    "Yes, you could use a VPN for nefarious purposes. However, you can use them to keep others from using you for nefarious purposes. When you realize just how vulnerable your online life is, you want to put locks on the doors."

    "AirVPN has provided me with quick and user friendly VPN access that offers me a secure connection without any apparent compromise in speed. I use this service most of the time when I connect these days. I find it is quick to connect and does not kick me off from the service."

    "Express VPN is alright, it's not the best. The instructions sound easy but it's actually sort of complicated to master. The graphics and set up are clean though."

    "NordVPN is one of the best VPN services out there. It's easy to use and pretty affordable (they are always running some sort of promo code or something to lower the rate as well). They do not support Torrents however, so if that's something you're looking for, look elsewhere."

    "Buffered VPN, while not free, is one of the better paid VPNs. It works on Linux, Mac, and Windows, so whatever your OS you will be covered. It lets you access foreign sites, and do things like watch BBC as if you were a British person. Great app, and not too expensive for what they are offering."
