Correct me if I am wrong, anyone can join the project and host a VPN server. So they can actually be monitoring/storing your traffic for whatever purpose.
If you think about this, why would anyone provide this for free? It cost them to provide the internet bandwidth. And if it is free and the server run for months even after it is well known (like someone posted it in SD or any VPN forum), they must be getting something out of this to offset the cost. So monitoring/storing your traffic for whatever purpose may be one of them. Could be owned by government or even the Media companies themselves.
Never used a VPN before but I've wondered if this is what I need when traveling abroad and trying to access my financial accounts. When I am abroad and try to look at my bank account info, I am blocked for trying to access the website from outside the country. Would this work and would it even be safe to access my financial accounts through a service like this?
I wouldn't feel comfortable with them logging my info and dealing with finances. The same principle could be used to your own home network though. it's possible to set-up your own vpn with newer routers, Or a much easier way would be to install a program like "logmein" and just control your computer at home.
