This article is a '''comparison of [[virtual private network]] services'''.


In [[computer magazine]]s, VPN services are typically judged on connection speeds; privacy protection, including privacy at signup and grade of encryption; server count and locations, interface usability, and cost.<ref name="pcworld-bestvpn2018-test">{{cite web |last=Paul |first=Ian |url=https://www.pcworld.com/article/3198369/privacy/best-vpn-services-apps-reviews-buying-advice.html#toc-7 |publisher=[[PC World]] |title=Best VPN services of 2018: Reviews and buying advice |work=How we tested |date=2018-01-02 |archivedate=2018-01-04 |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20180104160416/https://www.pcworld.com/article/3198369/privacy/best-vpn-services-apps-reviews-buying-advice.html#toc-7 }}</ref><ref name="pcmag-bestvpn2018-important">{{cite web |last=Eddy |first=Max |url=http://uk.pcmag.com/software/138/guide/the-best-vpn-services-of-2018 |publisher=[[PC Magazine]] |title=The Best VPN Services of 2018 |date=2018-01-15 |archivedate=2018-01-17 |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20180118002225/http://uk.pcmag.com/software/138/guide/the-best-vpn-services-of-2018 |quote=It's important to keep a few things in mind when evaluating which VPN service is right for you: reputation, performance, type of encryption used, transparency, ease of use, support, and extra features. }}</ref><ref name="techradar-bestvpn2018-test">{{cite web |last=Athow |first=Desire |url=http://www.techradar.com/vpn/best-vpn#how-to-test-a-vpn |publisher=[[TechRadar]] |title=The best VPN services for 2018 |work=How to test a VPN |date=2018-01-13 |archivedate=2018-01-18 |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20180117232459/http://www.techradar.com/vpn/best-vpn#how-to-test-a-vpn |quote=We were looking for features, value, and clear and honest pricing.

== Privacy ==

''PC Magazine'' recommends that users consider choosing a provider based in a country with no [[data retention]] laws, since that makes it easier for the service to keep a promise of no logging.<ref name="pcmag-bestvpn2018-trust">{{cite web |last=Eddy |first=Max |url=http://uk.pcmag.com/software/138/guide/the-best-vpn-services-of-2018 |publisher=[[PC Magazine]] |title=The Best VPN Services of 2018 |work=Can You Trust Your VPN Service? |date=2018-01-15 |archivedate=2018-01-17 |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20180118002225/http://uk.pcmag.com/software/138/guide/the-best-vpn-services-of-2018 }}</ref>
