I have no restrictions to circumvent. So I stay up with my full speed instead of privacy.
Don't really use a VPN. I trust the sites I go on.
NordVPN is a solid vpn, they always rank highly on security audits and reviews, and they're still one of the cheapest paid options. As usual, the media blows up this sort of thing, even techcrunch. About 5 minutes of skimming NordVPN (@NordVPN) on Twitter and Why the NordVPN network is safe after a third-party provider breach | NordVPN will show it isn't a big deal.
NordVPN does not keep logs, so what could a malicious actor get, even if they walked out of the building with the server and had all the time in the world?
