    If you really cared about security/privacy, you wouldn’t be using a VPN. Who’s the say they’re actually keeping their word and aren’t a compromised bottleneck?

    Use Tor, I2P, or a similar darknet if you cared

      I think the takeaway from this story is the misleading branding by the Opera browser. They are calling it a VPN which sets some expectations for people. Why didn’t they call it a proxy in their marketing material in the first place?

          A lot of ppl I know use a vpn through tor so that tor exit node traffic doesn’t get filtered, also end to end encryption to the vpn through tor

            this is granted you don’t purchase or interact with that vpn except through tor and with cryptocurrency etc
