I use ProtonVPN. I use it because I like my privacy. I don't like the idea of my ISP being able to monitor all my traffic. It's also inherently more secure to use the Internet through a VPN.

Nope, I don't see a reason to use VPNs.

Thank You Badge
Our new computer comes with McAfee’s. I tried it a few times but it prevented me from accessing many sites & forums, including my own. If anybody knows of how to fix that, I would love to utilize their safety features.

One I had looked into before was NordVPN. Since I use DuckDuckGo search engine, I learned of their TunnelBear. As that page says: "Recommended by a duck, protected by a bear!"

It’s annoying though that we DO have to continually use things like this in order to be safe on the internet. I guess I think of it just like any other insurance. Pain to have, but definitely needed.

Maybe because it does not like free websites ( which are usually related to scams)

There is another side to it. VPNs were accused of tracking our activity.

Do you know that we can build our own VPN? It is very easy too. ;)

A lot of sites in my country are banned, therefore, I use VPN. Sometimes I also use VPN to access the sites that do not offer services in my location. However, I use a free VPN.
