Recommend a VPN for Android?

By indigofurr ·
I'm looking for a VPN service for my Android since I'm on public wi-fi a lot and want to buff up my protection. Right now I'm considering Surfshark because it uses IKEv2 protocol and it's stated that it drains less of your phone battery. I searched but couldn't really find other VPNs that offer IKEv2 for Androids, maybe you have some recommendations so I can do a comparison?

Recommend a VPN for Android?

I recommend VPN service VeePN. It is a good VPN with good speed and the ability to connect up to 10 devices from IOS to Linux, Android. Probably the best VPN.

I've been using NordVPN for more than a year now. Works like a champ on my Samsung S8.

There's no place like home.

There are a few VPN clients for Android including the built-in VPN client. (Settings/Network&Internet/Advanced/VPN). Why not set up a VPN server to your own home and connect to there. You already know and trust your own home network. You may have VPN capabilities built into your router at home or at least VPN passthrough. There are tons of guides setting up a VPN server on something a simple as a Raspberry Pi. With a setup like this, you have full control of both ends of the VPN and there would be no ongoing costs.

Thank you

Thank you, I haven't thought of setting up my own VPN and you're absolutely right there's no other network I trust more than my own. I will research the manuals on how to do that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this way I wouldn't be able to mask my IP address? If I'm using Surfshark I can switch between their servers and this way I would only have my home IP address?

You are correct

Using home for a VPN would end up looking like you were surfing from home so it would use your home IP.

Thinking the same

I was thinking exactly the same.

After checking a lot of VPN services, I'm also gearing towards making my own home VPN server.

I've heard there ara some good options for mounting it, like OpenVPN and AlgoVPN.
Check them out, and be sure your router has the needed capabilites.

I personally recommend you Windscribe as this is one of the best VPN service providers. This can be used into Andriod as well as in windows for your computing systems.

NordVPN, TouchVPN, CyberGhost, Turbo VPN. I used all. Of course, everyone is good and they do not differ too much among themselves, but I would recommend CyberGhost or Nord.
