Free Internet Service Provider lets users connected with friends via social media sites and email without needing a subscription.
Free said Monday that it had signed up more than 2 million users since it launched last week, and more than a million are currently using its free plan.
The move comes after the company launched its $7.99 “free” tier last month, which includes a free two-year subscription to the company’s free-to-play games service.
Its $10.99 tier is also available for a monthly fee of $10 or $15.
Users are encouraged to sign up for a $2.99 plan to get access to more games.
Free’s “free,” “free-to” and “free to play” terms and conditions say users can only connect to other users through their own email address.
That means that the company doesn’t allow other sites or services to post messages, and it doesn’t block ads or limit the number of times a user can communicate with others.
Free also says it has “zero spam” policies, and does not share user information.
Users can also connect with other Free customers, who can do the same.
Free is owned by AOL, which said it bought the company in 2015 for $400 million.
AOL said the company “does not sell or rent user data to third parties.”
Free’s Free to Play service allows users to play free games on AOL’s popular video site, YouTube.
It’s also available to users who subscribe to the service’s $3.99 monthly plan.
Free says it doesn´t share user data with third parties, and has no plans to do so.
“We do not collect any personal information from our users, and we do not sell, rent or share user details with third-parties,” a Free to play FAQ page said.
“As an Internet service, we do collect certain information about your use of our services.
For example, we may use certain information to detect inappropriate or abusive behavior.
We may also collect information from you if you purchase additional features.”
