https://www.liquidvpn.com/vpns-guide-absolute-beginners/

This guide is well-written for beginners who don't know anything about VPN, why use one, how to use one.

This is from LiquidVPN website, which offers its VPN for a variety of devices and platforms.

It is not an endorsement of its services. It happens to offer a good VPN guide, that's all.

The site looks interesting. I was recently looking at VPNs based on a guide by a guide by thatoneprivacysite.net. His criteria was based on privacytoolsio.github.io which are as follows:
Quote:

All providers listed here are outside the US, use encryption, accept Bitcoin, support OpenVPN and have a no logging policy.

A quick skim of your link makes me think that you link will have similar guidance. privacytoolsio actually doesn't recommend any of the five eye countries due to security certificates and extradition agreements. My research tells me that you can get a very good VPN for $5.44 per month. One can find cheaper VPNs but I can't guarantee that these cheaper ones will meet someones needs.
