Here is an overview of all reviews of VPNservices that are individually assessed based on the criteria security, anonymity and servers and features.
The reviews are based on common use, which should cover most users who do not have exotic special needs. As a general rule,
- Ensuring Internet connections against hacking and monitoring
- Including connection to public / open WiFi (Starbucks, airports, etc.).
- Anonymization of the internet connection in general (hidden IP address)
- Including anonymous download with P2P (torrents)
- Access to region-limited services (eg. Netflix, BBC, DR, TV2 etc.)
This character is typically "either or", because either secure encryption is used or not. The top grade 10 is given if multiple recognized encryption protocols and Open can be usedVPNwhich is the safest is one of them.
It is deducted for insufficient or insecure encryption and, if there are other circumstances, to be considered uncertain when used.
Here is given top marks for one VPN provider who does not log user data and who also uses or gives the opportunity to use a number of special functions that ensure that anonymity is not compromised. It can e.g. be a killswitchthat automatically closes the internet connection immediately if VPNthe connection is interrupted, preventing leakage of users' IP address.
No dump character is necessarily given if data is logged if the delivery of these logs is only done by displaying a warrant. It still provides some privacy, but one VPN- service without logs is far preferable - especially since there are many of them.
Servers and features
Generally, a high grade is given VPNServices that can offer a high number of servers across many locations. In this way, there is a certain guarantee of a quick connection, as the load on the network can be better distributed and users have the ability to connect to servers the places they need.
Particular attention is given to connecting to servers in Denmark, which is mandatory if the service is to be used with Danish web services from abroad. For users in Denmark, connection to physically close servers is the least loss of speed and optimal response times.
In addition to servers, emphasis is also placed on various extras that enhance the experience, application or safety of the product. Examples of such may be obfuscationthat hides use of VPN, which in some situations may be necessary to avoid blocking or Smart DNSwhich can be used to access region-limited services on non-usable devices VPN.
It is also essential that the product can be easily used on all platforms (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, etc.) and it should ideally be used on multiple devices at the same time, such as can be shared with the other members of the household.
Conversely, a limited selection of servers will pull down, as will important features missing. Here you occasionally encounter VPNservices that are blocking the P2P download, which pulls down the character, but which for some will be irrelevant.
