- Secure IP bind: This may be the most useful feature to go on any
VPNclient. While HMA! are not unique in having one, they still deliver an exceptional experience. This tool, also called a VPN kill switch, stops everything your Internet is doing if the VPNconnection drops – including your secured and anonymous downloads or uploads.
- Speed Guide: With such as vast network, you need help navigating it. With this you can group servers together and test to see which is fastest.
- IP address change: Hiding your IP address is one of the major features of a
VPN. Being able to change your IP address gives you even greater anonymity as your surf the Internet.
- Load balancing: The server you first connected to may get loaded up with other people, this will send you to a nearby server that has fewer people on it and is faster.
These four features, and many more, are part of what make The Hide My Ass! client the best around, and them one of the best

From their pricing to their client, IPVanish keeps things simple. From one window you can access everything you need by clicking through the tabs along the left hand side. None of this messy business clicking through other menus in a preferences tab anymore.
The Settings tab is where they REALLY flex their muscle. Within this tab you can select their useful features:
VPNprotocol you want the client to use
- Their own
- Timed IP address changes
- Auto reconnect if the server drops
- Auto start when the computer’s turned on, or when launched
You can literally set up IPVanish’s client so that you only have to turn your computer on and it does everything else for you …forever. It’s no wonder that they rank at the very top of our Top 10

They couple this with a number of features that need to be the standard for VPNs:
- Kill Switch: The same as the two above, killing your connection to protect your real IP address if the server drops.
- Load balancing: Switching you to a faster server when the one you choose becomes too full.
They also have two unique features to them which can be very useful:
- Private Networks: Gamers protecting themselves from DDoS attacks love how easily they can set up their own private network for their friends to join.
- Stateful failover: This switches you to another
VPNserver automatically when your connection drops, keeping you encrypted the whole time.
These two features can make Cyberghost your number one choice, especially if you’re a gamer who wants to easily create private networks to game on with your friends.

The team at VyprVPN are backed by the decades old Golden Frog Network. With all of their online experience they added one really interesting feature, looked at first, along with industry standards:
- Auto-Connect on Unknown WiFi: Perhaps one of the best reasons to use a
VPNis on public WiFi where Fake WAP attack are all too common. This feature connects your VPNright away so that you can’t forget and leave yourself vulnerable.
- Kill switch: If your
VPNprovider’s client doesn’t have a kill switch, you’re wasting your time.
- Fastest server: Why play around trying to figure out which server will be fastest for you when they already have this built in?
- Reconnect: Another automatic feature that helps lessen your time spent fiddling with their software.
One last feature from the client which we enjoy is one which lets you select your favorite servers. For whatever reason you like them, such as unlocking certain geo-blocked content, you can quickly find the servers you like.

While their advanced features are lower, they are the best ones:
- DNS leak protection
These two features will keep you private, exactly what Private Internet Access strive to do, in the easiest way possible. Besides this, they automatically choose the fastest server for you. The lack of information they give out on their servers could be frustrating for a know-it-all techy, but it gets the job done for everyone who just wants a
