I have tried vpnbook too on my kali, but it always failed to connect to the server. As for hacking activities, you really should avoid using free vpn.

is it complicated to hack an iPhone 4, to read sms text and intercept calls and without physical access to target phone?

From what I heard, vpnbook is just one big scam.

Think about it: who in the right mind would set up huge servers for free and allow anyone to connect to it? There is no profit in that, so the company would die quickly. So how are they able to stay alive if they give away their services for free? Because YOU are the product being sold!

Alright, I have no idea how they operate, but my guess would be that they sell your data to advertisement companies, or something of that sort.

Long story short: they're not trustworthy, no matter what they are doing. The best thing you can do is purchase a paid VPN with bitcoin, as Blue Charles already mentioned.

By the way, this also applies to big social media like Facebook: they have enormous datacenters and they are upgraded on a daily basis too. Who pays for it? It isn't going to be the users, because they use the service for free. What happens next is something you should be able to figure out on your own (or read Facebook's terms & conditions).

Now I must mention, there are some small companies that can offer free services because they can survive on donations. The perfect example would be ProtonMail. But when ProtonMail will grow, will they be able to keep their service free (or keep respecting our privacy)?

I hope I helped.


I use OpenVPN. But then again what Phoenix750 just said. I guess I'll stop using that now.

OpenVPN =/= vpnbook. Vpnbook is a service, while OpenVPN is simply an open source program that allows VPN connections to be made.

A lot of paid VPN's like CyberGhost also depend on OpenVPN. You're totally fine if you use OpenVPN with trusted servers. But my opinion is that vpnbook aren't trusted server providers.


You really shouldn't. OpenVPN is a piece of software that creates and manages secure VPN connections with a custom security protocol. OpenVPN is not a service provider itself.

If you are currently subscribed to a free VPN service that implements OpenVPN, all you would really need to do is switch to a paid service. For example, Express VPN offers their service with the OpenVPN protocol. There is no need to distrust the managing software. And if you do, you are always free to check out the source code.


I second this comment.


I use Proxpn, its not awful. I bought a lifetime subscription for $40. Check it out. Its based in the Netherlands and also has a mobile app that is pretty solid.

For illegal activities you must need more than just a VPN i think.Even with encrypted tunneling good tech find you.Look at the Guy on tor.they get caught.

The difference between TOR and a VPN in this context is that with TOR you don't know who is the exit node. With a VPN, you do know who the server on the other end is, making it more trustworthy.


My friend the big problem is vpn keep log.Some company say no but I think if they have to choose between give you to authorities or a tribunal(lost money and may be even worst) they choose to give you.

The second argument from company to gain customer is we don't give log because we destroy them or we don't rec them.FALSE

They keep log for maintain task and other technical stuff.

If you wan't to be really anonym it's a job.Actually a very interesting task but hard to play.You need time , motivation ,money and you have to learn every day the new and read and read.

Look at the luzsec case on your prefer search engine.

That arrested LulzSec member is the perfect example of someone who didn't research his things before he used it.

A lot depends on what you are trying to hack and where it is located. If you want to hack an US server, then use a VPN based in Russia. Even if that VPN is keeping logs, the US has no jurisdiction in the Russian Federation. Which means: The Russian government will most likely deny the US access to those logs.


Suggest me a good vpn with no logs and non US based.

Do some searching. You'll find one in no time.


i personally use whonix gateway,or you can try Tails.
depends on what you want.

what is your opinions about Airvpn and Cyberghost?

Whenever something is free, the client is the product
