How to Critically Choose a VPN Service (Talk and Q&A)

In a market so saturated with commercial VPN providers, it is a challenge not only to determine if you need a VPN or not, but also to navigate search results and the network of VPN review sites as you try to find a trustworthy VPN.

What are the key things you should look for when determining if a VPN service is trustworthy? How can you determine if a VPN recommendation site is legitimate? What red flags signal that you should steer clear of a VPN provider?

In this session, you will learn how to recognize signals of trustworthiness in VPN providers and more effectively analyze VPN recommendation resources in your search for a VPN service that respects your privacy, safety and security as a user.

Note: This session is not geared toward high-risk users or those for whom anonymity and/or circumventing severe censorship is a necessity.

Bio: Viktor Vecsei is a privacy activist, researcher and writer. He is the COO at IVPN, a privacy-focused VPN provider, where he works on increasing transparency, honest communication and improving ethical standards in the commercial VPN space.
