We built Top10VPN.com around our core principles of openness, honesty and transparency. Your trust is of the utmost importance to us, which is why we’ll always be straight-up about how we review VPNs.
Every VPN goes through a standardized, rigorous, and in-depth test programme comprised of hours and hours of use at the hands of our experts. This means you can buy with confidence knowing that our reviews are fully up to date. To find out more, please take a look at How We Review VPNs.
When it comes to keeping our website running we are going to be entirely upfront with you on how we operate, how we make money, and how we can keep the site a free resource for our millions of visitors. Our aim is to put you, the reader, first and foremost at all times. First, a list of practices we never engage in:
- We will never accept money to review a product
- We will never accept money to change a product review
- We will never accept money to turn a blind eye to an issue or flaw
- We will never accept money to bias our research or investigations
Our Business Model
So, how do we make money? We receive fees from many of the providers we refer subscribers to. These fees are also known as affiliate commissions. The way it works is that when you click on a link or a button that takes you to a provider’s website and you purchase a VPN subscription, we may receive compensation for having referred a new customer. Not all the providers we feature compensate us, but these ones do:
Referral fees are only negotiated after we’ve fully conducted our review, meaning that money plays no factor in the process. The compensation we receive may, however, influence how, where and in what order products appear on the site.
You may have also noticed that we haven’t reviewed every single VPN product on the market. Rest assured, it’s our intention to cover as many as possible, and we’re getting there, but unfortunately we can’t promise to have total coverage.
Why are we telling you all of this? We aim to be the most knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy VPN resource on the web, and that trust begins right here on this page.
