All this information will be provided by the VPN service provider.

Some of you might be wondering that it won’t work but for that reason, we will teach you how to test your free VPN as well.

Testing your IP

Finding your IP address is a very easy task.

If you search the term what’s my IP in google, google will show you the IP address. Most of the ISP provides real IP during the installing and you can get that details in the line connection form. Check your current IP address with the real IP. If the IP address is different chances very high that the VPN is working perfectly. But we will do another test which is based on geographical position.

Find your device location on the internet and see if it is using the current location or the server location. If you find the device location the same as the server location, you have nothing to worry about.

Testing your VPN

Installing the VPN might be easy but you are not done yet. You need to connect to the VPN and test your internet connection. First of all play 4K video on YouTube.

If you face any buffering problem, you have a major issue with the VPN. Contact the VPN service provider and let them know you are facing a problem with video streaming. After checking the video streaming quality, it’s time to check for online gaming. Usually, this is the most important part of the heavy internet user. You should not experience any lag while using the VPN for playing any games.

If you experience any lag, the VPN that you are using is not up to the mark.

In most cases, this will not be a problem for the free VPN user as the VPN service provider knows the competition in this market. But still, it’s better to check it manually.
