    Secure your data and hide your IP address behind a bear.

    I've got two mac minis, a macbook, two iphones, an ipad, and an android in the house. They all run TunnelBear seamlessly and easily. Even my kids know how to turn it on. For that, plus the low price ($50/year/5 devices), it's amazing.

    I use TunnelBear on my desktop and mobile. Amazing interface, incredible support team PLUS they're passionate about improving privacy and security globally which is key.

    I'd recommend TunnelBear.
    • A great VPN that takes it's security seriously but the monthly pricing is overly expensive with no justification other than to make the yearly plan look better.

    • Ben MunsonDesign Director at Stop, Breath & Think

      VPNs are not as secure as we think. Be careful using passwords and other identifiable information through companies that may not have the same security interests as you do.

    Private Internet Access

    $40/yr VPN w/ unlimited bandwidth & worldwide gateways

    Has always been reliable for me with very good policies and a fair price.

    So far I still use and recommend PIA. Their security encryption and handshakes are already good but they also allow you to turn that up a dial if you're really serious. It's good for torrenting and they don't log any data. Lots of servers to connect to and can auto-enable it on mac login or on/off as you please. Also for reference and to do your own research - I present the best VPN comparison list ever made: https://docs.google.com/spreadsh...

    The price is great and it's easy to install. Stays constantly on my Android work phone without problem and almost always on my personal iPhone. Only real downside is that it isn't the "prettiest" but that's not important.

    Cloak 3.0

    A VPN for iOS. Browse safely on public WiFi.

    Cloak is my personal favorite. Only available on Mac/iOS/iPad. Super easy to use. You can also set it to auto protect you if it detects an insecure network. I like that I can use the same account for both my laptop and my iPhone. I generally use it when I travel. You can either have an unlimited subscription or buy passes only for when you need it.

    Cloak is just the best. I love the automatic switching on/off, so when I'm on an insecure network (like my school's) it just switches on, circumvents the internet filter, and encrypts my traffic. The iOS app is super easy too 💯

    Cloak is effortless (A+ UX) and boasts an amazing UI. The way it automatically switches on makes security a part of my everyday life (take that, data-sellers!). All of my Apple devices are united under my account and protected, just like 1Password. Can't imagine life without it.

    The only caveat to opera is that it is owned by a Chinese company?

    I love Opera VPN. Simple service and cutting the crap aside. They have an android version too! It's an awesome tool for mobile devices.

    I really like Opera in general, and their free unlimited VPN on iOS is 💯

    Love how it "blocks" internet traffic when there's an interruption of the IP connection. Then it safely resumes! There are many sources for a secure connection outside the US as well.
    I have used a number of VPN platform with various levels of success but Express VPN has always been solid, it runs on all of my devices and computers and is simple and trouble free, I don't even have to think about it. Most importantly, if there's a connection problem it does not leave your connection exposed the way that many many of the products I have used previously do.

    I use Betternet for my laptop as Opera VPN is not available for laptops. Betternet provides only 2 servers that is US and UK but fulfill my needs. They have a paid plan too which has other servers.
  8. Easy to use, great interface, competitive price. multi-platform, unlimited server switching, unlimited data transfer.
    Indeed. Ivacy is the best VPN I have used so far.
    Best VPN i have ever used, Simple and interactive UI, Good speed and different purpose help he easily unblock the content

    One stop shop to find out how to stay private on the internet. EDIT: I added this as a recommendation because I saw a lot of US and other certain countries based VPN's. These VPN's could be gag ordered and data mined. I would suggest choosing a VPN outside of these places.

    VyprVPN is the only one I used. It ain't cheap but delivers great values with unparalleled internet speed and really painless UI. The ease of use is a big plus.

    If you don't mind self-hosting it, Pritunl is an exceptional tool for managing multiple OpenVPN servers. It's dead-simple to install and configure!

    Get a new virtual card for every transaction

    Daniel GreenbergMaking weird internet · Written
    While this is not a VPN, it acts the same way but for more important information (PAYMENT INFO) Plus it is free
    • Chad WhitakerProduct Designer at Product Hunt 👋

      Privacy.com is perfect for free trials. No more setting a calendar reminder to cancel your account.

      Just create a burner card with a $1 limit, and the whole cancellation process will work itself out. 😬

    • I really recommend this for everyone. This is how online payments should be - easy to checkout, automatic notifications on spend, easy to close down cards, and they're starting to give cashback!

    Using this VPN service for half a year. Like the simplicity of it. Also it is available for many devices not only Mac/PC.
