If you have a smartphone, tablet or laptop, and perhaps smart TVs that you wish to connect to a VPN at the same time you require an option that allows you to connect to multiple devices simultaneously. We also examine the security protocols used by a particular service and encryption levels, and whether the developers make it a goal additional hints to fix any bugs that are reported.
NordVPN’s desktop app has a very attractive interface, and it’s easy to use on mobile devices. It has lots of options to choose from and is great for streaming, offering speeds that are higher than what we’ve seen on rivals. There’s a kill button, split tunneling, and AES-256 encryption. A useful feature called Threat Protection blocks ads, trackers and malware.
CyberGhost was another top performer in our tests. It has a large network of servers around the world and a number of features that allow torrenting. It also boasts a high speed, and boasts amazing features like split tunneling (which routes some apps through the VPN while allowing other apps to connect directly to the internet) and an ISP throttle detection. There are native apps for Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS as well as an Fire TV app and router compatibility.
Windscribe offers a huge variety of connections, and has the added benefit of being based in Switzerland which means that it’s not subject to any of the “fourteen eyes” surveillance systems. It’s a simple and effective Chrome extension, making it an excellent choice for mobile devices.
