Surfshark Review: Should we Surf the Internet Ocean with this VPN? (2020)

Surfshark – I was not much aware of this name until I looked it over the internet for VPNs.

Yes, this is a VPN software and it’s cheap, how? Wait a little longer, I will get to this part soon.

You want security on the internet but also do not wish to leave some websites, because they have got your heart. Just kidding! It might be because those websites come up with free stuff. But be cautious – they might be having malware or trackers.

And that’s when the savior of the day “VPN” shows up.

But is Surfshark just like all the other VPNs or does it have something unique for us?

Let’s see what happens if we surf the Internet’s Ocean with this VPN.

Free VPN vs Paid VPN: Which is better? (2020)

If you are strict about any of your online activity, getting a VPN service is inevitable.

The service will create for you a safe, private and encrypted connection on the internet especially connections that are not very secure.

When considering the choice of VPN to use, you will need to research for one that has a solid balance of connectivity protocols, great features and server location.

A VPN service has other great benefits that many users need and hence it is necessary to get an ideal VPN service that will offer you that.

How to choose either a free VPN or a paid VPN

The ultimate choice of whether to get a free or paid VPN will be highly dependent on what you are looking to achieve.

For instance, if you just need a VPN that will give you access to some services like Netflix or to any geo-restricted content then a free VPN can suffice.

However, if you are looking for a more serious VPN that will give you enhanced online security then for sure your only option is to go with the paid VPN.

VyprVPN Review 2020: Pros & Cons using VyprVPN!

One thing I like about the VPN market is the fact that there’s even a market. You’re not limited to one or two options. In fact, you have the opposite problem: there are a ton of VPNs out there.

5 Best HideMyAss Alternatives 2020 (Number #3 is Just Awesome)

If you’re interested in the prospect of VPN technology, or if you have used VPNs yourself, you may have come across HideMyAss!

HideMyAss! is a tremendously popular VPN that was founded in 2005 by a 16-year-old trying to circumvent his school’s internet restrictions, and has been owned by Avast for a couple years (Avast being one of the world’s largest cybersecurity conglomerates).

If you’ve used HideMyAss! you’ve probably liked it. It’s popular because it works well, after all, but nothing’s perfect. And hey, it’s also possible HMA! wasn’t performing up to your expectations.

The VPN market is thriving and there are a ton of options, so no need to be limited to HideMyAss! Here, I’ll take a look at some great alternatives to HMA!

To set these alternatives in the right context, I will briefly address what you might like about HideMyAss! and what you might dislike.

CyberGhost VPN Review 2020 (Our Thoughts After Testing It)

If you’ve looked at lists of top-tier VPNs, you’ll certainly have encountered CyberGhost.

CyberGhost is not the largest or most popular VPN, but it is certainly one of the most acclaimed.

CyberGhost has surprisingly only been around since 2011. CyberGhost has maintained a strong sense of identity as a promoter of internet privacy and freedom.

Yeah, all VPNs say that, I know. Well, CyberGhost was the first VPN company to publish a transparency report, and the entire company is less than a decade old.
So, it might be more than just show with CyberGhost.

And despite not being the most popular VPN in the world, it does support over 20 million users, so surely something is going right.

But hey, you can’t judge off what CyberGhost says about itself. Luckily, I have been using CyberGhost for a little while by now, and I can give you a full rundown of the good, the bad, and the awesome. Let’s get started.

IPVanish VPN Review (2020): Is It Really Fast & Safe? (Lab Tested)

What is IPVanish VPN?

This review tackles, without a doubt, one of the most famous and acclaimed VPN services in the industry right now.

If you’ve been looking into acquiring or changing a VPN service, it’s nearly impossible you haven’t heard of IPVanish.

IPVanish seems like such an established titan that it’s hard to believe it was founded in 2012—seriously, it’s only a few years old!

Even in internet years, that makes it quite young.

So what’s the deal?

Is IPVanish really a rock-star of the VPN world, having shot up so quickly after its founding, or more of a passing fad, bound to be replaced in a year or so?

In this review, we’ll answer that question and more based on my experience with the VPN.

It’s a solid service, but that’s not something I say easily—so let’s roll up our sleeves and dive in!

LimeVPN Review: Easy to use, but with few minor issues

You know, I like LimeVPN—it’s a smaller and lesser known VPN that still gets a decent amount of appreciation from folks like me who like a sturdy underdog.

If you’ve been searching for VPNs, you may have come across this strange “LimeVPN” name. Now, you’ve also probably noticed by now that it hasn’t really shown up in the news. What gives?

Well, let’s just think of it this way: no news is good news. LimeVPN has no controversy. You can look up reviews and you’ll see some good and some bad, like any other service, but there’s nothing newsworthy about what is running smoothly, and this is as true for VPNs as it is for international law.

In this review, I’ll talk about this less famous, underdog VPN in some more detail. There are some weaknesses, but overall, I’m happy to say it’s a worthy candidate for most people.

Sounds good right? Well, let’s find out why.

PureVPN Review: Pros and Cons after 4 Months of using!

It’s 2018. Many of us take it for granted that privacy on the internet is essentially dead, and it’s hard to shake the feeling that only those who are deeply tech-savvy can protect their identity well.

But, the other benefit to today’s technology is that a lot more is available than before. Some of these new things are tools to protect your privacy.

If you’re looking into personal privacy, it’s hard to not come across VPNs.

And if you’re looking into VPNs, it’s even harder to not come across PureVPN.

Arguably one of the most known Virtual Private Networks, PureVPN has even been talked about in the New York Times—author Quentin Hardy describes how it uses “state of the art technology to encrypt internet traffic.”

Sounds good, right? An easy way to be secure online, hooray!

Of course, it’s never that simple. Let’s take a look at how PureVPN really compares to its hype.

Windscribe VPN Review: Pros and Cons after 3 Months of using!

DailyBeast calls it “the online privacy tool you should already be using.”  Techradar calls it “one of the best free VPNs around.” Dig around a little more and you’ll see a lot more praise.

Windscribe has only been around since July 2015, but in the last two years it’s become one of the most acclaimed VPNs around.

Clearly there’s a lot of good buzz about Windscribe, and it’s coming in at the right time.

Its summer 2017, and online security has never been more important. From the Snowden leaks in 2013 to the Russia-Trump stories that dominate the news, cyber security has become an increasingly relevant topic to the climax that is right now.

And if you think cyber security is a big deal for nations, you’d better believe it’s a big deal for you—an individual that is not armed with powerful intelligence agencies for protection.

Sure, you may not have a foreign head of state breathing down your neck…but then again you might. There is a host of parties interested in your data, and even if they’re not, there’s a plethora of reasons to keep your information well protected.
