vpn choice
« on: August 11, 2018, 01:32:12 PM »
I'm thinking of trying a VPN.  Up to now, I've never used a VPN service.  I have avast AntiVirus installed on one system and avast offers their VPN service for only $1.99/mo, billed at $23.88/yr, and they offer slightly lower cost for subscribing for 2 or 3 years. And, it covers up to 5 devices (PC, Mac, Adroid, and iOS). So, the cost is low but a review at https://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2420857,00.asp only gives it a 3-star, or Good, rating.  Just wondering whether anyone can comment on their experience with any of the VPN services.

I am under the impression one shortcoming of avast SecureLine VPN is a small number of servers/locations, compared to some of the other VPN services, and that fact could result is slower speeds than services running more servers at more locations.

Mark.

if you're thinking of just VPN'ing browser traffic, Opera comes with a free VPN built-in which I thought was OK until I stumbled upon this article; https://www.vpnanalysis.com/worst-vpns/
