There are many well rated VPNs to choose from and I've listed several in my Safety & Security Recommendations list. After having used with Hotspot Shield in 2015, and Private Internet Access in 2016 & 2017 (I had connectivity and support difficulties with both of them) I have decided to make Nord VPN my personal choice for 2018-2020.
In fact, I have partnered with NordVPN, because they are a company that puts privacy at the top of its mission, and offers VPN service with good speeds, the ability to use it on Mac, PC, Android and iPhone, and reasonable prices that allow for up to 6 of your devices to be online and using the VPN simultaneously. They're also the only VPN that PC Magazine has awarded 5 Stars in their annual review of best VPNs. Nord VPN is an Editors' Choice.
