Best VPNs by category
ExpressVPN comes out on top because it offers fast speeds without compromising on security or privacy. It is the more user-friendly service because dedicated apps are available for almost every platform or device, and you can use multiple devices simultaneously from different locations. Unblock-Us gives you fast connection speeds, but can’t match ExpressVPN’s security and features.
ExpressVPN is a torrent-friendly VPN that supports P2P activity on all its servers. Unblock-Us does not support torrenting, so ExpressVPN is a clear winner in this category.
Both ExpressVPN and Unblock-Us work with Windows, but installing ExpressVPN does not require you to make changes to your device’s settings. Unblock-Us requires you to change your DNS settings, although you can download an app that makes the changes for you.
ExpressVPN and Unblock-Us can both be used with Android devices. However, as with Windows, setup is more complicated with Unblock-Us. There is also the problem that Unblock-Us has performance issues when your connection is over 3G or 4G. The vendor claims that upgrading to the Unblock-Us Virtually Anywhere app and service fixes the problem.
Unblock-Us requires you to make changes to your DNS settings in order for it to work on Mac OS. ExpressVPN is easier to install and does not require any settings changes to get started.
While both ExpressVPN and Unblock-Us work on iOS, you might encounter the same problems with Unblock-Us as you would on an Android device. Namely, the service is not reliable when you are on a mobile network rather than a home or office connection, unless you upgrade to Unblock-Us Virtually Anywhere.
ExpressVPN’s ability to bypass geo-restrictions on US Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming sites, the unsurpassed security of its US servers, and the wealth of other security and privacy features it offers make it a clear winner in this category. Unblock-Us does not consistently unblock US Netflix or similar sites.
