Mullvad VPN. It does exactly what you tell it to do and nothing more.

plus ability to use completely anonymously

I used Mullvad for a couple years. Really like the company. Their price price point was good and their client was simple.

I recently switched to ProtonVPN. The only reason for this was that having paid email and VPN came to $8 and I thought that was a great deal.

Mullvad. Can’t complain, I like their unique flat monthly rate and the CLI application is great.

One of my several favorite things about them is that when you set ff to use one of their wireguard socks5 proxies, IP tests show you as being on ‘modem or landline’ instead of ‘tunnel or proxy’ and recaptcha tests are almost non-existent. They seem a little too good to be true, so maintaining healthy skepticism does not hurt.

This is good to know! I’ve been constantly harassed by captcha since switching to using a VPN for everything.

I mostly just use NordVPN because there was a big sale going on, it was easy to get a promo code, and they have a command line interface for linux. Haven’t had too many issues with it. The killswitch it has makes me feel a bit better and it’s got P2P specific servers.

Anyone know how to use nord with wireguard without installing their closed client?

Mullvad all the way, baby. You don’t need an account to sign up OR a bank account to pay (you can, but Bitcoin has always been an option), their setup guides are very helpful and they also have Wireguard support. What’s not to like?

Mullvad + wireguard is the best. Using wireguard on Android saved a ton of battery life.

@onlooker

Right? Wireguard is such a godsend for android. I like OpenVPN well enough, but on phones the app burns through the battery like nobody’s business.

Mullvad user here. I use both the CLI and the Android client and have had little to no issues. I love all of the options available for payment and the fact that no identifying information is required to “sign up.”

tor

ProtonVPN

I’ve been using ProtonVPN for a couple years now and it’s pretty nice

Windscribe. Used it for a few years now.

I got 40GB/month for free some time ago. Since then, I use it to remove geo-blockings for content.

ProtonVPN but I’m waiting for Firefox VPN to be available in my country

@Stoned_Ape

None. Until now, I’ve not really seen a good reason to use one. If I wanted to do things that are really delicate, I would use Tor, but I’ve used that very rarely. Also, most VPN providers turned out to in fact log despite saying not to, and give that data to other people or governments.

@abbenm

I’m far from an expert on any of this, but I’ve been dabbling a little bit with the free ProtonVPN on my phone.

GlobalProtect for work. :-)

Used to use NordVPN.

Surfshark. They have wide amount of servers across the world, support for multiple connection protocols and their client features a whitelist feature for selected websites and apps. Much better overall than VPN.ht, my previous provider.

proton vpn is p2p?

Certain servers allow P2P traffic, others do not

If you pay them, yes. It’s a pretty good service, I’m using it for torrenting. In my case there’s zero speed difference when connected to a p2p server

@k_o_t

zero speed difference compared to non-proxied connection?

Yep. Not literally zero of course, but I really can’t tell whether I am connected or not to the VPN. I have been plotting the download speed reported by qbittorrent on my raspberry for a few weeks before and after starting to use their p2p vpn, and the difference was very minimal
