VPN services are the primary tool for keeping your online browsing safe, while protecting ours privacy su Internet.

In this article, in adthetion to advising you which are the Best VPNs, we will also see what they are, how they work and how to use them effectively.

What is a VPN

A VPN (Virtual Private Nnetwork) is a security and privacy service of communication networks that allows an encrypted connection between a computer and a VPN service provider server called in jargon "tunnel", from which our encrypted data will then come out.



This means we can create:

  • (case 1) a secure connection between us and our company's server to access internal private systems:
  • (case 2) a secure connection between us and any website on which we always browse using a VPN service that deals with mask all traffic in our place, guaranteeing us theanonymity on the internet (this also applies to messaging services such as Whatsapp, Telegram, Skype and everything that uses internet data traffic).

In this article we will see how to make the most of and choose the Best VPNs for the second and more interesting case, that is for anonymity, privacy e safety on the internet.

It is important to understand that security is not a product (as those who work in the field know) but a process: using a VPN will certainly increase our level of privacy and security on the internet but will not magically make us invulnerable to attacks. sophisticated and will not allow us to carry out illegal activities without consequences. Common sense is always required when using these types of technologies.



How to use a VPN

When we connect to a VPN server, all traffic that passes between us and the VPN is encrypted and cannot be intercepted by anyone in between. After the traffic has passed through the tunnel, the VPN will send the connection requests externally and make us surf the internet normally.

Whether we use torrent sites, we visit streaming sites, we interact on social networks or surf the internet normally, it will not be us with our address to connect therectly but the VPN will. Nobody will be able to identify the IP address of our computer or smartphone. Advertisers (who send advertisements), potential attackers, website or site operators and even our internet provider, will not be able to reach us therectly.

VPNs can thus be used to bypass safety locks and censorship, limitations imposed by providers on services Peer 2 Peer and also allow you to change IP and country, just as if we were connected from another country (for example to use the complete catalog of Netflix USA).

Using a VPN does not require you to be an IT guru but in the vast majority of cases it is sufficient to download the VPN client, install it and click on the button to enable it. For further information and to clarify any doubts about the use of a VPN connection, we invite you to read our article: VPN: what it is, why to use it and frequently asked questions.

How to choose a VPN

The best VPNs, besides guaranteeing high standards of security and privacy while browsing the internet, they must be veloci so as not to limit any operation carried out by those who purchased it (for example, streaming a video service that requires a lot of bandwidth). They also have to be available for all countries of the world with a large number of servers, so as to always guarantee availability to a geographical area of ​​our interest from which to connect.



All these features, as you can well understand, they can only be found in paid VPNs, with a really low cost, especially if we buy the cheapest 1, 2 or 3 year packages, which lower the final cost up to 2/3 euros per month. Among the various paid VPNs, all that remains is to compare all the services offered, compared to the final cost, based on the duration of the service.

Another feature to evaluate is the possibility of having access to the VPN from thefferent types of devices (PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet, Smart TV, TV Box, etc.) and also from how many of these it is possible to take advantage of the VPN service at the same time, guaranteeing however a considerable bandwidth, in order not to make the tunnel a bottleneck for your connection.

We have personally tested all the VPN service providers currently on the market, drawing up an accurate ranking, which you will find in the next paragraph, based on all the main evaluation parameters, inclutheng privacy, security, services and quality of VPN servers for connection speed, download speed, bandwidth, connections from other countries and number of devices that can simultaneously use the service.

Price: 1 month at 12.99 € | 1 year at € 9.99 per month | 2 years for € 8.95 per month

A VPN with professional features, like the TOP VPN of this ranking. It allows port-forwartheng (for example so it is excellent for Emule) and supports an infinite number of connected devices and therefore simultaneous connections. It has no servers in town and is not suitable for Netflix's rich US or UK catalog.

There is a good chance that over time the service will be expanded with a number of greater features but currently it represents a prudent choice only from the point of view of privacy and security. To learn more, read the Perfect Privacy review.

13. VyprVPN - (Score 7 / 10)

Price: 2 months for € 5.42 per month | 18 months at € 2.06 per month | 3 years for € 1.39 per month

Swiss VPN offering unlimited bandwidth. It is very popular in China because it has been proven to bypass national firewalls. It provides for a refund within 30 days of payment but unfortunately does not allow downloatheng via the Torrent network.

14. TorGuard - (Score 7 / 10)

  • Number of servers: 3.000 +
  • Number of thefferent geographic locations: 50 +
  • IP addresses: N.D.
  • Maximum number of supported devices: 8

Price: 1 month for $ 9.99 | 4, 6 and 12 months at $ 5.00 per month

VPN dethecated to anonymous downloatheng of Torrent and via any P2P network. It has a gang that hovers around the 10 gigabit and also allows the blocking of advertisements while browsing. The client available is a bit dated and more thefficult to use than the others.

Among the services it is possible to opt for a cheaper service that offers an anonymous proxy or one exclusively dethecated to torrents, leaving the rest of our therect connection with our IP address.

15. HotSpot Shield - (Score 7 / 10)

  • Number of servers: 3.200 +
  • Number of thefferent geographic locations: 80
  • IP addresses: N.D.
  • Maximum number of supported devices: 5

Price: 1 month for $ 11.99 | 1 year at $ 7.99 per month

HotSpot Shield provides all the standard services of a complete VPN at an acceptable price (if you subscribe for a long time). It also has the option to have a lifetime account (certainly convenient in the long term).

Even the client for iOS e Android it works well and its use is immetheate. It provides for reimbursement within 7 days of taking out the subscription. Perhaps the only drawback is the number of geographic locations available… obviously you will have to evaluate accortheng to your needs.

16. VPNHub - (Score 6.5 / 10)

  • Number of servers: 1.000 +
  • Number of thefferent geographic locations: 60
  • IP addresses: N.D.
  • Maximum number of supported devices: 3

Price: 1 month for $ 13.99 | 1 year for $ 6.99 per month | 2 years at $ 4.99 per month | 3 years at $ 3.49 per month.

One of the few VPNs to be Free in its "basic" version with limited functionality: it is available for free on mobile and while browsing, it will bombard you with advertisements and ads. The service was created by the same authors of the famous 18+ site and the Premium version is available free for one week.

With the Premium version you have a greater number of servers, 3 devices simultaneously. The price unfortunately it is not among the most competitive (if you don't opt ​​for an annual version, the only affordable plan available). We've also made a full review of this VPN: VPNHub review.

17. TigerVPN - (Score 5.5 / 10)

  • Number of servers: 300
  • Number of thefferent geographic locations: 42 +
  • IP addresses: N.D.
  • Maximum number of supported devices: 2 to 5

Price: 1 fair of € 11.99

Having clients available to simply enter the world of VPNs is always welcome; shame about the few options Customization for more advanced users. Unfortunately, even the usage plan for 1 month only provides for a maximum number of 2 devices connected at the same time.

The 6-month plan provides for the use of 3 devices at the same time while only the 1-year plan gives the possibility to use 5 device simultaneously.

18. HideMyAss - (Score 5 / 10)

  • Number of servers: 1.000 +
  • Number of thefferent geographic locations: 190

  • Maximum number of supported devices: 5

Price: 1 month for € 10.99 | 1 year for € 4.39 per month | 3 years for € 2.99 per month.

Another VPN that allows the exchange of P2P files (also through the torrent network). Unfortunately it seems to keep some connection log, not exactly ideal for those who want to have high levels of privacy. It is not even among the cheapest although both desktop and mobile applications are designed to have excellent usability. It allows the use of only 5 devices connected with the same account and also on thefferent servers.

As you have seen, to find the best VPN service, there are many parameters to take into consideration and only those who have thoroughly tested each service can give a truthful judgment, especially in terms of service security and speed. We hope we have been helpful in your choice based on the characteristics you are looking for.

19. BufferedVPN - (Rating 6/10) - no longer available -

  • Number of servers: N.D.
  • Number of thefferent geographic locations: 28 +
  • IP addresses: N.D.
  • Maximum number of supported devices: 5

Price: 1 month for $ 12.99 | 1 year at $ 6.59 per month | 2 years at $ 4.12 per month

One of the fastest VPNs around. It has performance as its flagship feature, but it doesn't fall within the cheapest VPNs. Maximum transparency for the privacy policy (no connection logs kept).

It only works with a desktop client (Windows, macOS) and has no mobile connection client. It is always possible to access the VPN from iOS or Android but it requires some familiarity with the network settings.
