With the repeal of the Net Neutrality I am looking for something to encrypt all of my internet traffic at home and out and about. Im looking for recommendations for a VPN service that doesnt keep logs, offers anonymous payment methods (even though I probably wont use them), allows gaming and torrenting, and allows multiple PC's per account (3 or less).

 

I used Mulvad in the past and it seemed ok, but they have a pretty limited number of servers and we had some issues with connectivity sporadically. What others should I consider?

Same company that ProtonMail is owned by? I havent heard anything about Proton VPN in all of my VPN research. How does it stack up against NordVPN, Mullvad, etc?

They dont seem to have great reviews. They have some pretty weird language in their TOS and their speeds are atrocious.

They (Proton) have updated the software several times since that review . I donated money to that one privacy guy site , still he does not have the resources to be that thorough , a good basic view of all the sites . I have seen quite a few mistakes in the reviews because I have used and still use several of the VPN providers and know that he made mistakes . A good site for basic info , a start to your research .

It's a big field with lots of crap out there , read up as much as you can before making a choice .

The technical issues arent that big of a deal. Its the logging, jurisdiction, and ethics issue that are the largest problem for me. While I dont venture off into questionable spaces online or partake in illegal activity, I do want to be able to trust a company wont just hand over identifying information at the first sign of a potential problem.

 

So far its looking like Mullvad may still be a winner based on cost, TOS, and logging/ethics policies.

I vote for: AirVPN, ProtonVPN, Mullvad

 

Torrentfreak has an annual VPN questionnaire that they publish for different VPN providers. It's worth a read - here's their 2017 version.

Thanks for the recommend, have been on the fence for 3-4 days, was ready to pull the trigger on NordVPN after seeing their 3 year deal (auto renewable) at $99, equals to be $2.75/month. 

 

Not that I'm looking to do anything illegal, just want end to end encryption for making transactions. Can be used on public or guest hotspots also, this way someone in the corner can't see what I'm doing. More for an extra layer of security over anything else. 

 

Works with Linux Mint also! :thumbsup:

 

Again, a big thanks for the endorsement of NordVPN, not like they need more than what's out there, yet it's good to hear this from one who has no financial interest in the corporation. :)

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
