ItsHidden Offers FREE VPN Service!

Anonymize your BitTorrent downloads and Internet traffic now.

BitTorrent users face a gradually escalating game of cat and mouse as anti-piracy companies and ISPs institute ever increasing methods of seeking out and preventing copyright infringement these days.

Just yesterday I mentioned how UK ISP Karoo, after disconnecting accused BitTorrent users after just a single accusation, still takes the remarkable steps of instituting a “three-strikes” plan of its own without a govt mandate.

So its welcome news to learn that ItsHidden is now offering a FREE (yes FREE) VPN service for those interested in keeping their Internet traffic and BitTorrent downloads anonymous.

Features include:

  • Fast and reliable with over 4 Gigabits of Dedicated Bandwidth
  • Instant access
  • Total Privacy, no records of your surfing are kept by us
  • No Software is needed
  • 128 Bit Secure Connection to ensure privacy over all network

“At ItsHidden we create a connection called a VPN,” reads the site. “This is a secure connection that encrypts all your information and is not readable by anyone else so wherever you are your privacy is always maintained!  There is no software required and ItsHidden works on all Platforms including Windows, Mac, Linux, IPhone etc..”

How it works is when you connect to ItsHidden they create a ‘Tunnel’ between you and them. All of the data in this ‘Tunnel’ is then encrypted to 128 Bits so only you and ItsHidden know the contents of what is being sent.

Unlike other VPN services like the Pirate Bay’s IPREDator, which costs about $7 bucks a month, ItsHidden will always have a free service option. However, it will eventually roll out a paid service for about $5 bucks a month that will offer other features like port forwarding for example.

““It has been created to put some rights back in the favor of the user and that includes us,” David of ItsHidden told to TorrentFreak. “There are so many bodies, mostly unelected that seem to have full access to the most intimate of online details with little or no justification and more importantly, no evidence.”

As you can see below ItsHidden’s servers are currently located in the Netherlands, but it plans to spread them out once it leaves BETA.

Try it out for yourself, it only takes a few minutes to configure.

Stay tuned.

If you know how to install OpenVPN, you can always try anonet. Once you're on anonet, you can then use one of srn's proxies, ryuk's proxy, or any other one that you can find. Since the proxy's operator only knows your AnoNet IP and not your real IP, he cannot give your real IP to his government even if he fully cooperates with their investigation. If you want to join anonet, here is the urls: http://www.anonet.org/ http://www.anonet2.org/ (this the one I use)

@ys: It seems to be once per day. It is either a new policy (that they did not care to mention in the front page) or because all their staff are watching the World Cup to keep the infrastructure up. I too am looking for an alternative, is there anything like itshidden that you don't need to install some custom software?

Ya. free account will be kicked from system the every 20 minutes. and i found that it is very hard to connect back in couple hours after that. So, free user is very limited . and have very bad experience now. Maybe they should let people know how long should free user wait between 2 dial-up.

From my experience, ItsHidden doesn't like free users. First, they don't like answering questions from free users and then they add a note saying that there is no support for them. Then they limit speed to 500 kpbs, then to 1 Mbps. NOW, they disconnect free accounts every 20 minutes. If their intention is to discourage free accounts but make them pay for paid accounts, it is unlikely they will succeed as once bitten, twice shy. I am not using their service any more.

Just spent (wasted) a couple of hours on ItsHidden - never seen a more AMATEUR site -actually being built and de-bugged at the same time as being sold to the market/us - i tried to register for a free try-out, and had to negotiate so many glitches in what should bea simple process - just doesn't feel 'ALL THERE' - and the privacy issue is a rel worry as pointrd out above. Must be many more better.

what would stop an riaa enforcer from creating this proxy server and busting the participants?

Too bad that ACEVPN has a 50GB per month restriction - if you are using cloud computing to back up your files you will easily go over that limit - does anyone know of a truly unlimited VPN?

4Gbps dedicated bandwith, slow and routing issues! I agree with Jake123. You are probably better off with www.acevpn.com. They allow access to multiple servers and they are very fast and price is about the same $5 per month.

So far so good. Seems above board, although slow, slow. But...Privacy dear friends...

Finally managed to authenticate, can't figure out how to route it properly. Meh, I'll wait until someone writes a guide that doesn't require gnome's networkmanager.

Section 5 of their TOS: "You grant to us a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate and distribute your user content in any existing or future media. You also grant to us the right to sub-license these rights, and the right to bring an action for infringement of these rights. Your user content must not be illegal or unlawful, must not infringe any third party's legal rights, and must not be capable of giving rise to legal action whether against you or us or a third party (in each case under any applicable law). " So, basically, they say they don't store or keep record of anything, yet they add this exclusion in here that says they can use any content that you download or upload through their service for whatever they want. The second paragraph looks like an anti-p2p paragraph, or anti-hacker, in other words, anti-privacy. Judging by this statement, they won't protect you if the RIAA sues them for your IP. Very reassuring. Of course there would have to be a catch, that is business. Would you trust them with all your private information Jared?

Yes I would. I mean all VPN services have to say you cant use for illegal purposes otherwise they could be sued themselves. They circumvent the need for data caution by emphasizing "Total Privacy, no records of your surfing are kept by us." Its all a matter of necessity and options. If you only use private tracker sites and dont have an ISP that throttles BitTorrent then you really dont need a VPN service. But, if you answer no to either question then it may be just what you need.

I see your point, but I think iPredator would be a safer alternative than this company, or even PRQ's VPN service. ThePirateBay may be a lot of things, but I don't think they'd ever give up user information. My thought are that if the RIAA actually wanted your IP, or lets say even worse, the government, this company won't hesitate to work with either organization. And you repeated what they say about how they keep no records etc. but then why do they need an exclusion saying that they have the right to use all your traffic content (photos, writings whatever) however, whichever way they want? That makes me uncomfortable.
