I don't normally use one, but I have the free version of Windscribe. It gives you 10GB free per month.

I like it.

What is it?

You can use Windscribe for free, for as long as you like. With a confirmed email address you get 10GB/month of data, unlimited connections...

Think thats the same deal I got too. Had to sign up for 3 years, and after doing some research, Nord was the right one for me anyway, cause of Torrents.

My ISP, ATT, stopped my ability to download torrents, about 4 months ago...after years of allowing me to do so. I finally settled on Seedr, and I'm back to the way I was (before ATT got all pi$$y with me).

Whoa, what? I've never heard this before. lmao was it because they kept getting copyright e-mails and you ignored them?

I got one e-mail, and I avoided the file they flagged...but kept torrenting other stuff.

Seedr collects the torrents for you, and you download them as ZIP files (if you wish), and do so via a secure (https) connection.

P.S. The file they flagged was Eddie Murphy's "The Golden Child" (movie).

Spectrum and Cox have both sent me cease and desist emails. Sometimes I forget to turn on my VPN...

When I was with Frontier, I never got a cease and desist letter or email and I wasn't using a VPN. I was pretty d flagrant with my downloads too.

I'm using Private Internet Access right now and I pay $40 a year. There's usually some promo to sign up...I want to say I paid $30 for my first year.

I had IPVanish for a while and was pretty happy with it.

But now I found a new stealth way to download music (my primary interest outside of the Mighty Lakers) without the need for a VPN, PM me if interested!

I use NordVPN. They are based in Germany and do not keep records of user IP addresses, so they would not be able to supply information even if subpoenaed.

This is extremely helpful for operating my numerous LG sockpuppets-- Jokede, Omar Little, and DancingBarry himself. Nobody would ever suspect that I have successfully infiltrated the highest ranks of LG management.

Same here, probably renewed for even less. They even have a nice cli client for linux.

VNP? Visiting nurse program?

I use windscribe, serves my basic purpose just fine... no complicated configuration, just press one button to activate, download my torrents, press stop button when I'm done.

I change location on occasion. What's the advantage of VPN? It doesn't stop hackers.

VPN is for privacy/anonymity for your online activity. Also, you can use it to gain access to free local services that may not be accessible from other countries (such as boxing or other sport streaming services) even if you pay.

Would going incognito accomplish the same thing?

Sometimes, you need to hide your IP to get things done in a nondescript manner.
