Privacy and Anonymity: Top 3 VPNs in 2020

A VPN encrypts the data traveling to and from your device via a secondary server over a more secure channel. One of the main and easiest ways to keep your information secure and getting access to blocked websites in your region. Using a VPN for data encryption is a common practice now; people use it even if they are not aware of the technicalities of it. VPNs usually trick your devices into thinking that they are in a different location. 

The following list is compatible with almost all major internet providers including, Cox
or AT&T etc. However, it is crucial that whatever internet connection you sign-up for, you choose the
best. We recommend Cox high-speed internet plans as Cox gets you a stable internet through a cable. I
have tested these VPNs on the following criteria and they all surpassed others in these criteria:

  • Solid encryption
  • Unperturbed Speeds
  • By-passing Geo-restrictions
  • Good Customer Support

Our Top Choice: Express VPN

Express VPN is known in the market for being an all-rounder, be it providing privacy, unblocking websites or boosting speed, Express VPN does it all. It also outshines many others when it comes to speed tests, superior customer service, and a month-long money-back guarantee. It runs smoothly on almost any platform. It offers exclusive access to 3000+ servers located across the world in 160 unique locations and 94 countries. When it comes to offering great live customer support, Express VPN is there for you 24/7. 

With pros, there come cons, and in the case of Express VPN honestly, there aren’t many to speak of. Express VPN has fewer number of simultaneous connections supported in their basic plan, however, if you are okay with the premium price tag, then it has the ability to support 5 connections simultaneously. The cherry on top? A no-questions-asked money-back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied with the service you’re getting. 

  1. IPVanish

IPVanish is another strong contender in the test. This one too has impressive numbers to boast, including over 40,000 shared IPs, with 1300+ servers located in almost 70 countries and unlimited P2P traffic. It supersedes Express VPN in terms of the number of devices supported simultaneously by raising that bar to 10 devices. It offers 24/7 customer support to help you get through the process of understanding its usage. 

The best part was when we tested it, the servers were always online with impressive download speeds and supported torrents. One of the users managed to Unblock BBC iPlayer and US Netflix. 

Some of the cons that we came across included a few of the servers not being in the locations they were advertised to be in. Also, if you think you need at least 10 simultaneous connections then IPVanish is the way to go, however, if you aren’t satisfied with the service then you are covered by a 7-day money-back guarantee. 

  1. Surfshark

This is one of the fastest options available in the list of available VPN connections. It is one of the most reasonable ones when it comes to monetary expense. Surfshark is based in the British Virgin Islands comes with a youthful yet laid-back brand positioning.

Surfshark supports unlimited devices, making it the star feature of the service. Its 1000+ servers are located in over 60 unique locations with internet connectivity which is fast more often than not. It also comes with a kill switch which protects your details from getting leaked in case of connectivity failure. It makes accessing your Netflix account from abroad, a piece of cake. 

Surfshar comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, offering you ample time to test it before going for a long term commitment. Some of the reasons that make it a little risky are the android app fluctuating sometimes and the interface features being a little basic as compared to its more advanced counterparts. In short, it still is a good value for money.
