    It won’t solve all of your privacy problems, but it can help make you a less tempting target for hackers.

    A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is like a tunnel you can use to pass through a public network, protecting your data from outside eyes. Whether you're worried about Internet Service Providers (ISP) selling your data, or want to stay safe on public Wi-Fi, a VPN can help protect you.

    However, while a VPN will keep you safe at your local coffee shop, it does come with a cost. Using a VPN means your VPN provider will know everything about your browsing habits. This also makes VPN providers a tempting target for hackers.

    This means picking the right VPN service is serious business. Most VPN providers claim they keep no logs, but this is rarely verified. You're stuck taking companies at their word. For this reason, we've limited our testing to VPN providers that have been independently audited and published the results.
