No. It's just cheaper. That's literally the only advantage of using PIA, besides supporting the company. I understand Reddit loves PIA but most people have no idea what they're talking about.
NordVPN comes with better security (double hop VPN servers), better ad block (PIA MACE a very limited ad blocker, no customization and it's less efficient than CyberSec from NordVPN), better support (NordVPN has live chat support, 30 day money back quarantee, PIA has notoriously bad support
Edit: PIA Is not a bad VPN by any means but this bandwagoning is getting ridiculious. Downvotes just prove my point.
VPN's themselves are fine. Using FREE VPN's is not fine. Nothing is free.
There are plenty of reputable and quite good VPN services out there. I use NordVPN myself and have zero issues whatsoever. Speed is great, my tracks are covered, and I can access region restricted content. It's affordable, safe, and indispensable.
Anymore, you're foolish for not using a VPN. Just make sure that you use a legimate one. Any kind of "Free" VPN is stealing your data, has shit speeds, or worse.
If you want an exhaustive list of VPNs and how they compare to each other, I would highly recommend checking out , specifically the VPN Comparison Chart. There is a more detailed and advanced version of the chart but the simple one will suffice for non-advanced users.
NordVPN user here. It's pretty solid. I use their desktop app but I use OpenVPN app on Android with their ovpn config files. (No particular reason, android app wasn't ready back when I set it up) I'm happy with the performance at both ends. Some servers perform better than others but there is an incredible amount of selection when it comes to servers. I'm really happy with it.
Honestly you won’t get a great VPN that provides lifetime subscription and everything you are hoping for. I personally use NordVPN and it has treated me well, decent speeds, plenty of servers, no logs etc. and not terribly expensive. Main thing about Nord is it resides in Panama, accepts Bitcoin, and does not require any personal info. Obviously there are numerous options but the good/great ones will not provide a lifetime subscription.
For some other possible options and privacy in general use the wesbite for info.
My favorite so far is NordVPN, and their price isn't bad if you go annual. If you're of the *nix persuasion, you'll have to do the usual setup, but they do provide the config to import.
Additionally, making sure your VPN has DNS leak protection is important, because if it doesn't there's still a way for your ISP to see what you're doing. NordVPN does have this, but there are some paid ones that do not, so it's important check that out first.
I've had pretty good experiences with NordVPN so far. They have a constantly updated list of servers that work with US-Netflix, it's a little annoying having to pick a specific server every time but it always works.
Hard to say which is the best. If you want quality, go for a paid option. I've tried many services. Currently I'm using NordVPN and I'm happy with it. They offer quality VPN with many options for a fair price. I don't use the android app since it lacks the option to not route local network traffic. But besides that, NordVPN is a reliable choice.
NordVPN. I bought like 3 years at $2.75/month and you can run it on like 5 devices simultaneously or something like that. Based in Venezuela or Panama I think. No logging and no extradition to the US either so your data, even if it were held (it's not) would be safe from the US government
Every time someone asks "what's the best VPN to access Netflix in "Country-X" from "Country-Y", the answer seems to be NordVPN. The same goes for (Netflix on) Android phone, Android TV, Apple TV, iPhone, Smart TV, etc.
NordVPN is one of the most highly recommended providers, and it's also in an area where they are not affiliated with or are required to hand over any data regarding their users regardless of who asks. They also keep no logs, allow torrents, Onion over the VPN (TOR Network), kill switch, and more.
China's a little different but the Great Firewall is easily surpassed by VPNs like NordVPN.
I lived in South Korea and now Thailand where porn's illegal and all I have to do is switch to https:// and I have access.
Apollo for Reddit (have literally tried all the other reddit apps, and this is still the best).
Rick Steves Audio Europe - free audio walking tours in some European cities. Are professional quality and come with maps. Amazing travel app if you travel solo.
Pocket Casts- beautiful app, and i like podcasts
lire - best payonce RSS app on iOS atm. Can also sync and fetch text for offline use without extra charges (just a bit slow).
NordVPN - tried a few big names, this is the best. Can even fool Netflix.
OSMAnd maps- useful if you travel alot. Can save offline maps of cities/countries. Since you wont find data everywhere. I understand googlemaps can do it too but its way more cumbersome if you travel multiple cities,
I pay for mine, currently NordVPN, though I've used others there without real issue. There's virtually always some deal or another with one of the reputable vpns, and if there isn't you only need wait a wee bit and there will be one. ( is a pretty decent overview and starting point)
NordVPN seems to be pretty legit but there does appear to be an active smear campaign against them. Largely from accounts on some platforms, where the user name on other platforms is verified as the owner of PIA.
NordVPN, hundreds of access points Dozens of countries, even High Speed "streaming" access points, and direct to TOR access points that encrypt your entire connection stream, they even accept Bitcoin. They have a Canary, and even still have no logging.
I'm on team NordVPN. They've been brilliant so far. However, anyone with Sky needs to disable Sky Shield to even access the NordVPN site as it is blocked by sky. Ridiciculous. I thought Sky Shield was to "protect" you, not stop you from protecting yourself. Sky really, really do not want you to get a VPN.
NordVPN is good.
Based in Panama, no logging policy.
You can pay by credit card or even crypto.
Works with Netflix to give you US Netflix. Has servers based in most countries (Malaysia, Singapore, etc for speed).
I believe they have a 2 year plan for ~$79 USD and 3 years for ~$99 USD
I pay for Netflix, HBO Now, Hulu+Spotify (student package which is only $5/month), and of course, NordVPN for torrenting everything else. I also have Amazon Prime student which I bought specifically for shipping. Don’t use it much except to watch The Grand Tour.
Edit: edited for clarity. My sentence structure was initially poor leading everyone to believe I pay $5 for everything.
NordVPN and ExpressVPN works for me right now.
Edit: NordVPN has a 3 day trial where all you give is your email and you can use any server and you get normal speeds. Same as ExpressVPN for Mobile only you search up netflix with either vpn, they have a guide that will tell you which servers to use.
Buy a 1-month VPN membership (a good one like NordVPN) and watch the CBC or BBC’s coverage. Way less ads, very little obnoxious commentary, and content on demand with full event streaming online. Stop bitching about NBC, we all know they suck. Just pay the $12 and cancel the service at the end of the month. It’s easy.
Many streaming broadcasters are now starting to do this. I use a VPN (NordVPN -- not recommending them, just stating what I use). These streaming services cannot track my true location, DNS or IP address on a Virtual Private Network.
I'm using NordVPN since they're based in Panama. I was using Private Internet Access but I read recently that it's not a good idea to use a service that's based in the US since they could be susceptible to the US's shady spying nonsense.
similarly, if you have a VPN (NordVPN is a great one), lets you search for movies and shows across the netflix catalog of tons of countries.
wanna watch harry potter on netflix but live in the U.S.? set up your VPN to connect to a server in france.
you can search just about anything and it’ll be on netflix somewhere. VPNs are super neat.
edit: NordVPN works flawlessly for me, but there are definitely VPNs that will not. free ones are pretty much guaranteed to not work.
I have NordVPN. It has its issues. A lot of sites behind some sort of DDOS-protection device or service (like cloudfare) will block a lot of NordVPN IPs. Amazon's main website often doesn't work if I'm connected to it. Also some minor sites, like won't work if I have a NordVPN connection active. It's pretty annoying.
Edit: ironic on a video with a guy advertising NordVPN, consensus in off topic sub-thread concludes PIA is better. LMAO
Before we start the video I want to tell you guys about something...
>This is really suspicious, and it confirms my intuitions that Nord is too good to be true.
>Don't trust NordVPN!!!!
You're a fool to consider this evidence or proof that your intuition is right.
After I've shaven my face using Dollar Shave Club™ Razor and created my gorgeous website on SquareSpace™ I like to relax and cook a meal using the meal kits from Blue Apron™.
I've written a book about my experiences which you can find on the worlds leading audiobook provider Audible™. Be sure to use the offer code CUNT for your first audiobook free!
Then after a long day I like to relax on my Casper Mattress™ which came in this months Loot Crate™ which was posted using cheap and reliable postage stamps from ™
This post brought to you by the internet over NordVPN™
So the whole 'no logs', 'outside of foreign influence', 'independent audit in progress', 'pro privacy ethos', 'daily warrant canary' and good security and encryption practises are all just one big illusion to fool you into routing your traffic through them.
I agree with being sceptical of an organisation's integrity, but exactly how much do you need to convince you? Because if I looked hard enough, I could find reasons that any website is secretly puppeteered by the NSA.
Also, if I were the NSA, it's much more economical to monitor specific websites of interest and time correlate the requests than it is to own a major VPN provider (As well as all of its competitors, got to catch them all).
NordVPN even offers a 'double VPN' which makes those attacks even harder to pull off. Seems counter intuitive to their goals.
>a NordVPN spokesperson says the interest has been driven by privacy concerns over the introduction of Australia's mandatory metadata retention scheme.
Village Roadshow buying this legislation, and every fuckwit that voted in support of it actively made it harder for ASIO to do their job.
I first heard of NordVPN from one of Phil's sponsor segments, and I didn't trust them from that moment on. He used the term "military grade encryption" (he has since stopped using it, but other sponsorships and commercials still use it), which is not false, but definitely deceptive, since the military uses the same encryption as everyone else. He also compared a VPN to a firewall, which works completely differently than a VPN. I get that he has to simplify it so that non-tech savvy people can get interested, but come on. You also get a 77% discount if you use Phil's code, which has deceptive marketing written all over it, because they're obviously making the normal price really high and then giving you a huge discount to draw you in when really it's just an average price.
If anyone is looking for alternatives, I recommend PIA. They've been proven not to keep logs, they have fast speeds, and I haven't encountered any deceptive marketing from them.
> Epic's launcher has far fewer features than Steam, plus has a history of security breaches and other issues.
Apparently they perma-ban if you're detected using a VPN. Yes, for singleplayer games. Yes, on first offense. I'm not tossing my NordVPN subscription and gimping my network security just for their shitty storefront. Hard pass.
You need one with the option to uhh, I think it's usually called 'obfuscate private browsing' or something like that. It's been a long time since I activated mine for a China trip. I know NordVPN, VPNProxyMaster, and Tunnelbear have the option, but I refuse to endorse Tunnelbear because they're self righteous, guilt trippy, and cringey
•NordVPN $3 (pro-rated monthly from two-year cost)
•Hulu $3 (Spotify promotional add-on)
•Amazon $8 (pro-rated monthly from yearly cost)
•Sling $5 ($20/month for three months, pro-rated monthly from yearly cost)
Monthly cost of cable TV is $100 at a minimum, so these à la carte services are still a bargain.
Hell yeah, bounced on my boy’s dick to this for hours. Reminds me of that time when I went out to play basketball with Bill Clinton and he plays really well cause as we all know, Bill Clinton is black. Obama was there too but he was to busy being a soyboy to play. I managed to beat Bill though and from the way he reacted, you could’ve sworn he was either an enraged Philly fan or Donald Trump when he receives any form of criticism on Twitter. Anyways, this comment was sponsored by NordVPN, hail Satan.

As I mentioned in the title. Used BetterTouchTool to customize my Touchbar and I thought I'd share it since I'm very happy with it and after a couple of weeks of not using the Touchbar I've started using it all the time.
From left to right:
Public IP, WiFi name and internal IP.
Status of two work servers. Displays a red X if the webserver, PHP or database is not working.
Spotify artwork and current song. Next song button.
NordVPN on/off toggle. Green means on.
Empty space for most used emojis in certain apps like iMessage, WhatsApp and Skype.
Commodore 64 decoration :) long press to lock screen.
Basically keeps your browsing history private if you torrent or just don't want people to know what you're doing online(like your ISP).
I bought NordVPN at a discount but there are some free ones out there. The paid ones are not that expensive for a year or two tho.
So did all of the other VPNs that used to work. The reason they try and lock you in for 3 years is because NordVPN will go the way of all the other VPNs and stop working as soon as the streaming services find a way to block access.
My heart grew heavy at the NordVPN ad. It felt like a fucking slap in the face. "Hey guys please help cause I feel like I'm stuck in an algorithmic machine and I'm depressed, also THIS VIDEO WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY..." it just took away from everything. I miss when jack was honest, funny, creative, but honestly, I just miss when he was happy.
And make sure to browse securely with NordVPN! NordVPN helps protect your data and keep you safe when browsing online. Be sure to use code 'shelloutforshillings' for 75% off your first 3 months. NordVPN!
>Whenever you use your computer are you logged in on a reputable VPN service like NordVPN with CyberSec enabled? If NO, stop being cheap and go to and buy a 2 year subscription to protect your internet traffic and make it encrypted.
NO NO NO. Do not use a VPN for security unless you have a really good reason to. It does almost nothing to protect you from hackers in general, while giving control over all your traffic to the VPN provider. A single point of failure like this is a severe danger in itself. VPNs are important if you're traveling a lot and must do sensitive stuff on untrustworthy networks. But even then, you should always be using HTTPS and a trustworthy public DNS service. But this mitigates the need for a VPN in most cases.
You can use a VPN to make it look like you're in a region where it is available. Opera browser comes with a free VPN built-in, although paid VPN's can provide superior performance. Personally, I use NordVPN.
Same for me, i'm from Holland myself. i used this site as a quick fix (at work atm) otherwise i use NordVPN.
Simon would just not show up and 4 months later do a faux artsy video of different street signs with narration about how he didn't show up because he needed to spend time reconnecting with his creative spirit so he could shoot another 1 minute film in which nothing happens that looks like it was shot on a potato and then when the film comes out 8 months later it's just a poorly disguised ad for NordVPN.
I thought something was too good to be true. I had the same feeling with NordVPN and that turned out to be sketchy too. It seems like ads dont think people will look into what's behind the scene, but end up being caught pretty quickly after becoming mainstream.
It's a collection of downloading over a year. I worked near a Cineplex theater, I spent like 4 hours nearly everyday, chilling with my Starbucks (yeah, hipster, eh?), where they would have open Wifi but limited internet access for shit like Timeplay. Their wifi is insanely fast for a public wifi. Only if you use a VPN like PIA or NordVPN.
Greatest loophole I ever discovered. And the collection is still growing.
Click on the link, it looks like they just used the same serviced office provider and then this happend:
*This is an unfortunate mistake made by Algirdas, our first (and amazing) Vilnius team member. Back when he first joined us several years ago, we outsourced HR to a third party as it didn't make sense to incorporate a new company for just a single employee.
As Algirdas was formally employed through Tesonet, he put Tesonet into the cert, and nobody noticed it until recently. Unfortunately Google does not permit the cert to EVER be changed, so we are stuck with this cert forever:
Google says it is a "feature", but most likely it is a "bug" especially when considering how many 1024-bit certs are still out there...
The link also mentioned NordVPN.
I have had nightmares with my VPN (NordVPN) because of SKY. The VPN is great but Sky blocked access even to their website, let alone logging into the VPN. Took me days to settle. I couldn't even Livechat with NordVPN because their website was blocked so had to sort it out by email. NordVPN told me to remove SKY Shield plus another couple of tweaks on the router home address. When I tried to do that online I did not have the option to disable the SKY shield (it was greyed out) and ended up doing it by phone. The minute SKY shield was disabled (as is my right) the VPN worked perfectly. So, yes, SKY are definitely blocking VPNs to the point where you can't even download the software to get it working.
Edit: I initially managed to download the software by using my Three mi-fi instead of SKY.
ethernet. I even posted about this on here two months ago.
NordVPN is one of the worst companies you can have to manage your VPN. They are known for being complete scummers and telling lies. They used to say VPNs improve your gaming experience, as well as making your internet faster and a lot of other lies like that. Scummers.
This is another sponsored video (for NordVPN) that he hasn't disclosed up front.
It's now become his modus operandi. There is no clear disclosure that it's sponsored content at the start of the video.
That’s your 50% paranoia. Even if it was a full 1.5M sq ft of datacenter how does that impact your trust with NordVPN? You narrowed down a leased IP address to a city that has several of the state’s largest data centers and are blatantly assuming or implying its collusion with the NSA? Physical proximity is not enough evidence to run a company through the mud because you are paranoid. It’s also not enough to discredit it though, to your point.
I personally would never use the app provided by a VPN Provider.
I prefer to use openvpn or wireguard and would only use a VPN provider that provides config for them.
Also PIA is good but not for the reason you mentioned. NordVPN is nice as well.
++ for mullvad which uses wireguard (10x better than openvpn in my opinion)
tldr: don't used the binary provided by VPN providers.
EDIT2: added a disadvantage to the list
> widely regarded as the best out there.
I wouldn't go as far as to say that. Best marketing perhaps. They've been doing a lot to fight for net neutrality, which is great, but there are other VPN services out there, many are as good or better than PIA in terms of price, speed, and privacy.
I actually use PIA myself, but their exit nodes are banned on a lot of sites, and the speeds on some are <20mbit which is unacceptable to me. I hear good things about NordVPN and IPreadator and a few others as well.
This did not explain ANYTHING, nor was it relevant to the topic. What a mess...
I'm even more glad that my subscription expired recently and that I just switched to NordVPN. At least they look trustworthy to me atm
Bill Burr finally got a VPN to advertise on his podcast and a good one! Been seeing NordVPN trying to capitalize on all these privacy issues on the current events and waited to see who would be the first to advertise on Burr's podcast. Good shit.
Also if someone can direct Bill to JRE podcast with the kid that is trying to solve the plastic island issue. That would be great.
I want a somewhat similar thing. I'm completely new to the whole topic and I've been told that running a wireless setup like this apparently bottlenecks my network performance. Do you agree with that assumption?
I was thinking about the following setup for me:
(Router)->(Pi-hole/NordVPN on Pi)->(Desktop/Phone/TV)
* NordVPN because Netflix's Geo-blocking. I need the option to occasionally turn that off though. For example when I want to play games on my Desktop. Can I just SSH into the PI to turn that off then?
I don't know to convert the project yet, what Pi to use, what accessories I need, case etc. I need a wired connection from my Desktop and wireless for my TV/Chromcast + a side note, what do you mean by " torrent + SMB + FTP "?
Yeah, nice try, Alexa. Terrorize Mumkey Jones all you want, but leave our boy out of it.
That being said, bounced on my boy's dick to that simulated Big Money Salvia.

I wanna say something like “Erik deserves a tv show” which he does, but I feel like the charm of ICE, especially this years episodes, are the home grown feel. It feels like it’s just Erik having fun occasionally with his friends. I know a shit ton of work goes into these, and it definitely shows. I love when he has guests, it’s usually just his friends, even people we’ve never heard of. Despite him having a sizable following he still creates very genuine and fun content. Even though he takes sponsors he integrates them so well it’s honestly not affecting my experience. I’ve never seen someone do it so well, specifically in regards to NordVPN. Man I just really love big money.
If you're insistent on that one you could get a UK forwarding address and use a VPN (I recommend NordVPN). The VPN makes you look like your computer is in the UK and the forwarding address gives you a real physical UK address that will forward any packages to your real address for a fee.
You can try installing some kind of ad blocker, but what I did I bought a vpn which also blocks ads, that way I got ad blocker and security in one purchase. I bought NordVPN, it has this kind of feature and works pretty smooth.
I've reached out to NordVPN regarding this. Audit is ongoing and soon will reach the final stage; however no VPN service has ever been audited regarding their 'no logs' claims. Such ISO standard doesn't even exist, therefore it takes time and a lot of paperwork in order to make it right. And although deadlines are difficult to determine, Nord's staff believes that the results will be out within a month.
That's not even the best part:
>If you are planning on using your VPN connection for any illicit activities (e.g. illegal file-sharing), I would recommend investing in a paid VPN service like NordVPN that offers double encryption and hosts their servers in countries that can/will not prosecute. ***
They literally give advice on how to break the law.
Yes, this isn't NordVPN specific at all.
You will have to blindly trust your vpn provider without any possibility to verify if they are really respecting your privacy.
But if you don't trust a vpn, you have to blindly trust your isp. And there are several known cases where isps sold your metadata. So my comment isn't a recommendation to not-use a vpn.
> Anyone with Wireshark (or any other similar app) and some networking knowledge can perform a network scan, check all requests made by the NordVPN application, and verify their destinations. The results will prove that the web scraping accusations are false. We have never in any way been related to any other projects developed by Tesonet.
While we can verify what data the vpn client to the vpn server sends, there is absolutly no way for us to check what the server does with the data. And the server knows basically our complete internet activity. If NordVPN would sell this data we wouldn't be able to find this out.
I don't know if they do this or if they don't. But users just don't have a way of checking this.
Wenn es nur um streamen von VODs geht soll NordVPN ganz gut sein. Die haben ein funktionioerendes Netz um auch US Netflix zu streamen + ein 3 Jahre für 1 Jahr angebot.
Hinweis: Kenne es nicht selbst, alles Infos aus zweiter Hand.
Last 6 months i have now felt the need to move VPN service to Panama based company (NordVPN) , Encrypt my OS (Bitlocker), encrypt my secondary storage (Veracrypt) & encrypt my android (SuperSU)...
People should not have to do all this to get privacy in the 21st century.
VPN I use provide "Obfuscated servers" option to connect specifically from China. I strongly doubt that the Egypt developed better VPN blocking method than the one implemented into the Great Firewall, so it should work just fine.
Still, it would be wise to test it first.
This is about a week old at this point but I've just found out - I will be switching to NordVPN after being a PIA customer for ~5 years. Hiring of Mark Karpelès to CTO doesn't look good or trustworthy. And quoting Michael Jordan and comparing Mark Karpelès to Bill Gates is one of the cringiest bad PR moves I've ever seen.
I would argue, absolutely yes. Also, depending on your country there might be laws surrounding illegal downloading that make buying a VPN a safe and effective option. NordVPN usually has deals where you can get 3 years worth for the price of 1. :)
Yeah that would be practically worthless because Google is going to keep logs and then use that data for targeted ads or as evidence for a certain 3 letter acronym government agency with a FISA warrant. When selecting a VPN service, make sure they they state that they do not keep logs of user’s browsing data. Not to advertise for them, but NordVPN is fantastic.
I was searching around to verify some of this for myself, and found this article:
It says that NordVPN spent $497,000 USD on advertising on CNN in February of 2018. That's almost 1/2 million, just on CNN, and just in 1 month.
NordVPN has a 3 years for the price of 1 offer on at the moment. I've been with them for a year and am perfectly happy. Seems a (relatively) small price to pay for the security but also depends on your needs. Opera (browser) has a built in VPN and is a lovely, lightweight browser with useful extensions. VPN seems basic bitch level security these days. TOR is another option - you can use with WWW for secure banking etc.
With PIA at the moment but thinking of changing to NordVPN. PIA are so popular on reddit I'm assuming there are a lot of their shills about, but they don't do as well as others on
They're also based in a five eyes country, which is a big turn off. But don't have any more concrete complaints about them than those.
Edit: maybe not NordVPN. I'll just have to go through again.
Do you have a source for NordVPN handing over info to any governments?
To my knowledge, Nord is based in Panama (not part of 5 eyes or 14 eyes), and also has a warrant canary on their page.
Heb m'n moeder nog over kunnen halen om tegen te stemmen met het referendum. :)
Mijn vader is van zichzelf paranoide genoeg om tegen te stemmen, die hoef ik het niet eens te vragen.
Overigens, in het kader van de Sleepwet, aanbieding NordVPN. Wel goed getimed van ze.
I am currently using NordVPN and it works well with Netflix. You can read more about VPN and Netflix in this article (personally it helped me to decide what to choose)
I get audible, NordVPN, and dollar shave club... all of those businesses seem like they probably have a huge customer base... but... squarespace... are there really that many people buying website templates out there that they can sponsor every goddamn podcast on the planet?
"This is a more serious video"
Makes a stupid Grinch joke throughout the whole video taking away from the seriousness.
"This video isn't monetized"

How to make me care less about something I once loved.
På NordVPN hvis du bruker en lokal server (i samme land som du befinner deg i) skal du ikke merke noe særlig lavere hastighet.
Hvis du kobler via feks USA går det litt treigere, men helt brukbart til netflix feks.
Du kan bruke den til alt, men hvis du skal gjøre P2P er det bedre å velge en av serverne de har spesielt til p2p.
Yeah, I've used PIA in the past, don't have anything bad to say about them, maybe it's just not the best option for streaming. I feel like for Netflix, something like NordVPN, Cyberghost or Vypr would be better.
I can personally vouch for PrivateInternetAccess. Relatively cheap, foolproof client for the inexperienced, multiple connection locations, excellent speed - I couldn't recommend them enough (though NordVPN would be even better if you have a small amount extra to spend).
A VPN browser extension is an SSH proxy. This is different from network level VPN technologies such as OpenVPN, L2TP, IPSec etc.
For example, having a VPN extension for Chrome will only send Chrome traffic through the VPN. Android apps, Linux apps and OS level traffic will go outside the VPN. Unless you use a network level VPN. Most providers, including NordVPN provide a browser extension in addition to their own OpenVPN clients.
A browser extension is less secure and not really anonymous compared to a proper network level client.
I’ve used both. PIA and NordVPN are very similar and do pretty much the same thing. Although NordVPN has special servers for P2P and TOR usage, I haven’t seen a significant difference than with the normal servers.
So it doesn’t really matter which one you pick, iirc PIA is cheaper than Nord. If you want to use NordVPN, be sure to use one of those special offers that get advertised everywhere (especially on YouTube).
Ik heb net 3 dagen (gratis trial) NordVPN met uTorrent getest. Goeie snelheden, snelle support (via live chat), veel servers (10 P2P-servers in NL) en op (dus met couponcode '2YDeal2017') heb je hem 2 jaar lang voor 3.29 per maand.
Over de app zelf of bijv. installeren op je router kan ik (nog) niets zeggen, maar als proxy in uTorrent werkt het prima!
(zo ben ik eraan gekomen) geeft het een goede score en, bonus, volgens hen werkt het (voor nu) ook met Netflix.

My 'sefl' or my 'self'? Which is it? We can't give accurate responses if this isn't clarified further. In the case it's your sefl, here's how:
1. Install an anti-virus
2. Disable all privacy-intruding settings on your operating system and accounts online
3. Use a password manager (e.g.: Keypass) with two-factor authentication
4. Never put personal details on any of your online accounts
5. Make sure your firewall is active and that you don't run any external services from your computer (e.g.: a web server)
6. Use a VPN (e.g.: NordVPN) and if you're worried you can look for one that is most trusted to delete logs and whatnot.
7. Don't do anything illegal (e.g.: port scanning, information leaking, property invasion). Set up virtual labs for testing and then do whatever you're asked for at your job given proper authentication.
Good luck protecting your sefl! Hope this helped a bit. I'm on my phone in a car so I just wrote this up real quick.
Hi Yotsuba-San, I would recommend Private Internet Access or PIA as a good introductory VPN to try. The price is reasonable and not too expensive, and is very good as well. I am using NordVPN myself and have a three year subscription, as I got it on offer.
VPN can affect gaming via ping times, so it would be better if you not use it when you are gaming. Otherwise, for light browsing and surfing and other things, it should be fine.
Personally I waited for Black Friday deals and bought VPN for 3 years. Even if they don't implement this these EU corporate shills have shown their true colors and I'm 100% sure that they'll try to screw us again.
Btw, if you're European and registering on NordVPN choose a different country than your own since since EU countries are charging for 20+% tax, I've tested it and it's all fine no matter what country you put. I'm not paying fucking taxes to these scumbags to escape their shitty Orwellian policies.
NordVPN has not been breached. These accounts were obtained from publicly available databases containing leaked credentials, which were used on other services, (like Yahoo, etc.) and matched by trying to login into Nord's UCP. These things happen because people tend to use the same credentials on different websites; when one leaks, others can be illegally accessed as well.
Most of the leaked accounts are indexed by , it is recommended for everyone to check their email there and change passwords regularly.
Nord notified me, that they are almost done with the solution, which should fix the issue.
Had no problems at all with NordVPN. There are so many services they offer you, so many different kind of servers to avoid this shit. I'm pretty sure you didn't even try. I can even watch Netflix through the VPN, which given the amount of effort they put in it to stop VPNs it's a really good achievement.
here's a resource to see what VPN's allow streaming Netflix. Bitdefender VPN won't work with US Netflix. You need something like NordVPN to watch it. I use Nord and I am watching US content just fine.
I've only got NordVPN to work. Thanks to Google's crackdown on adblocking, the version of it that is on the Play store no longer blocks ads though and it has to be downloaded directly from their we site to get that feature.
PIA for me always seemed to have periods where they couldn't bring new servers online fast enough to bypass blacklists. So you'd get a week or so of usability then it would stop working for geobypassing a few months until they got newer IPs that got around the blocking.
I think I only managed to watch one series on Netflix that way because I didn't have enough time. NordVPN seems different in that it is rare I can't use it to stream stuff. I don't know if that is because they aren't as popular as PIA but they seem to be targetted less tha PIA was. At least in my experience.
Even less popular VPNs might be the better way to go, if that's the case.
If the Article 13 thing goes through i will lose all trust in the EU, how disconnected from modern life and out of touch can someone be to look at this and think that its a smart idea? I guess NordVPN will save me if they end up pushing this dumb shit through.
I fully understand it, I'm a software engineer ffs.
VPN connections are very easy to detect from a ISP's perspective. It's extremely easy for ISPs to compile a black list of hosts that are owned by VPN providers and simply throttle connections to those IPs.
So yeah, they won't be able to throttle a VPN you've setup yourself on a digital ocean droplet or whatever, but that's not what 99.9% of users do anyways, they go with NordVPN/PIA because it's convenient and cheap.
But what do I know, "I don't understand how VPNs work..."
edit: In case anyone wants to setup their own VPN on digital ocean (it'll set you back 5$ per month), there's a great tutorial right here:

Having a Twitter account that says you're in England that connects through NordVPN to an English IP that regularly trolls English thought police doesn't break any international law does it? Because that sounds like a lot of fun. Not that anyone should encourage that type of behavior.

Guys, the problem is with ISP. Just use any of these 5 VPN Services suggested by other Redditors to unblock the torrent sites.
Most easiest way to use torrents. I am using PIA and NordVPN without any issues at all.
I hate NordVPN for their blatantly false and manipulative advertising. I have no idea how they can get away with saying "nobody can see your browsing data!" When anyone with access to their systems can still theoretically see it.
I like NordVPN and PIA right now.
