    "I'm really paranoid about my privacy and I always use a VPN when going online. After extensive research, I found that ExpressVPN has been consistently ranked as one of the best VPNs so I decided to try it. It's easy to use and it hasn't failed me so good!!"

      "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."

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!"

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.
