6 of the best VPNs for Chrome

ExpressVPN ticks many of the boxes that you need from a VPN, which is why it’s so highly regarded. Privacy wise, it’s based in the British Virgin Islands, so there’s no need to worry about data retention laws. It has maintained a great record for refusing to hand over information and —even better — it doesn’t actually store any data on its customers.
The Chrome extension takes seconds to install, although you do need to also install the full ExpressVPN app to use it. That’s a small price to pay for an extension that allows you to randomise the location reported by Google’s geo-location API, thereby stopping websites from acquiring your location. Like all VPN extensions, it works more as a proxy than a true VPN, but it does what’s needed to keep you secure. It also typically allows for the use of Netflix and other streaming services, all at a good speed.
With the standard VPN you get AES-256 encryption and features like split tunneling, which allows you to route some traffic through a VPN while the rest of it goes through your regular internet connection, thereby adding an extra level of security. Plus, there’s a kill-switch feature built into the app (rather than the extension) so all traffic is blocked if your connection unexpectedly drops.
There’s no free trial for ExpressVPN, but there is a 30-day money back guarantee if you’re not entirely happy. You can also use five devices simultaneously with unlimited bandwidth.
