One thing you also need to consider in a VPN is the speed of connection. There are some VPN's that it would take a while before you can connect or the speed is too slow. Other thing, consider the number of server and how secure your connection is.
At this moment, I am using ZenVPN. You can try it for free so that you may assess if the service for you is worth your time. So far, they have lowest monthly rate w/ 5gb of daily service usage and you can change the location anytime you may prefer.
Here is some things to consider:
- Why do you need a VPN and how many servers you need?
- Where should the servers be located?
- Do you need servers that suports P2P?
- Which is the encryption needed?
- Does the VPN provides VPN clients for easy setup?
Most of the questions you have to ask yourself are related to the use of the VPN.
My recomandation is ibVPN. I'm with them for over 6 months and any question you have, theri support will help you in minutes.
Nowadays there are many reliable VPN provider in industry so in order to find the best one, go online and check out the reviews for different VPN services. Make a comparison of the features, costs, security, speed, bandwidth, server location and connectivity protocol. By doing your research beforehand, you can narrow down your options to two or three VPN service providers before making a final decision.
I personally subscribed to purevpn as it helped me to bypass the restriction when I was in China through the following dedicated software but I'm sure you can find many reliable providers by checking those reviews:

There are a number of options if you are trying to protect your in formation, here are a few suggestions that will help you out however, you have to realize that if somone wants the information bad enough they might just get it. So always be weary of what you are doing on the net. In order to establish a basic VPN you can use a basic proxy service like Cyberghost which will charge you a monthly fee to use their services for what is called tunneling all trafic is encrypted via their Proxy servers around the world. Im sure there are other services that do the same, you just have to do the research. Also there is a free app called peerblock that will block some of the data colleced from your IP. You can use Youtube to check videos on how to set it up and download it. Of course the services I described above are for home use only, Im assuming that is what you are trying to do. Once connected to a proxy server with a different IP dont sign in to your google account or any profiles that might expose your identity and you should be fine, hope this helps!
