Free, Instant VPN Access With Rabb.it

When online, I try to find the most simple and cheap solutions to solve my problems. Sometimes, when I don’t want to expose my identity through the internet or just need to access a website which isn’t available in my country, I use VPN’s. There are many websites that provide VPN Access for free, with downloadable software or online. Today I am going to show you an online VPN. You don’t need any special software to use it, just a good browser!

rabb.it

After searching the web about the options I had for VPN, I came across the following website: www.rabb.it (Rabbit). The main purpose of this website is to offer free chat and video services between people. You can create a chat room (max 10 people) and video chat just like Skype and Hangouts. You can also stream Netflix or any other content you want and discuss it with your co-workers or friends. The content gets mirrored to their screens in real time!

The Way it Works as a VPN

You can also use this website as a VPN. The nature of this web-application allows you to browse the web with a different IP address. Let me explain this a little bit. Once you setup rabb.it, a Google Chrome window opens on their Linux-based servers. It is like connecting to an external computer where you can browse the internet normally. The best thing is that the service is completely free and you do not need to register if you don’t want to.

Step By Step Process

Once you access rabb.it you have to press the Chat Now button. On this page you have to input a name and press enter. (It is needed if you are creating a group chat room).

Select Messages only if you are going to use rabb.it as a VPN otherwise there are video and only mic options.

On the next page you have to press the PC icon at the bottom of the page. In the window that opens,  enter your desired link and press “go.”

Below you can see it displayed in a Google Chrome window. You can access any website you want privately with rabb.it’s IP. As you can see, I was curious to see what speed I was getting, so I did a speedtest. The speed is blazing fast because you are actually using a server to browse the web.

Keep in mind that if you are sharing a streaming service with friends, that it may be against the terms of use from some services to share the video with someone who isn’t paying for a subscription.
