Signed up with PIA Last night. Now having a hell of a time setting up the router to do what I want. OpenWRT and Linux in general are definitely not my areas of expertise. Neither is networking for that matter.

 

Speaking of PIA, I just found this article https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-providers-no-logging-claims-tested-in-fbi-case-160312/
which talks about the FBI demanding usage info about a user. Unfortunately for the FBI and the company trying to stop someone, PIA hold no usage logs.

I'm on PIA as well.

 

No hiccups here.

 

 

Looks like I'll need a new router as well if I want to use popcorn time on my old Kodi laptop....

I've been using BTGuard (https://btguard.com/) for years now. I find it really good. Never had speed issues and it has always been reliable.

 

When I looked, I looked for one whose HQ wasn't US based and who didn't keep logs.

 

Price is pretty reasonable as well.

I just can't go past Hide.Me for both their good software, instant support and their 'Correct' countries\laws.

I dont care what they say, 5 eyes countries with 'No Logs' is bullshit. Just because THEY'RE not keeping logs.

 

 

I don't fucking know why I care, I don't DO anything ILLEGAL!! It's just the fucking tinfoil hat seeping into my braaaaaain

I've been using IVPN. It's easy to set up. You literally just enter your username and password and in a couple of seconds you're connected. It's also very fast, the fastest I've used. If you pay by the year it's $100 US, by the month it's $15 US. I'm really happy with it so far. I'm thinking of giving HIDE.ME a try once my current month runs out, but I can't see it being much better than this. I'm just curious to see if it is in fact faster, as that's what they're claiming.

 

I should add that they have very reputable reputation from what I've read about them.

I use Vyprvpn they are one of oldest and best provider in speed and security, however they are not cheap.. some sites like vpntrends.com give positive reviews to HMA or Purevpn but they seems shady..

Why do they seem shady?

 

I'm still looking at hide dot me as the top of the list so far....

Because some reviews claim purevpn is scam and not refund money on request when not satisfied with their service, asking you to provide ID or passport which is crazy. Also they have slow servers, connection drops.. maybe they are cheap but most likely not good. I would add nordvpn they seems to be very popular recently

You can always roll your own which is less likely to get detected in the usual vpn sweeps. A remote linux system to act as a linux node, any webhost can offer this and some even take bitcoin for extra anonymity. A SSH tunnel via putty with some facility for SOCKS forwarding on the client to said remote system provides a way to hide the handshake packets. Then run an openvpn server on the remote system and have the openvpn client run to 127.0.0.1:XXX, where XXX is the forwarded socks proxy port on the ssh tunnel. This is the only way I've managed to get proper VPN access through the great firewall anyway. All someone snooping in can see is a bunch of double encrypted traffic.

Very true :)

 

I ended up with the above one I mentioned.

Its stupid quick.

 

If I set my location BEFORE starting a download (like driver packs from HP, with servers in Taiwan) then its WAY quicker to use it. Brilliant service.

I agree with the previous users and propose you to try nordvpn, as I’ve been using it for a long time, and haven’t faced any problems. Actually I used it for watching Netflix when I was abroad, and it really worked. Besides, the speed is always great. Probably the price is rather high, but it is worth it.

Of course, the choice depends on you, but I’d like to focus you on such features of vpn as the number of servers, the location of the servers, the speed connection, the type of encryption, the users’ feedback.

Joyous to know about these vpn recommendations. There are many tech review sites which give unbiased reviews about different vpn service providers. These sites really helped me in finding out best vpn service providers and using one among them.

Don't connect your facebook to skype. If you really care about your privacy, I can suggest to use web-version of skype with VPN. You can read about it on this site http://topsecur.com/vpn/free-vpn/ if you want to understand more about the Internet-privacy

There are a lot of great VPNs on market, but I found information on this Topvpnchoice site, which lists the ratings and reviews of the most popular VPN services, read reviews and decided to choose TunnelBear. TunnelBear application knows everyone who has ever tried to change the IP. It is very simple and automated, with almost no settings. And most important for me is free app )))
The list of countries is very wide. The interface of the application is unusual and creative.

I've been using https://www.privateinternetaccess.com for a while now - have never had a glitch and at $39.95US a year not too costly.

 

No Log files kept, multiple exit points, OpenVPN, PPTN, IPSEC/L2TP, SOCKS5 proxy.

Up to 5 devices simultaneously.

 

I ended up with these guys too.

 

I just signed up with these guys as well, seem pretty solid.

I switched to Private Internet Access a while ago because my provider got really slow and awful.

 

Been happy with them. Speed is usually great and absolutely nil issues with setup or ongoing support.
