NordVPN is fine but I would suggest going with ProtonVPN instead (based in Switzerland, and supports connecting over Tor).

If you're going to use it to access some bitcoin services/exchanges that are banned in your country, then I wouldn't suggest doing so. If caught, your funds will be frozen.

I don't think that that's an important criteria. - (edit: I see - unless of course those services are forbidden in your country.)

If i buy a VPN- i would really focus on two things- speed and logging policies.

Speed is sort of subjectable, which leaves logging policies.

The only VPN i think which has gone to and through court over their no-log policies, and held up their end, is, as far as i know-  PIA. (But they recently got new ownership which i think is a bad thing), so i wouldn’t necessarily recommend them anymore..

NordVPN is apparently audited by various reputable firms (not sure how credible this is.), so, if you trust them, i guess NordVPN wouldn't be a bad choice either.

Different people have different opinions, in my opinion the best VPN I use right now is a HMA with a 2 year license, in my opinion the HMA is fast and the GUI is minimalist. also the size of the application is also relatively small.

I think HMApro is a good VPN because there are many choices of up to hundreds of IPs available.
Buy with one year can satisfy you. Wink Wink

How long have you been using the paid HMApro? like I was interested and wanted to use the VPN to do things or access the internet.

ExpressVPN is one of the top recommendations with no log. They even have a 30-days money back guarantee.

Do you know the difference between ExpressVPN and HMApro? which one is more efficient?
And I just checked ExpressVPN using bitcoin in payment.

I've been using ExpressVPN for a few years now, and never had any issues with it. It is fast, reliable, and what's very important to me is that  they have great customer support, basically 24/7 live chat. Using it on PC, mobile phones (both android and iOS) and TV. Works like a charm.

I've tried several others top VPN services like NordVPN, but none proved to be on ExpressVPN level. It is more expensive than competition though, 100 USD for 1 year, but i think it's worth the money. And they accept BTC as payment option.

I recommend Astrill VPN they have a lot of servers from different countries, different protocols, etc. they have a plan now which is $10 per month and most importantly they accept bitcoin as payment. Also they have 7 days trial, try it first before paying.

It depends on the reason for your use? If you are looking for speed then NordVPN will be a good choice due to his good reputation.
I do not trust many VPN operators of these services, especially Vypr vpn, Cyberghost vpn. You can read some comments on this topic[1].
Same for PIA which I used it  Grin.
If the purpose is to use it on any exchange platform (Not recommended option,) the best one is PIA.

That depends on reason you use VPN? Some VPN are fine if you only want to mask your real IP or circumstance censorship by your country.
If you have serious privacy and security concern, you might want to check this website which compare VPN from various aspect https://thatoneprivacysite.net/#simple-vpn-comparison

While most people recommend NordVPN, take note that they were hacked once[1] and use unethical way to circumstance service which blocks VPN connection[2]

Have a look at this article before choosing your VPN provider. I think it is important to know what 5 Eyes, 9 Eyes, 14 Eyes means in terms of privacy.
https://restoreprivacy.com/5-eyes-9-eyes-14-eyes/

5 Eyes refers to 5 big countries who formed an international surveillance alliance. They spy, collect, and share data among each other. The big Five Eyes countries are

1. Australia
2. Canada
3. New Zealand
4. United Kingdom
5. United States

This alliance was later widened to 9 Eyes with the addition of Denmark, France, Netherlands, and Norway. Now we have 14 Eyes...
The article suggests to avoid privacy and security oriented services from countries that are part of the alliance and use alternatives.

If you read the article you will see a list of suggested VPN and email providers that are suitable to use.

Or if you need a VPN with dedicated IP, you can make your own with OpenVPN and a small VPS plan  Wink

Would be probably cheaper than any VPN with dedicated ip plan on the market and you can manage your server yourself  Wink

Many VPN with dedicated IP costs under $5, but it's not easy to find VPS with costs under $5 these days. Rent a VPS and use it as your own VPN is more suitable for those who can't trust VPN provider.

Where are you starting out ?  Do you need to use VPN with this forum ? There is no need to use vpn and you can access this forum without any worry with your own original IP.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


By the way, I am also looking to find a VPN which is free of cost and good too. Is there any out there ?

You can find this comparison guide helpful in choosing right VPN for you:
https://thatoneprivacysite.net/#detailed-vpn-comparison

PS
There is NO free of cost good VPN and there will never be something like that, but you can find good VPN deals on internet.
