    ProtonVPN is good because it's operated from Switzerland so it doesn't collect or give out data, plus it's unlimited. The downside is that without the premium you are going to encounter slowdowns . Been thinking about trying Bitdefender VPN as it's relatively dirt cheap, you don't need to sign up for a long term plan and it's torrent friendly.

    A little tip... whenever they advertise "P2P support", make sure that actually means port forwarding... because it often doesn't

    If you live where governments monitoring their citizens who can't have free will to express their opinions or do internet censorship or companies making lawsuits because copyrights infringement like pirating. VPN could save a lot regarding privacy and other things like security and money.

    For those cases, I'd recommend Tor instead... it provides anonymity by design (as opposed to by policy) and its usage can be concealed via pluggable transports.

    True that, If someone uses tor he/she shouldn't use google's sites. And yes, he/she can use tor for everyday use, it is slower than any "normal" browser.

    Don't worry, the multiple captchas and blocks will prevent you from doing that in the first place. Same goes for a lot of stuff that's behind Cloudflare

    I've had slow Internet service for a large chunk of my life, so I'm used to that. But for others, it will be a deal breaker. Also, good look trying to stream video better than 360p. Nonetheless, when it comes to online anonymity, Tor and knowing how to use it are as good as it gets.
