I have been using Private Internet Access for the last two years. I chose PIA based on their policies, and their reputation to stick to them. The biggest factors for me when I was choosing among VPN services were: 1) Are they truly a logless VPN service?, 2) What platforms do they support?, 3)  What are speeds like with the service?, and last but not least 4) Pricing / Deals.

Perfect Privacy. It's a bit pricey, but the best I've used so far.

I haven't tried a lot of VPNs, so keep in mind that my opinion is limited. After using NordVPN, CyberGhost, and ExpressVPN, I stuck with Nord. The only reason why I use a VPN is for US Netflix content, BBC iPlayer and sometimes Hulu. In my case, Nord worked the best with these features.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I use Windscribe, solely because I'm poor.
Linears are for linear people. No offense if you use linears.
I prefer tactile switches, I'm reluctantly using the AULA SI-859 and my pronouns are she/her.

Nord seems to be a solid service. I might have to give them a try soon -- PIA is too big for my tastes.

Another vote for NordVPN. Speeds are good, supports torrenting, doesn't support port forwarding though, but has a huge server list and no log policy. It is more than enough for my needs.

I've tried many VPNs, but recently i've been using PROTON VPN when i need to do....stuff... :cool:
Thought most of the time i just use my own vpn that i set up on my server, based...somewhere far..really far...

Proton VPN as the best PING i've seen from all the other ones i tried...PIA, NORD, TUNNELBEAR...etc
It also supports Torrenting, TOR and other stuff.

Sounds like im selling it...but yeah it's just good for me.

The fact that Nord was hacked, in a pretty inconsequential way, isn't a big deal.
EVERYONE gets hacked, Yahoo, Google, MSN, name a large company they have probably been hit and this includes credit companies.
Where Nord really screwed up was they hid it for months and only came clean when they were confronted, and that's IF you believe them about how severe it was.

According to Nord, they private keys to one server were stolen, but only one server, which was supposedly not online yet. So even if they tried a man-in-the-middle attack, no one was using it. problem with this is that server is connected to others, being used or not and worse... it took them MONTHS to tell people, and at that time claimed they were still investigating but it was minimal, but this was only revealed after they were called on it. I can understand you want time to investigate, fine, do a preliminary and tell people. Instead, Nord went full PR mode and tried to brush it off.

Keep in mind, the people who made Nord what it was, are no longer running it. It was sold a while back.


By the way, there is very little you need to Torrent that you cannot get elsewhere, and in a more legal-ish manner.

Sooo, this is why some of us worried when they were silent until caught and worse, when they went full P.R. mode when they did.

Seems they got hit again and considering these were found online, either more was taken than claimed (though they are still "investigating") or they got hit a second time since and are either unaware or not forthcoming, again.

Everyone gets hacked, these companies need to be more proactive in fighting it and more forthcoming when it does happen.
