Windows 10 may be the world’s most popular operating system for laptops and desktops, but not every provider builds a VPN service to work with it.

For instance, NordVPN recommends that you use its application for connecting to their servers via a Windows PC. NordVPN designed features, such as Double VPN, Onion servers and automated kill switch technology for Windows specifically (but they may apply to other operating systems, too). You can get NordVPN starting at $2.99 per month if you sign up for three years—billed at a total of $107.55. (Here is the Windows 10 tutorial if you need it after signing up.)

leverages the OpenVPN protocol for its Windows app. It has a specific step-by-step process for Windows 10 users. Regular pricing is only $3.33 per month (paid annually). Not to be beaten by competitors, it has a 31-day satisfaction guarantee.


While ExpressVPN does not specifically state that it uses OpenVPN, it does provide a Windows 10 (and 8, 7, XP, and Vista, as well) app that will take you through the process once you sign up for their VPN for Windows service. ExpressVPN is one of my favorite VPN services. It has a no-logs policy (essential in my view), and the service is $99.95 per year (paid annually). It also offers a kill switch that terminates your connection if a breach occurs. You can read more about about the kill switch in the Benefits of a VPN post.
