While it may be tempting, using a free VPN has its downsides. Despite what they promise, most free VPNs also need to earn a living – by selling your data to third parties. Therefore using a free VPN could expose you to:
- Unwanted advertising
- Extremely slow browsing speeds
- Websites that may infect your device with malware
- VPN provider logging your online activity
- Data breaches or leaks
Unless you like living on the edge or taking risks just to save a few bucks, we suggest not using a free VPN.
