At AddictiveTips, our commitment to providing accurate and trustworthy information is paramount. We understand that people rely on reviews and guides like ours for valuable insights, that’s why we take this responsibility seriously.

Transparency is also a core value for us, meaning we source our information, tell you exactly how we tested any products, and disclose any affiliation we may have with the brands that we feature.

Editorial Process

For our extensive product round-ups like our VPN reviews, our dedicated research team tests the products through a standardized methodology and then gathers and analyzes the data needed to compare them fairly. This information is actively monitored and updated to ensure its accuracy. Our tech-writers then reference it to create timely articles that answer your questions.

Other tips and guides also go through an initial research phase by the individual author based on their expertise. Once the author is finished writing their article, the site editors add the final content tweaks and visual aids to help bring the articles to life.

Learn more on our full editorial process.

Review methodology

Our general review methodology involves a research and testing phase before any writing occurs. This is where our tech- writers first determine the major questions being asked about the product or service being reviewed, and then find ways to objectively test and answer those questions. This usually involves defining a subset of criteria that is being tested while defining exactly how that testing is taking place.

More specific review methodology is also established when we are testing multiple providers of the same or similar services, such as VPNs. See our VPN review methodologies page for exact details on that process.
