On August 19th, the International VPN Day is celebrated, an event that highlights the right to privacy, security, and digital art. VPNs (short for “Virtual Private Network”) allow users to browse the Internet risk-free while offering a range of wonderful advantages.

With a VPN, not only will you be safer by protecting your internet connection, but you can also access blocked sites in your region or access content not available in your country, as often happens with Netflix titles and other streaming platforms.

Do you want to celebrate International VPN Day with us? We present to you our 5 favorite VPNs so you can decide which one suits you best.


NordVPN is one of the most popular VPNs, providing you with multiple layers of protection without sacrificing your beloved internet speed.


Its biggest advantage is that it can connect to a multitude of servers worldwide, making your connection anonymous. And if your connection to this VPN were to fail, you would only need to press the disconnect button to quickly log out.


ExpressVPN is another well-known VPN brand in the industry. Using Trusted Server technology, any data you share while connected to this VPN will be completely secure.


Because all servers you connect to with ExpressVPN operate on RAM, you won’t have to worry about any trace of you remaining after you finish using it, as RAM is wiped clean each time a device is restarted.


Atlas VPN is an excellent free VPN that allows you to connect to three different servers depending on your location.


Although it has fewer features than NordVPN and ExpressVPN, its connection has no speed limits. It is also capable of unblocking geo-restricted websites, as well as blocking ads, suspicious websites, and phishing links.

Surfshark VPN

Surfshark VPN is one of the most cost-effective VPNs you can subscribe to. Its monthly price is one of the lowest in the market, and you have the option to get your money back within 30 days if you’re dissatisfied with the service.


One of its greatest features is the ability to mask your IP address behind multiple locations, rather than just one; this way, anyone trying to spy on you would have a very hard time.


RoboVPN is an excellent VPN that allows you to access blocked or unavailable content in your location. Its usage will not affect your PC’s performance at any time, so you can leave it running in the background while you engage in other activities.


It also allows you to hide from third parties when connecting your device to public Wi-Fi networks, ensuring safer browsing and avoiding potential security issues.
