We like to think we know a little more about the best VPN services on the market here at Tom’s Guide, but we’re not afraid to admit that we could learn more too, especially when it comes to how our readers actually use them.
We independently test a wide range of services, from free VPN providers to the most secure VPNs. However, learning how real people use the software day in and day out allows us to understand what people really look for when choosing a VPN, which in turn will allow us to write more informative reviews and give better recommendations in our comprehensive guides.
This isn’t the first VPN survey we’ve undertaken, but this time we’re asking our readers what devices they use their VPNs on, what they use them for on those devices, and what’s most important when browsing. it’s about choosing a supplier.

We appreciate that online privacy is like gold dust these days, so if you choose to enter the Amazon Gift Card sweepstakes, we only need your email address, and we will only use it to deliver the prize if you win. You will not be subscribed to any mailing list and will never receive marketing emails. You can also choose to complete the survey completely anonymously and decline to participate in the draw.
Whether you choose to submit your email or not, we hope you will take the time to complete our survey. If you do, you’ll know you’ve helped Tom’s Guide deliver more informed content to our millions of readers.
Why is Tom’s Guide conducting a survey?
Even though we do rigorous testing on every VPN we review, we simply can’t use every provider all day, every day, like a long-term customer can. We therefore seek the opinions of real users who know the products better than anyone else for their honest opinions.
By sharing their findings, these users help us deliver better content to our readers by letting us know exactly what they want from their software, how they use it, and what they look for when purchase.
Finally, it’s worth noting that we’re doing this survey in conjunction with TechRadar, so don’t worry when you’re redirected to this site after you’ve completed the survey.
