Many VPN companies claim 'Total Privacy' with '100% security' which is completely false

VPNs can only hide your internet interaction from your local ISP.  A VPN does not make you anonymous, and does not give you any additional security.

Kitboga, a youtuber, makes a good video on this, as he mentions all the various reasons why a VPN isn’t always the best idea.

This does not mean a VPN is completely useless though, it has its place, and it can improve privacy when it is used correctly.  The problem is that 90% of VPN users don’t know how to use a VPN in a manner that would benefit them.
