Differnece Between Proxy And VPN

A proxy performs the transaction on behalf of the requestor. This generally means that the target does not have visibility of the original requestor but just the proxy.

A VPN creates a security tunnel between requestor and the target. In fact, to ensure non-repudiation and authentication, both parties must know each other.

And the Best VPN Ever is ExpressVPN i also share the Source How You Setup VPN on Windows is here

Best VPN

The top paid VPN services are trust worthy and you can access complete US content from anywhere in the world. The best VPNs are Express VPN, Pure VPN and PIA. I have been using it for torrenting, Netflix , Hulu ,Amazon Prime etc.
