Being at 99% sure, how about some good info or evidence to support that?Commercial VPNs are funny. Their sales pitch is, “pay us a comically low amount of money and do all your illegal activities with us!” They’re for people who are kinda paranoid, but but nearly paranoid enough
Not to put too fine a point on it, but I’m 99% sure they’re all FBI honeypots.
You could better pull off an order some food scam if you are indeed in Germany.What happens if your VPN is logged in to Russia, or Venezuela?
VPN use, it can be a red flag for scams and more.Sometimes. I find it funny how if I order something from Amazon while it's (accidently) on, the shipment tracking shows the package going to their hub next to where my VPN shows me. It takes a few extra days to get my package. When I turn it off, an order will take the most direct route to my house. I have seen sites start to block access if you are using a VPN, just like with ad blockers, and privacy badger.
I have some frustrated staff today because some disabling and re-enabling AnyConnect after an obvious attack that was failed attempts from many inappropriate nets. For your other comments, that Verizon use is a good way to work. It can beat home ISP speeds depending on your device, plan and location.I use CiscoAnyConnect VPN for my job. For personal internet use I try to not be stupid. I don't use free wi-fi, instead relying on my Verizon plan for my Internet connection, especially whenever logging into any website that involves money, such as my bank. By using Verizon and an iPhone, I think the standard protections are decent. The bigger risk is the hosts holding the data getting hacked at their end. Oh yeah, and having different, complex passwords for every site, especially ones that involve money or personal information.
