Which VPN is best with Eset Internet Security


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been asked by a relative to find out which VPN works best with ESET.  When I googled it I found there are potentially a lot of issues which would need a lot of messing around with settings.  In this case the VPN is needed because they have to use a public network pretty much all the time.  I read on one site that 'Private Internet Access' is a VPN which is compatible with ESET - does anyone have any experience of this? I'm ideally hoping to find a solution that's just 'download and get on with it' 🙂 but I do appreciate things don't often work that way! Any advice, experience and recommendations would be much appreciated.  Thank you!

The best VPN provider is the one which gives you the best speeds. AV software has no bearing on it.

Speed is okay but security is better. A VPN needs to be secure and trustworthy

Analysis of the world’s top VPN services conducted by the privacy and security research firm VPNpro revealed that the top 97 VPN services are owned by only 23 parent companies.

Of those parent companies, six are based in China, and information on these companies is often hidden to consumers, according to VPNpro. Together those six companies offer 29 of the world’s VPN services, but researchers were able to piece together ownership information via company listings, geolocation data, the CVs of employees and other documentation.

“This new report that exposes nearly a third of top VPN providers being owned by parent companies in China is very alarming as this makes the service from these companies very insecure. If you use one of these VPNs, China can use your device to store dangerous content and initiate malicious encounters. You might be subjecting yourself to a criminal investigation.”

When all is said and done, not all VPNs are created equal. Users need to fully understand what constitutes a reputable VPN and do their due diligence when selecting a provider.

Really interesting read. New there where some dodgy ones out there e.g. possibly collecting and selling information but didn't realise how many where owned by the same company.

Not surprised though to see some also own review sites
