Today I take on the best of the best VPN providers that boast with top-level encryption and security protocols that are meant to give you privacy on the Internet, or even make you anonymous. But is that true?

VPNs are supposed to secure your traffic by sending it through an encrypted tunnel and give you a different IP address so that your true IP address is not revealed to the websites and services you are connecting to.

Your VPN provider can still see everything your Internet Service Provider can see: all you traffic, logs, devices, browser history… all that prevents your VPN provider from abusing this information against you is their promise. Virtual private networks offer privacy by policy, not privacy by design – that is nothing technologically prevents your VPN from monitoring your traffic and do with that whatever they want – sell it, throttle it, or censor it.

No VPN service is anonymous. Most of them require your email address upon sign-up and most payment methods will reveal your identity directly, unless they accept cryptocurrency, which is only pseudonymous, or cash, which can be truly anonymous. But cash is very rarely accepted, and even then, your VPN provider always knows your real IP address. So yes, they change your IP address, by they are also your single point of failure, so if the server or the whole VPN is compromised, all traffic leads directly to your IP address and your devices.
