Unfortunately I can't help on the free side. I've been thinking of just renting a server overseas and installing VPN software on that. Scaleway looks pretty cheap, €1.99/month for something with unlimited 100 Mbit bandwidth, twice that for unlimited 200 Mbit bandwidth - but I've never tried them before, so use at your own risk.

What I really want is VPN software that allows me to selectively decide what traffic goes through it. One of my kids plays multiplayer games, his game traffic would need to bypass the VPN for speed reasons. Most of us use Netflix streaming, there's no reason to funnel that through a VPN tunnel. As far as I know, nothing open source that provides all of this exists.

Probably not if you mean free as in money. TOR is free but slower.

I've heard nordvpn is good. I use private internet access. Protonvpn is free

I'm just using Nord. No complaints so far, but I'm kind of inexperienced.

It's well worth the money for the peace of mind, but of course the VPN has my credit card information so a gratis VPN would have some security benefits.

I mean they are still companies so they are shitty in that respect. I'm not sure about FOSS solutions here

I'd have to recommend just using Tor, rather than any VPN if you want something running on free.
