If you want to connect a VPN to your smartphone, tablet or laptop and smart TV at the same time then you require a service that allows users to have multiple simultaneous connections. We also consider the level of encryption and security protocols, and whether the team behind the development prioritizes fixing any reported bugs.
NordVPN is one of the most appealing interfaces for desktop applications and is easy to use on smartphones too. It offers a wide range of options, and is perfect for streaming. The speeds are faster than what we’ve seen from other VPNs. There’s a kill button, split tunneling, and AES-256 encryption. A useful feature called Threat Protection blocks trackers, ads and malware.
CyberGhost was another top performer in our tests. It has a large network of servers all over the globe and a variety of torrent-friendly features. It’s fast and has fantastic features, such as split tunneling, which allows certain apps through the VPN while allowing other apps to connect to the Internet directly. There are native apps for Windows, macOS, Android and iOS in addition to the Fire TV app and router compatibility.
Windscribe offers a variety of connectivity options, and the added benefit of being based in Switzerland which means it is not subject to the “fourteen eye” surveillance systems. It comes with a simple but efficient Chrome extension, which makes it a great option for mobile devices.
