A VPN is something we definitely recommend using, not least as one way to help keep yourself safer online. There are lots of reasons why you might want to use one, but there's a fair bit of choice out there.

That's what we're talking about down in the Windows Central forums.

Mostly threats target windows users so when i search for internet freedom and internet security VPN comes in the list to must have, so I have been searching a VPN for my windows 10 machine. Please recommend me good VPN service and how should I set it up..
