Any VPN could be a trap for users. They will say that they don't keep any logs and the users will use it thinking they are perfectly safe. But the provider will collect all the info it wants. Moreover as all the traffic goes through their own server you just don't know what they are doing with the data.
An ISP can do exacly the same thing & maybe quite a few others on your data's unencrypted route, do you trust your ISP explictly? I don't :)

Same can be said for any server you visit. Nothing can be trustworthy these days, most are just deterrents for protection. VPN's are great for public Wifi hotspots, using a VPN would stop malicious people intercepting certain traffic or gaining access to accounts. Whilst HTTPS can also help reduce this aspect as well.

ISP and VPN are very different, users don't pay the ISP for privacy but the pay VPN to protect their privacy.
Also users know quite a bit about the ISPs, like their owner etc, but in case of VPN there's no info regarding their owner and where they actually belong.
An user from the US can use a VPN which is from Germany but that provider may actually be from the US itself.
Also a VPN can do things like what FB did.
What I am saying is that its really not a good idea to trust any VPN blindly.

It's based on permissions for Android, hence why Desktop clients and browser extensions are not present.

@Seed4.Me I've been having issue with your software, when I've disconnected from your service my internet sometimes will not come back on and an uninstallation of your product via Revo seems to do the trick, this could be a bug with your software atm.
