How many of you want to build a VPN ? Do think it is better than using 3rd party VPNs ?
How easy is to build one ? VPN = Virtual Private Network
It is easy to do with options like Open VPN. When say easy, it is not through a few clicks. It is a bit tricky if you are beginner. But it is not impossible. If you refer a few guides, take assistance from forums, you could actually be using a very safe VPN.
Building a VPN from source is relatively easy to do, but you should never try to create your own encryption algorithm unless your are a cryptographic expert - it'll be cracked in minutes otherwise. Leverage open technologies such as OpenVPN which is well documented and supported.

Welcome to the forum
Have you tried building one ? Was it using Open VPN ?
Abhi Yes. It's not difficult, but needs patience. It really depends on what you are looking to do.
Any other good options other than Open VPN ? I saw a couple of them when I tried Google. Not sure if they exist anymore.
admin Are you looking to create a site-to-site VPN, or simply secure your web traffic ?
phenomlab simply secure your web traffic ?
This one. I do not trust 3rd party VPNs much
admin My recommendation is NordVPN in this instance. They are probably the only provider who actually have independent audit attestation that they do not log your traffic. I use it all the time (I'm a privacy advocate) on my mobile, PC etc.. I have a three year deal and haven't regretted it.
Looks like they have an app for Android TV as well.
Abhi Yes. They also have a setting that shields from Malware and Ransomware 🙂
