Browse securely using ProtonVPN: Best New VPN

0

Other than Tor, one of the best ways to protect your privacy online is by using
a VPN (Virtual Private Network). ProtonVPN, from the company behind the privacy-focused ProtonMail, is free and designed with security as its main focus. To ensure your browsing can’t be compromised, ProtonVPN secures your connection with the highest strength encryption, and doesn’t record anything you do, so there are no logs or tracking to worry about.

 Like most free VPN tools, ProtonVPN has some restrictions to be aware of: it limits the number of countries you can pretend to be browsing from to just three, throttles your connection speed and only allows you to run it on one device. If you require more privacy and security features, you can upgrade to one of the paid-for plans.

The Basic version costs $4 (around £3)a month and ups ProtonVPN’s speed. It also gives you access to all countries and can be run on two devices. The Plus version costs $8 (£6)
a month, can be run on five devices and offers some powerful privacy features
including Secure Core, which redirects your traffic through privacy-friendly countries such as Switzerland and Iceland.

It also lets you route all your traffic through the Tor anonymity network with a single click. You get a seven-day trial of this version with the free download.

If you’re not that worried about security, the free version of ProtonVPN will no doubt suit your needs adequately, although due to demand free users are requested to sign up to
the waiting list to be notified when a download slot becomes available.
