Hi guys, looking for some advice on whats a good VPN to use in SA? I use my laptop to download, browse the internet and online shopping so just looking for some added 'security' since VPN's are the way to go?

Many thanks

I've used tunnelbear for years across my devices and it works well. Be aware no support for torrents though.

Slight bump and similar to the OP, are there any other recommendations out there for a good VPN?

What do you mean by no support for torrents?
Don't they make you anonymous if you use utorrent.

I am also starting to look for a cheapy vpn to use on downloads more than anything else

VPN companies get bombarded with DMCA-style copyright infringement notices due to users’ activities all the time. Some prefer to cooperate with copyright holders, to the point of handing over the names of infringing customers for further legal action, while others simply try to keep copyright holders happy by issuing warnings, and ultimately disconnecting repeat offenders.

Some providers, however, are happy to let customers P2P download, and make a good business out of protecting their identities (keeping no logs is always a good start here!) If your VPN provider allows P2P then you can download in safely.

Perhaps more than anyone, however, downloaders should be careful to use a VPN kill switch as they often leave torrents to download unattended for hours at time…
