Avira Phantom VPN Pro


To securely upload files to Microsoft OneDrive, we log into Avira Phantom VPN Pro – our preferred VPN solution.

We have been using Avira products and services since 2012 and thoroughly recommend them. Avira is a German multinational security software company mainly known for its antivirus software Avira Internet Security. And while it is best known for its antivirus product, Avira launched a virtual private network solution in 2017 and has been enhancing its features and capability ever since. It is now available for the four main operating systems: Android, iOS, macOS and Windows in both a Free and Pro version.

To get technical, neither traffic nor IP addresses are logged on their VPN service, however, bandwidth is logged. And being a German company, they are bound by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

As a critical application, it is one of the few we recommend you pay for – whichever solution you go with.
