We are all guilty of a crime – the crime is: downloading free music and movies and poking our internet noses where they don’t belong. Let’s admit it, it is a guilty pleasure of every internet user.
However, you must know that while you are online and doing ‘illegal stuff’ on the internet, you are traceable. The best way to hide your identity and location is to use a VPN service.
Moreover, many websites and online games are blocked in some parts of the world. With a solid VPN service, you can get access to scores of content that would be otherwise hidden.
According to a survey by No Hassle Mobiles, these are the two main reasons people use VPN: number one to hide themselves, and number two to access hidden content.
Do you know that there are private hackers and companies that steal your data online and then sell it to multinational corporations? Why are multinationals interested in your activities? – Because they want to know as much as they can about you to sale your product better. It is somewhat harmless but are you comfortable with a snoopy hacker reading your browser history? – of course not.
Here are top six VPN apps we compiled for you.
ExpressVPN is one of the best VPN apps around. It offers you a varied range of services when it comes to hiding your identity. There are more than 2000 services and over 30,000 IPs based in more than 100 countries – ExpressVPN is massive.
There is a large support system as well. Once you subscribe, you can access all the instructions videos. Whatever it is, ExpressVPN has got you covered. The app is slightly more expensive than others, but it is worth it. Also not to mention that it has a free trial and 30 day money back guarantee as well.
ExpressVPN’s speed and technique of encrypting network data has made it a leading VPN app in all corners of the world. The Chinese use it a lot and that is a good indicator of how useful the app must be.
If you are a heavy downloader and use VPN services to download hidden content, you should go for IPVanish. There is no app that comes close to matching its speed. It is without doubt the fastest VPN for Android.
There are some drawbacks such as lack of free trial and pricing might be on the higher side but IPVanish is feature heavy with great speed. So in the end you’ll feel you have got a good bargain.
The design and navigation of IPVanish is particularly good. As the name suggest, it is best known for hiding IP address. It is a plain and simple app and that is why it works so well.
If you are looking for an airtight most secure VPN app then NordVPN is your go to. It has an impressive algorithm. It passes your connection through two different VPN layers. It is called ‘double VPN’.
Android app has a user friendly database. It is also very reasonably priced. There is a free trial as well.
The company also offers a 30 day money back guarantee. That shows the confidence its developers have. They are sure you will like their product. And there is every reason you would.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that NordVPN is another app that allows unrestricted Netflix access.
More than 700 servers, more than 70 locations is impressive. But not as impressive as 200,000 IP addresses. One account supports three devices at a time. This is a very extraordinary set of attributes.
VyprVPN acknowledges the security threats you have when you are browsing online. It has a specialized mechanism that allows you to surf safely and securely. Not only it prevents you from cyber-attacks but also keeps the malware at bay.
We measured VyprVPN’s speed and security and both results came back top-notch. There are both monthly and annual pricing plans. VyprVPN is a truly solid VPN app that servers users on all fronts.
TunnelBear is a simple and clean app that is ideal for new and light users of VPN technology. TunnelBear offers you a simple solution in masking your identity. It takes your IP, hides it and gives you an IP of one of the 20 locations around the world that you can choose.
We really like the design component of TunnelBear. It has a very good interface with some animations and an adorable bear that is enigmatic and full of emotions. TunnelBear is probably one of the best designed VPN apps.
TunnelBear has a free and paid plans. Some people say that speed is an issue if you are using server of an IP located in a far-fetched country to yours. But overall both security and speed are satisfactory.
CyberGhost is an extremely efficient web app for VPN purposes. It is one of the few apps that have access to Netflix and let you serve Netflix posing from different locations – an excellent way to view the entire content on Netflix.
But that is not all that is good about CyberGhost. It replaces your IP address and makes you completely anonymous. Your ISP, government, hackers, companies, data tracers – everyone will be in dark about your web activities. There is a free version and a paid version that is also reasonably priced.
