Subject description: a chart to help users find best VPN service providers

You will find a chart for email service providers as well.

You can download both charts as odt files, which you can view with LibreOffice Calc.

VPN service providers are a few providing best-in-class services.

One that is reviewed by author is BolehVPN, the chart showing mostly green sections, which is very good. Bad is being showed as red sections. Linux is supported. Free trial.

Note :
I looked for VPNbook, a free VPN client, but the service provider is not in the chart. By default, encryption is not as strong as other VPN service providers, but for browsing the web and accessing banking sites, it is better than no encryption at all (banking sites are already protected with HTTPS). Add to VPNbook Firejail and a hardened Linux distribution (AppArmor, SELinux), and you can feel secured browsing the Web.

Subject description: run installer for Linux
 

https://fra.privateinternetaccess.com/installer/download_installer_linux

If you feel more comfortable using a paid-for VPN, Private Internet Access is available for Linux platform for as low as $3.33/month

Download tar file, extract, and run installer :

./pia-v70-installer-linux.sh

Once the installation process completes you'll be asked to enter your login credentials. which you received in your e-mail.


To manage your VPN, PIA takes for granted you are using NetworkManager. You may have to make some adjustments, depending on which network manager you use (some don't have VPN support).
Or you may switch to NetworkManager. If so, you need to install basic package : network-manager. Add to the set network-manager-openvpn for VPN support.
More here : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkManager

An installing method is provided by PIA :

This is not an endorsement for PIA, but installation is made easy with installer for Linux, and it is a reputable company, not an unknown start-up.
