Best 5 VPNs to Maintain Privacy on Google Chrome

Google Chrome is an excellent option for a browser and is only growing in popularity. This is not likely to change in anytime soon, but you need to be aware that Google Chrome isn’t the most privacy conscious service available to you. You are vulnerable to have your information intercepted on public networks and Google itself might be interested in tracking your information.


This is why you need a tool such as a Virtual Private Network (VPN) so you can protect yourself from whoever might be curious about you. It is a service that will connect your computer to an offsite secure server that will hide your IP address. It will do so via an encrypted connection that will let no one be able to see what you are doing online. You will need to pick out a good one that works well with Google Chrome and gives you a wide variety of options for your investment.

Here are five of the best VPNs to keep you safe on Google Chrome:

  1. ExpressVPN

    ExpressVPN might be considered pricey by some, but it is most certainly one of the best options for you to use on any device for any purpose. It generally has everything you could ask for in a VPN, and the high speeds will allow you to watch or listen to whatever you want while on Google Chrome. This is important as on lesser VPNs you might find yourself waiting for videos to buffer or pictures to load. On top of that, ExpressVPN has the very best customer service team in the industry. You will get a quick response to your inquiries, simple as that. Try to think of it as the premium option for your private browsing needs.


  2. IPVanish

    IPVanish is a great service that has no weakness and it will most certainly keep you safe on Google Chrome no matter what you are looking to accomplish or where you are. It boasts speed and you can expect speed combined with an ease of use that is great for those who are new to the technology. The only downfall is the service’s cost. It costs just as must as other services but doesn’t offer anything exceptional. Nevertheless, it is a great all-around option for those looking for a simple and working VPN.


  3. NordVPN

    After taking a closer look, one can say that NordVPN is a bit more specialized than the other VPNs on the market. It is for those obsessed with privacy and protection, and the features of NordVPN allow you to have a veritable safe room online. No one will know what you are doing, and I’d like to see someone try. The tradeoff is that all of these extra features will necessarily reduce the speed of your connection, meaning that on Chrome you might be stuck reading documents and articles unless you want to wait for a lot of buffering or have an absurdly strong connection and computer to begin with.


  4. PureVPN

    PureVPN is probably best used by travelers and businesspeople, making an effort to state that it is great for travel. All things considered, it is a great VPN for online freedom, and using Google Chrome, you might be looking for that freedom. You’ll find it compatible with nearly any device, so if it runs your favorite browser you can use it just fine. You will also find it quite reliable with minimal downtime and few errors.


  5. HideMyAss

    HideMyAss is quite possibly the most popular VPN on the market, dominating the market via its expansion and the benefits that come with that expansion. You will be happy to know that there are plenty of servers for you to choose from based in a great number of countries (they advertise 190). You will also be allowed to use it on more than one device at once. The only negatives are that there are reports of it being a bit slower than the other services mentioned and that the customer service isn’t as fast as it could be.

Conclusion

VPNs are common and you need to watch out for faulty products and scams. It can be disheartening to believe that products meant to protect you on Google Chrome can do anything but that, but you need to prepare yourself so that you can stay anonymous online and allow no one access to your private information.

If you are looking for more good recommendations or would like to hear more about each of the above services (and others), it would be best to check out some VPN reviews from one of the following websites:

  1. I have noticed that you wrote about finding the best VPN in your article articlerouter.com/2015/11/best-5-vpns-to-maintain-privacy-on.html.
    Thanks, it is really important for people to be aware of their privacy!
    While securethoughts.com/vpn-review/ is a great site to find a vpn, I think you may want to share also www.vpnmentor.com which includes not only the top 10 vpns, but rather all vpns out there (more than 230).
    Isn't it fair to also let users know of the underdog vpns that are maybe less known, but do a good job?
    Thanks in advance,

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

Online shopping sites are making a lot of money with the use of web-based applications to sell products, collect payments an arrange delivery. The only work left to do is pack and send the boxes.

Smart Investors: Three Real Estate Scams You Should Never Fall For

“Honesty is a very expensive gift. Do not expect it to come from cheap people.” –Warren Buffet

 There has never been any doubt that succeeding in real estate takes hard work, determination and commitment.

 It is not some get rich quick scheme as some have been misled to believe. It takes laborious work to see any real results and unfortunately, not all individuals in the industry are prepared for that kind of dedication just to succeed. Resultantly, some would give up with the belief that they are not cut out for that kind of line of work while the rest would resort to sleazy machinations just to guarantee a sale.

 From there, all sorts of scams and fraudulent schemes are cooked up and it is unfortunate that there are investors (especially novices and first-timers) who would be none the wiser and would buy into the scam. No doubt, the real estate industry is a sector that can be extremely profitable. But as it was stressed above, it requires hard work and unfortunately, some people a…

How to Safely Move Computers to a New Office

When moving to a new office, you have a lot to plan. Not only are you boxing up your belongings, you need to move the furniture and computers. With some patience and a plan, you can successfully move your old office to a new office easily and quickly.

If you have old office furniture and don’t want to bring it to the new office, then consider selling it or placing it in storage. If you think you may want to use that old desk again, then wrap in nicely in storage wrap and store it in a storage unit. If you don’t want to use that bookshelf in your new office but it cost you a lot of money and you’ll never find one like it again, move it to storage. A small storage unit for office furniture can be purchased for under $100 a month.

Moving computers can be done if you take the proper steps. Don’t just toss computers into a box for the move. First, turn off all computer equipment and unplug them. Wait until the computers have cooled down before doing anything else.

If you are moving a lapt…
