledge premium VPN service.

VPN-Gate does have drawbacks for their users by collecting logs and there’s also no real guarantee that this service will continue as it’s solely relying on volunteers for its upkeep. However, if you’re simply in need of a tool to unblock specific (perhaps not too private) websites or services then the abundance of server choices and varying protocols make VPN-Gate a worthy option.

It's unblocker rather than a full-fledge VPN service

As a freemium provider, VPN Gate is a suitable choice for those who wish to unblock geo-restricted sites and services. But, if top-grade privacy, robust online security and reliable data protection is that you’re looking for then choose a full-fledge premium VPN service.
