    tip : even if your vpn is tight as a vice & has absolutely no leaks, the clock on your computer will give away your real location.

    if you are using a vpn, for reasons you best know, make sure you change the time zone of your computer to a different time zone.

    I'm using Windscribe, I got the 50 gigs a month for life. I like it because I noticed a few other VPN services slow your browsing down when you start using them, where Windscribe I hardly notice any slow down at all when using.

    After trying a few VPN services, including ExpressVPN, Hotspot Shield etc.for the time being, I decided to settle for VyprVPN.

    The reason I chose this service is that they appear to be clear about their logging policy, claim to code everything in-house, claim to own and maintain their servers, claim that they don't outsource support, and for my use they are noticeably fast compared to others VPNs I have tried so far. In addition, their Chamaleon encryption seems to be effective in bypassing censure and blacklisting in certain countries while maintaining a fairly decent streaming quality.

    With that being said, I am the kind of eternally skeptical person that never really takes words (or EULAs for what matters) for granted. I know that when online total anonymity is just a myth. What I care about, however, is having a bit more control and enjoying a bit more privacy than if I didn't shield myself behind a VPN and use common sense.

    Below are some interesting links from Golden Frog's own site that I would like to share not to advertise the company, but because up to some extent they resonate with me. Read them as you please and draw your own conclusions:
