Ask HN: What VPN service are you currently using?

I used https://encrypt.me and really liked their client. To be honest, I didn’t know a whole lot about them, but that wasn’t a primary concern factor at the time.. it was who I was vpn-ing to be unseen that drove me to a vpn at the time.

Lawsuit names NordVPN, Tesonet in proxy data extraction scheme

Somewhat expensive, but I've been very happy with Encrypt.me since the beta of Cloak here several years ago.

Ask HN: What VPN service are you currently using?

Happy user of Encrypt.Me here as well.I was a customer when they were called Cloak & were just 3 guys writing some of the best Mac & iPhone software. They had the best customer service I've ever experienced (Dave spent a lot of time helping me with some weird networking issues related to MacPostFactor on an outdated Mac), and with my business clients we used to talk about Cloak as the kind of company we aspired to work with - genuine, trustworthy & talented people.The founders have since sold the company (hence the rename to Encrypt.Me), and it now has Windows & Android versions. But as they've grown & the founders left, it's lost a bit of that small indie / Jerry Maguire feel where you knew all the developers & customer support team by name. It's still good, just feels like your favorite underground band has gone mainstream.I use them for hotel/cafe WiFi protection & testing how my website looks from overseas.

Ask HN: How do I make sure my non-technical parents are safe online?

It blocks ads at the router level as well as malware sites, phishing sites, certain downloads, etc..It’s not perfect, but better than anything else I’ve ever used. Also comes with subscriptions to 1Password, Malwarebytes and Encrypt.me.
