What are your recommendations for the best VPN services and their pros/cons?

None. Don't ever use any commercial VPN service for any reason, ever. Especially if you have even the slightest bit of tech savvy. They are completely untrustworthy, and will sell you down the river at their own convenience every time. These services are one of the largest sources of malware, stolen account credentials, and credit cards on the internet.

Run your own IPSEC VPN on a $5 VPS instance using Streisand [https://github.com/StreisandEffect/streisand] or Algo [https://github.com/trailofbits/algo]. It takes 10 minutes of setup.

I used protonVPN during 2019 and it's been really good. I'll be renewing this next year for sure.

I run my own wireguard server. took me 1 hour to setup everything.
