PIA is one of my favorite provider when it comes to VPN’s, it’s reliable and one of the oldest providers I’m aware of. TorrentFreak again writes an article about the current findings based on the story back from 2017. This is now the second time PIA was inspected and it shows yet again that you can trust them.
According to multiple reports, it seems that China is cracking down on ProtonVPN recently and blocking their domain. This little guide shows how to circumvent that block and still be able to connect to your ProtonVPN.
I’m a VPN user since more than 20 years now and I tried most of the top ones personally I can’t tell many negative things about what I’ve seen so far, NordVPN, ProtonVPN, PIA and others doing a good job. Some providers are slower or faster, some have different jurisdiction and at the end, you never know what they really see and if they hold their promises – it’s more a game about words, trust and marketing phrases. There some charts which are often outdated or incorrect, the most accurate you will find is this one but at the end, you need to test out how their service performs at your end.
ProtonMail, lemme think, ah that rings a bell, right! Good support – offers a fantastic VPN and of course most people known the service for it’s email service. ProtonMail now ends a long beta test and rolls out some useful new features for everyone, IMAP & SMTP support are only one of these new changes. The latest changes to their apps or services can be found in their official Blog announcements.
The WebRTC story isn’t new and since 2015 everyone should already aware of it, sadly some VPN providers still haven’t addressed this problem. A simple configuration change on their server configuration can already prevent it, but seems some services are still weak and at the end it’s up to the user to react on it or ignore it.
When you choose a VPN provider you might also want to do some P2P or use a SOCKS5 proxy to forward your downloads e.g. via IDM or other programs. Personally I use PIA for qBittorent and to establish a proxy connection to my Router and Raspberry PI, so this is an important function (for me).
Keep in mind that port forwarding can be dangerous.
“Revolutionary VPN Project” is what WireGuard claims to be and it also says that’s overall faster than well-known solutions like OpenVPN. To be fair the application, the service and the entire development is still under construction but I want anyway take a critical look at it right now – do answer the question if it’s already worth testing it or not.
