VPN.ht Openvpn Client[3] is a personal VPN service made famous for the ads on the free BitTorrent streaming service, Popcorn Time. It supports multiple VPN technologies such as PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, SOCKS5 and OpenVPN.[4] and offers several features:

  • Full compatibility with all OS and devices
  • File Sharing Allowed
  • Zero logs policy
  • Multiple VPN Gateways
  • Unlimited Bandwidth

In 2016, the MPAA successfully obtained an interim injunction, in Canada, against VPN.ht and the popular online torrent streaming service, PopcornTime.io. Further demands asked for both services to be shutdown.[5] VPN.ht claimed their company was not subject to Canadian jurisdiction and users should not be concerned. As of December, 2017 the site is stilling accepting new sign ups.
