Synology router and/or nas on permanent vpn (split vpn)?

janhoedt asked

I m thinking of setting up a permanent vpn for my Synology router (mr 2200 ac and/or Synology nas ds918+).

The idea is that this adds extra protection, maybe also speed (I know in general speed hoes down but maybe by using compression techniques?) and anonymity (add blocking/spyware blocking offered by vpn providers, also tracking my Internet usage by companies will be harder).

Also, that way I could put my home network wherever I want in the world.
Disadvantage might be that I get search results for that country I set my vpn to.
Advantage: I could switch Netflix to another country :-)

Note: have already Pihole and safe browsing enabled (Synology router).

I do would need split tunneling then since I d need to be able to vpn to my synologies vpn server. Also I guess I better take a vpn connection to a nearby country for low latency.

For the vpn I d take a lifetime subscription on f.e. fastestvpn or vpn unlimited.

Lots of open questions. Anyways, appreciate your input!

A lack of information provides a lack of a decent solution.
The only thing I can say is I also use a VPN solution, I've done some investigation and the best one I could find from both an anonymity and speed perspective was express VPN. I think it's like $99 a year and they don't throttle you at all, I max out my 300Mb line daily. I'd stay away from NordVPN due to the fact they got hacked in the first place, not great for a VPN company.
