    So, I have recently started using Windows and have switched from Mac, and previously, I use to setup my VPN manually, but as I have switched to Windows, I got a standalone complimentary Windows VPN product from the vendor. Can anybody tell me how good Ivacy VPN is for Windows? Should I use it? The reviews seem good, but I need recommendations based on personal experience.

    VPNs in general are a bad idea, specially if they are free or minimal low fee.

    i've zero recommendations that could be made as the recommendation would be to avoid it like the plague.

    "VPNs in general are a bad idea".. Why do you say so.. I've used VPN several times and generally, most of users use it for various purposes..Are there any specific security risks related to VPN to make such a shady statement?

    considering the relatively recent number of VPN services that have been grossly compromised, and/or ran by inept individuals, you're trusting a 3rd party that really hasn't been truly vetted to ensure what they say they are doing with a vpn is actually what's going on.

    There are almost NO services that exist out there in which adding additional middle men has ever been to anyones benefit. Unless you can build and run your own VPN, you may as well be dumping everything you're doing willfully onto some strangers lap for them to fiddle and sort through as they want when they want and also store it. There is actually very little regulations regarding vpns and what they can and cannot get away with let alone, lack oversight.
