PureVPN is the best VPN software for one simple, yet powerful reason: choice. Most VPNs force you to tunnel your whole machine including all of its applications and processes through the VPN. PureVPN understands people want choice. There may be some applications you absolutely want to go through your VPN for security and privacy reasons. Alternatively there may be other applications you do not want to go through a VPN like if you have Sabnzbd, NZBget, Couchpotato, Nzbdrone or anything else you want to manage remotely outside your home network.
The PureVPN application for Windows allows you to choose which programs you want to go through the VPN like utorrent. This guide will show you how to install the PureVPN application, my other post shows you how to configure PureVPN for utorrent and other applications.
