Wether the NSA can penetrate all protocols used by VPN providers remains a mystery and before credible evidence to the contrary is available, it is reasonable to consider VPNs using L2TP/IPSec or OpenVPN with strong encryption safe to use.
Is PureVPN, an alternative to Hide-My-Ass? I certainly think so! 300 servers in 19 countries offer a lot of flexibility. So how does it stack up?
Anyone considering a VPN service should start off by asking themselves a few questions. First, what’s most important to me? Is it privacy? Speed?
