Although I am using a free VPN myself, but it is not doing me any good.... I totally agree with lots of experts here that it does not properly mask your activity nor provides any data encryption. A safe bet is to waste some money on some of best VPN services and take advantage of their service to the fullest.

Thanks for all the info I might go for the paid since it has more security offer, I'm thinking PureVPN.

Mod Note
I know the poster is trying to be helpful, but advertising is not allowed on the Forum.
One can mention the service but not post a link to it. ie I use xxxxx.
