It’s as simple as wearing a coat when it rains and boots when it snows – a good VPN should keep you safe and dry during the worst cyberstorm, providing you with leak protection, anonymity and, ideally, a kill switch. Mullvad VPN sets out to do this and, despite being comparatively tiny, manages to get its umbrella up before the rain. Mullvad is simple to the point of being skeletal, however, and its one-size-fits-all pricing package reflects this mindset. Private Tunnel also have an uncomplicated approach to pricing, with their pay-as-you-go concept. Users buy the amount of data they expect to use and top up, as required. Cyberghost is competitively priced, but offers other-worldly standards of protection – more like an oil skin and galoshes where rivals are advocating one-use ponchos and gumboots!
