If you’re looking for a VPN provider with desktop software then you’ve come to the right place. I’m going to let you know about three top VPN providers who all offer Windows desktop software. They actually all offer Mac desktop software too, but for the purpose of this article I’ll concentrate on Windows software.
If you’re new to the world of VPN providers or Virtual Private Networks as they’re known, then all the lingo and jargon can be confusing. They sound so technical, yet the benefits of using them also sound so tempting. In a world of censorship, snooping and malicious hackers, more and more everyday users are looking at VPNs as a way of enabling content access but also safeguarding their online usage.
If you find yourself as one of those users but are put off by what seems like something only a technical minded computer user would use then do not panic. Many commercial providers of VPN services have long been offering easy solutions to enable access to VPN servers and make your connection not only secure, but also anonymous. The fact this can protect your connection and personal data plus enable access to geo-restricted content is certainly a major reason why everyone these days should consider using one.
So while it is still technically possible to set up a more manual connection to a VPN provider, the three VPN providers below are some of the best and offer custom Windows software that can have you up and running within seconds. These are true one-click solutions and take out any technical know-how removing headaches for even the least technically minded user.
IPVanish are similar in that their software is rather easy to use. However it also has slightly more configurable options.
Users can select certain groups of servers in certain locations and also select them on a large map view. This is especially handy if you want to consider distances or get a quick overview of where all their servers are located. Once selected, just press Connect and you’re up and running.
IPVanish have one package that varies in length, 1 year costs US$77.99, 3 months US$26.99 and 1 month US$10.00. (Approx £51 / £18 / £6.65)
VyprVPN offer one of the easiest to use desktop clients, although it is stylish, it is also extremely one-click.
Simply select a country you want to connect to, then hit the large Connect button, within a few seconds you’ll be protected and also anonymous.
VyprVPN offer various packages, their most popular the “Pro” package is as little as US$99 per year or US$14.99 per month (Approx £65 / £9.97)
A nice feature of the service is the free 3 day trial so you can try it to see how easy it is before committing to pay.
LiquidVPN has a less visually impressive software but very functional. The desktop client neatly tucks away in your notification bar or can be expanded for a fuller desktop view.
Easy to navigate to both VPN protocol and also the country you wish to connect to. Within 2 or 3 clicks you can be connected and protected and a very reasonable price with excellent speeds.
LiquidVPN have a range of packages to suit all needs although we recommend their Road Warrior package with a price of US$84.00 per year, US$50.00 6 months, US$28.00 3 months or US$10.00 per month. (Approx £55 / £33 / £18.62 / £6.65)
