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!
