HMA and NordVPN are two popular VPN providers that offer reliable service and top security features for an affordable price. Both VPNs are easy to set up, and both providers offer strong customer service, though NordVPN gets extra points for providing 24/7 live chat support. For security and privacy, it’s hard to beat NordVPN’s reputation. NordVPN has a strict no-logs policy and is based outside of the jurisdiction of the 14-Eyes alliance, in VPN-friendly Panama. HMA is based out of the UK (part of the 5, 9, and 14 eyes alliance) but since it doesn’t keep logs there isn’t anything to hand over even if a request for information is made. Still, HMA is best known for its minimalist, user-friendly design and wide network of 760 servers around the world. NordVPN takes the lead with 5,000+ servers, but HMA boasts an impressive 190 countries to choose from, compared to NordVPN’s 62. Things are heating up! Read on to find out which VPN comes out on top.
