asgs9400287dProton VPN free is good enough for me
ImNotAlfred382287dI have a wireguard tunnel setup, works pretty well.
linuxxx153436287d@beleg Thank you and that's very true!
While ProtonVPN (@asgs) isn't the worst out there definitely, they have used Google's captcha (not sure if still) and required your phone number at registration till recently.
For a privacy-serious company, those things are absolute no-go's.
I'd recommend MullVad all the way. Affordable, transparent, FOSS clients and you can even send cash through postal as payment! Also, they give you an account number and that's literally everything they require by default.
molaram3758286dYou can also set up your own on some $3-$5 vps on dO or linode, they have ready made images or scripts
rasukto15286d@halfflat it's classmates so i never really asked for their devrant name, they just recommended the app (sorry)
@linuxxx thank you
@SortOfTested yes i trust randoms more because my friends don't really think much about privacy etc. Also why avoid nord and tunnelbear?
@molaram I don't know if i feel up to that :D I just wanted something simple and secure.
Nord didn't disclose a hack
Tunnelbear sold to mcafee, which raises privacy concerns. A small vpn company lives and dies by its security alone, McAfee is more likely to log your activity and keep your data. Re: Tunnelbear, it is unlikely that the American govt can compel a Canadian company to disclose data they do log. McAfee will flip on you bc it's Tuesday.
