There are plenty of uses for a VPN. It can keep you secure and anonymous online. It can also get you around geo-blocked content and internet censorship.
And that’s just scratching the surface.
There are also plenty of things VPNs can’t help with. Increasing your internet speed or allowing you to get around data caps are two examples.

Tough there is a time and place for free VPNs, there are several key differences between them and paid providers everyone should understand. It’s definitely a case of buyer beware.
