I found another interesting VPN article I thought I would share.
Be cautious, free VPNs are selling your data to 3rd partieshttps://thenextweb.com/contributors/201
First off, considering the importance of a VPN or a secure Email service, I believe it is foolish in almost any case to look for free unless you simply cannot afford even a few $ a month. I have a saying, With free, you usually get what you pay for.
I went to that article which linked to the actual source article that was being quoted https://thenextweb.com/security/2018/03/27/26-popular-115-vpns-keeping-tabs-saying-theyre-not/
There is also this link is to listhttps://thebestvpn.com/118-vpns-logging-policy/
It says it was: Last updated: March 22, 2018. Interesting because the article referenced by thenextweb is to 115 and the actual thebestvpn article is about 118. Hmmmm....
On the list of 26, and relative to this thread, was 5. VyprVPN
. You can read their full review here https://thebestvpn.com/reviews/vyprvpn/
This link has a ton of summaries and rates both the 26 vpns that log and then 26 that don't log and finally, 63 that keep what they call "no important log files.
Now here is what gets my hackles up about thebestvpn site. They have VyprVpn as #5 on the list of 26 loggers. But if I click from the list of other articles on the left side of the page, the top link is to Best VPNs (TOP)
. It takes one to an article dated Feb.26, 2018, less than one month before the log list. Here are their top five pics from their list of the 35 most popular VPNs:
1. ExpressVPN: The Best “All Round” VPN ($6.67/mo) (This was one that had appealed to me in this thread,)
2. NordVPN: A Legitimate VPN Software ($2.75/mo)
3. CyberGhost VPN: An Affordable (Quality) VPN ($3.50/mo)
4. VyprVPN: One of the Most Powerful Budget-Friendly VPNs ($5.00/mo)
While there is a ton of info on thebestvpn site, the fact that they both have Vypr both on the logs kept list and their recommended list seems somewhat contradictory and makes me wonder how much one should trust the site. But their review is also great for Express. *Sigh*
So here i am again in conflict land because i cannot answer the questions nor do i know who can do so with reasonable accuracy. Which is safe who isn't, who to trust......
