What is our favorite VPN?
We recommend Nord VPN to anyone that finds themselves needing one. We have used it for about 7 years and it has been reliable. They have a support staff and the support staff returns emails.
One of the best features of Nord VPN is that you can get your own private IP address. Why would you want this? Have you ever noticed that when you try to use a VPN and access sites like Google it makes you do captcha after captcha? Most of the ip addresses given out for VPNs are blacklisted or known bad neighbors.
When you get your own private IP address you don't have to worry about what someone else might do to ruin the reputation of your ip. You will have no trouble streaming or accessing websites. You should be able to get through to sites like Ticketmaster and Netflix.
I did a speed test and I was able to get 70 mb/s up and down going through the VPN which is fast enough for 4K. My ping was really slow at about 500ms compared to my 2ms that I get at home without a VPN.
If you are using a software wallet, you definitely should consider protecting yourself. If you use random wifi, you should consider protecting your computer.
