If you’re looking to use a VPN on your tablet, smartphone or laptop, and even your smart TV at the same time it is necessary to use a service which allows users to have multiple simultaneous connections. We also take into consideration the other encryption levels and security protocols, and whether the team behind the development prioritises fixing any bugs it is reported to fix.
NordVPN offers one of the most appealing interfaces for desktop apps and is easy to use on smartphones as well. It provides a broad range of options and is great for streaming. The speeds are faster than the ones we’ve experienced with other VPNs. There’s a kill button, split tunneling and AES-256 encryption. A handy feature called Threat Protection blocks ads, trackers and malware.
CyberGhost is another top performer in our tests, with numerous servers in the globe, and many torrent-friendly options. It also boasts excellent speed performance and amazing features like split tunneling (which connects certain apps through the VPN while allowing others to connect to the internet directly) and an ISP throttle detector. There are native apps for Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS as well as the Fire TV app and router compatibility.
Windscribe offers a huge variety of connections, and has the added benefit of being based in Switzerland and therefore not subject to any of the “fourteen eyes” surveillance programs. It’s a simple and effective Chrome extension, which makes it a great choice for mobile devices.
