    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.

    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.

    Using this VPN service for half a year. Like the simplicity of it. Also it is available for many devices not only Mac/PC.
    NordVPN has proven to be a fantastic VPN tool (for downloading, etc.). Every here and there they offer a super discount on their products.

    I love IPVanish because it's straightforward; includes configurations for OpenVPN (TCP), OpenVPN (UDP), L2TP, and PPTP; temp. connection logs are deleted regularly; no bandwidth or device limitations (but has a 2 simultaneous connection restriction); and the customer service team is available 24/7.
