Mentioned VPN claims "no logging", but privacy policy states:


So basically, this "VPN" which is so secure and meant to make you private, knows you have installed Tor, at what time and date you accessed it, which specific websites you visited, with what original IP address, your full name, email address, billing information (despite its free?!). LOL!
  • 100% free
  • No ads
  • No limit
  • 24/7 support
  • No premium version
  • Closed source
Nice try NSA.
The only free thing about it is the download. I installed it and now get a pop-up message every time I fire up my PC advising my trial has expired and offering me a 65% discount on the "Premium" version. The best offer after the discount is just over USD50 for 15 months. Interesting. 100% free? No premium version? I'm removing it as there are better products in this category.

Lol, I'm losing the count of new VPNs, every day a new one, at least for me.

"Different from other VPN services, iTop VPN does not collect any information from users, even the login information is only used for identification purpose and accessing iTop VPN services. In addition, iTop has a great support team which can continue offering prompt and effective support to users 7*24 hours!"
seems to be OK - I installed it and ran malware scanner and anti virus and all came back clean. Just works as far as I can see.

When you use free services, you get what you play for.
While it originally was free, you now only can access 16 servers (all in the US) for free, with only 700MB of data a day. So it's basically a paid only service now.

Antivirus scans don't give an indication of whether the service can be trusted or not. Having said that, the privacy policy they have now, is a lot better than the one they originally copied and pasted from Hola VPN's website. In addition, when I tried it when it first released, I was impressed by the speed. It may not be a terrible VPN, but there is little known about it at this point and their association with IObit may be of concern for some (but isn't for me).

May I share what I have found to be the best free VPN service?! The Swiss-made Proton VPN has no rivals, IMHO.
The "Free" version can be used on 1 device only, and uses only 3 VPN servers, but has no other limits, it is industrial-grade VPN.
The Free Windscribe VPN (a Canadian VPN) is also excellent, can be used on 1 device only, has 10 GB monthly at full speed, and uses 10+ servers.
My personal choice for a payed VPN has gone to Windscribe, which is the only one that offers "Lifetime License", which I have bought for $99. It is a 10-year long license, that will be prolonged free without any problem in 2031 when the user asks them to do that.

I have also had this message from the system tray, about "iTop VPN", and their scary message. I also suppose it comes from the IObit channel of advertising system tray messages.

Once you reach a certain amount of data it lock down your internet access till you pay their extortion
The free and paid services are different. For free, you only have access to a very small amount of locations, and this is not the only VPN which offers a very limited free service.

The internet is not locked, you'll just have to turn off the VPN.
