Internet users have increasingly recognized the importance of virtual private networks (VPNs) in terms of content restrictions, censorships, anonymity and privacy. With the many VPNs to choose from, making the right choice can be difficult for users. That’s why users have to know how to differentiate a bad VPN from the good. Here are some ways to identify rogue VPNs:
- Unexplained Details. Often, a bad VPN only makes claims even if they don’t really have something to offer. When searching for a VPN, it’s important to check their official website to find information about the VPN. The website should be able to give information on platforms that VPN supports, the number of server locations, pricing and some technical details.
- Unrealistic Claims. While you browse through their site’s pages, check if the VPN provides realistic claims. Read the descriptions of what to expect from the VPN. While the majority of VPN services oversell themselves, the good ones don’t exaggerate their claims. For example, a dependable VP will specify the areas they can provide the best speed such as streaming or gaming. Moreover, when it comes to security, a rogue VPN claims that it will safeguard against any forms of online threats or unblock any content. Most of them make use of website logos they claim to unblock without further details.
- Outdated Information. Reliable VPNs carry out updates on a regular basis to provide better services. They often have a website that has content with recent updates or dates the update was made. This is something a bad VPN doesn’t care about so they just leave their websites with nothing but old stuff.
- Poor Support System. Bad VPNs claim they provide round-the-clock customer support and you must check this first. As threats are everywhere online, chatbots should be used in the support system. However, the majority of substandard VPNs use them. Also, don’t forget to check the FAQ section to see if the questions are given appropriate answers.
