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.

Pros:

Easy to Use

Cons:

Americans may want to avoid VPNs made in Russia

This is awesome for people outside of the US. Pretty much everyone that I knew when I lived in Canada was using some service like this to appear in the US periodically. Either to watch Netflix/Hulu or videos on NBC. I even used it in SF to appear to be in Canada so I could get better streams for the Olympics. This seems much more user friendly.

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.

Pros:

Great interface

Cons:

Expensive monthly

To be fair, most VPN services do that. It has become an unfortunate industry standard. I've yet to see a VPN service with an affordable monthly plan that doesn't feel like a waste of money compared to yearly plans' per-month rates.

very useful app for VPN service

Pros:

quick and easy set up. very intuitive UI

Cons:

initial connection takes some time.
