ExpressVPN “Just Works” And Does It Very Well

ExpressVPNKey Features

ExpressVPN’s landing page states that is the VPN that “just works” and that sums it up in two words. It is one of the most reputable and long-standing Virtual Private Network providers and has a Trustpilot county of 4.7/5 which speaks for itself. The beauty of ExpressVPN is that it is, at it’s simplest, and install and launch service. Once it is nestling on your device of choice (and more of that later) you can just launch it and it does the rest for you, finding the fastest server, the best protocol, etc.

Founded in 2009, ExpressVPN says it is one of the world’s largest providers of VPN services, enabling users to protect their privacy and security online with just a few clicks. With 3,000+ servers across 94 countries and new servers added each week, ExpressVPN provides a fast connection wherever users are and offers uncensored access to sites and services from around the world.

Surfshark VPN – Premium Power At A Bargain Price

Image liknkedf to Surfshark review.

Although I now use Surfshark VPN, I have been a NordVPN user for many years and I think I still have two or three years’ extended subscription left which demonstrates my commitment to the service.

I was not actively looking for an alternative, but through web browsing various online magazines, I stumbled upon Surfshark and I was intrigued not only by the glowing reviews but by the low price point. Having little else to do one day I downloaded the software and subscribed for two years as part of a special offer and all I can say is wow!

PureVPN is one of the old guard VPN providers, having started life in Hong Kong in 2006 as an experimental VPN before launching a commercial service 12 months later. Unsurprisingly, it has a substantial global reach with more than 2000 servers in forty countries.

As you would expect from its pedigree, PureVPN has a good, no great, listing on Trustpilot with 10,970 reviews of which 86 rate it as excellent and 11 per cent as great. There is a smattering of bad feedback, but it is so minuscule as to be irrelevant.

ProtonVPN – Expensive But Value For Money

Image linked to ProtonVPN review

I am a firm believer that we must protect our online privacy and that the use of a VPN (virtual private network) is an essential tool that people should invest in. In the past, I have reviewed ExpressVPN and NordVPN among others. In fact, before I got this new Dell PC, I used NordVPN on a daily basis. However, since using the new PC, virtually every VPN service I have tried dropped out after a while, and despite excellent help from the customer support team, nothing would resolve the issue.

I went back to try Tunnelbear and that worked perfectly so I bought an annual plan. Then, in recent weeks, came the news that Tunnelbear had been bought out by McAfee. There were, naturally, blog posts etc byTunnelbear saying they would retain their independence, etc. but McAfee is based in the US and part of the Five Eyes snooping partnership and Tunnelbear, despite being based in Canada, would fall foul of US government requests for data.

NordLynx Turbocharges NordVPN

Graphic related to NordLynx article

Privacy is riding high on everyone’s cybersecurity menu and the use of a VPN (Virtual Private Network) is accelerating. One of the drawbacks with VPNs is because by their very nature they travel through numerous routers, there is a speed degradation. For example, without a VPN connection, I am getting just under 30mps but when my VPN NordVPN kicks in that drops to between 23 and 25mps. To me, that is a small price to pay for added security and privacy.

But, just recently, NordVPN has turbocharged itself using a new technology it calls NordLynx.
