    "Not everywhere allows torrenting, but the matter of the fact is torrenting is one of the best ways to get hard to find media. My ISP blocks torrenting, so I needed to find a VPN capable of the large amount of traffic that goes through torrents, and expressVPN has done quite well. Most other VPN's charge a premium for torrenting or flat out don't allow it, but express has been very affordable and welcoming."

    "I am not looking to get into any sort of trouble for watching videos where I am not at. However, there are sites in Japan or in the UK and the access is restricted to the US. Having a VPN would help in a lot of situations so I could watch videos. Hide.me was PERFECT for me. I can watch some good NJPW from Japan and enjoy the UK's humor on shows that I watch from there. Usually the problems would be getting to a place that allows me to watch it, but thankfully Hide.me allows me to do that!"

I used AirVPN to create a VPN that encrypted my internet connection. It let me safely access my torrent site to get the show I wanted without worrying about anyone seeing my connections."

    "Looking to hide your online footprint? Just a quick glance at this and you can tell that a monthly subscription is right out. There are several other programs out there that not only give the user more control but are free. The Onion Router is down right amazing in this sense. Also known as TOR, which seems to be played upon by this want to be program to confuse those who are new to the world of VPNs, it can be deployed from any platform and is insanely easy to set up and operate. So, in summary, I would not settle for a third rate program that is slowly draining money from me when I can have something that is other worldly effective and free."

    "Opera has always been at the top of their game and when I saw they had a free VPN, I had to give it a try. Usually, I am skeptical of free VPNs because they are not very secure. Since this one is from Opera, I knew it had to be legit. So, after giving it a try, I have decided to stick with it from now on. It does everything you would expect from a VPN and is much better than the other free alternatives."
