The reason is that I consider my Internet provider to be a MitM.
in such cases, you would just swap one MitM by another.
Here in the States, at least, they know everything about our data history and are permitted to cash in on it.
Why do you think VPN providers are not going to do the same? Further, why to you think their uplinks/ISPs will not share or sell the data? Those will be Tier-1 providers such as Level3, NTT, AT&T, etc. in most cases. They don’t sell cookies.
They are also almost certainly willing to share our data with government agencies.
well, if they are not willing to do so, governments usually have enough possibilities to “encourage” them to share data.
Leaving us to set this up manually seems to me to be an even riskier option.
I agree, but to be honest, I never came across a single argument for using a VPN provider.
If I got it right, your ISP seems to be the problem. Why don’t you set up a proxy in a datacenter (perhaps in another country), build a net-to-net VPN connection to it, and route your traffic through it? If this is not possible or too expensive, please consider using Tor instead.
Again, thanks for all your efforts on a great product.
You’re welcome. We’re here to help.
Thanks, and best regards,
