I tend to think of the internet as the great abyss of the unknown that wields both the power of destruction and good depending on how you decide to maneuver your way around it. More often than not, you would prefer to do that safely and avoid getting sucked into security holes that will render you powerless and your data at risk. Essentially, in order to have a pleasant experience while on the internet, it’s important to arm oneself with the necessary tools that we more often than not shove aside.

Virtual private networks in short for VPNs are the recommended industry-standard on safeguarding your personal space on the world wide web. It is argued that VPNs are unessential for the typical Joe or Jane, but I disagree with that statement considering how vulnerable the internet space has become and even a rock-solid platform such as Chrome OS – with all the security bells and whistles – will not guarantee a safe haven on the net. On that note, below are our recommended list of VPNs for your Chrome OS device.

Cyberghost

Cyberghost entered the VPN arena less than a decade ago and the service has managed to garner overwhelming interest over the course of the past few years. The service is based in Romania and outside the 14 eyes which essentially means that they are not bound by any restrictive laws that would supposedly limit some functionalities of the app like P2P file sharing.

Cyberghost boasts of an impressive 1300+ servers scattered around the globe with a fair price to match that. Before you download it, read our full review here.

Express VPN

Express VPN ranks first on a majority of VPN recommendations online and it earned this reputation with a performance that ticks all the boxes. Due to its reputation in the VPN community, the service has managed to earn the title of the defacto Standard of a private network for their competitors to emulate.

The service is headquartered in the British VIrgin Islands essentially keeping it out of the 14 eyes and keeping your risk of exposure to some governmental body at a bare minimum. Express VPN also boasts some of the best data speeds in the industry, strong AES-256 bit encryption, P2P file sharing, great customer support, TOR compatibility together with the best in class Linux VPN client.

Pricing might be a major con for some folks on a budget, otherwise, Express VPN delivers on just about every other aspect…

IPVanish

This VPN service comes next on our list of recommendations. WIth over 1000+ VPN servers in over 60 countries, IPvanish also boasts of a military grade 256-bit AES encryption, torrenting support, unlimited bandwidth, together with a zero-log policy. Like Express VPN, IPvanish is not for the budget-minded folk looking for a service with a fair pricing.

NordVPN

Nord VPN is another highly-acclaimed private network service that has been in the spotlight for quite some time now especially since it recently got awarded the BestVPN’s best Customer Service experience for the year 2018. NordVPN also offers a no-log policy, an automatic kill switch, DNS leak protection, 256-bit AES encryption, great speed as well as P2P support.
