Best VPN Services 2019: What’s Safe to Use

Private Internet Access (Popular VPN)

privateinternetaccess.com

Private Internet Access (or PIA) labels itself as the most trusted VPN out there and for a good reason.

PIA may just be the most popular VPN for most Internet users and consistently receives top-notch reviews. In fact, Brian Nadel said on Tom’s Guide earlier in 2018 that PIA was “still the one to beat”.

The wide range of features of PIA is what makes it one of the best VPN services out there. These include, but are not limited to:

  • An above-average number of servers
  • Ad blocking
  • P2P file sharing support
  • Multiplatform and device support
  • Strong encryption
  • Fast connections
  • Servers in nearly 30 countries
  • A great stance on keeping customer information private.
  • Simple user interface

Yet customers report slow speed performance across multiple devices and so do our tests.

Some potential drawbacks to watch for include the fact that PIA is based in the US hence has limited flexibility for specialization of usernames and reloads more than usual.

PIA offers relatively cost-effective browsing privacy for the average Internet user. Pricing starts at $2.91/month for 24 months at a time ($69.95 total), or $6.95 if you want to pay month to month.

Pros (The Good)Cons (Bad)The Ugly
+ Well-know provider– Slow speeds! Company located in 5 eyes jurisdiction
+ No-logs policy– No double hop
+ Low price– Randomly assigned username

  1. The biggest issue that I’ve had with VPNs previously is random disconnections or hang-ups which slow down your ability to navigate online. As somebody who works fast, a buffering screen or slow loading webpage is near hell for me. I have experience with several of the VPNs listed in this review and can moderately recommend PIA for ease of use and generally positive connectivity.

  2. I have tried Nord VPN it works well, But only problem I faced is that it is not secure as they said. It also lags because of the servers are used everywhere I tried free membership it doesn’t give full support but it’s nice to have this VPN in system. It uses secure and the best proxy servers.

  3. I would love to know what you think about WindScribe. I know it’s bad that it’s headquartered in a “5 eyes” country though I don’t know why. If they don’t keep logs, what difference does it make?

    • WindScribe actually has a potential Backdoor which appeared after we tested their setup file with VirusTotal. In addition, they confirm to log last activity timestamps and the total amount of bytes transferred in a 30 day period.. And in the end we never know for sure, these are just claims. A VPN gets extra pointsif their HQ is not located in 5 eyes just for security reasons. We think of it as a risk minimalization 🙂

      PS: We did a review on WindScribe as well. If you are looking for specific info https://www.vpntesting.com/reviews/windscribe/

      I Hope it helps!

      Andy.
