VPNs are great, but VPN scams are out there to ruin you. To defeat them, you must know the most common ones and learn how to avoid them all. This article helps you know and achieve precisely that.


With the growing interest of people in online privacy and VPNs, you may find a brand-new VPN service arriving every week or two. However, not all of them are safe to use. Some of these VPNs mislead people with fake claims and attractive offers. As a result, people fall victim to such scams and lose their money and data. Here we have discussed the most common scams by fake VPN service providers, which you can easily avoid.

With the increasing clamor for online security and privacy, fake VPNs spring up by the minute, all promising 100% privacy, security, and safety. You will also discover that these VPNs have lots of excellent reviews and juicy offers, ranging from lifetime subscriptions to free services.

Unfortunately, many of these features are scams or, at best, bogus claims. They are misleading and only aim to dispossess you of your money, personal information (which is then sold to advertising companies, thereby exposing you to all sorts of online danger), and many other things.
