Browsing the internet is an experience that has dramatically changed over the years. Since it was first introduced to us, the internet took a turn for the worst in many cases, leading up to numerous threats and obstacles layered in front of anyone that wants to use it.

Luckily, there aren’t just threats, but also protections against such threats. A popular way of keeping your identity safe on the internet is using a VPN service. VPNs are tools you can use to mask the bit of information visible online that are connected to your computer. You can use a VPN service to make it look like you’re browsing from another country even. In this article we shall take a look at some of the top VPNs available right now.

TunnelBear

TunnelBear is a great solution for when you need a VPN’s assistance. The strong points of this particular service is its payment and platform plans. The software can be used for $50 per year, which isn’t much at all if you consider how long 12 months actually are. In addition to that it is compatible with all major platforms such as Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS. If you’re only interested in using TunnelBear on mobile devices, you can opt for a mobile-only deal.

TunnelBear Free

If you are a heavy user or require a lot of data transfer, this might not be for you. However, if you’re just a casual browser that checks a couple pages on the internet before logging off, this might prove a better solution. The free version of TunnelBear comes as an alternative to the paid version and unlike that one, the Free version is limited to 500 MB of usage every month. There is a way to get an additional 1 GB off data by giving them a shoutout on Twitter. The program’s interface comes with a Twitter button that will take you a button away from getting 1 GB of data. Also available for all major platforms, TunnelBear Free can be a nice backup plan to have.

IP Vanish

IP Vanish is a torrent friendly solution that will allow you to carry on your torrent related activities while also shielding your identity. It will cost you $10 per month to use this service but if you opt in for a yearly subscription, the price will go down to around $7 per month. It is also compatible with all major platforms and relies on its speed to produce fast results.

BTGuard

Also at $10 per month you can opt for BTGuard’s services which come with great tools to facilitate torrents and download speeds. It basically comes with no cap on download speeds and that’s thanks to their 10 Gb servers.
