Want to browse the web anonymously without worrying about being monitored or tracked? Try UltraSurf, a free circumvention solution that allows users to access blocked websites using a proxy server. It is often used by people in China to climb over the Great Firewall and get access to web pages censored by the Government.

This Windows Client protects your privacy online by masking your real IP address behind a different one, removing browsing history, cached data, cookies, and more. The program ensures your security when you connect to a public Wi-Fi hot spot at airports, hotels, or cafes.

Known issues

Due to its ability to bypass firewalls, UltraSurf may alert some antiviruses. Even though the utility is well known for its high speed, the servers the software provides are occasionally overloaded and as a result the users experience slow speeds and crashes.

Ultrasurf vs. VPN tools

Additionally, Ultrasurf cannot be used as a substitute for a VPN tool since it doesn’t encrypt the entire connection. For a full-featured VPN solution, consider using ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or Norton Secure VPN. If you’re looking for similar tools that provide an anonymous connection, select Tor, Hotspot Shield, or Psiphon.

To sum it up

On the whole, UltraSurf will help you get around geoblocking and hide your identity and location. Though UltraSurf does have a number of drawbacks, this Windows Client still comes for free, requires no installation, and provides quite fast and secure servers.
