Co-founder and CCO of Safing here , I thought I’d pitch SPN for PrivacyGuides.
For Who Is SPN?

SPN Tech Overview
a Privacy Network aimed at threat models “between” VPN and Tor.
Uses onion encryption over multiple hops just like Tor.
Routes are chosen to cover most distance within the network to increase privacy.
Exits are chosen near the destination server. This automatically geo-unblocks in many cases.
Exclude apps and domains/entities from using SPN.
Change routing algorithm and focus per app.
Nodes are hosted by Safing (company behind Portmaster) and the community.
the SPN vs VPN comparison blogpost goes into more detail - especially the Part 2 - a technical comparison describes the tech more. If you already read that and want to know things beyond that - just let me know! If so, best ask specific questions so I know what to answer / where to guide you
