Do you want to know the best VPN apps you can use on your Android and iOS? If you need to connect to the Internet in a secure and anonymous way, especially when you are away from home and use public Wi-Fi networks, a VPN connection may be the solution to your concerns.
VPN can get you access to content that is blocked in your country since this type of connection allows you to change the IP address from which your smartphone connects to the network. VPNs are top-rated, especially on computers, however, there are different applications designed for your Android smartphone to which you can also benefit from all the VPN features.
Once you install the VPN on your smartphone, you will start surfing safely, and you will be able to watch all the television series and movies from American Netflix (if you have a Netflix account) or even watch content that is only available in your country for when you are travelling or live outside your country. Now let’s delve right into it.

NordVPN is currently our favourite VPN for Android and iOS. In addition to being compatible with Mac and PC, it has an application available for Android and another application available for iOS.
If you subscribe to NordVPN, you can use your account on any of those devices, unlike other VPNs that are only compatible with a particular type of device, thus limiting its use.

It is also very easy to use and configure.

We finished the list of best VPN for Android and iOS with Tunnelbear, which in addition to paid subscriptions offers a free version, although limited but can be enough for less demanding users.

7. Windscribe VPN
Next, there is a free smartphone VPN application that has a high level of security, namely Windscribe VPN. With this application, users’ privacy will be protected. Users can access various sites and applications without speed limits as well.
Interestingly, Windscribe VPN does not provide a data limit per day, but an allotment of 10 GB for one month. Not only for Android and iOS devices, but the Windscribe VPN application can also be used on Windows, macOS, Linux, Fire TV, and Nvidia Shield.
One of the advantages of using the trusted VPN application Speedify is that the connection speed is faster than other applications. Moreover, this VPN is supported by turbocharging technology. But on the other hand, Speedify provides a data transfer limit for free users of 5GB per month.
ProtonVPN is claimed to be an excellent VPN application in terms of maintaining data privacy and all user activity. This application does prioritize privacy over speed. Users can download ProtonVPN on the App Store (iOS) and use it immediately without any access quota restrictions.

Thunder VPN is one of the trusted VPN applications that offers stable internet speeds, such as its tagline ‘As Fast As Lightning’. Supported by a relatively large number of servers, this VPN application will not suck up internet data, aka saving quota.
