  1. Tom I have seen more and more web sites saying if you are on a VPN, you don’t get access. I have always just deleted them-not interested. But it is starting to interfere with my access to things I want. Do you have any advice?

    1. This can be a problem with more popular VPN providers. Sometimes you can use VPNs like TorGuard to buy a “dedicated IP” add-on which is not recognized as a VPN IP, so website won’t block it. Hope that helps!

      1. Hi Tom,
        When one of their streaming bundles are purchased, Torguard includes 2 dedicated IPs. Are these residential IPs?
        Thank you

  2. hi tom john from australia my current test 5up 4down with present vpn time to change ?can i check up down speeds before purchase torgaurd

      1. Tom I was hoping you could give some assistance/advice on a slight issue with wevpn that I’m experiencing. Bought the 1yr package via your link today, Installed it on Firestick 4k, Nvidia Shield TV 2019, Windows 10 Pro 64bit Pc and realme X2 pro android phone.
        Vpn working on pc & mobile phone allowing for example geo unlocking Xumo TV, Plex, BBC iPlayer etc. But with same apps on Nvidia Shield TV & Firestick 4k Wevpn cuts off internet access on both devices when I go into device settings both have connection. The kicker is it actually freezes Firestick 4k. whereby device restart and Vpn cache & data clearance & Vpn disconnection is the only way to return to normal device operations must add Vpn is on default settings though.
        I’m based in the UK, did contact customer support, must say they were brilliant & quick on response. Obviously have to give up to 72hrs to see if they can resolve it which I don’t mind it’s blazing fast on pc & mobile.
        Have you come across this scenario before? I do believe it’s a small bug.

    1. They have one for Android, and otherwise you can access within your browser I think. I haven’t been keeping up with it as much.

  3. Tested a few and ultimately settled for MailBox.org. When I first began using MailBox.org there were initially issues synching with Google calendar but all was resolved within a respectable delay.
    After a year of using their paid plan, I was satisfied with their service and I recently renewed for another year.
    The pricing is extremely competitive (lowest out there) and an App is also available for mobile devices.

  4. I was excited to sign up for Mailbox.org today and went to their website, but was greeted with this message: “Due to maintenance work, the registration of new accounts at mailbox.org is blocked for a few days. Please check back in a few days.” I’m not sure how to feel about this when it comes to trusting a company who stops operating certain features because of Maintenance work, I’ve never seen that done with any email carrier. Will this happen in the future that I won’t be able to access my email account (or photos, calendar, etc), because of maintenance? Why would they disable registration at all? Have you seen this before? Is it justifiable? Thanks!

  5. I think you should review criptext.com email also. Best secure email services provider and it is free. No cloud emails and no cloud backups. Everything encrypted and stays on your PC.

  6. Hello Tom,

    First off … Thank you for the unbiased reviews on VPN’s and love the YouTube vids. I took your advice and went with TorGuard ( streaming bundle ) for a month recently to get my feet wet with using VPN’s. I have a question hoping you can answer as TorGuard has not responded. I don’t have but a couple devices that I could use TorGuard on and it says I can use it on 8 connections /devices simultaneously. Is it ok to share my login credentials with a trusted family member or what do you suggest ?

    Respectfully,
    Don

    1. Hello I have not encountered these issues but I have also not tested WeVPN much on firestick. Did you ask for help in their discord server?

  8. Thanks so much for covering PrivateMail on your channel. What are the implication if I add a Gmail account to my new PrivateMail, regarding internet privacy concerns . Could my new accounts be associated with the Google account that I added to PrivateMail with regards to profiling and tracking.

  9. Tom, do you do consults for 40 somethings that aren’t all that tech savvy? We live in the states and Mexico part time and need advice on what to purchase. Many thanks, Cori

  10. About private email. The devil is in the details & i can only suppose the review makers can’t afford experimenting all companies hands on. For the moment here is my dead obvious observation between Tutanota & Mailbox. Tutanota is more expensive but does not recycle abandoned emails vs Mailbox which will re-circulate any unpaid membership after 4 months, so according to your need for privacy you better be ready to pay for life & beyond. But the Mailbox basic package does have way cooler options like cloud storage, video call, web chat…

    Thanks

    1. To be fair i will clarify that Mailbox gives 4months of non-disclosure per year of inscription. For example a 10 year membership will have 10years x 4 months = 3.33 years before reselling your e-mail.

  11. Hi,
    I would not suggest Tutanota to be in tier1 because it has a lot of issues that prevent it from being used as a primaty email:
    1. Stability issues.
    2. Absense of offline mode.
    3. Tendency to block the accounts all of a sudden on the grounds of “suspicuous activity” https://www.reddit.com/r/tutanota/comments/kvbsa6/i_was_testing_it_by_sending_emails_to_myself/
    4. I personally was not able to even start working with it because by account was blocked and put into an “approval” process without any apparent ability to actually do that.

  13. Hey Tom,
    I was wondering if you know of any reliable email services that support custom email domains?
    I was asking because I see that Proton Mail has an option for it but it is ranked lower on the Tier List. I also didn’t see Private Mail or any other email service have it.
    Should I go for it or not?

    1. I think it could be coming soon, but still privatemail is my go-to main use email service even without something like custom domains.
