To truly understand whether a VPN is right for you, there's no substitute for trying it.
In our experience, you can get a good idea of a VPN’s quality simply by drilling down into its website, and taking a detailed look at how the firm presents itself and its products.
It won't help you see whether clients are easy to use, servers are fast, or if the provider will unblock the sites and services you need.
A bad provider will focus almost entirely on generic VPN benefits, like encrypting your connection or helping you access blocked websites.
Crucial points like the number of countries covered or the apps provided might not even be mentioned, and there's little hope of finding details on kill switches, protocols supported or anything faintly technical.
There's usually a very simple reason for this total lack of boasting: the provider doesn't have anything to boast about.
