Which VPN Service Do You Recommend?
I have yet another friend who asked me what VPN service he should use.
I seem to have a lot of friends/family who fall into these categories:
want a VPN for various non-nefarious reasons (want additional protection when in hotels, are not committing crimes but prefer more privacy, heard VPNs "make you more secure", etc.)
in principle prefers no logging but isn't really worried about it because is not doing anything more super l33t than watching hulu in another country
are not technical enough to run their own server or administer a VPN
prefer a service because there are usually hundreds of endpoints to choose from not just one
the usual consumer comforts like supported on all major platforms, etc.
probably will pay with a Visa and doesn't know or care about crypto currency or complete anonymity with the provider
I'm the worst person to give a recommendation because while I generally use a VPN, it's often to purposefully appear from one IP (to enable whitelisting on various systems).
So...given that...who might you recommend?
Disclaimer: LEB is promoting ExpressVPN and PureVPN, but I have not personally used either. Over the years I've tried some cheap promos from NordVPN and PIA and they were fine, but I didn't really push the service hard or investigate them too closely.
