About Us

Last edited: January 2, 2021

Time flies! Back in 2014 we launched our first VPN website. What started as a simple blog site with reviews of VPN providers, has now grown into a leading range of international VPN websites covering all aspects of online privacy, cyber security and internet freedom.

We believe it’s very important to write about these subjects, because the world around us is rapidly evolving. Today’s internet offers almost unlimited possibilities and opportunities, but at the same time it comes with risks. VPNs and cyber security are topics that many people believe are very technical and difficult. That’s why we try to explain these subjects in the most accessible and simple way possible, so that everyone will be able to understand.

What’s the idea behind topvpn.world?

At topvpn.world we cover everything that has to do with VPNs, online privacy, internet security and internet freedom. Below we’ll explain why we believe these topics are important.

Why we write about online privacy

Your privacy is a great asset, but has come under increasing pressure in recent years. There are many parties who could benefit from learning as much about you as possible. These can be advertisers, but also governments or hackers. In some cases you might be prepared to give up (part of) your privacy in exchange for ease of use; you’ve probably realized by now that Google follows you wherever you go, but at the same time Google Maps is so incredibly useful. Apparently we are all prepared to give up part of our privacy at times. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but we do need to find the right balance. By writing about online privacy, we hope topvpn.world will help make you aware of the data being collected about you. We also want to offer simple solutions and tips on how to better safeguard your privacy on the internet.

Why we write about internet security

Unfortunately there are some serious dangers lurking on the internet today. Every year, tens of millions of  people all across the world become the victim of cybercrime. Fortunately, there are many precautions you can take to ward yourself against cybercrime. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about identity fraud, ransomware, trojan horses, computer viruses, hackers and the latest ingenious online scams. That way, you’re well-prepared and will no longer be an easy target for the average cybercriminal.

Why we write about internet freedom and online censorship

Our editorial team is fortunate enough to be living in one of the most liberal countries in the world when it comes to internet freedom. Even so, we encounter censorship and online restrictions. When we travel, for example, our favorite streaming services might suddenly not be accessible anymore. Even our WhatsApp, Skype and Facebook could be blocked during a stay abroad. We even experience censorship within our own country. To give a few examples: certain YouTube videos aren’t freely available, we do not get access to the extensive American Netflix library, and special online discount deals are sometimes only valid for people in other countries.

We find it important to make people aware of the different forms of online censorship, their possible impact a democracy or society, and the solutions people use to circumvent internet censorship and online restrictions.

Why we write about VPN

The interesting thing about a VPN is that it will enhance your online experience in a very simple way. You install an app on your phone, computer or router, connect to a VPN server (which only takes one click) and five seconds later your internet traffic is secured and anonymized. Not to mention, you have access to more parts of the internet. A VPN is the central hub that helps you to obtain the three essential benefits stated above, namely online security, privacy, and freedom.

About us recommending VPN providers

Let’s clarify one thing right away: topvpn.world is not a VPN provider! This website serves as an independent source of comparison. We test the VPN services of dozens of different VPN providers on the market so you can get an idea of which service might be right for you. Our goal is to do this as transparently and objectively as possible. Therefore, we use a standard test protocol that we developed ourselves. Nevertheless, there will always be a subjective component involved in the testing and assessment of a provider. Based on extensive testing, we form an opinion on every VPN we test and incorporate this opinion in the assessment. In other words, every review will always involve a subjective component, namely the personal opinion of the reviewer. If you’re interested, you can read more about the way we test VPN providers on this page.

When looking for a VPN, you’ll want to find a VPN that’s reliable and fits your needs. That’s why we test the various VPNs we review so extensively. After a test, we communicate our findings to the VPN providers so they can gain insight into how to improve their service. We also take the user experiences of our site visitors into account, so don’t hesitate to drop a comment under our informative articles or reviews!

topvpn.world is an objective website containing information about dozens of VPN providers. If you, as a visitor, subscribe to a VPN provider through the links on our website, we might receive a commission from the VPN provider. This will never result in any extra costs for you as a user. Our service will always be free of charge for visitors of topvpn.world. We believe that’s how it should be. In many cases we even managed to get you a discount on your VPN subscription if you follow the links and buttons on our website. We’re committed to ensuring you always get the best deal with a provider if you want to try out a VPN.

We use VPN provider fees to cover the costs that come with the maintenance of our website. For example, they enable us to pay for copyright licenses so we can legally use photos and images on our website. This way, we ensure photographers and graphic designers receive a fair compensation for their work. We also use the income to cover recurring subscription costs for hosting topvpn.world.

Finally, a free internet acts transparently and with integrity. That’s why we only recommend VPN providers that we actually think are excellent. We test all VPNs ourselves. If a VPN provider fails in any way whatsoever, we will incorporate our findings in our reviews.

Commercial inquiries and advertisements

We at topvpn do not allow guest posts or advertisements on our website. We want to protect our objectivity and be able to guarantee that all articles on VPNoverview reflect our own opinions and findings. If we allowed commercial guest posts, we wouldn’t be able to ensure the quality we strive for. We would even risk losing our objectivity. Instead, we aim to stay true to ourselves. That means our website and its visitors will always come first.
