ProtonVPN offers formidable protection against government surveillance thanks to its privacy-friendly location in Switzerland. While this VPN only recently made its entrance into the market, it has managed to impress with some of its features including a strict no-log policy, cross-platform compatibility and support for OpenVPN, the strongest protocol in the market. Its most impressive feature is the Secure Core, which passes traffic through multiple servers to hide users’ IP or location. Although Proton accepts Bitcoin and has a money-back guarantee, it certainly falls to its knees with frustratingly slow customer support. ExpressVPN gives Proton a run for its money with excellent customer service and a no quibbles 30-day money-back guarantee. Express supports most protocols including OpenVPN while its stealth servers are built to bypass firewalls in China. In addition to its DNS leak protection, it also comes with a kill switch feature, Bitcoin support, and will unblock US Netflix.
