I use Private Internet Access (PIA). Remarkably good performance for a VPN.

Check this out Perry..... a huge list of privacy stuff courtesy of "rhiannon" at Gizmos tech Support Alert.
I've been a member of this freeware forum for quite a few years..... I consider it to be one of the most trusted sites for honest reviews and opinions on any software and related computer stuff.

Interesting sites, terra. I've bookmarked them. I write a lot of articles on security and that first site could come in handy for reference.

The VPN I use doesn't keep logs, so if PIA is asked to hand over anything, it can rightly say it has nothing to give.

Yeah, I'm not convinced on some of the items in that lot but the Master Password thing caught my eye.
Might be a good replacement for my "LastPass" password manager.

If you do a lot of banking and/or very private work on your computer, then please consider using a VPN for your own peace of mind!
