I have written before about the FREE ProtonVPN. See https://duckduckgo.com/?q=site%3Aprivacyblog.com+ProtonVPN for a list of my past articles. I consider it to be a great FREE VPN, one of the very few free VPNs I would trust.
HOWEVER, a hacker has now created a look-alike product that actually is malware (malevolent software) that, once installed in a computer, steals every user name and password for every site the computer visits. Even worse, the hacker calls this piece of malware ProtonVPN.
You can read more about this fake version of the popular VPN client in an article by Paul Wagenseil in the Tom’s Guide web site at: https://www.tomsguide.com/uk/news/fake-protonvpn-malware.
The real ProtonVPN is available at https://protonvpn.com/.
