Best VPN for Linux
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:28:15 am »
Currently, I am using PureVPN for Linux, but these days I am facing issues while browsing. After extensive research, I finally found the blog written exclusively for Linux VPN. I have decided to buy PIA or Express VPN, any suggestions guys??

Hi
I have been using PIA for the last couple of years and not had any problems with it. Make sure you choose one that doesn`t keep logs, not all do.

The alternative, I'm using ExpressVPN and this one also claims to not keep any logs.
I've been using it since the beginning of December and have had nothing to complain about, except the quantity of machines allowed to connect, which is three, when sometimes, I could do with that being 4. Other than that, nothing wrong with ExpressVPN.

As what I've observed that technically, AirVPN and Mullvad VPN are the two which are technically sound and which are perfect for the Linux OS. I've seen some people in my circle who found PureVPN, ExpressVPN or other a bit shiny and fancy. But they don't work well on Linux OS. Instead, they recommend either Mullvad or AirVPN. Plus they both are one of the few VPNs to meet Privacy tools I/O criteria.

I'd say it's really a case of trying out VPN's as you state that some say ExpressVPN doesn't work well with Linux, well, I've had no problems and find it works great.

It's also a case of system stability, what are people using their distro for? Are they using bleeding-edge SW or are they using stable SW, have they set up their system, installing only the requires SW for the limited tasks they want to do? There's TONS of factors involved so to say that a VPN is unusable with a distro is misleading info.

I'd do a 'try before you buy' method and make your own mind up.
