READING WireGuard VPN review (Ars Technica).


Thanks for sharing, But sadly I had a very bad experience with Mullvad. Actually I have signup Mullvad for streaming but it is very slow.

From 8 months I am using ExpressVPN no doubt it has such an awesome speed. Thanks to this review (https://www.reviewsdir.com/expressvpn-review/) for helping me in choosing ExpressVPN.


Mullvad is the only VPN I can find offering a genuinely 100% anonymous customer signup. Nobody else does this (that I could find of any relatively reliable provenance). Payment options include crypto currency. Global VPN speeds can vary greatly, but I have found it easy in practice to use the multiple location connection options to simply switch to the fastest routes I can find on any given date/time. This way I get really great speeds.

I have had an ExpressVPN service in the past - one of their people once let slip that they monitor user traffic and reported some European based users to the authorities for their online usage. The Mullvad service seems to attract those for whom private VPN usage is most important.


I don’t suggest any vpn or not share what I use. Visit multiple VPN service, check what they are offered, first avail trial period if you satisfied by their service “ok” else try another one. If anyone recommended you any vpn service might be he or she satisfied with its service but you don’t. If you are interested in selecting any VPN so it is the rigt time as many top graded VPNs just come up with exciting Black Friday VPN Deals and you get any of them in much cheaper rates.


avoid those “providers” , use the “streisand” installer on your rental v-server instead. Gives you (essentially) full control.


For OpenVPN, Purism could also adapt the Passepartout app:

Currently it’s only on iOS, but I think one is being built to run on Android so that could be adapted for PureOS. It’s significantly better than the stock OpenVPN app and is provider-neutral.


Err, why would one want to adopt an iOS apo to adopt to a Linux-based technology? :thinking: Linux and NetworkManager and Gnome have perfectly able OpenVPN capabilities…


Mullvad is not as much good as per the expectations, i would suggest to go with industry’s best like expressvpn, nordvpn, cyberghost or surfshark or you can get some advice from thevpnexperts before approaching any top service that what’s the insights regarding that service.


No doubt they are the best vpns you mentioned, but surfshark doesn’t provide Venezuela server as per https://buybestvpn.com/south-america/venezuela/ this guide. I need to access Venezuelan content, need suggestions please.


Enhancing trust requires rethinking consent. Luckily, technical tools are emerging that could allow for a more flexible, tailor-made approach. I choose vpn on the basis of encryption level. Surfshark is the one that intact with dvanced security features.
Surfshark provides unbreakable security features including leak protection, AES 256-bit encryption, Kill switch, other security protocols as well as several other additional features that help you keep your data connections safe and secure.
