Five tips to choose the best VPN based on your needs

Whether you work from home or on the move, Virtual Private Networks or VPN, have become a popular tool to protect your browsing history. Having said that, while all the important things you do online remain a secret between you and the other point on the internet, your protection from the VPN server to your destination server remains a cybersecurity hotspot that can cost you dear in the long run.This is the reason that the VPN service you choose should be after careful consideration.Getting hold of the right VPN (like best value VPN is one of the leading providers in the market today) can be extremely difficult, afterall it is a matter of trust between you and the service provider as one can do little to control who can set up a VPN for rent and who cannot. While in theory VPN’s are supposed to keep your interests safe, in practice some of them can be scams designed to steal your data for selling to someone else. That said, there are reliable VPN services, best for your needs, which can be selected by following these five useful tips.Check the trial periodOne of the most important things to check initially while opting for a new VPN service is the length of the free trial period. During this time you can avail of the service without having to pay for it and ask for a refund if not satisfied. In order words, do not invest in a VPN without testing if it conforms to your requirements, which means, the trial period should be long enough to fully try out the VPN you are intending to purchase.Numbers can confuseVPN service providers display a list of numbers which are meant to inform the buyer about the services they are offering to different locations in various countries. This information, though useful to gauge the scope of the VPN company, may not necessarily offer what you actually want. The bottom line is, that irrespective of the big numbers, you should check whether the country you want to VPN is on the list. Say you want to connect to a server in Shanghai, the VPN may be useless for you even if it has thousands of locations but don’t include China.Bigger is betterDepending on how you access the internet, it is important to know the number of simultaneous devices you can be contacted to at the same time. While traveling, two or three may be more than sufficient, but at home you may want more connections in your router.Add on featuresAlmost every VPN service has software installed for Macs, Windows PC, phones, iOS devices and even Linux users. If at home you may prefer to control all your traffic a VPN service with your router, once you move away from this platform, support can become inconsistent. You will need to check, therefore, all the individual offerings which inform you about the add-on features like special software, editing etc which may meet your needs.Kill switchThis term basically refers to the stopping of sending data from the app of a VPN client as soon as the connection of the provider is over. The object is, that unless encrypted, nothing should be transferred to the destination server. While some VPN vendors have kill switches that are effective, look for a provider who says it runs at higher levels in the app network connection. A simple yardstick: do not sign up with a VPN service that does not offer a kill switch, even though it may not be universally effective if you happen to lose your connection.Editor Note: This is a promoted post and should not be considered an editorial endorsement.
