    Vpn spotflux


    I'm new to using vpn. I therefore have a general and a specific question.

    1. When I'm using any vpn am I not just trusting the vpn? That is doesn’t a vpn just use a proxy through which everything now goes?

    2. Is Spotflux vpn a good vpn to go with?

    Thanks.

    Yes, that is why it's important to pick a good VPN.

    No it is not.


    Are you looking at using a VPN for general security like at wifi hotspots?

    Some very good VPN's: ivpn.net, Mullvad, bolehvpn, airvpn.

    If you're just looking for some privacy then you could use the Tor Bundle. Just be sure to use it in it's default state and do not run any plugin's.

    Not free, but very trustworthy with no slow-down effect on your system.

    I was warned that the Avast av actually spies on you when you use their av. So I am not sure they would good as a vpn?

    I don't know.
    I never heard anything about it.

    Could you supply a link to the source of that statement ?

    OK.
    I read the article.

    If I understood it correctly, they were using the free version with browser extensions enabled.
    & Chrome.

    I use the paid version & Opera with no extensions available from Avast.

    I'll contact Avast & see what they say.

    I hope it's not spying on me.

    edit--- I contacted Avast support. Waiting for a reply.
