Both ProtonVPN and PIA have made great strides to stay ahead of the pack. Located in Switzerland, which is outside the 5-Eye and 14-Eyes, Proton offers protection from government surveillance. PIA is equally serious about security with its wide array of protocols including OpenVPN and standard AES-256 encryption. Proton’s best feature is arguably the Secure Core, which hides users’ IP and location. Proton will not keep logs, either. With a no-log policy, Bitcoin, and robust encryption, PIA has a firm grip on online security. Boasting servers in over 20 countries, PIA will bypass firewalls in China. Both PIA and Proton make a good impression with their average speeds but PIA takes the lead with its support for five simultaneous devices. Proton offers five simultaneous connections too, but only if you upgrade to its Plus plan (basic accounts get three). Whether you are a Mac, iOS, Android or Linux user, both VPNs will offer great compatibility.
