Protect Free VPN + Data Manager is an Android and iOS exclusive byproduct of Onavo, a Facebook-owned company that tracks users’ activity across social media platforms. Find it in the App Store or on Google Play.
This VPN is completely free, with no paid option, which typically means that you are not 100% safe. As the saying goes, “If the product is free, you’re the product!” If you’re looking for a VPN that will really protect you, read our NordVPN review.
Although this VPN will encrypt your data and maintain your privacy across your mobile device, the app does clearly state that they collect your mobile data traffic as a means of improving their services (including the servi... read more
A moderately-expensive VPN with underwhelming user experience and lackluster security, AVG VPN does have some highlights going for it, but user reviews and our product testing left this VPN decidedly middle-rung at best. If you’re looking for the best VPN we would recommend going with ExpressVPN.
AVG Secure VPN has a nice, clean interface with an inviting button to toggle on and off the VPN, so usability and setup are above-average. For entertainment options, it does allow international access to US-only Netflix and YouTube content, which is a plus.
Sadly, when connected to UK servers, users often cannot access the BBC iPlayer, which should be simple to connect to. With regard to sec... read more
Borderless VPN is a newcomer with some price and performance issues that it needs to overcome before becoming a worthwhile option. As a smaller Norway-based company, Borderless earns okay ratings from users. They operate out of just 8 countries with 12 servers and only 12 IP addresses. They do have a strict no-logging policy, which is ideal, but they lack some of the functionality and speed of the bigger boys in this arena. They accept all major credit cards, and perhaps more importantly for anonymous VPN users, they also accept cryptos like Litecoin and Bitcoin. As a newcomer, it is one of the faster-growing companies, so one hopes they can scale down their pricing and shore up some of thei... read moreSee plans and pricing
ButterflyVPN has an interesting customer service review history, with some users complaining that it’s a scammy product with multiple websites (a few of which no longer load, or load in an Asian language). The FAQ section is limited and overly-technical. However, much of this criticism likely relates to an earlier iteration, back when they had a simple Gmail account rather than a professional custom domain. Others have fair to middling reports of reliability. A built-in ad blocker is a nice bonus feature that not all VPNs offer, and it does let you simultaneously use up to 10 devices, provided you’re all on the same Wi-Fi account, which makes it best for home or small office use.

There are several troublesome features and customer experience issues that make Cargo too problematic to be considered even in the top 50 VPNs. First, it is based in the USA, a Five Eyes nation that promotes spying and data sharing with partner governments. Furthermore, its minuscule one-day free trial is difficult to back out of and not nearly long enough to fully test the features and interface.
On the upside, this VPN unblocks geo-restrictions on Netflix and BBC iPlayer, but that’s about it. Otherwise, consider this VPN better for securing your data and not as a portal for streaming your favorite entertainment.
Overall, for the price point and the confusing terms of service and unreli... read more
