I dare to ask, so which VPN providers are trustworthy? I switched to KeepVPN and its speed is slow plus some sites become inaccessible to me.
I don't think we can fully trust any VPN provider...Having said that I have used air vpn in the past.I mean even using Tor,the NSA is tracking every search query we make with there high speed servers

Mullvad would be my first choice, assuming you don't plan on using it for accessing foreign media libraries (Netflix, etc.). Their location, ownership and leadership are publicly available, the majority of their software is open source, and they've had their apps, infrastructure and DNS service audited by reputable third-parties. They're also developing a new security architecture that will lessen the need for users to blindly trust their architecture in favour of providing proof of its trustworthiness via cryptography.

TunnelBear or ProtonVPN would be my runners-up. Both have similar transparency chops to Mullvad.

I admit I trust Ekspress VPN. I have used it 2 years, and it's fast, and their customer care is good and fast.
Interesting. Unfortunately for me, it does not offer a Linux client. Although of course, there is always the proxy chain option.
