I use "Opera" browser which has a VPN option built in. Yahoo has no idea what home page to show, usually from a nordic country.

I use PIA and it is pretty good, they delete logs and it is pretty slick on my Apple devices. Unfortunately is was not very good on my recent trip to China but I found a free VPN iDevice app that worked in a limited fashion.

Yep, I use Opera too. Seems to work alright with the VPN, tho it does slow things down a bit. But that's to be expected.

Friend who's an IT-guy was like you can't trust them free ones, that's why I use Nord VPN..

Then Nord VPN themselves got hacked
Not saying the free ones are 100% safe, but then what is if ppl really wanna fuck with you.. They'll fuck with ya

Lots of folks have been presenting their free VPN recommendations so I thought I'd present my recommendation for a paid VPN service, ProtonVPN. They have a free plan, but I have one of the paid plans.

It began as a crowdfunded, encrypted email service called Protonmail. It has remained primarily community funded and developed with community input since founding. They have paid tiers for features, but around the fall holidays (Black Friday and Christmas), they offer great bundled pricing. The email service and VPN service each have free plans with minimal features.

When the features of their paid plans are bundled with their paid, encrypted email plans at holiday pricing, the benefits are worth it for me. Secure, encrypted email with mobile and tablet apps and 2FA. Multiple receiving addresses can be set up and pointed to one inbox or to different inboxes. Emails can be sent from multiple addresses without switching inboxes. For the VPN, their secure core feature allows users to route their traffic through an additional server prior to it leaving the VPN service's network. For example, I route some traffic through the Netherlands and then the UK. Servers are available all over the world. They have mobile and tablet apps for the VPN service too. I set up different profiles for different Netflix countries and for different purposes -Canada is a little fast for me, than the secure core connection through the Netherlands and the UK so I may switch, depending on my activities.

From their site: Our story began at CERN, where the web was born and where our founding team met. In 2014, on the 25th anniversary of the web, we built ProtonMail to make online privacy a reality again for millions of people around the world. The ProtonVPN project was born out of a need to better protect the activists and journalists that use ProtonMail.

Hope this is helpful for someone!

I got the free email from proton. Had just paid for Nordvpn, when i discovered proton. You know how many bits crypto it is? I went for Nordvpn since its very high and many servers. It did work on netflix in the start, but not anymore.

Anyone know any which accept Monero, and are known not to keep/give up logs?

Years ago before my work trip I was looking for a good option of VPN in China and I've found Express VPN. I still use it, anywhere.

Mullvad. You can pay with crypto or cash in envelope if you wish. No identifying information required for sign up. Proton is also good in that it’s secure and hosted in a non 5/9/14 eyes country. Hidemyass is believed to have cooperated with law enforcement. Nord was hacked and data stolen last year. PIA has had their no logs policy tested in court and won. Something to be aware of with TOR and VPNs is that their servers are attractive to hackers as there is a higher percentage of people using them that are up to no good and potential blackmail targets.
