Popcorn Time on PC
Popcorn Time on PC

The article is all about the best Popcorn Time VPN on each platform. When you have a free software equivalent to Netflix, then no can’t say no. Popcorn Time is a great tool, but the downloading technology it uses is torrenting. Developers consider torrenting as not safe. When you torrent, you seed which means you are letting everyone know that I’m sitting right here downloading content from the internet. The article will explain the best Popcorn Time VPN on PC and Android.

The article explains the top free VPN client for Popcorn Time which allows high speed downloading. First, we will enclose the best Popcorn Time VPN on PC and then on Android. Before we begin, let’s find out what VPN and torrenting is? In simple English.

What is torrenting

Torrent Example
Torrent Example

A file-sharing system based on peer-to-peer (P2P) technology. The technology allows people to share files. There is no limit on how many people can join. The more people join the speed they get. In simple words, a torrent cuts a big file into small pieces and rather than only you downloading everyone is sharing that file. Things go wrong when you torrent. The torrent file you download always keeps track of who is downloading which part of that file and what is the download location, which hackers use to steal your data. The software like BitTorrent and uTorrent are famous for downloading torrents from the internet.

What is VPN

What is VPN Example
What is VPN Example

The virtual private network is an encrypted protocol. VPN adds an extra layer of security on your network. In simple English, VPN encrypts all the data you send from your computer. While torrenting you download and upload which means you send the data. A user should not be worried about other users, but hackers are looking for these kinds of people all the time. The first thing a VPN client does is changing your location and IP Address to the country you select. The second thing it does is encrypt your data so the other users can’t read. When VPN is enabled, even your service provider can’t track you down.

An old friend who has supported me a lot. UltraSurf is a free ad-free VPN client for PC and Android. It comes with some amazing tools. You don’t need to install the software on the PC, and it is only 3.4 MB. When you open the software, it connects to the best server by default. Once connected it shows the IP Address with a message “Successfully connected to server!”. You can also change the server by clicking on one of the other servers. The options menu comes with options including HotKeys, history, port, proxy settings etc. When started it opens a web page called “UltraSurf Top Stories” for advertising purposes. Another great feature is when you exit it asks to close the browsers before closing software. UltraSurf is one of the top Popcorn Time VPNs. Check out the software in-action.

The down point of UltraSurf is, it does not support specific country servers. It shows only three different servers while it automatically connects with the high speed one.

Which One is the Best Plagiarism Checker in 2019? Conducting Tests

Plagiarism is one of the vital problems on the internet. From universities to search engines every tool checks for the plagiarism before anything else. Are you confused which Plagiarism Checker you should trust? In this post, I have put the top 8 plagiarism checkers to find out the best Plagiarism checkers. The post is going to test below tools, and we will put some hard to find text on the internet to see which tools are the best to check for the plagiarism.

Please note that this is the second test and the final results in the test are the combined scores from the previous test and current test. Tools we are going to check are:

  1. Plagiarism Checker by Small SEO Tools.
  2. PLAGIARISMA.
  3. Grammarly (paid).
  4. Dupli Checker.
  5. EduBirdie.
  6. Quetext.
  7. PaperRater.
  8. Plagium.

Testing the text from one of my newly written posts

Before we begin, there are quite a few things which we must keep in mind before finding the best plagiarism checker. The first thing is, a plagiarism checker is the best if it can check the newest possible writing and it can guide us to the original content. Considering that, I’m going to test a piece of text from one of my new posts and see which plagiarism checkers can detect the text.

The text I’m going to test is from the post SwiftKey Keyboard vs Gboard and compare the functionality for each checker. The best Plagiarism Checker will most likely to show me the plagiarised text with the link, and hopefully, all of the checkers will be able to identify that. I’m using the scoring system which will give you an idea about the tool and its functionalities.

01. Plagiarism Checker by Small SEO Tools (free) | Score: 90

Plagiarism Checker by Small SEO Tools
Plagiarism Checker by Small SEO Tools

In my previous tests, Plagiarism got 70 scores, and at that time, the interface was different. Now they have updated the interface, and I must say they have improved the tool too. Plagiarism Checker by Small SEO Tools is one of the great tools, According to the tool, 83% of the content was plagiarised, and 17% of the material was unique. The best thing about this tool is, it gives you the options to compare the plagiarised text which mainly goes to google and searches the text, it shows you the website address of the original content in the second menu, and it shows the highlighted plagiarised text in the third menu. I have given 90 scores to this tool because it does not ask for any account information and the tool is free.

02. PLAGIARISMA (free) | Score: 50

PLAGIARISMA
PLAGIARISMA

I hate to say this, but PLAGIARISMA could not find the text at all. The tool has two options (Google/Bing), and you must select one, so the checker can check for the writing on the search engine. There is also an option to find the exact match or similar. Picking Google showed me that the text is 100% unique while selecting Bing showed me that the writing is 10% unique. I can understand that selecting Bing gives somehow accurate results but most of the people are always scared of Google. There is a limit on how many times you can check the content each day so make sure you are not splitting the text.

03. Grammarly (paid) | Score: 80

Grammarly
Grammarly

The tool is one of the great Plagiarism checking tools out there and my favourite too, but the problem with this tool is you can’t check the content for free. In the tests, Grammarly could find the real text within a couple of seconds, and it showed the text as 100% plagiarised with a link to the original text post. The paid version is $11 per month on an annual plan and $29 per month on the monthly plan. The reason I have given this tool 80 scores is that the tool is paid so you can not check the text for free. You can check prices here.

04. DupliChecker (free) | Score: 95

Dupli Checker
Dupli Checker

The fourth plagiarism checker on the list is Dupli Checker. The tool is one of the best plagiarism checkers out there because it is fast, free, and up-to-date. The tool could find the text source and shows me a link to the post. If you want to compare the text, then hit the Compare Text button and it will download shows you the original page with red highlighted plagiarised text. Surely one of the great tools to try.

05. EduBirdie (free) | Score: 90

quetext
quetext

When I first wrote this post, the tool got 35 scores because it could not find the text, but I must say this time it could find the text and showed the source. The tool has improved, and the best thing about EduBirdie is it shows you every possible source which contains the original text. You can differentiate between sources by clicking on the show button.

06. quetext (free) | Score: 30

quetext
quetext

Oops! quetext missed the text, I think. The tool showed me that, the text was unique. The reason I have given this tool 30 scores is that it has a great interface and it displays the red highlighted plagiarised text when it finds anything.

07. PaperRater (free) | Score: 95

PaperRater
PaperRater

The seventh plagiarism checker on the list in PaperRater and I was satisfied with the results because in the tests I could see that 89% of the text was not real. It also showed me both possible links which contain the original content. You can hover to the source to see the highlighted text. Clicking on the source goes to the website straight away.

Check out: Grammarly vs Microsoft Word.

08. Plagium (free) | Score: 100

 

Plagium
Plagium

It is a great plagiarism checker and the way it handled my text was beautiful. It comes with two options “the web” and “news” with two buttons “Quick Search” and “Deep Scan”. The deep scan requires a free account sign up, but you can quickly search with the quick search button. In results, it showed the source of the text with the percentage of similar text. The other best thing about Plagium is it sorts all the source from most similar to less similar so you can get the most accurate result on the top. The checker got 100 scores because it sure is one of the best plagiarism checkers.

Final results

The final results are combined results for the previous test and this test. The score might be different because of the comparison with the old test.

CheckerScore
Plagiarism Checker by Small SEO Tools80
PLAGIARISMA45
Grammarly100
Dupli Checker93

In conclusion

Well, the results from plagiarism checkers are in front of you. The results table shows that in both the tests, Grammarly, Dupli Checker, PaperRater, and Plagium found the correct sources. Grammarly is a paid one, and if you don’t want to pay, then you can go Plagium, PaperRater, or Dupli Checker.
