If you own an iPad, smartphone or laptop and maybe smart TVs that you wish to connect to a VPN at the same time You need a service that lets you have multiple simultaneous connections. We also take a look at the security protocols used by a particular service and encryption levels, and if the development team makes it a point to patch any reported bugs.
NordVPN offers one of the most attractive interfaces for desktop applications and is simple to use on smartphones too. It offers a variety of settings to choose from and is ideal for streaming, offering speeds that top those we’ve seen from similar competitors. There’s also a kill switch split tunneling, AES-256 encryption, and a great feature called Threat Protection that blocks trackers, ads, and malware.
CyberGhost is another top performer in our tests, with the largest network of servers in the globe, with many options that support torrents. It also boasts great speed performance and outstanding features such as split tunneling (which redirects some apps through the VPN while leaving others to connect directly to the internet) and an ISP throttling detector. There are native apps for Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS and a Fire TV app and router compatibility.
Windscribe offers a wide variety of connection options. It also has the added bonus of being based in Switzerland and that means it isn’t subject to the “fourteen eye” surveillance policies. It has a simple and effective Chrome extension, which makes it a fantastic option for mobile devices.
