Truly comprehensive, excellent coverage
Truly comprehensive, excellent coverage of all security issues and very well written. Response to my query about VPN usage was rapid and completely helpful. It is interesting to compare this site with the advice from The Freedom of the Press Foundation. This site is so much better, and written in clear, and properly grammatical, english.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I recently returned from travelling for several months in countries where I knew I would have difficulty accessing certain sites and apps like skype. Worried about not being able to talk to my family and friends, a colleague recommended this site to me. I had no idea what VPNs were but the site was super easy to use and thanks to the great information, I had no problems staying in touch with folks back home. Highly recommend this site!

Excellent Support from Top10VPN
Callum at Top10VPN really came to my rescue after I was frustrated by not being able to find any clear info on my VPN related issues (related to multiple installations, Email conflicts, usability etc). I received a reply from Callum in the UK in no time and we exchanged several subsequent emails in an efficient and competent manner which is not at all the norm. Much less so since I am no direct customer. So glad I came across their site. Many thanks indeed. CV
