    The VPN thing is a double-edged sword… it is supposed to protect our privacy, hide our real IP… but all the traffic goes to “their server”. What do they do with all our information? We would like to think that nothing, but experience once again tells me: When the product is free, you are the product !!! draw your own conclusions.
