For some people, finding a good VPN can be frustrating. That’s because many of the websites that recommend and “review” VPNs do not base their recommendations on testing results, but instead on dubious marketing claims.
Even worse, these websites are often paid to promote inferior and untrustworthy services. This may sound strange, but it’s quite common. Consequently, people waste time and money as they search for a VPN that actually works well.
All of the VPN reviews on Restore Privacy are based on extensive testing to see how well the VPN protects your privacy and security. Every VPN is tested for IP address leaks (both IPv4 and IPv6), DNS leaks, reliability, speed, and how well the features work. Other considerations include privacy jurisdiction, company policies, trustworthiness, and the track record (background) of the provider.
Below are the top reviews from some of the best VPN services:
