There is really no point using a VPN unless you’re sure that they don’t keep a record of your usage. If they don’t, then it should be safe for you to not use PeerBlock. In my case I use a VPN service that records my usage so I just don’t bother using it when I’m at home during p2p sessions. I just rely on PeerBlock only when I am at home because both my service provider and VPN service keep track of me. If you are not sure how private your VPN service is and you live in a strict country, you might be better of using both. Are sure your not over doing it with all of those lists?

TorrentFreak asked VPN providers if they log, here are the results:

Other than that... if you load everything you have on your motorcycle, you better expect a slug-gish drive, eh?

A VPN [assuming absolutely secure encryption] prevents anyone other than your ISP and the VPN operator from learning your IP address. If a VPN operator is compromised or is the target of a corporate takeover, or keeps logs and is subject to process or force majeure,,anonymity will be gone in an instant.
PB allows anyone to learn your IP address, but does prevent certain connections [so it may be trivially more difficult for some third parties to learn your IP address and/or for some servers to shove ads down your throat]..

The two functions are very different.

I want to use the internet anonymously and prevent websites from tracking me. Can someone tell me if a best vpn service is a solution and what company offers the best service? I heard from my friend about VPN service and if possible the company should be reliable with fast connectivity.

Of course you cannot trust every tom, dick and harry VPN service provider these days. Maybe it is because they are burdened down by law enforcement authorities, and partially because it is difficult to resist the urge of making free money off selling data. Select your VPN service provider with care and caution.
Take out the time and read some reviews for some of the top encrypted VPNs out there. [www.vpnranks.com]
Don't take VPN protection lightly! So you need to understand how VPNs work and what degree of respect they give you before you sign up.

VPN service [www.bestvpnfor.net] protects your privacy and security by encrypting traffic between your computer and European servers, changing your local IP addresses, doesn't host any data about its user's activities.

Not all of the providers keep yoiu secure and allow you to get unlimited access to your desired destination. I have been working in the it security firm and i advice you to choose only recommended VPNs to ensure your online anonymity and they also don't keep your logs but these services are few andthen you can use peerblock

I would recommend to view some VPN reviews if you can and select the best VPN according to your need.

You need to read through the privacy policy of each server to make sure they do not log IPs or personal information. I know cyberghost VPN does not log IPs or any personal information. Private Internet Access alsdo does not log any IPs either, but I think they log some personal information about account details and all. If a VPN is logging IPs, then it is pointless to use it, especially if you are planning to use it against goverment/anti-P2P companies.

If you are using vpn tool so you don't need anything else in fact this will be enough for you to access blocked content. Just use reliable tool so you don't need anything else...I am using vpn in china to access blocked sites here..

I agree with ^ this guy, but if you need a VPN you should try PureVPN. [www.purevpn.com]
