People often ask me questions about cybersecurity. Over the next several weeks I’m going to share some of these questions here.
Q: What should I look for when shopping for a VPN for everyday use?
A: For most people, performance and cost are not the top criteria for choosing a VPN. You should first consider the security of the VPN; otherwise, you are exposing yourself to situations like this:
In one “comprehensive study of almost 300 VPN apps downloaded by millions of Android users from Google’s official Play Market finds that the vast majority of them can’t be fully trusted. Some of them don’t work at all.”
Since many of the providers studied are cross-platform, these results are likely true for devices other than Android as well. **ExpressVPN** is a good choice because:
- It does not sell your browsing history to raise revenue
- A reputable firm (Bishop Fox) has evaluated its security and gave it good marks
