VPN Mobile: downloading 480 millions of applications

More than 480 millions of mobile VPN apps have been downloaded from the official Stores app for Android and iOS devices in the past 12 months, according to a Top10VPN publication.

This number is 54% higher than last year, which recorded 311 million downloads.

Of the 480 million downloads, 75% were downloads of VPN apps for Android (358,3 millions) while 121,9 downloaded millions of VPN apps for iOS, which is not surprising as Android has a much larger number of users.VPN

“The downloads have been more in Asia-Pacific (APAC), an area that has been plagued by political and social unrest for the past 12 months. There were 188 millions of applications downloaded, which is more than twice the total of last year, ”said Simon Migliano, head of research at Top10VPN.

VPN or Proxy; Which one is for me?

The country that topped the download charts, according to Migliano, was Indonesia as Indonesians downloaded more 75,5 million mobile VPN applications. The increase in downloads reached 111% compared to the previous year.VPN

Next is the US (75,6 million) and India (57 million), two countries with too many internet users, although their political climate is stable.

Next are Jordan (387%), Kazakhstan (210%), Algeria (205%) and Vietnam (140%). These countries are experiencing political turmoil.

According to Publication by Top10VPN, 84,3% of 480 million downloads concerned free VPN applications.

The most downloaded apps, according to the Stores app for Android and iOS, were TurboVPN (51,3 million), Hotspot Shield (42,8 million) and Betternet (29,9 million).
