virtual private network (VPN)

Hello everyone, I'm wanting to get a VPN app and would like to hear others' experience with one. Specifically, which one you are using and whether you like that particular app or not. Thanks very much.
Linda

I use Cisco AnyConnect with out any problems. Haven't used any other VPN software. Cisco AnyConnect supports two factor authentication to assist with security of the VPN.

I have used cyberghost for several years now and it has proved reliable regardless of whether I am at home on my designated connection or traveling using my phone as a hotspot or public WiFi. I can also select server location and speed which I find helpful. Costs me 50 a year.

I have used Private Internet Access for several years, and it works fine for both Windows 10 and Android Phone. The only issue I have found is that some sites block VPN connections (from any VPN) so I have to turn it off while using those sites. It is easy to turn on and off, and I have it set to autostart when I boot.

There's a bit more to it than that. Most likely the site is blocking PPTP connections. Using an Open VPN instead of a PPTP VPN means you can use any port as well as a TCP or UDP connection. This is much harder for the site to detect. Additionally, many sites don't even go that far, and are simply blocking connections from well known VPN Server IP spaces. There are numerous ways around this, too many to list here.

One alternative that hasn't been mentioned is to roll your own. It's not that hard to create your own VPN server using open source tools.

Maybe it would be a simple matter for you Bryan. It is a little more difficult for a digitally challenged techno-caveman like myself.

Point taken Dave, but I think you're being modest.
