5 Best VPN apps for safe and secure Android network browsing

Author at TechGenyz Contributor
VPN Apps

The convenience of the online world is that you can basically do anything online. You can shop, talk to people, play games and while you’re doing that you’re putting your privacy at great risk. What you should do next to narrow the consequences of this risk is to use a VPN. The Virtual Private Network offers you encrypted connections which will make it extremely difficult for anyone to gain entry without your permission. You can also use VPN to gain access to websites which have restricted access to certain locations. 

Most people today are browsing on their phones and one of the most popular smartphone operating systems is Android. You can find many websites ranking VPNs according to features so it could be tough to choose the top VPN for Android. The next question would be whether to use free VPNs or to pay for one? Some might argue that free VPNs might not actually provide the protection services they claim, but people still use them and seem satisfied with their services. 

To help you decide on which VPN app to use for your smartphone here’s a list of 5 best VPN apps for Android users:

Private Internet Access

The thing that makes Private Internet Access unique is that it’s easy to use and has a number of options you can set. The app offers forwarding support, UDP and TCP protocol setting and proxy support. You can also define remote and local ports, customize your handshaking and encryption methods and you have an auto-connection whenever you join a VPN together with a kill switch to turn it off. Although the app doesn’t have a free trial, its subscription is fairly affordable.

Express VPN

This is one of the many premium VPNs that prove why paying for a VPN service offers better protection. The app is user-friendly and has lots of advanced options such as an AES 256-bit encryption, an outstanding location picker and it operates at amazing speed. The app also features a spectrum of practical content and video guides on how to use the app coupled with 24/7 customer support. There’s a 7-day free trial available as well and the only downside of this wonderful app is that it has no kill switch.

IP Vanish

This is another Android VPN that boasts a 256-bit AES encryption and 24/7 customer support. In addition, this app has impressive download speeds and offers split tunneling and obfuscation. Like the previous entry on this list, this app also doesn’t have a kill switch.


This VPN is extremely well optimized and offers a number of protocols such as L2TP/ IPsec, PPT, OpenVPN and Chameleon. It also has a clear interface, auto-connect for untrusted networks, a kill switch, DNS options, as well as protocol switching and URL filtering making this an excellent VPN for Android users.


The most popular VPN on this list, NordVPN has over 5 million downloads and a high rating on Google Play. Some of the things that make this app stand out from the rest are its Double VPN technology that passes your connection through two separate VPN servers as an additional measure added for security.

The app has a “zero logs” policy which means that it doesn’t track the connectivity of the user. Whenever you join a Wi-Fi network the app enables you to connect to NordVPN automatically. In addition to those services, NordVPN has a live chat feature that is available 24/7 in case you need customer support. There’s a free 7-day trial available, but no kill switch.
