A VPN is a powerful device to safeguard your online privacy. However, not all VPN providers are all created equal. Some are more transparent than others regarding their logging policies, while some are better in blocking data security breaches. ProtonVPN, a provider who invests a lot into its security infrastructure, is a great example. Its software is open source and the company regularly publishes transparency reports which detail how often it gets requests from law enforcement agencies as well as other third parties for the information of users.

ProtonVPN also does a lot of things to ensure your data safe, such as encrypting your connections with industry-standard 256-bit AES encryption and adding features like the kill switch and a strict no-logs policy. ProtonVPN offers options like Secure Core servers (double-VPN routing), NetShield, an ad-blocker and tracking blocker, and perfect forward secrecy.

In the end, ProtonVPN has mobile apps that rival many of the most popular competitors in terms usability. Its Android application, which is well-optimized, gives you a clear view of the speed of your connection and server load, among other things. In addition, it lets you select specific cities to connect to, which is a nice feature for those who stream sports or that wish to avoid local streaming blackouts. It also shows the load on each server on the list, so you can find the fastest choices with a single click.
