VPN (Virtual Private Network) is one of the alternative options commonly chosen by traders to overcome the blocking problem experienced by a number of forex broker websites.
In order to save costs, not a few traders also access forex broker websites using free VPNs, even though, there are a number of risks of free VPNs that threaten user data.
Risk Free VPN
Jhon Mason of TheBestVPN.com has revealed three possible risks of using a free VPN, namely:
- Many free VPN service providers are not transparent about how they make money, oftentimes, if they don’t offer you the product, then you are most likely the product.
- Many free VPN service providers sell your data to partner companies or to third parties who are willing to pay a premium.
- Several free VPNs have been caught red-handed for carrying out covert practices such as ad injection, redirecting traffic to affiliates and so on, research to identify these unscrupulous acts has also been carried out by CSIRO, which is an Australian scientific research institute.
They, some of the free VPN service providers are Hola, Betternet, Hotspot Shield, FinchVPN, Onavo Protect, TouchVPN, Private Pipe VPN, Tukler, Go VPN, and Hexatech.
Because many free VPN service providers misuse user data, Mason advises against using free VPNs, because according to him, free VPNs also tend to store user log data and can leak user DNS.
Despite these risks, Indonesian forex traders often have no better choice than a VPN to access forex brokers, if so, what can we do?
