There is no one answer. Depends what you want it for and your reasons for doing so, as well as your appetite for logging (for example).

All I want to do is hide my Bittorrent traffic.

NordVPN personally, avoid Vyper/Goldenfrog.

Should I? I'm guessing the answer is "yes", if they're likely to turn the logs over to anyone who asks.

I'm not trying to be awks, but that site is really worth a read. Only you can ultimately decide, as no one VPN fits all.

I signed up to BlackVPN because I think someone mentioned it here. It was easy to set up and from various reviews I read it seemed secure. Someone with actual expertise might say otherwise.

Yeah, taken a quick look through it, and shared it with my workmate, who uses IPVanish. I'll have a longer look when I get home.

I use IPVanish. 77 a year. You get one App licence and 5 openvpn licences. I use mine for an android box with kodi. I set the VPN on my router for just the one device, and to block its use if the tunnel goes down. Works a treat, although I have to manually re-choose a new server now and again if it gets busy. NordVPN seems to be getting some traction recently though so I'll be looking at that one at renewal as a potential alternative.

Best thing to do mate is take some trials out on a junk email address and see which you like the best.

I've used PIA for a couple of years and not had any major issues. The proxy they provide is crap though - I tried using it with jDownloader and it was constantly disconnecting.

Half the price to black and allows more clients, 5 compared to 3 iirc. Their attitude aligns closely with mine, generally, no logging, well designed purchasing system that pays close attention to good opsec (so could be totally anonymous if you want) which means that they have a good idea of what they're doing. Not something I'm especially bothered about, but that kind of stuff bleeds well into other areas and is encouraging. Ymmv ofc.

Just subbed to Mullvad, €5/month, 5 devices. Client is very streamlined and nicely designed, pretty much idiot proof it seems.
