I want to start using a VPN so that I can (a) increase my security and (b) start watching American Netflix etc. There are so many VPN options out there - what are some or one that you would recommend? What do you use and what is the cost? Thanks
I use three different solutions, depending on what I’m doing
I roll my own vpn on a server I rented in the states (same datacenter as this website). This is the one I use for Netflix and when I’m on public wifi, etc. Price is like $10/month, but I use the server for a lot of other stuff too.
I use Private Tunnel – here’s a referral link: https://www.privatetunnel.com/index.php?referral=CM5SZSYOZK (refer friends for more data, just like I did there). There’s a free account you can sign up there to see if it works for you.
Works with openvpn on all kinds of devices, computers, etc. I use this when I want privacy or to get around ‘blocked’ sites, etc.
- I use tigervpn for European stuff – like streaming soccer games and when I don’t want my ISP to see what I’m downloading I signed up for a lifetime account a while back for something like $30.
I use privateinternetaccess.com and use ddwrt on my router. One of the most recommended vpn companies for torrents. I have been with them for 2 years and am very happy.
Thanks for the suggestions, MiG! Is there a relatively inexpensive choice that is operating system agnostic? I’m running iOS (iPads), Windows 10 Pro, Slackware, and OpenBSD.
All of those mentioned in this thread work with linux, windows, macOS, iOS, Android.
Thanks for the reply, MiG.
