    If Hola is not safe how about paying for it... you're clever.

    What do you mean ?

    I just want to know if the free version of Hola is safe if not does the premium version make it any safer ?

    He's probably asking about the methods employed by Hola Free vs Hola Pro. Not the company behing Hola itself.

    More about the subject
    http://www.techspot.com/news/60828-popular-free-vpn-service-hola-dodgy.html

    You don't seem to be very impressed with the possibility of being part of a botnet.

    "As Luminati essentially functions as a Tor-like network, buyers of the service's bandwidth could end up hijacking a Hola user's connection to traffic child porn, access illegal marketplaces or perform other malicious activities. The Luminati network anonymizes their users in such a way that to authorities, the people seen to be accessing illegal sites are the 'innocent' Hola users."
