Using your own VPN server is a very great deal because we don’t recommend using free VPNs. Even if free VPNs work, you can’t trust the servers managing the connection. Many free VPNs are unreliable. It is free because you may route your data via their servers. Then they may then sell or misuse your info. So you should only use trusted VPNs.
