    What is FrootVPN?
    FrootVPN is a VPN tunneling service which creates a secure and anonymous connection to the internet.

    Is FrootVPN free to use?
    Yes it is completely free to use FrootVPN. No hidden charges.

    How are you able to finance this if it is for free?
    The whole idea behind FrootVPN is to provide a free simple VPN service that give every internet user on the planet the right to it's privacy online. Ofcourse the maintenance and bandwidth isn't free for these kind of services. But we had some resources over from other project and were able to launch FrootVPN. We will run this service for free as long as we can. But we will eventually need to bring money in to be able to pay our bills.

    Where are your servers located?
    Our servers are located in Sweden and we operate under Swedish law which offers high internet privacy.

    Do you have any bandwidth limitation?
    There is no bandwidth limitation set on our VPN users. Our servers are connected to multiple 10Gbit/s backbone providing ultra high speed connections around the globe.

    What Operating systems and Devices does FrootVPN support?
    FrootVPN works on all Windows and Unix/Linux systems, Iphone, Ipad and Android devices. You can also get it to work on your home router as long as it has VPN support.

    Do you keep logs?
    We don't keep any logs of any kind. All we ask from you is your email address and username. No other information is kept on our servers.
    The VPN user is assigned a new dynamic IP every time he connects to FrootVPN. There is even no time stamp or logs of which IP-address you got assigned.

    Do you support IPv6?
    Yes, we have IPv6 support. Currently it is only available when using OpenVPN but we will support it on other protocol in the future too.

    Do I need to configure my router in order to get FrootVPN to work?
    It's possible that your router doesn't support or isn't configured for PPTP VPN Passthrough. To test this, try connecting to the Internet without the router and see if it works. In other words, plug your computer directly into your modem device bypassing the router.

    Guides to configure it under any of the supported platforms

    No idea, not heard of this one until it was posted. It's certainly "real" though. ;)

    TorrentFreak informed about it a while back.
    This service was promoted by The Pirate Bay. A bunch of registrations made them add more servers to its infrastructure. They will keep it free for some time. The service is new, so there's no reliable info that assures what they say is true or is not. That lets us with mixed opinions:

    FROOTVPN is a huge scam. I paid in bitcoin to preserve my anonymity and their server timed out before the payment arrived. Since then they’ve came up with bogus answers as to why my service is not activated.

    FROOTVPN is a SCAM. These sleaze bags stole $10 and gave no service.

    Boycott FROOTVPN.
