I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that every other company seems to be a VPN company these days. And why not? Privacy is on everyone’s mind these days, with good reason. There are a ton of VPN apps on the App Store, and I’ll share five of them here. I’ve used three of them personally, and I’ll share two with good reputations. And don’t worry, none of these companies have ever contacted me or paid me to be included in this list.
This article has been updated with new information and a new VPN.
After having used Private Internet Access for a year or two, I switched to ProtonVPN for most of 2020. I picked ProtonVPN because I was already using ProtonMail and they offer packaged-deals with both services. I also believe Proton has good privacy practices track record. There are paid and free versions of ProtonVPN, and the limited free version is subsidized by paid users, so there is no compromise of “If it’s free, how will we make money?” I wish I could use custom DNS servers with the VPN, but that also increases the chance of DNS leaks. ProtonVPN starts at 48€ (US$56).
