Ever thought about the reason public WIFI is free? An Internet plan in the US costs about 60 dollars a month or 20 dollars in India. This means using free WIFI comes with certain risks. Public wifi is prone to data breaches more often than private or home WIFI. By connecting to a VPN, you can access public wifi without the fear of getting hacked. Let’s look into some best VPNs available in the market now.

What does a VPN do?

A VPN hides your IP address by redirecting to through a remote server set by the host. In layman’s terms, if you live in us and have turned on your VPN, it’ll redirect your IP address to UK or Ireland, etc depending on the location you choose on the app. By doing this the VPN ensures that ISP and other third parties can’t see your browser history and access your data. Now that we have established the definition of VPN here are the best VPNs in the market.

Given the volume of options available, after careful review, we have selected 3 VPN’s that we believe are the best (2 normal VPNs, 1 Budget/Cheap VPN).


ExpressVPN


Found in 2012, ExpressVPN has been in the VPN market for a while. Their privacy policy is as ironclad as it could get. Instead of making naive promises about how secure your data is, their website goes into great detail explaining what data they do and do not collect from you. Their 24/7 customer support service is responsive to user queries, any issues/complaints are usually resolved within a day.

NordVPN

NordVPN has over 6400 servers across 59 countries. While not as fast as some of its competitors like ExpressVPN, NordVPN is one of the fastest out there. Akin to ExpressVPN, NordVPN is secure, they recently ran an external audit

of their privacy policy. Based on our experience, NordVPN has a fairly decent customer support service, our issues and complaints would be resolved within 2 days.

Tunnel Bear


While Nord and Express offer the best services, if you are slightly strapped for cash or looking for cheap reliable services, you ought to look no further than tunnel bear. With over 20 servers across many countries(like the US, UK, Spain, Germany), TunnelBear offers a bang for your buck. Based on our initial assessment, tunnel bear is surprisingly fast for its price. At $ 3.33 per month, it is inexpensive compared to the likes of Express and Nord. Also, their privacy policy is Pretty robust.

Overall Best VPN


After careful consideration, we have declared NordVPN to be the best VPN available. It’s cheaper than ExpressVPN and pretty much does everything express does and more. But if you are looking for a budget VPN, you should consider tunnel bear
