Unlock access to websites not available in your country.

Hola Better Internet is a popular VPN tool that lets you take advantage of everything the Internet has to offer. It's a VPN plugin that works with Google Chrome and Firefox browsers to help make your Internet use more secure and private, as well as unblock access to popular websites that may not yet be available in your country.

Access Any Website or Online Service You Want

Hola Better Internet provides you with free access to Hola's global network of VPN servers. As they have locations in many different countries, their service allows you to get an IP address from a country of your choice, such as the US, UK, Australia or Canada. This is great if you want to access websites providing streaming video or radio content which are only accessible in certain countries.

Thanks to this simple app, you can fully unblock access to websites such as Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, ITV, Pandora, FOX and many others. This allows you to access everything that the Internet has to offer without any restrictions.

Simple to Install and Use

Hola Better Internet is one of the simplest VPN plugins you can find today. The program takes just a few minutes to install and integrates perfectly with Chrome or Firefox. As it's a browser extension, it doesn't install any additional software directly on your PC, but rather runs directly in the browser. To use the app, all that you have to do is click on the Hola logo which appears at the top right hand side of your browser window.

The controls for using Hola Better Internet are very simple too. You choose the service you want to unblock or the country that you want an IP address from. The software will then connect you to the right server.

Fine VPN Network Quality

The most important part of any VPN software is the quality of the network that is backing it. Hola maintains a very large worldwide network of VPN servers. The service is generally quite reliable for a free app, but isn't completely perfect.

Sometimes, the app would fail to connect to the server, requiring you to try several times. Even when it does connect, there are times when the connection speed is low, which can affect streaming video playback and downloads. The good part is that the browser extension lets you provide feedback if a certain server worked to unblock the website you wanted or not. That way, servers that are having problems are quickly removed, which improves the overall quality of the service.
