The Best VPNs for Samsung Phones (September 2021)
Today it’s more important than ever to keep your connection as private as you can. Not only when you’re using your laptop, but also when you are on your phone. Public Wi-Fi connections and browsing suspicious websites are the main causes of unwanted intrusions, data theft, and malicious software creeping into your phone. You can also be easily tracked and overloaded by advertisements. Unlike anti-malware, a VPN can mask your location and your browsing activities.
We use VPNs quite a bit and in this article, we will list the best VPNs for Samsung phones (and Android phones in general) that will keep your connection private.
The VPN that we use most often is ExpressVPN. Not only is it secure, trustworthy, and reliable, but it’s also available on Samsung phones. With over 3000 servers in 64 countries, it has a monumental worldwide presence and you can be sure that you’ll always have a stable and fast connection, wherever you are.
The Android version of the VPN is extremely flexible, as it even works with older Samsung models that are running the Jelly Bean versions of the operating system. It also functions smoothly on recent versions such as Android 10.
When it comes to features, this app offers all the traits of a reliable VPN. It hides your IP address, encrypts your browsing data, and doesn’t keep any logs – your privacy will be completely safe. You can also access any content from anywhere in the world.
You can download ExpressVPN from the Google Play Store, sign in, and activate the VPN service on your Samsung device.
ExpressVPN will let you use the service on five separate devices at one time for only $12.95/mo. You can also opt for a 7-day free trial to test out this VPN giant before you decide.
NordVPN is a virtual private network that is also well-known and reliable. It’s quick, reliable, and extremely large. Also, besides your Samsung phone (or any Android phone for that matter), it’s also compatible with Android TV. This means that you can stream some content that would otherwise be unavailable in your country directly to your Android TV.
The VPN offers encryption of the highest level and prevents any data leaks or unwanted intruders. With one tap, it will completely hide your IP address and connect you to one of its virtual servers around the world. You can pick a server (currently more than 5500) from any of the 60 available countries.
Besides hiding your IP, NordVPN will also keep your phone safe from malicious data – you’ll remain protected from spyware, malware, and other data theft. All of this with a stable and fast connection at all times.
NordVPN costs $11.95/mo. or you can get a great discount by signing up for one to two years at a time. You can start a 7-day free trial of the app right away, and the company offers a 30-day refund if you don’t like the features.
Surfshark is a new face on the VPN scene, but it’s already grabbed some positive attention. It’s cheap and reliable and its servers are getting better and faster as it expands.
The app uses strong and safe VPN protocols that will mask your IP address with ease. It will keep the ads and trackers away, as well as stop all spyware and phishing attempts. It also utilizes private DNS to ensure there are no data leaks.
Due to its cheap cost and no limits, this VPN is great for online streaming and hiding your IP while browsing sensitive content. The servers around the world enable you to access content without location restrictions.
You may also connect any number of devices to this VPN with the same subscription, so it’s definitely worth a shot.
IP Vanish is another low-cost, user-friendly, VPN that works great on Samsung phones. Available for download on the Google Play Store, IP Vanish offers access to over 1,400 servers worldwide. Similar to the other options on our list, IP Vanish is affordable, secure, and reliable. You can download the application directly from the Google Play Store to get started.
You can choose to pay $10.99/mo. or $44.99 for the first year for the service and protect all of your devices. IP Vanish will also give you your money back within 30 days if you aren’t satisfied.
