VPNs are internet security tools allow you to browse the internet without fear of other people being able to access your information, or see what you are looking at. Particularly vital if you regularly connect over public Wi-Fi. Here are our five favorite VPNs.

TunnelBear (Window|Mac|Android)

TunnelBear is one of the easiest VPNs on our list to set up and use. A popular and well-known service, it is available for desktop, mobile, and as a browser extension. The downside is that they only offer 500MB of browsing for free, which runs out pretty quickly for most of us.

The 5 best VPNs

Hotspot Shield Elite VPN (Get Here)

Our second pick in the “ease of use” category is Hotspot Shield Elite VPN. Hotspot is compatible with both mobile and desktop devices, and with one click, gives you secure access to servers in over 20 locales, including USA, UK, Japan and Germany. While it isn’t free to use, Hotspot VPN is still relatively affordable compared to the other options

proXPN VPN (Get Here)

If you have the need for speed, ProXPN blew us away with some of the highest speeds we’ve seen. But it’s not just quick: it also features a 512-bit Encryption Tunnel and a 2048-bit Encryption Key.

SecureLine VPN (Window|iOS|Android)

Avast, with its SecureLine VPN app, is one of the more recognizable names in the VPN sector. Though you do have to pay to access its secure network, the service it provides is fast, reliable, and anonymous. With it IPSec technology, SecureLine makes you practically invisible.

ZenMate (Chrome|Firefox|iOS|Android)

The German based ZenMate is one of the best when it comes to VPNs. The service stores no information about your usage (German laws doesn’t allow it), it is reliable, and trusted by an ever growing user base. It is paid, but offers a 7-day trial so you can see if it is a good fit.
