6 Best VPNs for Multiple Device Connections

Nowadays, it isn’t uncommon to own and use more than one device that’s connected to the internet. When you are at home, the chances are, you’re browsing the web or watching something on your laptop or tablet, whilst checking your phone for new messages or tweets, from time to time. Either way, the conclusion is that all of your devices are connected to the internet, and are therefore constantly transmitting inbound and outbound data, which lets your ISP or mobile data provider know exactly what you, or rather your devices are doing online.

In another scenario, you may already be using a VPN on one of your devices, but your family members or anyone else in your household can’t utilise the same VPN account because your provider only allows a maximum of one connection at any given time. Moreover, it’s often difficult to identify exactly how many multiple connections a provider permits, as this information is often buried in their FAQ and knowledgebase sections. This is why we’ve decided to put together a top 6 list of VPN services that allow the most simultaneous devices connections under one subscription plan.

As of May 2015, NordVPN offer six simultaneous connections per account, which places them in the top spot. NordVPN is an offshoot of Panama-based Tefinkom S.A., a web hosting and net solutions specialist. The provider is among the more well-known VPN companies and has developed a reputation for its strong SSL-based 2048-bit encryption. Allowing six simultaneous connections, however, marks them out from the rest, a feature that is incredibly attractive to large households and families. NordVPN runs customized apps for iPhone, iPad and Android.

Also allowing five device connections at one time is Private Internet Access. Although they are technically in third place, many aspects of their service and privacy and performance-oriented company ethics would actually put them in joint top position. In fact, PIA were one of the first big-name providers to offer this many simultaneous subscriber connections. The service also provides custom apps for Windows, Mac and Android (iOS devices can be manually configured) and their package pricing is consistently cheap.

They are also the first provider we’ve reviewed to launch an encrypted server in Iran – something that no other international company has managed before.
