The Best Android VPN Apps Of 2018

The Best Android VPN Apps Of 2018
If you want to surf the web completely privately and securely, even when you're out and about connecting to public WiFi, a VPN is what you're looking for. Here we round-up the best VPN apps for Android.

You can also use a VPN (which stands for virtual private network) to access blocked content such as BBC iPlayer if you're outside of the UK, or the American version of Netflix. If you're looking to do so on your Android phone or tablet, you'll be pleased to hear that there are plenty of great VPN apps for Android.

Please note that it is against Netflix, BBC iPlayer and other blocked content's terms and conditions to access them using a VPN, so we advise you to do so at your own risk.

Android VPN App Reviews 

NordVPN
NordVPN is our current favourite VPN, offering an app for Android in addition to those for Mac, PC and iOS. Like the other services in this round-up, one subscription well let you use the application on all of those devices rather than limiting you to one.

The company tells us that it keeps no logs at all on its customers, so that combined with its competitive pricing and top security options makes this one of the most attractive offerings for internet users. It's easy to set up and suitably speedy too.

The cheapest plan is the 3-year plan, which is billed every three years and works out at around £2/US$2.75 per month. Get NordVPN here.

ExpressVPN
Another popular VPN option is ExpressVPN, which offers apps for all operating systems, including Android.

The app opens up the web to get around firewalls and censorship, and also provides protection from hackers and snoops who could be spying on you whilst you're connected to a public network.

You'll need to sign up for an ExpressVPN subscription of your choice, then download and install the Android app to your phone or tablet to begin browsing the web freely and safely.
Choose between a monthly subscription that'll cost you $12.95 (around £10), a 15-month subscription that will cost you $6.67 (around £4.90) per month or a 6-month subscription at $9.99 (around £7.50) per month. Each option has a 30-day money back guarantee. You can sign up here.

Goose VPN
GooseVPN is really easy to use. It's aimed at the home user rather than the serious privacy buff, with a cheap and cheerful £2.99 option available for light users.

Choose your country, and GooseVPN will help you find the most appropriate server. There are 77 server locations across 27 countries. We had no problems connecting to streaming services such as Netflix.

In addition to its Android app, GooseVPN is available for Windows, Mac, iOS, Linux, Android TV and even KODI boxes.

In addition to its £2.99/$4 offering, you can get GooseVPN unlimited for a year for £4.99/$6.60 per month. A monthly plan comes in at £12.99/$17.20.

Sign up for GooseVPN here.

TunnelBear VPN
TunnelBear is a good choice. It's simple and intuitive, offering the features you need without overburdening you with options and choices.

It's suited to family browsing, with quick connections and no trouble connecting to streaming services.

The downside is that you won't get a choice of server via TunnelBear and there are only 22 countries available. It's also based in Canada which may put off some serious privacy advocates.

There is a limited free version available, but you'll probably want to go for the monthly option which costs £7.35/$9.99, or the well-priced yearly option that'll cost you $59.88 for 12 months, which works out at £3.65/$4.99 per month. 

You can connect with five devices at once, and that includes your Android phone or tablet.


PureVPN
PureVPN is another of the best VPN options for Android.

It has a huge number of servers available across 141 countries, and logging is restricted to just the time at which connections are made to keep privacy at the forefront of its service.

There are lots of features and modes available in PureVPN to suit whatever priorities you may have, and it works well with Netflix, too.

PureVPN's Android app is smart, letting you choose the purpose of your VPN usage and tailoring the connection to match.

You'll need to sign up to one of PureVPN's subscription packages in order to use the Android app. You can pay as little as $1.95 per month (around £1.50) if you choose the three year package, or $11 (around £8.30) if you choose the monthly package. There's also a 7-day money-back guarantee.

IPVanish
IPVanish is available for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android, and with a 7-day guarantee you can try it out and see how much you like it.

Prices start at £4.90/$6.49 per month, but you'll only get access to servers in just over 60 countries. That said, you are very unlikely to need more than that, and this package is know to be speedy and very secure. Plus, you can have five simultaneous connections on multiple devices.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.
