With the America’s National Security Agency, UK’s Government Communications Headquarters, India’s Central Monitoring System and China’s Great Firewall dedicated to spying on every individual (and individual activity) on cyber space, online privacy and anonymity is impossible without VPN encryption. However, not every VPN in the industry provides the kind of top notch encryption that is necessary to beat these cyber spying giants and their merciless spying activities.

Let me get one thing straight here: Encryption depends on the VPN protocol, not the VPN service provider. So you want a VPN service provider that offers as many encryption methods as possible. But deciding on an encrypted VPN is never easy because there are so many things that need to be considered. Considering the detailed reviews and evaluations I have carried out in the recent past, I came up with the following list of top 5 encrypted VPNs.

Private Internet Access

Private Internet Access has top-notch encryption with the best internet protocol availability. Subscribing to Private Internet Access gives you access to OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP/IPSec protocols. That way you can pick the protocol of your choice based on the encryption level you desire.

There is only one package that is available through three pricing plans, and all plans include access to all protocols. The 1, 6 and 12 month plans currently available on the Private Internet Access website and are affordably priced.

The 12 month pricing plan is the cheapest of them all, averaging in at $3.33, making it the cheapest VPN on the internet. The 6 month plan is available for $35.95 and the 1 month plan is available for a flat rate of $6.95.

All pricing plans come with the classic 360 degree compatibility that Private Internet Access is known for. Custom and user friendly apps are available for Windows and Mac OSX users. In addition, Private Internet Access can be configured manually on internet enabled devices for which custom apps are not available. Thankfully, all modern devices are being built to support VPN.

OverPlay

OverPlay is an aspiring VPN service provider with middle class service and service characteristics. OpenVPN offers OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP protocols to its users. According to the official website, OverPlay has servers located across 48 countries but not all 48 servers provide access to OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP protocols.

OverPlay is available for $9.95 per month and tends to target individuals looking to unblock region-restricted streaming services. Perhaps that is why OverPlay gives so much importance to its DNS service. You can purchase OverPlay’s DNS service for $4.95 if you don’t want to pay for the full encrypted VPN service – but I wouldn’t recommend doing that. Nothing beats an encrypted VPN.

OverPlay VPN strongest factor is the comatibility that it offers. OverPlay VPN is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS based iPhone and iPad, Android based devices and BoxeeBee. Having DNS allows OverPlay to offer services to use for AppleTV, PS3, XBox 360, Roku and multiple Router types.

PureVPN

PureVPN is one of the industry’s oldest VPN service providers. The veteran VPN service provider provides its users access to over 300 encrypted VPN servers located in over 26 countries.

With over 300+ servers spread out across 45 countries, PureVPN claims to offer PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP, OpenVPN and IKEv2 VPN protocols with up to 256-bit encryption and 5 multi logins allowed – all topped off with a 3 day money back guarantee.

PureVPN provides 1, 6 and 12 month plans for $6.95, $44.95 and $49.95 respectively. If you look at the 12 month plan, you will notice that this has to be one of the most affordable encrypted VPN packages available in the VPN industry right now. And that is not all, because PureVPN keeps coming up with discount offers quite frequently – even when there is no international event taking place. When I was writing this review, a visit to the PureVPN website’s ‘Order VPN’ webpage revealed a 10% discount on all packages.

IPVanish

IPVanish offers 8000+ IPs to its users through a network of over 136+ servers located across 59 countries. IPVanish offers OpenVPN, L2TP, and PPTP protocols for $10.00, $26.99, and $77.99 for 1, 3 and 12 months respectively. It is only the 1 month subscription that seems slightly above industry standard rates, but even that comes down thanks to discount offers that IPVanish frequently comes out with. And the 7 day money back guarantee isn’t so bad either.

Every package comes with IPVanish’s NAT Firewall cover, which I think is a great add-on, but not exactly what I would call a unique selling proposition.

IPVanish offers client VPN software for Windows, Android, iOS (minimum 7), Mac, and Mac OS X. Sorry but IPVanish has no client software for Linux support, but it does have some pretty neat Ubuntu support. A briefing of IPVanish and its characteristics cannot possibly be complete without mentioning that IPVanish offers not only Tutorials but also Visual Guides to help get encrypted VPN users on their way with setting up their IPVanish

OverPlay VPN strongest factor is the comatibility that it offers. OverPlay VPN is compatible
with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS based iPhone and iPad, Android based devices and BoxeeBee. Having DNS allows OverPlay to offer services to use for AppleTV, PS3, XBox 360, Roku and multiple Router types.
