Best VPN (virtual private network)
Last updated: June 16, 2021
Here's our favorite VPN: ProtonVPN.
Why: Switzerland-based ProtonVPN is made by the same team behind ProtonMail, one of our recommended email providers.
Business model: Monthly subscription fees. There is a free plan with slower speed and fewer features.
Note: There are many good VPNs available. Although we like ProtonVPN as a generally good option, we also recommend looking into other VPNs that may fit your needs better. Wikipedia offers comparisons of virtual private network services.
• IVPN, a Gibraltar-based VPN that does not log any user activity.
• TunnelBear, a Canada-based VPN that performs annual security audits.
• Even more options in SafetyDetective's VPN Comparison by That One Privacy Guy.
