OldPhil, I have been looking at IPvanish, I found it at comparitech, they have expressvpn as 1, nordvpn as 2, ipvanish at 3 and a bunch of others,

I selected vanish because it as been built for torrenting, have a look for your self, I might try one month payment to see how it does.

Hey,I think NordVPN is an excellent choice, you could also take a look at ProtonVPN & P.I.A. :)

NordVPN shows a killer deal if one stays on the page for a minute, $99 for 3 years & auto renewal. :thumbup2:

 

One will continue to get the full 3 years afterwards, good for 5-6 devices, to include most all OS's (including Linux), as well as smartphones, the latter most likely their high volume business. I say this because a smartphone is far less secure than a computer, or so that's what most security reviewers says. Kind of like Smart TV's, keeps up with everything one does to feed ads. If using a VPN, should fix the issue. 

 

I don't have NordVPN yet, although have been having an itchy finger to pull the trigger for the last 3-4 days & most likely will. Not that I have anything to hide, rather want another layer of security. Even though what I do is legal, doesn't mean my ISP, Microsoft & others should know my business. Plus will give me end to end encryption when making transactions. Even if on a public or guest hotspot, no one in the corner can make out what I'm doing. The installed Firewall doesn't protect the signal once it leaves the computer or device, where a reputable VPN comes into play. :)

 

They have a TOS just as any other service, certain activities aren't allowed & Nord (or any other VPN service) can terminate the contract at will, don't know if they give a pro-rated refund or not. However, there's a 30 day satisfaction guarantee, if one doesn't like the service after paying, can terminate for a refund during the trial period, it's best not to wait until the last day make the decision. One should know within a week or two if NordVPN (or any other) is best for one's need. 

 

As far as reputation goes, have read much everywhere, are at or near the top of all VPN service charts, lots of servers & very high encryption of data flow. Was thinking of one of the 'lifetime' options from another provider, which means nothing should they be acquired by another corporation or goes belly up. Don't see that happening with NordVPN. :)

I gave IVACY a run. Hopeless. Disconnects at will at random times. I dont encounter this crap with my current vpn.

 

Would not recommend.

Nord is a good vpn. Forget about the rankings review sites are posting, the one I follow "bestvpn" places Nord on 2nd but I can tell you man, its a lot better than the 1st one :D

 

I've used Express, PureVPN and IPVanish, I find Nord a lot better than them.

Its good good GO from me because, Nord VPN offers a VPN service comparatively at a  cheap price that allows its users to browse anonymously and securely.

Their virtual private network servers use Open VPN tunneling protocol and AES 256-bit encryption (with double data protection) which is a big thing I must say ;) 

 

I would like to highlight some of its features for you :)

  1. Strong Features & Add Ons
  2. No Logging Policy
  3. Best for Netflix and Torrenting
  4. Improved Speed
  5. No DNS LeaK

Nord VPN still offers the 3 year plan, which comes out to $2.75/month (although must be paid in full). No discount code needed. :guitar:

 

https://join.nordvpn.com/order/?_ga=2.97312607.1558459349.1535732977-390314237.1535732977

 

I really need one now, considering have recently purchased an iPhone, don't know (yet) how well Mac security is. Have always been leery of both Apple & Google Pay, now a lot of my business is on the phone. 

 

I'd call $99 billed every 3 years (can use PayPal) a good value & high security, for both mobile & home usage. Nord (or any worth having VPN) also allows many of our AU forum members to 'be' in a US location to access services where otherwise not allowed. Or US residents (example) to appear from another jurisdiction where we can't be overseen by Big Government. :)

 

They were big on monitoring calls/Internet usage long before jumping on on the anti-encryption deal during the tenure of James Comey.

 

Not that I'm promoting one brand over the other, yet the more anti-logging features & strong encryption, the better. So it basically boils down to Nord & Express, and what deal (time included) one wants. 

 

Those which are shipped with security packages cannot be trusted as well, plus not as much data allowed. An add-on for more data with these becomes pricey.

I only recently heard about this when it was advertised on TV, telling people about its great benefits. Not something I'd use though, because VPNs don't interest me the slightest bit.

If you want to make your internet activity private or anonymous then yes, VPN is a great tool.
