We all use internet rather liberally but we should be careful. We download illegal music and movies but sometimes that can result in penalties, fines and even some lockup time. If you could hide your identity it would be much safer. The data scraping companies that steal your data and sell it to various companies will also not get a whiff. Protecting your phone with a passcode or fingerprint is not enough, you must be completely anonymous most of the, if not at all, times.
Secondly many games, apps and websites are restricted by countries and areas. If you could somehow get an IP that is of a different location, you can unlock a whole new ocean of content.
For these two primary reasons, you should download a VPN app. There are so many out there, sometimes it is hard to decide.
That is why we have taken the pains to bring you some of the best VPN apps for Android users.
If you are looking for a premium app to take care of all your VPN needs, Express VPN is the way to go. It is THE VPN app as far as some people are concerned. It has got a massive algorithm. It has servers in around 100 countries and offers 30,000 unique untraceable IP addresses. It is as safe as it can get.
The downside is the cost. With $6.70 per month (15 month subscription), ExpressVPN is certainly not cheap. You can find cheaper services than ExpressVPN but better? Very hard to.
IPVanish will give you the most satisfying download speeds of any VPN service – we can guarantee that. It is very fast. It is also feature filled with more than 60 locations and 40,000 IPs. However speed is the best attribute of IPVanish. It is quite user-friendly and well designed.
There is a downside to it – there is no free trial. That does put some users off. But if you are looking to look past that, IPVanish is a great VPN app.
NordVPN is without a shadow of doubt the most secure and airtight VPN system for Android users. It has a unique system of making your data requests go through two different layers of encryption – normal VPNs only use one. NordVPN’s encryption technique is similar to The Onion Routing technique.
The app is affordable. It is easy to use and there is a 24/7 chat support as well. NordVPN is immensely secure as well as it is very well designed with great user interface.
We have discussed VPN apps, some of them had speed other security. VyprVPN is the first app on our list that we think is a nice balance between the two. VyprVPN offers various security protocols such as OpenVPN, L2TP/IPsec, PPTP and Chameleon.
As far as security features are concerned, VyprVPN is a power house. It has more than 700 servers, more than 70 locations and get this: more than 200,000 IP addresses!
TunnelBear is the go to VPN apps for new users. It is simply designed and gets the job done despite missing the power packed features we have discussed above. The best part is that there is a free version of the app that allows you to consume 500MB data per month. In addition to that, there are some very affordable paid subscriptions.
Check it out, it is more than likely that you will fall in love with the adorable bear.
