    I must say it looks interesting. Seems to have a slick and simple GUI. I did use their extension for quite a few years. But trust also plays a role. Ghostery has a bit of a shady past, it used to be owned by an advertising company. But they currently claim they "don't share any data about individual users with third parties". But does this mean that they still collect data in the background, similar to Avira and Avast?

    Guys, I'm a bit surprised. In this forum, stuff like VPN and adblockers are often discussed, nobody finds this tool to be interesting?

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Not worth $14 every month or even once to me. I doubt it's value to start.

    Tbh if you bought this I'd say you'd be the only one on Wilders. IMJS.

    I don't know what all that stuff means, but I won't be buying it, since I'm already content with uBlock and don't use VPN's at the moment. But it's still an interesting tool, eventhough I'm guessing they probably make use of telemetry. But I wonder which VPN doesn't, know what I mean? You can't even trust AV's like Avira en Avast (to name a few) anymore.

    I guess I meant I doubted anyone on Wilders would go for this.

    Yes I know, but I was talking about the abbreviations, and I was too lazy to look them up.
