Recommend a VPN service please


Recommended Posts

Looking at adding a VPN service. Would love some recommendations from those who have tried various providers. Considering Nord, Express VPN, and the like.

Friend was telling me that the downside he has seen is around subscription services that you pay for legitimately rejecting IP's  if its one they recognize as associated to one of the VPN providers. Any other downside by provider you have experienced would be helpful.

Appreciate insights.

If it helps anyone else, I picked up NordVPN yesterday. Playing with it still, but after adding to Desktop, iPhone, and Firestick its seems pretty good. Not seeing any decrease in speed to my  fiber connection on speedtests. Love seeing geoblocking is no longer a worry.  Uncensored news and the UK library for TV streaming! Look forward to the roadracing season starting up.

I've been using PIA (Private Internet Access).   One of the things I like about it is that they specifically go out of their way to say that they don't keep any logs.  This is critical for privacy; if they keep logs they can be retrieved with a court order and track you down.  If there are no logs kept, then there is nothing to get and thus you're privacy is secured better.   

 

NOTE: NORDVPN also has a strict no log policy.

One downside I've noticed when I use NordVPN on my phone is that my banking apps don't load. Seems they block the some of the IPs used by NordVPN. 

 

Thanks steveo50 for those recs. Any reasons for those ones over NordVPN or ExpressVPN (which both market their services very heavily)

Proton started off as an encrypted email service, and has become the top email service amongst privacy enthusiast. They started the vpn a few years ago and you can, for a lack of better words “bundle” the vpn and email service. The company is based in Switzerland which has some of the strictest privacy laws. It’s all open source. Their vpn has a lot of cool features. 

Private Internet access is secure, cheap, fast, and has lots of servers. Good customer service. You can get a dedicated ip. 

At the end of the day I’m sure they are all better than nothing, I just try to pay attention to what the experts in the security/privacy industry use.
