The free Psiphon VPN functions well and comes with plenty to offer, from speed of use to multiple protocol options. It's also easy to install and comes with clear terms and conditions. Among them: Some limited data collection, used to support Psiphon's ad-based revenue model and keep the experience free. Overall, Psiphon VPN represents a solid option, even if the paid alternatives tend to come with a wider raft of features.
TorGuard is a feature-rich VPN aimed principally at users who want to keep their peer-to-peer file-sharing private. However, TorGuard has a lot to offer other users. It can ensure a more secure, private connection when you’re using the Internet on a free, unsecured public WiFi network, and also enable you to unlock websites or streaming services that are blocked from one country or another.
File sharers don’t always want others to know that they’re sharing and who they’re sharing with, so it makes sense to use a VPN to hide their location and identity.
While file-sharing itself is perfectly legal, it’s commonly used as a means for distributing copyrighted material, including movies and digital music. This sort of file-sharing is illegal, and Tech.co in no way condones such conduct. Our recommendation for TorGuard as a service is purely based on its merits as a VPN for creating a secure, high-speed and anonymised connection to the internet.

What Is TorGuard?
If you know a bit about online privacy, you might expect the TorGuard VPN to have some connection with the Tor project and anonymous browser, but it’s actually named TorGuard due to its focus on protecting BitTorrent users.
TorGuard has a strong global presence, with over 3000 servers spread across 55 countries. Its features are designed to give you a higher level of privacy and anonymity while browsing the web than many other VPNs.
It works across Windows and macOS, plus and Android and iOS devices, and you can use it on five devices simultaneously with the one account.
Before you make up your mind, see how TorGuard compares to some of the other top VPNs that we've tested. Though it's certainly one of the best VPNs we've come across, it's bettered by a few other brands – some of which are cheaper, too.
