published on: 07 September 2018 written by: Sebastian Petrosi

Post-Snowden era has brought great awareness about users’ privacy on the web. Everyone on every social media site spread awareness and reviews about the best online privacy tools among which VPNs are one of the most discussed tools.

Among all the social media sites, what can beat Reddit when it comes to the honest rants, reviews, and users’ POVs.

So, here we decided to ask Reddit which VPNs are best. We actually did not ask Reddit (saw what we did there twice), we just went on to the best place on the web as per one of our editors to find out what Redditors are saying about the various VPN services and which of them are best VPNs as per Reddit.

The Best VPN as per Reddit or Redditors

Who is better to get expert opinions about VPN services from than those who do this all day for real. We have virtually or better say digitally seen and met some of the brilliant people on Reddit who know a lot more than their own stuff.

This piece is based upon the raw, real, and expert opinions and reviews by people on Reddit about their experiences with various VPN services.

For this, we just spent hours on Reddit and looked for various opinions of people about different providers in hundreds of threads and tens of subreddits. It was hard to come out of Reddit and actually write this down, but we did. Things we do for love!

So, these are the best VPNs according to Reddit and our ranking is based upon the experiences of Redditors.

  1. ExpressVPN
  2. NordVPN
  3. Private Internet Access
  4. IPVanish
  5. CyberGhost

But before we go deeper in each of these services, we would like to mention one of the most upvoted post of 2017 that is actually the photo of a newspaper ad by one of the most popular VPN services Private Internet Access. Reddit loved this and so did we!

ExpressVPN [$6.67/Month]

Expressvpn free trial

One of most impressive reasons why Reddit says it is the best VPN is that ExpressVPN is one of the very few which can still help users access US Netflix from any other location. Apart from this, its overall performance and speed is what hooked many Redditors up with them despite the fact that it is one of the most expensive services in the industry.

In addition, the apps are also very impressive in terms of usability and design. Reddit keeps everything into consideration and when it says something is decent, we believe it really is. Also, we found that it is also proved to be commendable when it came to P2P for many users on Reddit.

NordVPN [$2.99/Month]

NordVPN is also regarded as the US Netflix unblocker because after ExpressVPN it is the one which helped users go through the blockades on US Netflix. Also, the Redditors foun its speed to be impressive too, which we found in our evaluation too.

In addition, Reddit also seems to love how NordVPN performs, specially the apps. Who does not like great usability, convenience, and the reliable service? That’s the reason why Redditors regarded NordVPN as the best VPN too.

Private Internet Access [$2.50/Month]

PIA - cheap vpn

Apart from that newspaper ad, we would love to mention that Private Internet Access has its own subreddit which has more than 3300 subscribers. We think it is because of their amazing tagline i.e. ‘always use protection’. We practice what we preach and I hope they do too.

So, PIA is best because of its really affordable price and the speeds on Reddit. Many Redditors claimed that they get better speed on PIA than various other providers.

Also, Private Internet Access is also favorable because of its P2P support and string stance on protecting the privacy of users. However, it still is sometimes condemned on Reddit to be a US based provider.

IPVanish

IPVanish Review

IP Vanish has been one of the most impressive services and it is still regarded as a good service. Many users on Reddit have complimented the service for its good speeds and performance. It is a good service when it comes to streaming and string connection which are the great traits.

In addition, IP Vanish has been impressive in terms for many users but it certainly soes not impress many when it comes to price, because you got to give people the best bang for the buck. With higher cost, great performance and features should be there. That is why Ben Parker ‘With great powers comes great responsibilities’. Sorry if you think it does not fit well, but wanted to remember Uncle Ben.

CyberGhost

Cheap VPN Service

CyberGhost is one of the oldest VPN services there are and it has been popularly used because of its freemium model. However, since the privacy has become a great deal for the world on the web, CyberGhost could not impress many on Reddit.

The speeds of CyberGhost are not bad for everyone. This Redditor had some option messed up which reduced his speed but then he fixed it and CyberGhost provided decent speeds.

Although Redditors talk about it a lot, but it is mainly because of the free version, however, it still comes among the best VPN as per Reddit.
