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 but don’t depend on it to unblock Netflix. 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 compared to just one for Proton. Whether you are a Mac, iOS, Android or Linux user, both VPNs will offer great compatibility.
