Frequently asked question:
Could software for IP protection be free of charge?
Yes, most of them are free. But along with the absence of price, there is a limitation in functionality. For the transmission of an e-mail, they are quite sufficient for high-speed gaming traffic – no. In confirmation of the fact, let’s turn to the research conducted on free VPNs for Android:
- 22% do not fully encrypt traffic, which reduces the VPN security feature proportionally.
- 34% contain malware of an advertising nature (advertisers’ money compensates for the costs of developing and researching programs and maintaining their own network of servers).
- 15% of these free VPNs are available to state security agencies (state power structures) in more than 30 countries.
To summarize, we note that using a free VPN service is better than a completely defenseless connection for PS (4-5).
