KeepSolid, the company behind VPN Unlimited service has just launched two new products, VPN Lite and VPN Turbo for both the Android and iOS platforms. VPN Lite is a free VPN for Android and iOS that doesn’t require you to register for an account and is ad-free. This bodes well for anonymity since not even an email address is required to start using this app.
The foundation of this app actually came from KeepSolid users, who inspired the team to come up with the ultimate in simplicity for an app – something that could run at just the click of a button. No fuss, no muss.
VPN Lite makes use of the IKEv2 protocol which is known for use in mobile environments due to its agility in reconnecting to networks if the connection is lost for any reason. Although KeepSolid has not mentioned what encryption algorithms it is using with VPN Lite, it is likely to be IPSec which is commonly paired with IKEv2. The app supports both AES-128 and AES-256 encryption.
There are two modes in the app, Free and Turbo. Free mode gives users access to one US-based server without any advertisements. Turbo mode offers users access to over 400 VPN servers in more than 70 locations around the world. You can test out the Turbo version with a seven day free trial at any time.
For a mobile-based VPN app, this one seems to tick all the right boxes – anonymity, security, a good range of servers (except for the free version, unfortunately), no registration needed and no advertising!
KeepSolid has been in the cybersecurity business since 2013 and VPN Lite is its third VPN product. The first two launched were VPN Unlimited and Business VPN.
