Hide your IP address, encrypt your traffic and browse with lightning fast speed- these are only a few of the features Windows users will enjoy when joining ExpressVPN. They claim to be the fastest VPN around, and while I am normally cynical about such claims, I honestly can say this was the fastest VPN I have tried. Their special feature, “VPN Speed Test,” lets users check how fast their VPN server is working, so that they can chop and change the location that is fastest for them. They also hav

The NordVPN Desktop app secures your connections with powerful tools and blazing speed. Unlike other premium VPNs, you don't have to pay that much to get high speeds and security. It’s no big secret that NordVPN is reputed as the best VPN out there. It has excellent reviews nicely placed on their homepage, and all from very happy customers, as well as links to articles by bigwig industry publications like PC Mag, Forbes etc. I wanted to figure out what all the fuss was about, so took it upon my

CyberGhost has an interesting strategy when it comes to connecting to servers. Instead of choosing one of their thousands of servers at random, the user chooses a profile and CyberGhost offers compatible servers based on their needs. For Windows, CyberGhost offers profiles that focus on surfing anonymously, streaming content, and encrypting an unprotected connection. This all falls in line with the Romanian-based company that offers leak protection, lots of security protocols (OpenVPN,

This service is one of the simplest we have seen for installing and connecting on a PC. They have an impressive feature, which will configure your computer to only allow internet traffic to originate through the VPN connection, removing the chance of accidentally connecting directly to a server. If you're looking at getting a VPN for security reasons, then this is a fantastic feature. There is no difficulty in connecting and choosing either a specific, or the fastest, server thanks to the
