StrongVPN is not only expensive, but also offers weak PPTP protocol. Although it works well in China and connectivity speeds are impressive, StrongVPN collects detailed personal information, even when paying using Bitcoin. Browser tracking also puts to question this client’s commitment to online privacy. Hotspot Shield’s free version offers the bare minimum, but its Elite version unlocks a trove of features, including ability to access Netflix, five simultaneous connections and impressive speeds. Although Hotspot Shield uses strong OpenVPN protocol across most platforms except for Linux, it falls short with its evasive data logging practices and cumbersome customer support. While iOS and Android require a third-party OpenVPN app to connect to TorGuard, this client makes up for this shortcoming with its expensive server network, above-average connectivity speeds and P2P downloading, all backed by competitive prices. TorGuard supports five devices and its zero-logs policy attests to its commitment to online privacy.
