About Best VPN Reviews


BestVPNReviews is committed to provide users with an unbiased independent analysis of paid and free VPN services worldwide.

As an independent review site and per our policy we do not provide VPN services with notice of our tests. This is an unregulated industry and no standards or guidelines have been set so that consumers can determine precisely whether a VPN service is protecting or harming them. Most consumers are not in a position to technically evaluate a VPN service. As the only independent review site not associated with VPN services, we act as a watchdog to provide consumers with information that may contradict the marketing claims of VPN services so that consumers can make an informed decision.

After our review is posted, we provide the reviewed VPN service with an opportunity to respond to the review and we post the comments and our remarks at our site’s VPN Responses section.

To better understand how we judge and qualify VPN services, please read BestVPNReveiws Guidelines.

The benefits of Virtual Private Networks, used by large companies to share confidential information with their employees, are now available to you, me and anybody who wants to protect his privacy and anonymity while surfing the Internet.

Best VPN services provide:
• Encryption of any and all types of Internet connections from DSL and cable to 3G
• Protection of all Internet activities, data and communications
• Securing of all unsecured networks such as Wi-Fi Hotspots
• Prevention of any third party from recording web history, communications, emails, VOIP, IM, traffic, sites visited, IP addresses or access to remote desktops
• Securing of video or web-cam conferences from anywhere
• IP changes seamlessly

But there is a caveat. Not all VPN services are created equal and some VPN services make marketing claims that are not kept or are simply false. And worse, some VPN services provide a service that may increase your risk on the internet substantially – some claim to be encrypted but are not.
Best VPN Reviews cuts through all the claims to provide an unbiased, independent view so that users can be sure that they are getting what they subscribe to.

About Editors


Lana Holy

best-vpn-lana-holyWhen researching online security for my own personal use, I came to the conclusion that VPN appeared to be a good way to secure my online data from various online threats. I found that there are over 150 VPN services worldwide but that the existing VPN review sites are controlled by the very VPN sites under review. There appeared enough interest in this field to warrant my building a review site that deals in-depth with VPN and security related issues.
I have degrees in engineering and finance specializing in mathematics and technology, so I can analyze and write about VPN technical issues.
As the site evolved, other editors and technical analysts became involved and we are now committed to provide users with an unbiased independent analysis of paid and free VPN services worldwide. I hope this will clear the chaff from the large number of lookalike but suspicious VPN services available.
As an independent review site, BestVPNReviews.com does not accept remuneration from VPN services. This is an unregulated industry in which standards and guidelines have not been set. Therefore consumers can’t determine whether a VPN service is protecting or harming them. Most consumers are not in a position to technically evaluate a VPN service. As the only independent review site not associated with VPN services, our editors are endeavoring to act as a watchdog to provide consumers with information that may contradict the marketing claims of VPN services so that consumers can make an informed decision.
