Best VPNs for staying anonymous in the UK: Stay hidden in 2020



NordVPN is one of easiest VPNs to set up across all of your devices. It works on a variety of platforms including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and more. It’s also one of the better-designed VPNs out there. 
Connecting to NordVPN’s various servers is easy — just click on the country you want to connect with on the map. We also like that NordVPN comes with a built-in ad blocker that also shields your device from malware and phishing.
NordVPN comes with a number of useful advanced features power users will appreciate. There’s a kill switch that lets your device access the internet only when it’s connected to a VPN, an app kill switch that can force quit apps you’ve pre-selected, and a Double VPN function that encrypts your traffic twice for extra protection.
It bears mentioning that in March 2018, NordVPN suffered a breach when an attacker exploited an insecure remote management system at a Finnish data centre from which the company was renting servers. Fortunately, this isolated attack affected just one NordVPN server, which reportedly had only 50 to 200 users, and didn’t compromise any user traffic logs.
NordVPN claimed to be unaware of this vulnerability in a statement, but conceded that it “should have done more to filter out unreliable server providers and ensure the security of our customers.” It has since terminated its contract with said data centre and taken active measures to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. It plans to launch an independent external audit of its entire infrastructure next year.
We still think NordVPN is a strong contender in the VPN space, because at the end of the day, this incident had very limited repercussions. Granted, the company should have alerted its users sooner than a year and a half after the whole thing went down — no question about it. But there’s no evidence that user data or activities were affected whatsoever.
If you want to give NordVPN’s service a try and see how the whole situation shakes out, you can do so risk-free for 30 days; you’ll get a full refund if you decide it’s not right for you.
