Why Free VPNs are not a Risk Worth Taking

I have written often about the wisdom of always using a VPN to keep your online activities private. (See http://bit.ly/2fucq1F for my past VPN articles.) Now David Gewirtz has written an article telling why someimes you get what you pay for or, even worse, what you didn’t pay for.

Gewirtz writes, “TANSTAAFL. If you’ve read your Heinlein, you know it’s an acronym for ‘There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.'”

If you are thinking of adding a VPN or if you are presently using a so-called free VPN, you need to read David Gewirtz’s article in ZDNet at: http://zd.net/2xbzSsd.
