The best VPN services for 2020

Welcome to the CNET 2020 Directory of VPN providers. In this directory, we’re taking a look at a few of the very best commercial VPN service providers on the internet like ExpressVPN, CyberGhost, IPVanish, Hotspot Shield, Private Internet Access and others. Rather than looking at the wide range of free providers, which often have a lot of limits (and dubious loyalties), we’re looking at those vendors that charge a few bucks a month but put your interests first — instead of those of shadowy advertisers and sponsors. We’ve looked at more than 20 factors, including number of server locations, client software, dedicated and dynamic IP, bandwidth caps, security, logging, customer support and price. fast VPN

Let’s look at each of our vendors below in a little more depth. Keep in mind that this is an evolving list: We’re actively working on more testing and research, and expect this list to change throughout the year.

Editors‘ note, November 1: The NordVPN entry on this list has been updated to reflect the security issue that was disclosed by that vendor in October 2019.
ExpressVPN consistently proves itself one of the fastest VPNs on the market, and actively promotes their commitment to privacy. The company tells us their network is powered by TrustedServer technology, which ExpressVPN built to ensure that there are never any logs of users‘ online activities.

We like the quality of their setup guides, and the detailed information in their FAQ. The ExpressVPN gained points from us for their support of Bitcoin as a payment method. The company offers a useful kill switch feature which prevents network data from leaking outside of their secure VPN tunnel in the event the VPN connection fails.

The company has been in business since 2009, and has a substantial network of fast VPN servers spread across 94 countries. Their best plan is priced at just $6.67 per month for an annual package which includes 3 months free.
A big win for IPVanish is the fact that the company keeps zero logs. Zero. We also like the company’s stance towards privacy. They even provide support to EFF, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit at the front lines of protecting online privacy.

A unique feature of IPVanish, and one we’re very intrigued by, is the VPN’s support of Kodi, the open-source media streaming app that was once known as XBMC. Any serious media fan has used or built Kodi or XBMC into a media player, and the integrated IPVanish Kodi plugin provides access to media worldwide.

At $4.87/month and $58 for a year, they’re obviously trying to move you towards their yearly program. We’re a little disappointed that they only allow a 7-day trial, rather than a full 30-days, but they do offer a full money-back guarantee. That said, the company gets kudos for their recent increase from five to now ten simultaneous connections. We also liked their connection kill switch feature, a must for anyone serious about remaining anonymous while surfing.When comes to the issue of online privacy and security, we suggest to use a VPN, and our recommendation is RitaVPN.Qwer432
