Virtual Private Networks, also known as VPNs, are massively popular nowadays. They make it convenient for you to watch geo-restricted content or want to open websites on the internet blocked by your ISP or government.
Whether a regular user or a taleteller, millions of people use VPNs daily to secure their data by hiding their identity on the internet. Here is the list of the top 5 VPN apps to help protect your privacy.
NordVPN is a top-rated VPN service among regular internet users. It alerts people if their login details are leaked through its ‘Dark Web Monitor’ feature. They also have their android app, helping you to connect to a safe server, just at the tap of a button.
You can choose from over 5400 servers and install this VPN on supported Wi-Fi routers for additional features. Some extra features include the potential to set custom DNS and convenient switching between UDP and TCP.
