Picking a VPN

Picking a VPN

Picking a VPN

I just did a free trial from VPN4all.com and was really happy with them but was hoping to get some feedback from other VPN users before I decide what to do next. Any VPN4all users or anyone that has used them in the past on here? Any info would be helpful.  

RE: Picking a VPN

Welcome to tek-tips.

I guess the first question would be, 'what are you trying to do'?  Looking at their website, they want ~$10 USD to provide you a supposedly anonymous surfing connection.  How do you know what happens at the other end of their line?

If you are looking for a means to connect securely from public locations, I would recommend either OPENvpn (*) or even a plain old SSH tunnel.

(*) When I googled vpn4all, it showed a preview claiming it was OPENVpn based, which would not surprise me.  Why pay $10 a month for something you can do for free?
