Everyday VPN services are used by millions of people in countries across the globe. A VPN helps users bypass internet restrictions such as censored or geo-restricted content while providing anonymity by masking their IP address and location. We believe freedom to access information online is a basic right. Betternet Technologies Inc. is the team behind the Betterspot project. We have over 5 years of experience providing secure VPN services for more than 40 million users around the globe. Our team has proven its place as your first VPN choice on the world wide web.
As smart devices and IoT are quickly and inevitably becoming part of our daily lives, the need for a safe, secure and a fast VPN service becomes essential. We noticed it had become a challenge to find a VPN app that works on all your devices, in the home or at the office. To meet this challenge, Betternet decided to create Betterspot, a device which easily connects to your router providing VPN functions to all of your WiFi devices such as tablets, smart phones, laptops, PCs, etc. Betterspot is compatible with various operating systems such as Windows, Ubuntu, OS X, Android, iOS, Blackberry,etc. By supporting Betterspot, you are supporting a device which will provide security, privacy and freedom of information to millions.

Some may overlook design as an essential feature of a VPN router, supposing it should just bypass the internet restrictions. Going the extra mile for us means making Betterspot a beautifully designed and efficient product which exceeds our customers’ expectations.
Betterspot, distinguished by the Betternet Shield located on top of it, may be one of the most modern, exciting, convenient and user-friendly VPN routers on the market. After six months of effort and research, our professional design team has created two models. Based on the user feedback we ensured that not only the functionality was streamlined, but also the design remained sleek and attractive.
Our team considered every detail in the process of developing Betterspot, including a multi-color LED which shows Betterspot’s status to the user. Two Ethernet ports and a micro USB port are neatly placed at the back of the device. Surrounding these key components is a hard ABS polymer case. You’ll know it’s a quality product because like our Betternet App it features the shield logo you’ve come to trust.
What the top tech media say about our brand:
All settings in your hand
Betterspot allows you to control the device easily through your smartphone. You just need to install it on one device and the rest will connect and pair to Betterspot without any need to install apps.
Connect to Betternet premium service to increase your security and privacy and choose between multiple server locations. Encrypting your data, Betternet secures your connection. It changes your IP address, and hides your real locations. It helps you access blocked websites, and bypass internet censorship and firewalls. Betternet lets you access different streaming channels everywhere; even when you are traveling.
You can switch to Tor anonymity network and surf anonymously. It hides you from the other users on the network, so the more populous and diverse the user base for Tor is, the more your anonymity will be protected. Tor allows you to improve your privacy and security on the Internet. It also lets organizations and individuals share information over public networks without compromising their privacy.
You can turn the VPN off by choosing this mode. In this mode, Betterspot functions like a normal router. If you only use a secure connection for certain services and prefer to browse the net using your own IP address, we made it easy for you to switch between VPN/TOR and Direct mode. In Direct mode, your router acts like a messenger: it only sends your requests to the internet without any modifications.
VPN usually changes your location. Sometimes, you don’t want to change your location but you need to connect to a local network. To do so, you can specify which website traffic you wish not to be transferred through VPN or Tor connection.
Choose your desired server location from the menu. We provide a broad range of dedicated, and premium servers all around the world.

We’d like to say that Betterspot was the result of a “eureka” moment, however we think the reality is far more interesting. Through inspiring feedback we were able to construct a product that meets all your demands. We realized that Betternet users enthusiastically require using Betternet on all of their smart devices such as smart TVs, Windows phones, Mac computers, Blackberires and Apple TVs, but unfortunately VPN apps cannot be installed on all these devices.
As we traveled abroad we were faced with online restrictions and censorship. This encouraged us to design Betternet, a VPN service that has now more than 40 million users. To ensure we were on the right path during each stage of development we engaged our users across the globe. The first stop was China where we asked our users for feedback about Betternet VPN, which in turn further encouraged us to develop the hardware. Thanks to our customers’ comments, we had a new idea: a device you could simply connect all your smart devices to. A device that is small, portable, easy to use and empowered with our award winning Premium VPN service: Betternet. By running the VPN for your smart device, Betterspot will reduce the exhaustion of your smart devices' battery life.
