Hola is the kind of tool you instantly want to share with those you know upon discovery, but then you think “it’s so good, everyone must already know about it”. I’ll take the plunge.
Probably more useful to those of you who are outside the US like me or those who travel a lot, Hola is a free, light browser plugin that acts as a VPN. Once installed, you simply click the smiling fireball and choose where you want to access a website “from”. Most importantly: It works like a charm.
Available on mobile, too. Use in accordance to the law and restrictions in your country.
Update on October 19, 2017: Since this was published, Hola has been criticized for sharing its users’ bandwidth and being involved with some shady stuff. I no longer use it, and suggest you don’t either.Share:
