A lot of security suites offer the VPN in their bundle. This is helpful when you’re looking for a tool that does everything. These bundles can be extremely affordable and an excellent option to get two great tools for the cost of just one, but not all of them are equal. Some bundles are severely restricted, while others – like Surfshark Antivirus with its next-generation VPN is able to compete with many standalone products.
When you use an antivirus in conjunction with a VPN, your online traffic is routed through an encrypted tunnel, protecting your personal information from being viewed by the public. This keeps advertisers away from tracking your online activities. It also can help you bypass geographical restrictions that could prevent you from accessing certain sites or services.
In general, antivirus-bundled VPNs do not compete with top standalone ones, but a few of them – like TotalAV’s Safe Browsing VPN — are quite good. It’s not equipped with advanced security features, such as RAM-only servers, flawless forward secrecy, and an audited no-logs policy which top standalone VPNs offer, but it’s secure as well as fast and compatible with the most popular streaming apps and torrenting websites.
Other options that are worth considering include MacKeeper which is a malware scanner that scored highly in my tests and is also a reliable VPN that allows streaming on dedicated P2P servers. It’s easy to use, has good speed and has an policy of no logs that was independently verified by Deloitte. CyberGhost is a complete solution that has a kill button for unexpected interruptions in connection, split tunnelling, and 256-bit AES encrypted data, is a different option.
