This guide presents you with the best VPN services currently available. All of these services have unlimited bandwidth or data, fast speeds, military-grade encryption, support for multiple platforms, and many more features. Personally, I use VPN services mostly for watching US Netflix and securing myself if I’m on public Wi-Fi. What are you guys planning to use your VPN service for, or is it a secret? Let me know in the comments.

List of World’s best VPN Services with all features:

Nord VPN

First up we have Nord VPN. In terms of privacy, Nord VPN is one of the better options. They are based in Panama, which has very good privacy laws and no data retention legislation. This means Nord VPN can maintain a pretty solid privacy policy. Their VPN service is available for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. But they do not have an Amazon Fire TV app yet, so setting Nord VPN up for Kodi on a Fire TV device is a bit more challenging and there are some better VPN options for that. The Nord VPN clients have some interesting features: in addition to the usual military-grade encryption, Killswitch, DNS leak protection, and so on. For example, you can connect either to a random Nord VPN server in a certain country or to any individual server, most VPN clients can’t do this.

Also there are some speciality servers such as anti-DDOS servers, which can protect live streamers and gamers from DDoS attacks. Nord VPN connection speeds were excellent when testing in Europe and the US. I was able to download through BitTorrent and access US Netflix without any issues. Their prices are very affordable, costing only three dollars and twenty nine cents per month. For a two year contract, Nord VPN also supports many cryptocurrencies through the coin payments service. There is also a 30-day money-back guarantee. I can recommend their service for general use like downloading Netflix, streaming, gaming, and live streaming especially for those streamers who might need some extra DDoS protection.

ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN is another really good VPN service that I can highly recommend. They are based in the British Virgin Islands. BVI is a British overseas territory, but it is not part of the UK or the EU. This means they can make a lot of their own laws and offer similar advantages as Panama does for Nord VPN. The advantage that ExpressVPN has over Nord is that in addition to the usual platforms they have an Amazon Fire TV app making it much easier to set up a VPN on Kodi and Fire TV devices. However with ExpressVPN, you can only connect three devices, compared to six devices with Nord VPN.

ExpressVPN also has servers in 94 different countries, compared to 60 countries for Nord VPN. So if you’re looking for a VPN server in a very specific country then Express VPN is the way to go. According to my testing, ExpressVPN servers in both Europe and the US were very fast. I was able to download torrents at high speeds and watch US Netflix on some servers, but others were blocked. ExpressVPN is a bit more expensive, at $8.32 per month for a one year plan. They support Bitcoin payments and have a 30-day money-back guarantee. I recommend ExpressVPN for general use, downloading Kodi and Fire TV, gaming, and also streaming services. But it’s not the best for Netflix.

Windscribe VPN

Next up we have Windscribe VPN. Windscribe is based in Canada, which is part of the five eyes intelligence alliance and it does have some data retention laws. But these laws are generally believed to not apply to VPN services, especially considering Windscribe has a fairly solid privacy policy. You can even sign up for an account without an email address. The Windscribe VPN service is in my opinion of similar quality as Nord VPN and ExpressVPN, although they have less servers and in the future their privacy protection may suffer due to being located in Canada. You can use Windscribe on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS.

They also have a Fire TV app and web browser proxy extensions for Chrome and Firefox. The others have extensions too, but Windscribe was one of the first to offer them. Connection speeds for their European and US servers were quite good, bit torrent downloading worked with excellent speeds and I was able to access us Netflix with their Windscribe US server option. Windscribe is also the only VPN service in this list with a free account option, with up to 15 gigabytes of free monthly bandwidth. Their paid service costs only three dollars 70 cents per month for a two-year subscription. Bitcoin payments are accepted as well. I can recommend their service for general use, downloading, gaming, Netflix streaming as well as Kodi and Fire TV devices.

VyprVPN

Then we have VyprVPN by Golden Frog. The service is based in Switzerland, which is not the best or the worst location for a VPN service because they have data retention laws. VyprVPN also does log your IP address and quite a bit of metadata, which means it is not the best VPN for serious privacy protection. The main advantage VyprVPN has over the other VPN services in this list is that they operate their own custom VPN protocol called Chameleon. This might give VyprVPN an edge in terms of bypassing firewalls that are built to detect more common VPN protocols such as Open VPN or utp. Chameleon is however only available for premium subscribers.

VyprVPN also supports all of the standard platforms in addition to Fire TV, Apple TV and Android TV. When I tested VyprVPN, their connection speeds were good on servers in Europe and the US. BitTorrent works fine and it was also possible for me to access US Netflix with no problems. A one-year subscription for VyprVPN is reasonably priced, at five dollars per month for a standard account and six dollars sixty-seven cents for a premium account.

They don’t accept cryptocurrencies. However they offer a three day free trial, but no money-back guarantee. I can recommend VyprVPN for general use, Kodi and Fire TV devices, gaming, Netflix streaming and possibly for use in other countries like China which can sometimes block more common VPN protocols such as Open VPN.

TorGuard VPN

Another somewhat decent VPN service is TorGuard VPN. They are however based in the United States. So I do not recommend TorGuard VPN for Americans due to the Cloud Acts which became a law in February 2018. Basically it forces companies based in the United States to hand over data, even from servers that they operate in foreign countries. If a court rules that they should do so, all your data belongs to Uncle Sam. Additionally, the TorGuard VPN privacy policy is somewhat vague. They don’t mention exactly what data they log or how they use it.

TorGuard VPN does however sell pre-configured Internet routers with custom firmware that have TorGuard VPN installed. So if you want to connect all your devices at home to a VPN and you’re not technologically literate enough to do it yourself or just lazy then this might be a good option for you. They also have custom VPN clients for all the usual platforms but no Fire TV app. Their connection speeds were good on all of their servers that I tested. I was also able to download torrents and access US Netflix. As with every other VPN in this list, they have no DNS leaks and a strong encryption.

The cheapest TorGuard VPN subscription is four dollars sixteen cents per month for a two-year contract. Bitcoin and Litecoin are accepted as payment in addition to the usual options like PayPal and Credit Card. TorGuard VPN has a seven day money-back guarantee. I can recommend TorGuard VPN for general use, downloads and Netflix streaming. But I advise Americans to avoid US-based VPN services.
