    It depends upon what you want to use a VPN for. If it is for online financial transactions then any reputable VPN service will suffice. For privacy and anonymity that is an entirely different matter. You also have to consider server locations, the number of servers available, reliability, speed, server security, the installed client, features you might need like obsproxy, cost, mobile device options, etc.

    I am currently using IVPN on Windows PC. It's reliable, speed is good, and meets my basic online encryption needs. I don't use it for privacy\anonymity. It's a relatively expensive service though at $100 per year.

    For basic protections against MitM attacks at public wifi, FrootVPN is a cost-effective choice. For an occasional online bank login SecurityKISS free would suffice. If you don't want to go the free route, then JonDoNym using their annual 1.5 GB plan for $14 is a very good option for login to bank account and take a quick look, perhaps download a bank statement, and then logout. 1.5 GB should cover the entire year for that purpose.

    If you're hardcore about anonymity and privacy then a VPN alone isn't sufficient. It's a vast topic and requires extensive research of the multitude of options.

    I'm using NordVPN currently and I'm not hugely impressed. It's speed is poor and it has some serious problems keeping a stable connection. Sadly it's the only VPN I've used so far. I plan on switching once my subscription runs out in June but I'm not sure which provider yet. I've been eyeing PureVPN and KeepSolid for a while now.
    I also hear a lot about Windscribe here on MT so I may give that a look-see.

    Windscribe for me

    I am using Windscribe Pro, nice & clean GUI, connects/disconnects fast, all the servers work good for me, light on system, etc...

    ExpressVPN is the best VPN I've ever used and PIA is a very close second.
    Here is a detailed comparison chart to help you in making an informed decision.

    My original favourite was ZenMate for Chrome during it's initial release in 2013, in which I used for about 2 years. Posted, ZenMate for Google Chrome - Secure Browsing

    I currently do not use a VPN, although Opera Unlimited VPN remains as an open-option for Android.

    I have used IpVanish and Ekspress-Vpn for years,but my ipvanish subscription was up for renewal,and i felt for trying something else,so i purchased VyPr-VPN,and i must say i have not been disappointed,and then i have been trying Windscribe-VPN and SurfEasy-VPN for a month first,but now i will purchase them both,they are really good,because the also got browser extensions(Proxy,adblocker and script blocker).
    A thousand Thanks for all your answers:D;)

    I've used 3 or 4 different VPN services and my favourite out of them all isn't listed.
    I currently use Private Internet Access to keep me protected and anonymous.
    It has a windows, Android and iOS app and you can change your encryption settings as well as handshake.
    If you're interested to see, here's the options you have as well as all the available servers:

    First off, if you did your homework HMA does not belong and should be avoided like the plague, a minimal amount
    of "homework" and VPN understanding is required to see they should not be taken as a "Serious contender"
    Could not agree more with his statement.
    Research, and more than a little is required where VPN's are concerned, there is no magic shortcut.

    Unfortunately NordVPN does suffer from IPv6 leaks. Just be aware of that.

    NordVPN's speed is slower. It's not getting good reviews over at reddit(search the net) and thatoneprivacysite
