About Us

Top10VPN.com is an independent VPN review and comparison website. We conduct detailed VPN testing and analysis, and publish research in support of an open and secure internet.

Founded in 2016 by technology entrepreneur Antonio Argiolas, Top10VPN.com champions internet freedom, digital privacy and security through our independent testing, research and investigations.

We focus on testing and reviewing VPN software. VPNs are a key tool to fight against governments, corporations, and hostile actors invading our online lives, restricting our access to the open web, and targeting our devices to steal sensitive data transfers.

Our in-depth VPN reviews, independent research, and expert advice help guide our readers towards a safer and more private online experience.

Our mission is to make digital freedom, privacy and security simple and possible for everyone.

Why VPNs?

The search for internet freedom has driven a quarter of the world’s population to subscribe to a VPN. They’re the foremost tool for anyone concerned about their digital privacy.

The problem is, not all VPN software is created equally. Some VPN services can even jeopardize the very privacy and security they’re designed to protect.

We’ve spent thousands of hours testing the best VPNs. Last year we helped over 10 million internet users from 190 countries find a trustworthy, safe VPN service.

Every VPN is put through the same rigorous 10 step review process comprising of hours and hours of use at the hands of our experts.
