Tried encrypt.me.  For basics, it's ok, but not truly secure for what I want.  Purchased NordVPN access.  Special deal for Cyber Monday - 3 years for $99.  How could I pass that up for one of the top rated companies?

+1 on Opera and Opera vpn on Android


I was just checking this out with great interest.  You do realize that Opera was sold to a Chinese consortium a while back?  That absolutely kills the whole deal for me.  Sadly, because Opera was a nice browser I used to use regularly.  I think I’m going to test viffergyrl’s recommendation of encrypt.me on their 14 day free trial.  Right after i go get a new cable modem/wifi router.  My Netgear c3700 has gone flaky on me, dropping connection too regularly with Comcast.

 :(

I'm now looking at other options. I have Kaspersky AV and not sure I want to use their vpn. I would get 300Mb free per day.
It looks like I will go with one of the pay options like NordVPN.
Ride safe!

I can't validate any of their claims but the discussion about the need for no logs is valid.

Shoot.  It's been too long playing with IPsec settings.  I'm trying to configure my cable modem/wifi router for IPsec tunneling with NordVPN and my mind is going blank with all the various address and subnet settings.  Their FAQ doesn't cover what I need, which is a refresher course on basic networking.

I fixed the autoconnect VPN thingie.  I bought a DD-WRT equipped wifi router this week and set it up instead of using the wifi off the cable modem.  Ran the install script provided by NordVPN and it's configured to start automatically and covers everything on the house network now.  Snappy performance returns.

I've heard a lot of good press on TunnelBear
