Sandboxie is like a virtual machine for any program you run in it. I use it for my browser. That way anything I pick up while surfing the internetz wont affect the rest of my machine. http://www.sandboxie.com/

I have tried numerous VPNs and done quite a bit of research on the subject, and there is one VPN that consistently comes out on top--AirVPN (https://airvpn.org).

They were founded by "hacktavists" and privacy activists. They emphasize that they keep absolutely NO logs on their servers.

They accept Bitcoin.

They don't want to know ANYTHING about you. (Some VPNs want require your name, address, credit card, and more.)

Founded in 2010 by a group Italian ‘hacktivists,’ helped by a couple of sympathetic lawyers willing to work for free, AirVPN was a product of the Pirate Party festival in Rome, which says a lot for the fiercely pro-privacy, pro- data-protection, and pro- net-neutrality credentials of this small VPN provider. Offering a raft of features not commonly found elsewhere, such as complete transparency of service, acceptance of Bitcoin payments, VPN over Tor, and VPN through SHH and SSL tunnels, Air VPN impresses us with a dedication to maintaining users’ anonymity which is backed up with technological muscle to provide a simple yet elegantly effective core service.

Please read this Security Statement by AirVPN: https://airvpn.org/topic/891-important-notice-about-security...

And this regarding the U.S. seizure of web sites:


The United States of America authorities have been performing domain names seizures since the end of 2010. The seizures have been performed against perfectly legal web-sites and/or against web-sites outside US jurisdiction.

Administrators of some of those web-sites had been previously acquitted of any charge by courts in the European Union.

The domain name seizures affect the world wide web in its entirety since they are performed bypassing the original registrar and forcing VeriSign and Afilias (american companies which administer TLDs like .org, .net, .info and .com) to transfer the domain name to USA authorities property. No proper judicial overview is guaranteed during the seizure.

Given all of the above, we repute that these acts:

- are a violation of EU citizens fundamental rights, as enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights;
- are an attack against the Internet infrastructure and the cyberspace;
- are a strong hint which shows that decision capacities of USA Department of Justice and ICE are severely impaired;

and therefore from now on AirVPN does not recognize VeriSign, Afilias and/or ICANN authority over domain names. AirVPN refuses to resolve "seized" domain names to the IP address designated by USA authorities, allowing normal access to the original servers' websites / legitimate Ip addresses.

In order to fulfil the objective, we have put in place an experimental service which is already working fine. If you find anomalies, please let us know, the system will surely improve in time.

Kind regards
AirVPN admins

This is a pretty gutsy statement and tells of their dedication to the principles they assert to protect.

BTW, their tech and customer service is second to none!

Please read the ToS and Privacy Policy of any VPN

A good VPN is essential today if you cherish any online privacy. However, please read the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy of any VPN before signing up. The sad news--most DO keep logs and will give them up in a heartbeat, if pressured. Example: "Hidemyass" VPN.

There is one exception that I am aware of: AirVPN (https:airvpn.org).

I would not use a VPN that is based in the U.S.


Hardcore privacy policy. From the creators of The Pirate Bay and the server is in Sweden.

Doesn't this raise a concern at all?


Over 60% of Project TOR's fundings comes from the US government...

About TOR


They have also received funding from DARPA and The US Navy. Not saying there is anything wrong with that, but consider the source when using and don't believe those who say TOR is the end-all-be-all in web privacy :]

Does anybody here know anything about I2P?



That is quite worrisome.

Daily Paul blocks some of the VPNs

They block the free one called proXPN. And some of the VPNs use cloud computing...which is good for internet safety, but easy for the data miners.

Awesome list

Definitely going to check these out. Might be cool to see if this thread could become the ultimate list of alternatives.

I like SecurityKISS Tunnel for its simplicity.

Of course the free version is only 300mb a day.
