Which VPN is better?

ExpressVPN and Unblock-Us VPN take very different approaches to securing your internet connection. While ExpressVPN is a traditional VPN that changes your IP address by routing your connection through a secure server, Unblock-Us requires you to change the DNS settings on your device itself and then routes your connection through a proxy server. While this means that Unblock-Us VPN doesn’t affect your connection speed, it also means that you won’t have most of the security features you would expect from a VPN, including a kill switch, AES encryption, and your choice of tunneling protocols. Meanwhile, ExpressVPN offers all those features, as well as exceptional speeds. One apparent advantage of the Unblock-Us approach is that you don’t need to manually switch servers to gain access to regionally specific content. However, there is no guarantee that you will actually be able to create a secure connection and unlock the content you want. With ExpressVPN, you know exactly where you are connecting, that the connection is secure, and that you can access all your favorite streaming services and websites.

 The Bottom Line

ExpressVPN is the clear winner here in terms of both overall performance and value for your money, particularly with long-term subscription plans. Unblock-Us VPN does have good things to offer if privacy is your main concern – especially since the company’s move to Barbados, known to be a privacy-friendly country. However, if you are looking for top-quality privacy protection and network security, then ExpressVPN is hard to beat. It provides speed, exceptional features, and the ability to unblock almost any content. And unlike Unblock-Us, ExpressVPN supports torrenting across its network. Furthermore, ExpressVPN operates from the British Virgin Islands, safely beyond Five-Eyes jurisdiction.
