Image from store VPN.AC SecureProxy
Description from store SecureProxy browser extension for Chrome provides with the ability to surf the web securely and privately without connecting to a "classic" VPN. It works like a browser proxy and all browsing traffic is encrypted through a secure tunnel. Stealth against Firewall/DPI: when inspected using DPI technologies, the connections using the SecureProxy don't trigger alerts like a classic VPN would usually do. There is no need to tunnel all your PC traffic through the VPN: you can have the browser tunneling the traffic through our servers and all other traffic sent via your regular ISP connection. NOTE: You need an active VPN account from https://vpn.ac to connect using this extension. What's new: - v2.1.2: minor template improvements Previous updates: - v2.1.0: new design implemented; multiple improvements and fixes - v2.0.17: work-around for Chrome newly introduced bug resulting in no connection when starting browser; added "China Optimized" category (enable it in Preferences) - v2.0.13: bug fixes related to local storage of preferences. - v2.0.11: new design, news tab, help tab, bug fixes. New version requires Privacy permissions due to a change of the WebRTC blocking function. - v1.8.0: added country flags, changed icons. - v1.7.2: added ability to exclude websites or entire TLDs from using the SecureProxy connection to access them.

  • (2022-08-17) Mark Dingwall: Simple, easy and amazingly handy when you just want a VPN-like connection in your browser and not the rest of your machine.
  • (2022-06-07) Eddy Moore: Good
  • (2022-04-19) Doc Vivaldi: 👎 It is NOT a FREE extension. You must pay if you want to test it. Although they claim it is "7 days Money Back Guarantee. Full refund, risk free" you still have to pay before testing it.

  • (2021-04-15) Hossein Mousavi: when i click on connect button, nothing happens. This occurs occasionally and I have to use the extension since they do not have a stable version of application for Linux which crashes all the time. might migrate to another VPN server after my subscription ends.

  • (2018-01-10) Have been a satisified user for a couple of years now. Latest update has ruined it. Constantly will not connect to the local Aussie servers. Why fix it when it's not broken. Now, it's well and truly broken.

  • (2017-04-16) I am in china and have had sporadic at best luck with vpns. I just downloaded VPN.AC secure proxy and I can't get over the speed and ease of this extension.I hope its initial performance is a sign of finally having quality internet access. To use it you do need to sign up with VPN.AC but it appears to be well worth it.

  • (2019-04-20, v:2.0.17) Anton Berko: Bad connectivity
    Hi, I am in China, connecting to China-optimized locations successfully but it often barely works (LA-5CN2, HK, JP) for streaming video like youtube in 360p. How can I improve my experience? Thanks.
  • (2018-09-18, v:2.0.17) Cory Crossman: Recently, It doesn't connect from China
    Hi, Vpn.ac team, I am in China and I have been using the chrome extension for more than 4 months with no problem at all, but recently, I think around late August 2018 until now, there have been no successful connection made from the chrome extension. I have checked my ID, it still not expired and I am also use the Mac software to make the connection and mostly with no problem, but I prefer to use the Chrome Extension as it is easier and quicker to connect, so it will be helpful if you can fix the extension. Thanks.
  • (2018-01-24, v:2.0.13) Peter Pavey: Connection problem
    Recently each time I open chrome I'm not connected to VPN.ac I manually need to make the connection its annoying as in the pass this would never happen.
  • (2017-09-25, v:2.0.13) Tab problem
    can only access connect tab all others un clickable
  • (2017-09-23, v:2.0.11) Martin Meissner: Selected Location
    Reverts all time to default and the default is not changeable!
  • (2017-09-12, v:1.8.0) Tia Yuhe Su: Connected but nothing
    I don't have much prob connecting, but after it says "connected" I am not able to use any features. I can't use g or youtube on my chrome despite that I am "connected". The software works fine.
  • (2017-09-06, v:1.8.0) Michael Barrett: Update UI design
    Bring it in line with the other platforms client interfaces
  • (2016-11-30, v:1.8.0) Chris Michael England: Doesn't allow access to certain sites.
    I keep getting an error code from my Yahoo, saying my connection is "noy private", so it blocks me from going further. The other is my Netflix account, which will not load the movie I select and it says it is due to a "connection issue with my Chrome extensions." Everything points to the VPN as the problem.
  • (2016-11-03, v:1.8.0) only two servers
    I am in china and are only able to get two servers in the list. US vest coast and East coast. And this have been difficult to connect. It seems you blame this on ISP but that does not change that it does not work as intended. And for that reasons there is 0 point in have this subscription.
  • (2016-09-25, v:1.8.0) Paul Mrocka: will not connect
    Have a new Mac Pro book will not connect at all
