Free VPN allows you to change your virtual location

Free VPN, or Free Virtual Private Network, is a free Chrome Extension that helps you mask your true IP address and location. This makes it more difficult for sites to track where you are searching from, and grants you access to sites you may not otherwise be able to see.

When you open Free VPN, you see the very simple user interface.

  • You can easily turn on the VPN with the click of a button.
  • Your current IP address is prominently displayed.
  • From a simple drop-down menu, you are able to select a new location and IP address for your VPN.

The tool really is that simple; there are no complicated options or requirements.

While this tool may not seem directly relevant to recruiting, it can prove to be very useful. For example, LinkedIn and a variety of other sites use your IP address. Using a VPN on these sites may allow you to access the information you would normally not be able to. Additionally, if you happen upon a site that you are not given access to based on your location, all you need to do is figure out which locations will work with the site, change your VPN, and you’re good to go.

Free VPN is not only incredibly useful but also incredibly fast. It’s a brainer to add to your recruiting tool belt and may come in handy more often than you think. ~ Noel Cocca
