As the importance of cybersecurity and online privacy grows, more and more VPNs hit the market every single day. Figuring out how they differ can be time consuming and complicated. Our goal at AlwaysVPN is to take the guesswork out of the process and recommend VPN products by the most robust features and top-of-the-line security encryption.
Our Review Process
When conducting reviews, our team of experts test every VPN firsthand to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.
With years of dedicated experience writing about VPNs, cybersecurity and technology, our experts use the highest standard of testing for every VPN we review. We rate every VPN based on:
- Logging Policy
- Speed Stats
- Server Locations/Network
- Streaming/Torrenting Info
We believe in an independent, unbiased and transparent approach to any product we review or recommend to our readers. We want to make sure every recommendation we make is something we stand behind. Therefore, we do not accept compensation in exchange for positive reviews or recommendations. While we maintain partnerships with many VPN providers around the globe, those partnerships never influence our feedback or evaluations in any way.Compensation & Methodology
