Security researcher John Mason compiled a list of 26 paid VPN's that claimed no logging and do actually log. He writes for an affliate site - but he's the guy that first wrote about Chrome extensions leaking your DNS.
IPVanish has partnered with Pornhub to offer a free VPN service to get round the age verification requirements, Mindgeek, Pornhub's parent company also created AgeID in conjunction with the British Government
This is the list
I have been using PIA and other VPNs (Mullvad, StrongVPN, Anonymizer) for years now. I consider myself very informed on VPN and have helped spread the word about VPN to many other redditors.
I have no reason to doubt PIA. These are the same guys from Bitcoin (and they are one of the few that accept Bitcoin), and they sponsor EFF. They have more servers than any of the other VPNs, and you can see that difference with their speeds. Plus, they take bitcoin. Any provider that doesn't, you should be skeptical of.
PIA is highly recommended, and I don't think I am alone in this thinking.
Heres a list of vpn that log ( most of them even tell they dont )
Like astrill they claim no logs. but they do .
Look for VPN services, they are the ones you need to change your IP to the one located in another continent. Anonymizer, NordVPN have a lot of servers to change IP. And yes, I suggest changing it and connecting to different ones every time
I remember how one of the Lulzsec members were caught because of HideMyAss (except they don't even need a security letter apparently).
Also some FBI audiences at Tor presentations have claimed that Anonymizer gives information on users, and complained that TOR does not.
IP address anonymization/hiding is not a function performed by software; it's a service provided by some other person/company, who replaces your IP address with theirs. The service provider promises not to release, or to release only in certain circumstances, the relationship between your IP address, your login information, and the externally visible IP address that they're using on your behalf.
That service often requires software to be installed on your device; but the privacy actually is created by the service.
So you shouldn't be looking for programs, but for anonymization/VPN services. I have been happy with Private Internet Access for VPN, but I use VPN more for security than for anonymization. is probably the vendor who has been doing this the longest. has a catchy name but actually logs traffic and doesn't provide a lot of privacy if someone comes after you.
I'm glad to see more of them accepting cash in the mail. I'm beginning to think this entire list can be culled down to just a few that accept cash. It is had to imagine that the company isn't serous about privacy when they accept cash as a payment method.
From the new list, those that accept cash payment:
That makes the list more manageable. I'd take out IVPN on further review as they keep a 10 minute log. Anonymizer has a 24 hour log. That takes it down to 3.
I like Liquid VPN's style, going to give them a closer look.
Cool matrix chart of the whole survey.
I needed a VPN for privacy so I was recommended to check NordVPN or Anonymizer and went with Nord because it also has P2P servers. I was told that free VPNs sell your data to third parties or are limited in data so I got a paid one instead.
Excuse the double post but for those who haven't been following, today is the last chance for many VPN providers to get great deals. Including :-
PrivateInternetAccess, TorGuard, , LiquidVPN, Overplay, Invisible Browsing VPN and Anonymizer.
Google'd the VPNs whilst making my way through the list, and reading what other redditors said about 'em.
PIA - Don't use
NORDPVN - Don't use
ExpressVPN - Don't use
TorGuard - Don't use
Anonymizer - Don't use
IPredator is the first in the list that seems to be decent enough.
Is there anyone able to recommended a working VPN to view other Countries Netflix libraries. I was using UnblockUs for around a year, until Netflix decided to block everything. Since then I have tried . Anonymizer Universal. ExpressVPN, and I am yet to find one that is working correctly. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Lmao, they are using OpenDNS to block any VPN or Proxy. Blocked as a Proxy/Anonymizer. HideMyAss is blocked too.
Fuck this shit, choco install tor-browser here we that didn't work. I tried changing my DNS server also but that didn't fix it...
Downloaded TOR from Filehippo, used TOR to download CyberGhost. Just going to use it as a free VPN till I buy new internet.
