    totally agreed with what you said, selecting VPN is a tricky task be careful and do a little research as per your location, purpose, device etc.

    of course, "my vpn" service is the best

    I just looked at what was out there and where, and how many servers they each have. How each of them charge, etc...

    I picked PureVPN based on my judgment that they "best suited my requirements"

    last year I went through the same situation because I am not from the field of software so I have zero technical knowledge regarding the protocols of a VPN provider and its effectiveness of providing online security. I just advise you to go through all the information before acquiring.

    Why don't you go for NordVPN with which I am completely satisfied myself and using it for 8 months, I was too having security concerns for my android so my friend suggested me to use NordVPN.
    The security of the product is no doubt great which people like me and you always look for. People have fears that high security and great encryption means affecting the overall internet speed. But let me tell you I was quite amazed to see NordVPN as being the great security provider always shows only a minimal effect over internet speed while I stream online.

    How are you establishing the security of the product? How do you know if its secure?

    With the desktop app and a standard VPN, all OpenVPN traffic is 256-bit AES encrypted and uses 2,048-bit SSL keys. DNS leak protection is toggled on by default. Tor over VPN routes traffic first through the VPN, and then through the Tor network, allowing users to access .onion websites and adding a strong layer of anonymity.

    Are you saying that nordvpn route their traffic through tor?????

    That would definitely lead to a noticeable performance issue.

    That sounds like what most good VPN services offer, like ExpressVPN what I use in China. You can do TOR over a VPN if you want, but that's not something I do myself.

    Does anyone rate Hotspot Shield?

    (I've installed the free version, although I haven't yet attempted using public wi-fi)
