Best Privacy Focused Browser?

VPNs provide a great layer of anonymity and security. However, you also need a good internet browser that stops ad tracking, scripts, and doesn’t collect your data. Brave is a free open sourced designed browser that was designed with privacy and security in mind. It has cloud integration, a great mission, and if you download it and use it for 30 days, you can help the channel and support me without paying a dime!

Explaining the tiers in the Tom Spark VPN tier list

Tier 1: These VPNs simply excel in every single category. They have the best speeds, the best customer support, are super  cheap, have a great reputation, and have very little flaws. These VPNs can suit anyone’s needs almost perfectly.

Tier 2: These VPNs are excellent VPNs in their own right, being usable for most people. These are very usable VPNs. However most tier 2 VPNs have a few hiccups in some categories. Some are too expensive, and some have lacking customer support, or some don’t have the best track record.

Tier 3: These VPNs are VPNs that are either drastically over priced, have done some questionable things in the past, have slow speeds, questionable marketing methods, bad support, or all of the above. Don’t use these VPNs! I don’t even bother to use affiliate links for anything at or below this tier, because I don’t want any of their money!!!!

Tier 4: These VPNs are VPNs that have gone above and beyond what is expected from a VPN, but in the worst way possible! These VPNs could be dangerous for your security, push you into long commitment models you can’t get out of, advertise falsely, or just not provide anything worth using. In fact, from using some of these VPNs, my personal information as seemingly leaked onto the internet! I would rather not use a VPN than use a Tier 4 VPN.

What makes you credible to make a tier list? Why trust Tom Spark’s VPN tier list?

I have been reviewing VPNs since 2015. I have always been interested in computers, networking technology, gadgets, and software. I am by no means as knowledgeable in internet technology as a high-level network system admin, but I think my expertise lies in identifying good consumer practices. And since I have tested over 100 VPNs, I have a broad source of knowledge that is perfect for educating both experienced VPN users and new VPN users alike.

I know what it’s like to be confused about VPN, but I also know what it’s like to take advantage of advanced VPN features like VPN routers, extra VPN settings like port fowarding, dedicated IPs, Stealth VPN, and more.

I also try to make my content fun and interesting as well as educational. I think my integrity has also given me the ability to stand out in the VPN review industry, since so many have lost theirs. I am often recognized as the  “honest voice” of the VPN industry.

How do you make money from the VPN tier list?

Since I don’t take sponsorship deals, I make my money from affiliation. This means every time you click a link, and buy a service, I get a small cutback. This is pretty common in the online industry, but most websites receive both sponsorship AND affiliation. Since I only do affiliation, you can trust that all of my reviews are honest unbiased fact based content.
