- ProtonVPN - VPN service that comes with a ProtonMail account. Open source. Based in Switzerland.
- Mullvad - Paid only (via cash, credit, bank wire, PayPal, or Bitcoin). Doesn't require ANY personal information to use - you don't even make an account. Accepts port forwarding. Open source. Based in Sweden.
- IVPN - Paid only (via cash, credit/debit, PayPal, and Bitcoin), including $2 for a single week, if you only need a VPN every once in a while and can't justify long-term plans. No logs. No personal info required for account creation. Based in Gibraltar.
- NordVPN comes off as really sketchy to me. While it's based outside the Fourteen Eyes, it's closed source and pretty secretive in general. I have no hard evidence they're doing anything wrong aside from a few security breaches, but my gut tells me there's something off about this company. Therefore I can't personally recommend it.
