First India did it and then America followed. We mean, it doesn’t make a lot of sense banning a harmless song and dance app, does it? Something needs to be done.

Now, just because the government banned it doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. There is one very obvious way of getting around an IP ban. The same way you can get around using another country’s Netflix: VPN.

A Virtual Private Network can say, transport your IP to some other country. For example, TikTok is completely legal and works fine in Canada (for now), so you can simply use a VPN to use a server in Canada.

We have an entire article on which VPNs work best with Netflix and how it isn’t technically illegal to use them but TikTok is a different animal.

So here we’ve found some of the best hybrid VPN services that you can use right now and get to enjoy your favorite app again, regardless of the ban.

WindScribe VPN: Too Good To Be True? In-depth Test & Review (2023)

Windscribe vpn review
Reading Time: 24 minutes
I can’t lie to you—I was really eager to formally test Windscribe this month, because it’s one of my FAVORITE VPNs.

If you haven’t heard of it before, that makes sense. If you have, that makes sense, too:

This is because Windscribe is one of the more popular VPNs, but it also isn’t THAT well-known.

I mean, it’s been downloaded over a MILLION times on the Google Play store, and its Chrome extension has nearly a MILLION users—to say nothing of the times it’s been downloaded on Apple products, or PCs or even Linux desktops.

Hotspot Shield Review: Detailed Test with Personal Experience (2023)

Hotspot Shield Review
Reading Time: 20 minutes
Even you’ve taken even a cursory glance at popular VPNs, there is no way you HAVEN’T come across the name Hotspot Shield.

To say Hotspot Shield is popular, or well-known, is an…understatement, to say the least.

Their website says this:

hotspot shield users

Which is INSANE.

I’ll admit to being a little skeptical. That number sounds a little too high—does it include multiple installs by the same account, accounts made by the same people, etc?

(I’ve actually got some comments on that number, but you’ll have to keep reading!)

IPVanish VPN Review (2023): Does it really Vanish our IP? Let’s find out…

IPVanish Review
Reading Time: 20 minutes
I don’t think it’s controversial to say that IPVanish is one of the best-known VPNs.

As a matter of fact, I had heard about IPVanish before I really even cared about VPNs—so at least to me, it’s one of the big names.

But is it recognized for its quality? Or is it just recognized?

TorGuard VPN Review: Hands-on review with Netflix/Torrent (2023)

TorGuard VPN Review
Reading Time: 19 minutes
TorGuard is a name that I guess you could consider a big deal. It’s got a

I’ve always been a little put off by the name: what’s the “tor” in TorGuard for?

Because people often confuse VPNs and TOR, I figured it was a sneaky attempt at dragging in less aware customers.

It turns out that the “Tor” does mean something else—but more on that later.

Free VPNs for Mac
Reading Time: 11 minutes

It’s a known fact that VPNs keep you safe. VPNs are available across multiple platforms, few of these include Mac.

There are several reasons you might have chosen a Mac device. Mac provides a unique user interface, good look and feel, hardware and so on. Multiple reasons, why users find it appealing.

However, what about its security? While you have antivirus and other security software, a VPN can provide ultimate security.

A point to note here is that not all VPN solutions offer support for Mac. So, in case you are a Mac user, you need to choose the solution after making a thorough review.

ProtonVPN Review (2023): Should you use it? Detailed Testing Inside

ProtonVPN Review
Reading Time: 17 minutes
I’m pretty familiar with a lot of VPNs, but ProtonVPN is one that’s always close to my heart.

Why? It’s hard to say exactly why, but I think their branding and origin story are fantastic.

ProtonVPN actually started with ProtonMail, a secure and encrypted mail service. The project was crowdfunded and founded by geniuses at CERN.

ProtonVPN was built to improve protection for people using ProtonMail, but it’s ballooned to become as famous as ProtonMail and is often used completely on its own.

To make matters even MORE heartening, ProtonMail and ProtonVPN BOTH have FREE versions.

Limited, of course, but it sure stands out as a sign of how serious ProtonMail/ProtonVPN are about their goals to protect people’s privacy.

Anyway, it’s pretty clear that at first glance, ProtonVPN seems to be one of the most legitimate VPNs around.

Founded by experts, crowd-sourced for privacy (not for streaming), located in a country known for its strong privacy laws, and providing reputable free software…

Surely, ProtonVPN must be one of the best VPNs in the world, right?

Well, I’ve tested it thoroughly, and I’ve got to say—the picture is a little more complicated. Continue reading
