VPN / Virtual Private Network

I have been trying to figure out if I need to purchase a VPN. It appears to possibly solve a lot of computer / cell phone / tablet on-line potential issues.

Cost seems to be between $free and $10 per month.

If you have an opinion on why or why not...please share it.

Thanks for your input!

Check out SurfShark. As little as $1.99 a month, no data limit, great speeds due to dozens of servers.

Depends on your use case.

When using 'public' WiFi you should VPN.

When at home not so much unless you want to keep your browsing private from your ISP.

I use Private Internet Access. Reasonable price, 6 (I think) devices included. Supports Windows, Mac, Linux, Iphone, android. Reasonable speeds. Support seems good, but I've never used it.

We use Private Internet Access as well. Great folks, great support. Note that some folks may have their wifi routers locked down so tight that they do not allow VPN passthrough.


If you're staying at a campground for a long time, you can ask them to allow VPN traffic over their router. Tell them it's like social distancing for computers.

We have Express VPN and like the value as well as the service as miketo post sometimes you can’t use a vpn with a public WiFi but it’s a rarity and I do feel bette4 using a vpn. Sorry I don’t recall what our annual cost is, I’m thinking 6$ a month.
