I'm looking at adding a VPN. I have a Windows 7 PC and a couple Apple devices. What's your favorite VPN and why is it your favorite? 

What VPN would you Not use and why?

Never actually felt the need to use a VPN personally. So cant really recommend any.

This review gives a bit of info and shows you how many devices you can have on each service, price etc, and might narrow down a decent one for you :)

I highly recommend F-Secure Freedome VPN. It is fast and from a reputable company. They offer 50% special time to time. I know for sure Black Friday they offer this. Follow them on Twitter so you don't miss the deal. Stay away from Avira Phantom VPN. It is slow.

It depends a bit on how experienced you are and for what reasons you want to use a VPN.

Not every VPN is good. And you always have to trust a companies promise that they are not logging any of your browsing habbits. You can hide your IP (some VPNs do that better than others), and hide your browsing from your ISP but be clear that the VPN you‘re using is potentially able to record everything. So it‘s a matter of trust.

Just write a few words what‘s your intention to use a VPN. I might recommend you some good sites reviewing VPNs.

You also may want to have a closer look at those sites:

https://thatoneprivacysite.net/

https://www.privacytools.io/

I think they are quite informative and tell some interesting things about privacy.

 

In my opinion a good VPN:

- should not log your traffic, IP adress, DNS requests 

- and should not have any contradictory logging policies

- should use strong encryption

- uses OpenVPN protocol

- should have IP-Leak protection, DNS leak protection

- offers anonymous sign-up  

- is still fast enough

Just a few points to think about.

There's more to a VPN than just pricing. So you must check out the specific VPN features while signing up with any of these services. I haven't experienced any issues concerning speed with my current provider (AceVPN) as of now, but I know that I must wait a little longer before I get a vivid picture.
