    I'm toying with the idea of using the Browsec VPN addon for Firefox. I know that it cannot be compared with a "real" VPN, but I would just like to know whether this FF addon can generally be recommended. Thank you.

    ok to use to bypass the corporate fw @ work to access content that doesn't require an account (so as to prevent identity theft or snooping), to access geo-restricted content. not ok to check your mails or bank account or to log in to your social media accounts, etc.

    Yep, this has so far also been my impression since I installed this addon a couple of hours ago. It does work but, as you mentioned, it shouldn't be used for really important stuff, such as banking etc. Thanks, @imdb
