All VPNs claim to do the same basic thing, which is to ensure the user enjoys anonymity and security while browsing the treacherous virtual world. The difficulty comes in separating the giants from the gigolos. HMA looks and feels a bit puerile, but its performance soon makes a mockery of anyone judging it on face value. With plentiful servers in hundreds of worldwide locations, HMA offers real security for your virtual underside. Zenmate is a straightforward, no-nonsense setup for the more technologically-challenged user. This is great, but means it does lack some sophistication, such as, limiting server selection to country rather than city. HMA is rather more superior in this field, even enabling users to select the closest server in a country that supports freedom of speech. Hideman is a strong contender, with a versatile product that works on a range of platforms. On the downside, Hideman doesn’t support the kill switch that can enable you to get out of wherever you are as fast as possible in case of a potential threat or leak in the network.
