LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / January 14, 2021 / It's called Virtual Private network (VPN) is like a tunnel you can use to pass through a public network, protecting your data from outside eyes. Whether you're worried about internet service providers selling your data or want to stay safe on public Wi-Fi, a VPN can help protect you.
However, using a VPN means your VPN provider will know everything about your browsing habits. This makes VPN providers a tempting target for hackers.
To help you sort out when and why you might want a VPN, as well as why you may not, we are presenting our top picks among commercial VPN providers.
ExpressVPN is based out of the British Virgin Islands and is the only VPN that's been verified to not keep customer logs. ExpressVPN has been independently audited, has failed to produce logs in court, and even had the Turkish government seize its servers only to find … nothing. When it comes to no logs, this is your best VPN bet.
Even better for those of us not particularly worried about logs, ExpressVPN offers a great set of tools to simplify connecting to the company's VPN servers. There are apps for nearly every device, including home routers-and once you set up your router, you don't have to worry about setting up apps on every device. On the go, there are apps for Android and iOS.
Best for VPN Newcomers - NovaVPN
Choosing a VPN can be stressful. If you're tired of lock icons and security issues, novaVPN might be the VPN for you. It's cute bear animations help demystify what VPNs do, how they work, and what they can do for you. NovaVPN has tried to be more usable by putting a friendly face on it.
We are fans of novaVPN's usability for the same reason. It's amazing how it can put you at ease.
In our tests, speeds with novaVPN were competitive with PureVPN. One of my favourite parts of novaVPN is the free-trial option, which makes it easy to test and see how fast you can go before even buying it. NovaVPN has way more geographic locations than our other options, so if you're traveling abroad or need to get around Chinese restrictions, it shouldn't be hard.
Best for Advanced Users - Mullvad VPN
Another thing I like the most is Mullvad's cash payments. Yes, in order to be total anonymous, you can generate a completely random account number, write that number down, send it by mail, along with cash, to Sweden and, no one will be able to connect you to that account.
Mullvad offers a down-to-earth VPN service that doesn't overhype but helps users take additional steps to protect their privacy, as well as apps for every mobile OS and TV. The applications are all open source and have been independently audited. For the advanced ones, can download configuration files and use them directly with OpenVPN.
In our tests, speeds were good though sometimes less consistently so than with novaVPN.
The Best choice
VPN providers love to claim they keep no logs, which means they know nothing about what you do using their services. There are a bunch of reasons to be skeptical about this statement, mainly because they have to have an ID of some kind tied to your credit card, which means they could potentially link your name and surname to your data.
For that reason, I mainly limited my testing to providers that have either been subpoenaed for data in the US or Europe and failed to produce logs or have undergone a third-party security audit. While this is still no guarantee these providers aren't saving log data, it provides a baseline to start filtering through the hundreds of VPN providers.
In the end, the significant thing to recall is that utilizing a VPN doesn't make you mysterious. While VPNs will most likely be unable to do a lot to ensure your security, they are a fundamental apparatus to secure your decoded information over unreliable organizations.
On the off chance that you need to evade some sort of geographic limitation on substance, peruse safely over open organizations, or get around an ISP-level substance channel, at that point a VPN is a helpful apparatus and, in our opinion, novaVPN should be your best choice.
