Best Buy VPN software
A Best Buy VPN needs to have many talents. It has to pass our tough security and privacy tests, be fast and easy to use and must also help you gain access to overseas content whenever you need.
A VPN has to meet a vast array of criteria to be awarded a Best Buy. We appoint an expert lab to run hundreds of tests to ensure that not only is your VPN useful and easy to operate, but also won’t leak your personal data or open you up to security risks.
- We sit through hours of downloads to check the average speed of every VPN to make sure you won’t be left twiddling your thumbs during your next big file transfer.
- We run through the sign-up process and make sure cancellation is easy so you don’t get bill shock come the end of your subscription.
- We evaluate VPN apps for all the biggest operating systems to ensure all your devices will be protected properly
How we uncover the best VPN
With over 900 individual data points recorded for every VPN we test, we take our opinion out of the equation and let the data do the talking so you can be sure you’re getting the absolute best VPN for your money.
- Privacy: One of the most important parts of a VPN is its ability to keep your personal data safe. Our tests check for leaks between the VPN and the open internet, and we also check whether the VPN app itself isn’t overstepping its mark and accessing too much of your data.
- Security: Our lab also includes a check for security flaws that could lead to your data being exposed to a hacker targeting your computer.
- Streaming: Our lab tests include checks on eight popular streaming services in various regions, including the US, the UK, Canada and France to ensure you’re able to access whatever you want to watch without being blocked.
- Ease of use: Our lab testers go through the full process of setting up all the available apps for each VPN service we test. This includes MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android. We make sure that the everyday experience of activating the VPN is as simple as it can be, but also that changing more advanced settings is also clear and easy.
