Linux systems are usually quite secure on their own but a dedicated VPN solution will add a valuable boost to the security level of you PC.
Read below for a comprehensive list of VPN solutions that are currently available for Linux.
ExpressVPN offers a great command-line interface that is easy to use while also offering a rich experience. For those that prefer a graphical user interface a browser extension is also available. As expected the program requires a subscription in order to use it.
The cheapest option is a twelve months plan for $6.67 per month. A trial option is not available but a 30-day money-back guarantee will return our investment if you are not pleased by the experience.
NordVPN offers a wealth of features that is hard to refuse. Among them we can count a dedicated ad blocker and a DNS switcher that are easy to use and control by using the command line window.
A dedicated CLI client offers additional features. DoubleVPN will allow you to connect to two different servers in order to buff your security. Special obfuscated servers are particularly useful for people that live in countries where certain sites are actively blocked by the government. Those that need P2P connections and prefer to use TOR are also covered.
One month of service costs $11.95 but for those that want a long-time solution a 36 months plan is available for $2.99 per month.
VPN Unlimited may not be fastest solution on the list but it offers a clean and intuitive GUI that also features a variety of options.
The service allows users to choose between the classic OpenVPN protocol, a more advanced IKEv2 protocol and a proprietary KeepSolid Wise protocol (created by the company that also owns the developer). The service works pretty well and the graphical user interface makes it accessible even for novice users.
The price starts at $6.99 for one month and users that enjoy the experience may opt to pay a one-time fee of $149.99 for a lifetime license.
