There are so many VPN Extensions that you can add to Google Chrome browser to unblock any blocked websites, and these VPNs also allows to access Dark Web without Tor Browser. However, all of them are not as good as some of them. Earlier we discussed about Zenmate VPN extension, but now it has started serving ads whether you are using the VPN or not. Serving ads make sense when the VPN is turned on, but when it is off why should they serve ads. In such case, many users may want to use an alternative, and we have got some of the best alternatives for you.
If you often use your Smartphone or Tablet to unblock websites and services, you can download VPN App. Those who don’t want to add any VPN extension to browser or download app, they can use any web proxy.
Note : You may feel the browsing speed has decreased while using VPN. Any VPN can’t give you the best browsing experience whether you are using a paid VPN or free one. So you should turn off the VPN when it is not needed.
Top 10 Zenmate alternative VPN Extensions for Google Chrome Browser
DotVPN seems to be working fine as I have tested for a couple of days. It connects to the VPN servers in a few seconds. Once you add to Google Chrome Browser, its icon will be added on the top right corner. You need to click the icon, and follow the screen’s prompt. It asks to enter the Email address to use the service. However, they don’t send any verification email (it may change in future). I typed a dummy email and it worked fine. If they start verifying the email, you can still use a temporary email address to verify.
DotVPN allows to connect to United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, France, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Russia, and it all comes for free with unlimited access. You can just slide the switch to turn on the VPN. To change the IP to a different location, simply click on the Server Location option, and select any country listed there. You can change the location anytime even when the VPN is already turned. When you switch the location, it automatically disconnects the user form one server, and connect to another.

Some issues with Hola VPN
- Hola VPN doesn’t works in some countries, e.g. UAE. It never connects to the server, and I faced the same issue. I had to turn on another VPN to make Hola VPN work, but after getting connected I turned off the other VPN, and it worked fine.
- You can’t browse Google Search Engine with Hola, but Yahoo and Bing can still be used.
- Every time you visit a new website, you will have to select the location manually. So it doesn’t seems to be connected all the time. It works like web proxy where you type a website URL and visit.
Betternet comes with simple user interface. You are just one click away to connect to VPN. Once you are connected to VPN, you can browse any site you want, and there is no need to turn on again and again even you visit a new website.

10. HotSpot Shield
HotSpot Shield is free to use as long as you are okay with US location. They allow users to upgrade to premium service, and get access to more locations. When you use HotSpot Shield VPN, you will have to connect it again whenever you visit a new website, just like Hola VPN. Users can try 7 days premium service for free.
Please don’t add more than one VPN to your Google Chrome browser. One should be enough to unblock any website, and you can remove one VPN and add another if you are facing any issue. It will help you to enjoy smooth browsing.
