How Do We Do it?
We’ve provided millions of users in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and anywhere else in the world with comprehensive guides, step-by-step walkthroughs, unbiased reviews, and comparisons over the years. Our sole purpose is to help them make more tech-savvy decisions and solve their problems whatever they may be.
It doesn’t matter what the subject is, we run some tests before providing you with the information. We don’t just go around and spread random thoughts. Our reviewers go through some hard work to bring you the credibility we now have on our website.
You might have noticed that most of our guides include VPNs. That’s because we like to ensure complete online freedom and VPNs offer that. But what makes a VPN rank high on our page? Well, our analysts take into consideration every angle a VPN has and put it all together in an unbiased review. We’re talking about:
- Price: Whether the VPN is expensive or not. Is it worth the fee they’re asking for in terms of features?
- Features: If it offers the likes of a kill switch, Smart DNS, high-level security protocols, a wide server network, and the number of simultaneous connections.
- Compatibility: We check if their dedicated clients are available on all major operating systems, including iOS, PC, Mac, Android, and Fire Stick.
- Speed Tests: We do a lot of speed tests to each and every VPN provider in order to determine its connection quality.
- No-Log Policy: Our analysts dig deep to find out whether a particular VPN stores data on its users or not. We like to find out if they’re sincere when it comes to what they mention on their website.
- Warrant Canary: This is an important part that we always check in a VPN. If this section is not updated regularly, you must fear that this VPN has been compromised by the government. In other words, sued.
- Refund Policy: There has to be a way back if the VPN doesn’t meet your expectations. That’s why when we review a VPN, we keep a keen eye on their money-back policy. Some of them offer a 30-day refund guarantee, while others end up with 7 days only. Not to mention those who don’t have it, to begin with.
Not only that, but we also provide you with real-life quotes, screenshots, and facts that help ease your decision. Also, you can engage with us in the comment section to make the interaction more flexible.
We’re Still a Business
Whenever we mention a certain product, we usually provide a link to it. Some of these advertisers or companies allow us to earn a fee if the reader decides to sign up for their service. If it wasn’t for that, we wouldn’t be able to provide you with the reviews you have in your grasps at the moment.
However, it doesn’t matter what the relationship is with companies, we never allow it to tamper with our judgment and integrity. A product is a product, it has it’s pros and cons and we at theVPN.guru will criticize it. We wouldn’t recommend any product that we ourselves weren’t happy with. We worked so hard to earn our readers’ trust, we won’t throw that away just to make a few pennies.
