They go into paid vs. free
Free refs - Hotspot Shield, CyberGhost VPN, and HideMan,
A few hours a week would cover cafe use, if that is the purpose.
Companies like Windscribe in Canada (a new company that made a splash) and VPN Unlimited seem to have specials along the usage of one year at $20 or lifetime at $40.
Some discussions (e.g. Reddit) have been fairly favorable.
Reddit has threads here for Windscribe (which may or may not be available now.)https://www.reddit.c...n_3120_does_not_log/https://www.reddit.c...n_unlimited_devices/
Could check Wilders and others too.
While TechDirt has something on VPN Unlimited here, which apparently has won various awards:https://deals.techdi...ifetime-subscription
My VPN questions?
Where does this help?
What does it mean in terms of speed and stability?
Do I take a free spin to see if I like the interface and such?
Do I have to up my techie level?
Can I tell them to not fudge my home location? I am on forums where I want to say "hey, this is from Dutchess County".
Is that a global situation?
Does anything over 3 years really matter? In a likelihood probability sense.
Am I doing this for "Jade Helm" invisibility protection?
Financial security in transactions?
Connections between puters (currently use Teamviewer and stuff like that, on low-key connections.)
To be cool.
There is a thread here about a baked-in Opera VPN.
I am generally just interested in knowing more and hearing what you folks think.
