SecureLine VPN from Avast Software provides an encrypted connection over a private network, plus 19 exit regions for sidestepping georestrictions.
Cost: Avast gives you two weeks to try SecureLine VPN for free before you must subscribe, whereas other VPN vendors offer a free version with a monthly data cap. However, Avast's subscription rates -- $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year -- are much lower than those of many other popular VPNs.
Locations: If you want to access websites and content in locations other than your own, Avast offers exit points in 19 regions: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States. Some regions have multiple exit points.
Speed: In informal tests of ping and throughput on Wi-Fi and cellular networks, we found SecureLine VPN had a small drag on network quality but media still streamed without a glitch.
Security: To create an encoded and private connection, SecureLine adopts industry-standard AES-256 for data encryption and uses OpenVPN to create a private network.
Personal data: Avast says it does not share information with third parties, captures only network performance, and deletes logs within 30 days.
Limited free version: If you're looking for a free VPN, Avast will only float you for two weeks.
Subscription applies to a single platform: You can include five Android devices in a subscription but can't add devices from other platforms.
SecureLine VPN comes from a respected security company and offers a broad collection of exit servers at an affordable price.
