I just got a push notification to try Malwarbytes VPN trial. I am wondering if anyone has tried it?
I have not tried it myself.
Some more info can be found here:

Why the hell every security company now offers VPN? Some of them aren't even anonymous as they claim because most of them keep logs.
It's advised that you do your own research before buying into any product. Malwarebytes partnered with a reputable and trusted VPN provider for their software, as with Firefox and their Private VPN.

Security and Privacy go hand in hand. You can't boast private anonymous browsing without a VPN service.

Standalone packages are my recommendation.

I tried it last night, but the internet access speed is insignificant from not using VPN

I wasn't talking about the Malwarebytes in particular; I was talking generally, regarding all security companies.

Yes, but why did they all decide to release VPN service in recent years? I think Avast was the first to offer the VPN service (at least I heard for their service first) and it seems like others just followed the lead.

VPN isn't anything new. It was always used for accessing unavailable content as well as protecting privacy.
Standalone packages are my recommendation.
As always...

Hello, I do not need to try it, I have EkspressVPN beta with the new lightway protocol & ProtonVPN Plus.
It's not that I don't want to take it for a spin, but at some point, you have to stop purchasing new software.

I am not so sure about VPN services, especially with the speed of internet connections, because usually VPN services actually reduce internet access speed from the original connection.

I think it does depend which server you are using & your connection, if you are fortunate enough to have a sever within a few hundred miles & a fast connection often the loss is negligible, for me about 10% - Again though if you have a slower connection & many have 10% may be a substantial amount + if you are distant from a server it changes things - If your connection is slow or flaky a VPN could slow things down tremendously.
